Heart of the Matter Workshop

  • Allanton World Peace Sanctuary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

An Invitation to the Co-Creation of Forging Sound
Bowl Making Workshop - a residential and non-residential retreat.

We will be in residence at The World Peace Sanctuary once again this year.
The energetic field of this beautiful residence and centre for world peace is beautifully supportive and conducive to the crafting of an instrument. Everything here offers the frequency of what it takes to create peace in the world.  It is a high and sustaining vibration that emanates out from the incredible Peace Henge crafted from the hand made Peace Poles that represent every country on Earth. 

What is the sound of Peace? What might that create?
What can the creation of a singing bowl contribute to the existence of Peace on Earth?

What could we co-create with you in a field where Peace has been planted as a possibility for the future?

See our recent blog posted with a Sound Weaving for the recent 11/11 century  of the ending of World War 1.

The Heart and Soul of Sound Alchemy

The Heart and Soul of Sound Alchemy.

A Homecoming Retreat and Workshop to Forge your own Singing Bowl or Bell.

You are being called Home...
Come home to yourself. Craft a Sound. Sound the Call.
Let the Earth know you are here!

If you have ever wondered what it is to be in the mystery and awe of creation you may find it here - a generous and peaceful space for co-creating sound. Through the alchemy of creating your own singing bowl in connection with the ancients and the elementals of this peaceful haven in County Donegal you will experience transformation at many levels. Through this work of metal and sound smithing we draw upon the Elements of Craft, the Elementals of Nature and our place as co-creators within the circle of life on Earth. 

Whether you are a native to Ireland or not, this land, this place, like few others, has allowed us and the participants in our workshops to truly arrive at a new land in their own lives... a place we have come to call Home. 

A three or four day residential or non-residential retreat.

This workshop also offers an additional day of Sound Weaving and Co-Creation which is also open to those who have crafted bowls or bells with us in previous years.
