Lost in pronunciaton

Ivan Aristeguieta is ridiculously funny. What’s better is watching people try and pronounce his name – and then of course, it’s his deep dive into Aussie culture. Ivan has lived in Australia for ten years – as he says ‘living amongst you, observing you, learning about you’ – and now he makes a very good living taking the piss out of you. ‘I am a true blue, dinky-di Venez-stralian. Nah, she’ll be right! (Who is she by the way?).’

Jon and Si from Dream Drone and Steve and Anna from Healing Hertz are excited to bring you the best opportunity for the biggest session of natural vibes known. If you want a journey into the unknown this could be the one for you. If you love sound you would be crazy to miss it!

After experiencing each others’ performances and hosting each other to a much needed sound session, Healing Hertz and Dream Drone came to the natural conclusion that the most amazing way they could take individuals on a deep journey would be to collaborate and engulf the mind, body and senses with the deep primal sounds and vibrations of the gongs and didgeridoos.

‘We are vibrational beings and acoustic instruments present the most harmonious wave formed vibrations that the body can receive. The vibrations can offer deep transformational spaces, soothing meditative resting places or a journey back to your own natural frequency’, they say.

The Dream Drone is a unique sound pioneered by Si Mullumby that is created using Australia’s iconic instrument the Yidaki, also known as the didgeridoo. The instrument is used in its capacity to create the primordial vibration, a sound that has no rhythm or melodic hook lines, that participants can feel moving inside the room, the body and thus the mind. This sound has the power to take the listener on an inner journey that is as varied and individual as there are people on the planet. For some it is mystical, for others it creates sensations in the body, some just enjoy the warmth and good energy created.

Healing Hertz is pioneered by Steve and Anna. They experienced the healing power of the gongs many years ago and were inspired to fully embrace it as a healing modality and raise vibrational frequency by introducing it to as many people as possible. They have been running sound healing journeys and transformational experiences for the last 4 years through small and large groups. Through this healing experience there is the opportunity for one to become deeply relaxed, nourished & re-energised.

This will be a lay down event so we recommend comfortable clothes, mats, a pillow , a blanket and drinking water.
