    Join us as we sound forth with an “AH” projected with the energy of compas-sion and love which we will send out as a sonic valentine to Gaia, our Mother Earth, projecting it along the main ley lines which run through the Monastery:

    1). Heal Our Planet!
    2). Heal Our Waters!
    3). Raise Our Consciousness!

    Scientific data measuring the effects of World Sound Healing Day provided by the Global Consciousness Project, the Global Coherence Initiative and other organisations shows great promise with regard to the power of intentionalised sacred sound to help create positive shifts and changes on our planet.


    We heal our planet and we heal ourselves.
    We heal ourselves and we heal our planet.
    (Jonathan Goldman, creator of World Sound Healing Day)

    11:00 12:30
    John Hofton will lead us through some toning and mantra chanting (which will include the Invocation to Shamael, the Angel of Sound)

    John will then will lead us as we sending it out our intentionalised heart-centred Ah to the Gaia matrix, bringing healing to us all :
