Sound Journey

Doug Powell

  • Facebook

Doug and Maya Powell are the owners and operators of Eden’s Light Sanctuary. They offer retreats focused on service in loving humanity, singing devotional songs, and sound journeys. They set the intention to create a space “out of time” where attendees can relax and float in the sound vibration. Our universe and everything in it is made up from vibration. Edgar Cayce said that sound and vibration would be our medicine of the future. Everyone experiences the sound differently. Many people report back a physical or emotional healing; while others describe the journey as slightly hypnotic and traveling to some familiar place within themselves. Doug and Maya converted a Mercedes Sprinter Van into an RV for their COVID project and now travel with over 30 instruments, including gongs, drums, rattles, flutes, chimes, and many unusual pieces. Come join us for a unique experience!
