“I gained insight into stillness. Learning how to relax, breathe and allow a unity of thoughts and emotions. The music was for me, the conduit that allowed me to release my inhibitions. Prior to the retreat I found high emotions to be limiting, hurtful and kind of dangerous but during last weekend, I was shown the tools of how to manage that perspective. I will continue to work on this as it has been the most liberating experience.” Nicky Elliot, Sound to Silence Retreat Participant, April 2019, Mozambique.
