About the Event
Would you like to experience bliss while learning something new? then this one-day- retreat is for you
RESTORING HARMONY THROUGH SOUND is a dynamic and transformative one-day experience of learning Tibetan bowls and wellbeing through sound therapy. Expect a holistic interactive experience, guided by two health professionals offering: yoga (asana practice), breathing (pranayama), meditation, voice exploration, with music, sound bath and dance. On the heights of Bandol, on the French Riviera, surrounded by nature, the environment contributes to the deep healing of the mind, body and soul.
Harmonise: Balance & Communion With Oneself
Everything vibrates, everything sings! Like what we learned in school, modern science now reveals that our brain is not a computer but rather an orchestra that resonates with external stimuli: whether it is the noise of the street, the waves of our phone, the music we listen to, the tone of voice of our interlocutor, each "frequency" has an effect on our mood and state of health: from discomfort to well-being, sound can make us nervous, but it can also be used as a tool for harmonization by plunging our whole being into a state of homeostasis (regulatory process that restores and maintains well-being). You will eliminate stress, boost your immunity and restore communication between the right and left hemispheres of the brain, plunging you into a state of pure harmony. Sound therapy, also subtitled "passive meditation" is effortless and often feels miraculous.
You will leave as if on a cloud, having gained new resources applicable when back home.
The goal is to get rid of stress, spend a day of harmony of the mind the body and the spirit, and to learn the basics of sound therapy to use for your self or others: playing your Tibetan bowl will help you meditate, pacify yourself, but also pacify your loved ones, and who knows, will perhaps give birth to a new passion within?
True happiness must be sought through self-knowledge. When you reconnect with your optimal vibration, you will regain your vital energy, elevate the soul, and feel able to return to your daily life rejuvenated and at peace.

The Benefits Of Sound Therapy
"If you want to discover the secrets of the Universe
Think in terms of energy, frequencies and vibrations"
90% of our visits to the doctor are attributed to stress, which is the main cause of chronic diseases. Sound healing reduces stress and anxiety, strengthens immunity, reduces sleep disorders, improves its quality and eliminates insomnia. It promotes cardiac and cerebral resonance, hormonal balance, reduces high blood pressure and induces an altered state of consciousness (Lucid Dreaming). It increases clarity and lightness of the mind, soothes emotional distress and encourages the regeneration and rejuvenation of cells. Studies report that sound healing is effective against kidney and bladder stones, in the elimination of menstrual pain and other aches and in relieving joint and bone pains.
Sound healing is also an opened window to your "unconscious", or 3rd eye. Patients report seeing colors, being brought back to certain distant emotional memories and floating, like in a dream. The wisdom we extract from these experiences helps identify our fears, shames, guilt, sadness and in resolving our emotional wounds stored in the limbic memory.
Some practitioners and scientists claim that in principle "Everything can be healed by sound because any solid emits energy in the form of vibrations which can be modified and harmonized." Others believe that sound therapy is effective for "All stress-induced diseases". In other words, almost all of them.
