Yoga of Sound and Chocolate – Retreat & Training,
May 17 – June 8, 2018

Organizers: Paul/Patita Pavana Das, Thomas Love Power and Bachan Kaur
 

The Power of Sound Heals and Transforms Lives
Our current reality is a reflection of our vibrational state - Change your frequency and change
your reality!
 
We invite you on a life changing journey into sacred sound. It's time to live life in tune with your
heart and soul purpose!
 
Through this practice we open our hearts, come into allignment, access deep states of consciousness and healing, fully embodying our divine and creative potential.


What is Yoga of Sound & Chocolate?
Yoga of Sound and Chocolate is a revolutionary spiritual practice.
A blissful fusion of, Heart Alchemy, Sound Healing, Sacred Chant and Sacred Cacao Medicine.
 
Fusing ancient, contemporary, esoteric and yogic sound practices, this unique retreat and training will enable you to create and facilitate sacred sound and chocolate offerings. The immesion is a two-step experiential, learning-by-doing journey of empowerment. Starting with a deep experiential dive into the healing and transformation potential of sacred sound and chocolate – you will experience many different modalities of sound healing, sacred singing and ceremony. Then you will enter an accelerated learning journey where you will be safely supported into discovering and sharing your own power as a sacred sound channel and facilitator of sacred sound journeys.


Who is this programme for?
This immersion is suitable for anyone who wants to live life more fully – no experience with sound necessary! These tools can be used as a personal daily practice and can be shared as ceremony or integrated into other modalities like Yoga, Ecstatic dance, Massage therapy, Kirtan etc.

We open-heartedly invite all those feeling called to deepen their spiritual practice and enhance their relationship with sound. In particular people who we feel can benefit from integrating this practice into their own profession like Yoga teachers, Aspiring Song Carriers, Kirtan Leaders, Holistic Therapists, Teachers, Sound Healers, Musicians and those who wish to share Cacao.
 


Organizers

Paul/Patita Pavana Das
A lifelong musician and with many lifetimes as a Bhakta, Paul splits his time between Ashram living and life on the road, spreading the vibration of devotion.

The past few years have been a year of blossoming for Paul's current focus, the Hanuman Project, from birthing 'EnChanted'
a unique Bhakti & Sound Healing Festival-Retreat to sharing Kirtan and Ceremony around the world. In 2017 Paul visited
7 countries to share his passion for sacred song and ceremony, highlights include: Offering at sacred music festivals; Beloved, Singing Alive & Bhakti Fest (USA), Recording the debut Hanuman Project Album in Los Angeles, Supporting medicine retreats and ceremony in the high Andes of Southern Peru and of course the 3 week Yoga of Sound an Chocolate programme in Guatemala. Recently gifted a name, 'Patita Pavana Das' will be travelling to Vrindavan, India in early 2018 to dive even deeper into the culture and music of the Vaishnavas.   

Paul's approach to sound and chant is that they are the keys to unlock the power and beauty of the heart, and as such are available to each and every one of us at all times. He is passionate about creating devotional music both powerful and accessible, hoping envoking courage to live from the heart always and to support with solely love . 

Thomas Love Power

The center bridges the sound healing traditions of the ancient Temples and Mystical Schools with cutting edge sonic, light and quantum technology. 
 
He loves to explore how sacred sound opens the heart, fires up our creativity and allows access to more of who we came to be. He works with an abundance of sacred instruments; tibetan singing bowls, gongs, flutes, monochords, harps, tuning forks, duduks, tampura, pre-hispanic sonic tools, crystal bowls, harmonium, shrutis, drums, chimes, bells and the power of voice. He weaves mystical sound landscapes that allow deep relaxation and opens portals to altered states of consciousness and soul activation. And holds space where everyone can feel safe to let go and experience the power of their voice, calling in their purpose, dreams and wisdom of their hearts – empowering all to share this everywhere.

Thomas has 20 years of experience in facilitation and teacher trainings and pioneers creative learning environments for the new wave of sound healers and musical space holders calling in a New Earth of heart centered living.
