Somatic Sound Journeys are a unique combination of creative and somatic tools with immersive sound that helps us train the resilience of the central nervous system and stimulate the plasticity of the brain by helping us deal with emotions, body, thoughts and memories at the same time, and not with one of them as a means to influence the others.

It has been proved to facilitate physical relaxation and mental clarity, relieve stress and pain, understand aspects of oneself, deepen the sense of presence and awareness, better emotional expression, etc.

The immersive sonic landscapes used in the workshop involve a variety of nature sounds and acoustic music (listen to an example) recorded three-dimensionally that can be felt physically, opening up a space to train somatic awareness.

The experience is accompanied by a blindfold mask that enables total darkness even with open eyes. A holographic speaker system is also used, balancing our hearing and thus bringing a sense of deep centredness. The intention behind it is to support each participant in accessing and surrendering to their bodily sensations and inner movie.

“This seeking of inner transformation, rooted in the vibrations of sound and corporeal awareness, raises the level of self-awareness — of being in the body.” — Lawrence Sacharow

Somatic Sound Journeys were created by Catarina Brazão and Markus Pesonen as a part of Acoustic Body® approach that brings together somatic education, eco-psychology and the power of sound to help people reconnect with their nature within and around.



"THANK YOU! for this wonderful Sound Journey. This experience really touched me deeply. Thank you very much for this again. I wish that you reach many people and touch them with this work." — Gabi

"I was very positively surprised by the experience and everything that I felt after the experience. The sound journey had produced a sensation of total bliss and calm in my body and I felt that no external situation could change that. Also, I felt very awake, very instinctive, just listening to myself. I am very appreciative of having been part of this experience of body awareness. I would love to cross paths with you two once again and experience another sound journey." — Martina

“I would describe my experience as meditative as I went pretty deep during the journey. The sound was really impressive – an amazing natural soundscape.”  — Jyrki
