VOICE OF THE DESERT RETREAT
2023 APR 27 -MAY 4, WADI RUM, PETRA, DEAD SEA
With Dutch Voice Healer Dymphi Peeters
Intuitive music and sound have a healing effect on your well being. It relaxes and brings you back to your source within. It also helps you to express and release emotions without getting stuck in words, a beautiful and pure way to cleans your system from old pain and energetic blocks. It then opens the way to tap into your authentic source of wisdom once again so you find more and deeper wisdom, joy, inspiration, power and healing to share.
We invite you to immerse yourself in the world of sound, into the potent medicine of vocal toning and singing during our Voice of the Desert Retreat in the Jordan. You don't have to be a musician to hear and express your inner music. Life is one big ceremony. And we have all the tools, power and potential lying dormant within us to live it in accordance to our dreams. Are you ready to release the wild and raw beauty that is you?
We - Dymphi and Sandra - share a great passion to inspire people to feel their inner knowing and express their personal truth. On this retreat we support guests through yoga, meditations, vocal toning and reflecting with horses to discover their own music, voice and sounds. A journey that leads you from your head to the intelligence of your body. We invite you to hear your own powerful inner guidance and to dare to follow it, no matter what the circumstances. To return to your own creative source and become a free and fuller expression of who you truly are.
Energy is the invisible basis of everything and life started with sound. Through sound we create our reality. Your own voice has thus an enormous impact on your energy, body and life experience. Our body consists of 85% of water which carries sound deep into our cells. Next to that, our ears are connected via the nerves to all our organs, hence sound reaches every part of our body. Sound is energy, and energy directed with intention and attention has big impact on our wellbeing.
Join us on a journey of self - discovery using the world of movement, voice, nature reflections, intuitive music and sound in the most magnificent desert environment of Jordan together with a group of people who want to inspire and support each other!

DAY 2 DAY Program
You have probably noticed that music can change the state of your consciousness and mood. So imagine how impactful the sound of your own voice can be! And this is not necessarily about singing beautifully. It is about sounding exactly as you feel it in this very moment, possibly voicing sound from different parts of your body, such as your heart, belly and your back or voicing sound from images, such as a flower or the desert. This voicing is not always sweet, it is about being real! Sometimes there are energy blocks that hold to much energy stuck in your body. This energy needs to be vomited out in order to restore healthy energy flow. You will feel lighter, relieved, clearer and on a higher energy level than before.

“An experience that can't be expressed in words. As it goes way deeper then our existing language is able to grasp. A beautiful journey lovingly guided by Dymphi in which we where invited to dive into our vulnerable core in order to re-discover our most powerful and valuable true self. Dymphi feels like an Earth mother; grounded, present, trusted and connected to source and her heart”
