Embodied Sound

Let the Sound touch You. Touch the Sound!
September 8 – September 11, 2022

Book your ticket(s)

To be attracted to sounds and vibrations is part of being a human. Wherever there are people – there is the creation and exploration of sound, music, rhythm, dance and movement. We sound for ceremonies, for healing, for communication, for connection and for pure enjoyment. This year, for the first time, we are gathering at the grounds of Ängsbacka, to let our feet touch the soil, to join our hands and hearts and use our senses to tune into the drumbeat and singing of Mother Nature herself. Together we form a circle of Embodied Sound. 

Time to Rest. Time to Learn. Time to Reconnect.

All of us are instruments. We can use our voices not only to communicate in words. With practice and allowance, our bodies can become a most powerful vessel for a wide range of self expression; from the softest whisper to your unmasked, primordial sound originating from deep inside.

Embodied Sound invites you to a safe, supportive and co-creative environment where participants and facilitators together explore how different instruments, including your body, can become a gateway to musicality. Let’s have fun learning from each other and practise staying connected to ourselves, honouring the vulnerability and power of our voice and our personal expression of musicality.

Allow yourself to be touched by sound.

Embodied Sound offers a well balanced program of sound healing science, therapy, life transforming experiential workshops and beautiful concerts. Renowned space holders will offer their guidance and tools such as gongs, chimes and drums for you to experience and learn about the therapeutic properties of sound. Explore your own voice and embrace deep listening and enhance your receptivity. Practice letting go and allowing yourself to be carried into relaxation and rejuvenation. Get to know silence from a deeper perspective than just being the absence of sound.

Is Embodied Sound for me?

Whether you are already using sound as a part of your practice or even as a tool in your professional life or if you are just beginning to open up to your curiosity for what sound can mean to you – the circle will benefit from your presence these days. You participate fully on your own terms and choose freely from the workshops, lectures and concerts offered on the program. Three times per day you are served nourishing vegetarian meals from Ängsbacka’s kitchen and in between you can treat yourself to hot and cold drinks or sweet and savoury snacks in the Café.

You will also get the chance to be part of a Sharing circle, a smaller group of people that journey together and meet each day during the event. For many, Sharing becomes a very important part of the day; for connection, for slowing down, allowing integration and the practice of speaking one’s truth in the moment. The gatherings such as the Welcome ceremony and the Morning meetings will partly have a practical and informative function and hopefully so much more as we come together in collective sounding, silence, reflection, meditation and movement.

Ängsbacka’s closest neighbour is the forest and the lake is within walking distance from Ängsbacka. Nature plays an important role in Embodied Sound and we are so lucky to be surrounded by its beauty and nourishment for body, mind and soul – we encourage you to take the opportunity to simply be in nature these days.
