Sound Camp What's On

The what's on for the 2018 camp is now complete.


Friday Evening


Around the campfire, on Friday night, Aya and Belén will guide you to connect with your spirit. Supported by the Fire, native american flutes, drums and medicine songs, you will journey within. Medicine songs have this unique ability to touch you deeply, flutes are truly enchanting, and the drum is the heartbeat... It is such a delight to gather around the campfire. Our ancestors (whichever land you come from) had special appreciacion for fire, it's an ancient way to come together, share, connect, transform... Lets live the life that we would love. See you there.

Belen Prado

I have been teaching Native American flute workshops in Bristol for about a year and a half. I have flutes for students and I can have maximum ten people per workshop. This workshop is for people who have never played the flute before and for the ones who have been playing on their own but don’t feel very confident. It is not necessary to know music in advanced as it is a very simple instrument and easy to play. This beginner workshop is an introduction to the Native American flute and the main objective is to get familiar with the instrument. The workshop is quite practical but you will also learn about its origins, the way it works and its benefits. At the end of the workshop people will be able to improvise their own music.

Belen will be running her workshop in the big tipi an hour in the morning and repeated in the afternoon.



Peter Whitehart

Introduction to the gong workshop

I will be running a introduction to the gong workshop in the morning.
This will be for complete beginners or regular gong players.
I will be offering my own technique of playing the gongs and going into small detail about the effects the gong bath has on the human brain (entrainment) and how to time the playing technique to induce entrainment.
Everyone will have ten minutes to play the gongs and I will then finish off with a 30 or 45 minute gong bath to give attendees the experience of my way of playing.

I very much encourage those who want to play the gongs to find their own personal technique.


Freestyle Drumming

Freestyle drumming is a Un lead drumming session where the group just drums with no fixed agenda.
Most people expect a workshop leader/someone in charge of the group to be present someone to follow etc.
I will give a brief outline of what a freestyle drum circle is, get it started and then leave attendees to it.
I have been attending my Exmouth drum circle for four years and its just the most magical experience.
No drumming experience necessary, just come and drum.

What is Sacred Sound?
Sacred sound refers to a variety of practices in which music and sound are used to increase health, well-being, and a balanced sense of harmony, for individuals and for communities. It facilitates an awareness of integration and wholeness.
Drawing on many world cultures and spiritual traditions, sacred sound practices encompass music's ability to calm and soothe, as well as sound's capacity to awaken, balance, and energise. Spiritually therapeutic, sacred sound practices are varied and universal.
Music has been proven to reduce physical pain and to relieve emotional suffering. Spiritually, music can relieve stress and help transcend life's challenges. Music, as well as certain sacred sound practices, can help us concentrate and bring clarity to our lives. Sacred sound traditions also focus on increasing and balancing energy flow within the body, which can result in a release of new creativity and an openness to fresh possibilities.
As well as those undergoing medical treatment, anyone who is experiencing the normal ebb and flow of life can benefit from the use and practice of sacred sound. Sacred sound creates sacred space. Like prayer, it connects us with the sacred source of life, bringing a sense of divine love and care.
This awareness of the  sacred connects us in profound ways to the divine, as well as to those around us. Spiritually, this sense of sacred connection can result in feelings of peace and assurance, comfort and solace, a deeper trust and sense of well-being.
‘Before resound you have no power. You go in the mountain, you say one word, that echo will go thousands times more, thousands of miles. That is the power of the resounding sound or anahad. Unlimited sound vibrates and creates light and creates life’.
Yogi Bhajan
‘Sound is the source of all manifestation.
He who knows the secret of the sound knows the mystery of the whole universe’.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
