SOURCE RESONANCE is a next-level training and journey through the healing power of sound and the sacred power of music, converging ancient wisdom and ground-breaking science in a universal paradigm of vibrational medicine. It is this convergence of science & spirituality that illuminates universal aspects of our humanity and reality, opening up new possibilities of existence and evolution. 

In this training intensive, we shall be initiated into this new paradigm of an energetic, vibrational and multi-dimensional reality and learn why sound healing is one of the most significant emergent medical fields. Our journey will reconnect and root us to the ancients and their 'sonic mysticism' and sacred musical arts in a diversity of global cultural expressions. We shall learn basic and advanced skills of sacred sounding with the voice to foster an individual healing practice, as well as learn how to conduct Soundbaths and Sound Journeys for groups and therapeutic environments. We will delve into the exciting potentials of one-on-one Sound Therapy with Tuning Fork modalities that merge Chinese Medicine & Yogic technique to heal the body on a fundamental, energetic level. We will also explore mantra work and the Yoga of Sound from the ancient Vedic culture of India. And we shall embark on the recovery of the sacredness of music as a force to uplift, transform and connect the world and foster community. 

Darren’s Source Resonance course was [...] seriously one of the best things I did for myself this year.
— Mary Ann Sato, Reiki Master & Sound Healer

a taste of what this magical space offers:

"Our main lodge is the result of nearly 20 years of careful planning, design and construction. Down to the detail, this spacious and open-air palace is the epitome of jungle luxury and will provides plenty of space to relax in your down time. In and around the lodge is where the dining room, kitchen, lounge area, yoga platforms, massage rooms, gift shop, and tea infusions bar are all located. A few steps from our dining area is a beautiful poolside oasis, complete with jacuzzi and a custom designed herbal steam bath and botanical shower. If you’re craving something a little more wild, a 30 second walk will bring you to the banks of the Naranjo river, which is safe for swimming and one of the cleanest fresh water rivers in the world."

"Dear Darren
Your bowls are singing and you are bringing
The voice of the divine to life
To everybody/every mind
To the Soul
From a bowl to the Soul
Carriers of sacred sounds speaking with the voice of an angel
Yes, you fly
And with that i remember to use my wings of the spirit descending 
It is me, oh God
I recognise
To your bringing and singing of bowls
For taking me in and understand the deepest of myself
sacred, native
Yes, I do"
- Wim Hof/the Iceman

As a person who previously took this course I highly recommend it to everyone who is interested in Sound Healing. Darren leads you on the magical journey of discovery the healing power of the Sound. Many modalities, many techniques, a lot of self-exploration. Everyone will find something special, that resonates with him. I am very grateful for that amazing opportunity, for Darren being such a knowledgeable, sharing and passionate Teacher, for lovely Sound Family that I have now. Don’ t believe me, just check for yourself! Much love!
