Join Infinite Spirit Sounds at The Psychedelic Society on 18th April, for a day immersing yourself in a healing journey which will include Psychedelic Yoga, Chakra Toning & Gong Bath, Sharing Circle and Psychedelic Sound Journey.
This day is about nurturing yourself, letting go of stress, journeying within & feeling restored, relaxed and connected.
In Psychedelic Yoga we practice yogic techniques to prepare the body & mind for the psychedelic experience, whilst developing tools which can assist in the navigation & integration of those experiences. The session will include postures, breathing techniques, mantras, mudras, philosophy & meditation, in a supportive, fun & friendly environment. This workshop is suitable for everyone, whether or not you have experience with psychedelic medicines. The yoga postures & meditation techniques are drawn from a wide range of disciplines and can be practiced by all levels of ability.
Chakra toning is a healing practice which combines sounds, visualization & intention, to open & align the chakras, gaining a sense of balance & inner peace. We will be creating a safe space to explore the use of our voices through a fun & creative guided process. You don’t need to have any experience using your voice to enjoy this practice. The session will conclude with a gong bath.
We will be holding a sharing circle to create a container for people to express anything they wish in a non-judgemental supportive environment. This is an opportunity to share about anything that arises within you at that time. You can of course share as much or as little as you wish.
Towards the end the day there will be an hour and a half of Psychedelic Sound Journey, which is an immersive & meditative sound healing experience. As you relax under a blanket, the sound waves will carry you on a journey deep within. We use a host of instruments to weave a tapestry of sound, in combination with guided meditation, to facilitate an enhanced state of consciousness. The live sounds are created with a 38” Sun Gong, 38” Earth gong, shamanic drumming, singing bowls, hang drum, flutes, harmonica, chimes, shruti box, overtone signing & medicine songs. We also incorporate samples from nature & work with a loop station to develop multi-layered interlinked loops of sound, to craft a journey which ebbs & flows through numerous atmospheric soundscapes.

“I had a great time – Jamie and Phil are so warm and gentle and everyone attending really got into the spirit of the event. It was a great mix of movement, sound, sharing, being and journeying. The sound journey lived up to expectations as a psychedelic climax to the whole event. I loved the format.” Kinga
“A deeply immersive experience, taking you gradually deeper and deeper into a state of peaceful awareness. Artfully woven, the sounds, chanting and spoken word worked together to significantly deepen my meditation and expand my consciousness. The setting was made safe from the outset, with a focus on full acceptance of the self and a chance to consider my intention for the session. I felt genuine goodwill from these facilitators and wholly supported on my own journey of healing. A must for any explorer of psychedelic consciousness!” Fabien
“I expected it to be nice, but this was an overwhelmingly beautiful and deep experience.” Carmela
“Phil & Jamie are two great facilitators that hold the space beautifully. They helped me to feel at ease and to let go. What a journey! These guys clearly have a deep knowledge of the divine space. I haven’t been to a sound journey as well considered as this one.” Luke
