sound journey 2018.jpg

Registration is now open on the Red Lotus website for the Sound Journey with Barbara and I on Friday Sept 21! We've filled to capacity in past years and this year we have added some extra time for an especially rejuvenating, inspiring and self-nurturing experience. Join us to experience Barbara Korte's special brand of self-empowerment through a meditative journey supported by the harmonious musical ambiance of our voices along with crystal bowls, drums and harp. 

We will open the evening with a short talk on self-empowerment, heart-centered living and how transcending the stories that are keeping us stuck transforms us...and that transforms the world. You will leave feeling renewed, rejuvenated and connected to your most important source of support and inspiration...your own Heart.


For those of you interested in a personal session with Barbara during her short visit Sept 22-28, she has a few opening left.

She is doing sessions in Rochester Hills, MI. You will receive the address with your confirmation email.

More About the Event

Sound brings deep relaxation and assists in bringing us to deeper meditative states. In this workshop you will experience the healing and rejuvenating effects of sound through vocal toning, crystal bowls and the rhythmic drumming used in traditional ceremonies to facilitate deeper states of consciousness due to it's effects on brainwave states.


Barbara and Erin will guide you through a relaxing and clearing meditative journey, establishing a deeper connection to the heart. As we let go of old stories and beliefs that have caused disharmony, we transcend our old way of being and align with our true state, which is Love.

There is no yoga asana for this event. We are starting with a short talk. Then we will guide you through a meditative journey (more like a yoga nidra or a shamanic journey). You will be lying down on a yoga mat with whatever props or blankets you need to be comfortable during the sound journey. We are using vocal toning, crystal bowls (not tibetan bowls - they have a much different sound quality) and rhythmic (like shamanic journey) drumming. Barbara typically guides a meditative journey connecting with your higher self or aspects of your Soul.
