“Words seem so deficient for explaining the depth of experience we all felt… I was being moved by sound, my whole body was light and vibrating.” – Vancouver Yoga Review
Imagine floating in an ocean of sacred sound… vibration so profound it seems to take on qualities of form, texture and color.
It’s hard to believe these tones come from a human.
His surreal voice finds Heaven and Earth in the core of your being, reawakening collective memories of our primal roots and celestial origins.
Known as the “Cosmic Throat Singer”, Matthew Kocel creates a sonic environment that seems to bend the very fabric of space and time. The effect is often compared to plant medicines. The pure devotion expressed through his voice is felt beyond words.
This is your opportunity to experience pure bliss in an intimate setting with internationally acclaimed throat singer/sound healer Matthew Kocel, and sacred plant medicines.
In a rapidly changing world, this timeless music connects us to our most primal roots and celestial origins.
A surreal voice and hauntingly familiar melodies resonate to the core of your being, beyond time and space.
“Matthew is a musical magician, an auditory alchemist, you will be changed.” – Wendy Chivers
Based in Vancouver BC, Matthew Kocel is recognized as an emerging leader in the world sound healing movement. He is a committee member of the Global Wellness Institute Sound Healing Initiative, and just returned from a tour of the east coast, France, Belgium and Colorado.
If you wish to partake using cannabis as an enhancer to your journey here are some recommended guidelines.
**At no point is it required or necessary to imbibe to participate, as the sound journey itself is fully transcendental**
Instructions and Guidelines: *Please read thoroughly
1. If at all possible, take a break from cannabis for a minimum of 3 days. This will allow the
receptors to reset. The experience during the ceremony will then be
clearer and stronger. While some may find this a “woo woo” notion, there are
indications that the veil between matter and spirit is unusually thin right now as most of
us are shaken out of our habitual patterns. A time of great potential for deepening and
2. Good quality sound: We’re working to improve the quality of our transmission. As
sound is a key component of this event, please use the best speakers or earphones you
can get your hands on.
3. Since we’re not able to provide you with carefully field-tested medicine as per usual in
our ceremonies, we suggest that you find an uplifting, expansive cultivar (strain),
probably leaning somewhat to the Sativa side of life. If you don’t have any organically
and lovingly grown flower right now, your local shop may be able to guide you and
provide take-out or delivery service.
4. In general (see #7 below) and especially if you haven’t tried the specific medicine you
intend to use in the ceremony, test it out for potency well beforehand. The optimal
dose is the dose you both want to and can handle. Handle meaning the dosage with which you can stay present, open, and able to let go of thinking for at least part of the time. Then it’s as deep as you’re up for.
5. Prepare your space ahead of the start of the ceremony. Make sure it’s a comfortable
space where you won’t be disturbed for 2 hours. Have ready a meditation cushion or
bench, or a straight-backed chair. A straight spine is key to opening the body channels.
It’s good to sit up as much as possible, but you may also want to have a comfortable pad
or mattress to stretch out on for part of the time.
6. Have your flower* with you and ready to light when we open the ceremony.
*If you prefer to imbibe orally, we suggest you do that one hour before the ceremony
begins. It can take up to an hour and a half to reach peak effects, even longer if taken
shortly after a meal.
7. Special Note: We’re hearing that some people are feeling so sensitized and perhaps
fragile during this intense time that what would normally be a manageable dose of
cannabis can feel more like an overdose. This is why it’s so important to test your
medicine ahead of time if you haven’t used that specific medicine before and/or if you
haven’t been partaking lately, and/or you’re feeling extra sensitive right now.
