Surrender into the luxury of Cara Creek –
Lounge by the natural infinity pool; star gaze from the hot tub; break a sweat in the sauna; sing around the fire pit; rub on locally sourced clay to detoxify your skin before rinsing in the river; read a book on the private beach; explore the Mondego river by stand up paddle board; try the rock jump or a leisurely swim in the creek; practice yoga in the cozy indoor shala or on the panoramic outdoor shala; hike to the nearby waterfall; visit the neolithic dolmen site; treat yourself to a holistic therapy of your choice...

MEET LYNDZ LIQUID-LIGHT
Singing is how I pray. It's how I celebrate this earth walk,how I celebrate my love to her, our planet and all who inhabit her and even beyond put into the galaxies....Exploring the voice has become a great passion and witnessing the healing this brings is beyond words , to witness the vulnerability, the tenderness, the power, the wild versatility, the nakedness, the unpredictability! The path of reconnection , coming back to our simple truths... This is what working with these vocal chakras does for me , listening to someone's voice, is listening to their soul, What an honour.
After studying at Nada Yoga school in India over 10 years ago , a whole world of sound opened up to me and got me passionate to walk this path as a song carrier, falling in love with the world of medicine music as I go! I have weaved many different paths of vocal and sound exploration from bhakti to womb healing, shamanism to cymatics including studying in a mystery school , Sounds of Light ...the depth of healing that working with voice continues to bring myself and all those I work with blows me away!
These days you'll mostly find me walking the coastline of southern Cornwall, deeply inspired by the way the ocean moves and bringing this into the way I share voice work and singing...it's a wild form of singing because it brings people into their bodies, their truth, their hearts and connect in from that place . Such a balm in these tender times.
