Embodied Voice and Vessel – A journey into primordial essence of Being – with Chelan Freeman & Almunis. June 27th – July 1st, 2023 in Monte Velho, Portugal

Before the story, beneath the trauma. You are sound, you are movement, you are creation.
Inside each one of us pulsates a creative source, primordial and alive with possibilities. When
we attune to the sense of Aliveness which pulsates within the richness of our bodies, we can
start emptying out to recognize the fullness of each passing moment.

In this 5 day immersion, we will awaken through still motion, moving motion, embodied voice and vibration as a way to meet ourselves and become an instrument, a vessel, an offering.

Life truly is a dance. The softer and more fluid we become within our bodies the more aware of
our inner current we become, and the more we can be present and responsive to the invitation
to co-create with the impulse and sacred intelligence that wants to move and manifest through

Come learn and activate your embodied voice and vessel with 2 expansive teachers in the
field of sound healing, voice activation and somatic movement. We will be at the gorgeous
Monte Velho Retreat center in West Algarve, Portugal.


“This immersion has opened a locked door in my soul. I connected to a part of myself that I had
never met before. Now I feel the flow of emotions moving like a dance, and I feel freedom and
bliss! Thank you!“
Tunc Suerdas (Turkey)

“I now feel the joy of inhabiting my world, and the trust that I am never alone. I’m experiencing
more intimacy with myself. I can now allow myself not to be perfect and I’m loving every part of
my expression.“
Maria Elena L’abbate (Italy)
