The Sonic Portal
ALL WEEKEND – SOUTH OF THE SOULSHINE TENT
Liberation is the nervous system devoid of mental conceptual activity… Imagine a place, inside yourself, clutter-free without the troubles of everyday distraction. Enter The Sonic Portal to explore a place free from words, thought formation or physical plane limitations.
Is to unlock what lies inside of you and shake it free via vibrational waves with a voyage to inner & outer space and everywhere in-between. From the depths of your imagination to the edge of your awareness our goal is to provide a non verbal lesson in the moment while giving you an experience you never dreamed possible.
What is the Sonic Portal? Performing around you in 360 degrees our Sonic Sculptors utilize a precisely tuned collection of nickel-silver planetary gongs. The unique and fluid soundscape we create allows vibrations to permeate your body, giving you an extra-sensory experience not only heard but felt.
This level of sound immersion can rapidly disconnect you from your chaotic modern environment, allowing you to float away to another reality creating an amazing illusion of transport. “We don’t know where you are going but we know how to get you there!”

Intro to Handpan: The Music Within!
Find the music inside yourself. Through the handpan, a steel drum-like instrument, anyone can step up and create raw melodic percussion music. The handpan acts as a mirror, and can tell expressive stories from within ourselves. Join in this drum circle style workshop with these rare and unique instruments!
Ambient Handpan: Connect to the Music Within
Smell the flowers and watch the bees. Drift off into morning meditation supported by the exploration of sonic possibilities through the music of the handpan. Enjoy the spacious morning with artist Maxwell Edison.
