Sound and Consciousness

Riverledge Farm in Grafton, VT

Friday – Sunday, July 19-21, 2024

(*arrival Thursday evening, July 18)


Sound is an elemental force of creation. 
Consciousness is how life is formed, experienced, and expressed within our own reality. These two forces intertwine and manifest through all aspects of our lives. With an understanding of the laws of sound, science and Nature, one can enter harmony and balance within one’s own life, but also with these fundamental elements of All Life.

Zacciah and Dorothy shall eloquently speak to these laws and forces of nature, including the evolutionary journey of humankind, the precipice of transformation we find ourselves upon, and the renewal of awareness and Awakening of the Greater Self . This brings us a unique experience of those universal forces. Together they will guide this journey through unique experiential practices, utilizing masterful techniques of sound, in living relationship with elemental consciousness of the subtle worlds.

The wisdom shall express the nature of these relationships, the nature of the Great Awakening of these times we are living within, and the path of personal evolution and realization through the unfolding, nourishing, and growth of one’s own ‘Seed of Potential,’ which resides within each of us.


This program is open to all participants, though it has limited enrollment.

It includes options for complete immersion in sound, nature, and consciousness practices, amidst elegant environs and cuisine, in a beautiful retreat center, in rural Vermont, on 300 acres of pristine nature.

Our Chef

Eddie Ritz III (Ho'Omau)

Born and raised in Kailua, Hawaii, Eddie grew up on the windward side of the island enjoying surfing and exploring the local hiking trails with his family, as well as, the exceptional diverse culture and food offerings of the islands. Son of Edward Ritz II a military veteran stationed at Pearl Harbor at the time, where he met his future wife Sandra Havallana a local native Hawaiian. 
A seasoned Baker by trade Eddie then attended and graduated Le Cordon Bleu Culinary arts school. Upon graduation he accepted and completed a formal year long Apprenticeship under French Master Chef, Christohe Ehrarht. After completing his apprenticeship they soon opened Bistro La Petite France, a well received traditional French Bistro in Sacramento, CA. 
With a desire to travel see the world, experience the many different cultural offerings, he received an amazing opportunity to further his experience and hone in his skills in a galley onboard the National Geographic Sea Bird / Sea Lion with ports of call in Alaska, Mexico and open waters off the coast of Africa to name a few.
Eddie continued his post graduate culinary arts education and training through the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) at Greystone in Napa Valley, where he earned top of the class honors in French and Japanese cuisine. After five amazing years he left National Geographic / Lindblad Expeditions to pursue an Executive Chef role leading, teaching, kitchen brigades for various large scale food and beverage operation companies.
 His most recent travels took him to Norwich, Vermont where he accepted the Head Chef position for King Arthur Flour.  Eddie has since retired from professional cooking and now enjoys his time with Sunreed Instruments, learning the sacred honored traditions of global sound healing.
