John Minks

John Minks is a gifted musician with over 15 years of exploring and studying the healing power of sound.  John’s first experience with sound healing was in Amsterdam in 2006.  Since then, his tone quest has taken him from the Brazilian Rainforest to the islands of Hawai’i and beyond.  He began his study of the Didgeridoo while in the jungles of Brazil in 2007.  His sessions are part sound bath, part molecular massage. He continues to explore how vibration and sound can restructure and re-align the cells and atoms of the physical body.  John has also studied guitar for the past 10 years and has extensive experience in its healing power with plant medicines.  In addition to the Didgeridoo and the guitar, John also uses the Gongs, Djembe, Singing Bowls, Flute, Shruti box, Accordion, Khomus, and Tuning forks in his sound sessions.

Deep Space Soundscape: a Yoga and Sound Retreat
February 10 - 12, 2023

“A person does not hear sound only through the ears; he hears sound through every pore of the body. It permeates the entire being, and according to its particular influence, either slows or quickens the rhythm of the blood circulation; it either awakens or soothes the nervous system” ― Hazrat Inayat Khan Are you ready to go Deep?  We invite you to a celebratory and immersive exploration of sound, yoga, and meditation.  Join us for three days of rejuvenation, expansion, bliss, and practice including yogic sound meditations, vinyasa, and restorative yoga, and Deep Space sound baths.  Sound is coupled with yoga…
