Summary

…We invite you to meet our intimate, wild and free selves through voice, movement & silence.

Vocal Odyssey is a deep yet playful self-inquiry journey of discovery into the mystery and healing forces of our most intimate musical instrument – our voice.

The 5-day long retreat aims to pierce through the voices in our heads and to open a door for a new relationship between us and the transformative quality of our vocal expression.

To bring us a bit closer to our beautiful, raw, wild and imperfect human flow.

We will reconnect to the simple and natural way of expressing our authentic voice beyond judgments, painful beliefs and limiting conditioning.

Transform how you interact with the world, both internally and externally, in daily meditations to help to overcome feelings of fear, self-consciousness and resistance.

“THE VOCAL ODYSSEY IS NOT ABOUT MAKING ANYONE A BETTER ‘SINGER’. RATHER, IT IS ABOUT SELF EXPLORATION AND SELF LOVE THROUGH A MEETING WITH THE SPIRIT OF OUR VOCAL EXPRESSION. IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR VOICE, ON THE CONTRARY, IT IS ABOUT WHAT YOUR VOICE CAN DO FOR YOU” – NESSI GOMES

Teachers

Nessi Gomes
Born on the tiny island of Guernsey (UK), singing and music became Nessi’s way of dealing with challenging life circumstances. From a young age, she discovered the ability to transform discomforts and unspoken emotions by exploring sound and has continued to root herself more and more in the therapeutic value of the sonic expression.

Nessi’s creative turning point took place seven years ago upon settling in the community of PachaMama in Costa Rica. The nature of the place has reshaped and deepened her approach towards music, therapy and self-healing.

In the past 4 years, Nessi has shared her music and voice retreats in 25 countries. In October 2016 she released her debut album ‘Diamonds & Demons’ and received Best of British Unsigned female artist for that year.

Nessi Gomes is a musician, and group facilitator with a BA (Hons) in Creative Expressive Therapies in Music (2007), and a certified Holistic Voice Therapist with The British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST) in Group Voice Therapy (2014).

Lino Hermesh
Born and raised in Israel, Lino’s life’s circumstances took him on a long and winding spiritual path, seeking meaning to his life and healing to his own restless heart. After some period spent in India, he had put down roots in the community of PachaMama in Costa Rica where he lived for 12 years. Years of growth, pain, exploration, confusion and bliss. Of inner work, crystallisation, therapy, meditation and celebration.

In the forests of Central America, he met his life partner Nessi Gomes. A meeting that changed their life and took them both on a musical voyage of creativity and self-growth through some 30 countries in which they shared their work in the past 6 years.

Today they are holding a young baby daughter, travelling the world and sharing the voice work. Lino is the co-founder of Vocal Odyssey. A Certified Voice Practitioner (The British Academy of Sound Therapy, UK) and holds a Diploma in Relational Mindfulness/Core Process Psychotherapy (Karuna Institute, UK).
