Wellness Immersion Retreat: Sound Therapy with Billy Zanski
6-Day/5-Night, Sunday – Friday
Schedule and Details:
Escape the habits of a fast-paced life and take a conscious step toward harmonizing with other like minded individuals while integrating a healthy lifestyle for the body, mind, spirit, while connecting to nature. The daily routine focuses on introducing educational components for self-care, holistic fitness, nutrition, tools for inspiration and knowledge to enhance one’s quality of life mindfully designed by OM Sanctuary’s expert staff.
Disconnect from a highly connected world and reconnect to an inner source of balance on the beautiful 54-acre nature based campus, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains above the French Broad River in Asheville, NC.
The Sound Therapy Transformation Arts sessions led by Billy Zanski will help to slow the breath and shift individuals’ brainwaves. As the powerful sound waves wash over each participant’s body, stress and worry dissipate and the mind’s thoughts move into the background. Focusing on the landscape of peaceful sounds helps to activate the deep intelligence within the body and spirit. Billy opens up space for others to feel expanded, connected and held in peace- opening participants up to a greater perspective, inviting subtle shifts and healing to happen spontaneously. Learn all about sound healing instruments, how sound is used in tribal cultures and how they affect the body, mind and spirit. Each session will build on the next allowing for intention setting and clearing out of old or stagnant energy.
