2023 Vibrational Sound Therapy Retreat

"Raising Vibrations in Roca" 

August 28-31, 2023

Roca, Nebraska USA


For our 2023 Retreat we decided to switch it up and move to Roca Berry Farm, located just 5 miles or 10 minutes from the Silver Sky Imports warehouse! Roca Berry Farm is owned by the growing Schaefer family who have been harvesting memories since 1980. What started as a small pumpkin and berry farm has grown to a local tourist attraction and must-see entertainment destination for families throughout southeast Nebraska. This retreat will also include optional shopping at the Silver Sky Imports warehouse with nearly 10,000 singing bowls and instruments.

  Presentation Title:  Immersive Relaxation: A Journey into the World of Sound Baths

 Jamie Bechtold stands as a trailblazer in the realm of sound baths, having embarked on her professional journey in 2004. As co-founder and proprietor of The Soundbath Center in Los Angeles, California, she pioneered the concept of a dedicated space for sound baths when she established The Sound Space in 2015.

With nearly two decades of experience, Jamie has honed her sound bath techniques by facilitating countless group sessions. She is recognized as an early adopter of incorporating gongs and crystal singing bowls, playing them simultaneously within the sound bath format, resulting in a distinctive, therapeutic sound bath style.

Jamie's expertise in blending multiple gongs and crystal singing bowls has garnered consistent, positive participant responses. Since 2005, she has performed sound baths throughout Los Angeles, playing a significant role in the increasing popularity of this immersive experience.
