FREE YOUR VOICE: Embody Your Expression Guatemala Retreat is NOW open for enrollment.
Sound therapy works with all aspects of one’s being – spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical – bringing back into harmony that which is out of tune. Sound therapy facilitates shifts in brainwave state via entrainment, the synchronization of brainwaves to sound frequencies, which makes it possible to down-shift from the normal Beta state (alert consciousness) through Alpha (relaxed consciousness) and Theta (meditative state) to even reach Delta (sleep, where natural healing occurs). Reaching these states of awareness stimulates emotional and physical release of trauma (or energies of dis-ease), promoting natural healing.
A sound healing session is both a passive and participatory experience, during which you will be awash in the harmonic sounds of a variety of instruments and vibrational tools such as voice, flute, piano, steel tongue drum, crystal bowls, vocal toning, tuning forks, crystal pyramid, chimes, medicine drums, and many more. A sound healing session is like a week-long meditation retreat condensed into an hour – the result is peace of mind through the fullness of sound, which can help relieve insomnia, stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.

Voice ReWilding is the art & practice of returning your voice to its most wild & natural state, including the reintroduction of parts of your expression that have been hiding, forgotten, or lost.
Our voice is our most powerfull instrument and when we learn to use it, we can create profound liberation for our body, mind, spirit, and all aspects of our being. Often when we hold repressed expression in our body, this energy can manifest in all kinds of harmful ways, even as dis-ease. We can use the vibration of our very own voice to free up this energy so that we experience more grace, joy, creativity, and well-being in our life.
Astaria healed herself from a thyroid ‘auto-immune dis-ease’ called Hashimotos by starting to sing and make sound for the first time in her life. She spent most of her years in silence and was always known as ‘the shy girl’, terrified to speak, let alone sing.
A lifetime of repressed expression manifested in a massive throat chakra blockage. Her doctors explained that if she didn’t go on medication for the rest of her life, her system would shut down and she would die. This ‘life-threatening’ diagnosis wound up being the ‘wake-up call’ that Astaria needed to start honoring who she really is and living a path of soul alignment.
Refusing to go on medication and determined to find a natural way, Astaria intuitively started to ReWild her Voice… and 2 years later, lab results revealed the ‘miracle’ of her natural healing.
Her Shero’s Journey is an example of what’s possible when we use our voice to share our truth.
Here is a mini video of Astaria singing her voice free in the sound temple in Antigua, Guatemala
Vocal music is considered to be the highest, for it is natural; the effect produced by an instrument which is merely a machine cannot be compared with that of the human voice. However perfect strings may be, they cannot make the same impression on the listener as the voice which comes direct from the soul as breath, and has been brought to the surface through the medium of the mind and the vocal organs of the body.

Astaria Light is able to send healing waves throughout your being with her gift of sound. She is highly skilled, astute and attuned to the individual’s needs. As the sound waves aligned cellular energy in my body, I attained a greater sense of peace and grounding than I could have achieved by myself. My thoughts and knowing lined up and a deep clarity presented itself to me on subjects I had been needing answers to. I was so grateful to Astaria and in awe at the power of sound.Rachael Bruton Haisell
