Winter Solstice Insight Blindfolded Dance & Sound Healing Journey


Sun 23rd June 2024, 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM


1 Old Pacific Hwy
Burringbar NSW 2483


Insight – An Inner Alchemy Ritual

Hear the Guidance * Receive the Vision
Honor the Darkness & Connect with the Light

You are warmly invited to gather with the community to harness the energy of the Solstice and embark on your own deeply nourishing and personal transformational journey.

Winter Solstice is a time to honour our inner world, to hone our ability to see in the dark and to kindle the light within. A place to journey deep within to receive inner guidance, insight and vision for the path ahead.

So what can you expect?

Imagine yourself walking into a beautiful spacious hall, being greeted by kindred spirits whilst bathed in the perfume of the aromatic cleansing properties of frankincense and copal. You find your place in the circle, set down your cushion, sheepskin and blankets and come to the centre altar of flowers and crystals to add your altar offering to recharge in the energy we create together.

We will open with a communal invocation spoken from the many mouths and mother tongues/languages of those who are present. With your choice of ceremonial cocoa or blue lotus and artemisia tea to accompany you on your journey, we will take a sacred pause in reverence and respect, and give thanks for our blessed lives.

You’re then gently guided into a somatic meditation space to fully embody your intentions. Covering our eyes to allow our sensory perception to take you deeper within, your will be safely guided through a 1 hour Inner Alchemy Blindfolded Dance, followed by a 75mins Sound Healing Journey. To complete you will receive ample time and space to bask in your Creative Integration process; to anchor and craft the magic and medicine you received into your very own Clay Candle Holder.

The space will remain quiet with reverence and respect for participants to engage with their own personal journaling until we will seal the ceremony with a collective closing prayer, weaving all that’s been received through each other’s hearts and minds, and lighting our candles together under the stars upon the earth.

There will be time set aside to engage in quite social dinner and tea time by the fire and you are most welcome to slip out into the night back to your beds when you are ready for your dreamtime journey.

Zarn – Zarn has always had a deep awareness of sound and music since childhood. From performing in a Balinese Gamelan as a child, to a former lead vocalist in a rock band, to then studying Sound Engineering in her mid 20s. Through trauma she disconnected from this part of herself for some time. Its not until she fell chronically ill, the passion for Sound Healing began.

‘My first experience with Sound Healing was so profound. A light ignited in my heart and it felt like coming home. This guided me on my path to my true authentic self and the obsession with healing with sound began. I am now passionate about creating the ultimate environment for deep healing to occur, to bring you back to your true essence.’
