Embody Your Voice – 7-Day Deep-Dive Retreat
Find & Free Your True Self
7-Day Equinox Retreat
Sound Healing, Self-Expression, & Yoga
Did you know that your voice is a reflection of every emotion or experience you have ever felt? The cells of your body hide and hold on to the reflections and remnants of your past. Exploring your spiritual, energetic, connections alongside the physical vibration of your voice we shake up those cell memories and reconnect you to your higher self’s soul expression, so that you can recognise and release what has been holding you back in life.
Whether you are already aware of the power of sounding, sound healing and sonic meditation, or if you have never experienced the power of sounding before, this seven days will resonate with you if you want to:
- Get right away from your day-to-day life and have some ‘you’ time
- Raise your vibration with a deeper understanding of who you are, physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually so that you can…
- Recognise what gets in the way of fully expressing yourself
- Make choices about what you want to do next in life, free from the opinions of others
- Find new ways to ask for what you want, or speak in front of others with more confidence, courage and clarity.
- Release the heaviness of past experiences, or emotional baggage, so that you feel lighter and life feels easier
- Understand the connection between your brain, body, & voice and how it impacts yourself and others
If you are fed up with “putting up” with situations in life – but haven’t found the words or confidence to change anything about them; If you know that you are ‘done’ with feeling stuck, or restricted, in your personal or professional life – but don’t know what to do about it; If you are ready to change the way you see yourself – so it doesn’t matter so much how other people see you; and if you want to start to make those changes NOW – then this is the retreat for you.

When you leave the retreat you will have a deeper acceptance of, and connection to, who you really are (as opposed to who you used to be, or have been trying to be) and a stronger awareness of your spiritual or ‘higher’ self’s essence and purpose. You will release some of your subconscious blocks that hold you back in life, and have a raised awareness of where you restrict yourself and tools to manage that. You will free some of the shackles of your past, feel lighter about life, and be more able to express yourself with more confidence.
You will be supported through the retreat by myself and our fabulous yoga teacher Aideen. If you don’t know me:
I’m Judith Quin, international speaker, bestselling author, award-winning coach, vocal confidence and communication specialist and voice-vibration sound healer. My work has been featured in various media including The Daily Telegraph, UK Health Radio, and Stylist Magazine. I work both in companies and with individuals and the through-line of my work is empowerment through self-expression and re-connection to your true voice, passion, and purpose. On this retreat I facilitate the sessions and hold the space energetically, so that you are free to explore knowing that you are held safe and secure. (This photo is taken on this retreat!)
Aideen Schweppe is your co-facilitator – your voice and spirit are not separate from your body, so it’s important to have a physical element on the retreat. Aideen has over 12 years of yoga teaching experience, is also a Manual Lymph Drainage therapist and has has completed higher qualifications in Anatomy and Physiology. (This picture is also taken in Ireland!)
The core element of the retreat is to acknowledge the rubbish that you are still holding on to (often subconsciously) and finding ways to let it go.
Each day you will explore your relationship to yourself and others through how you accept and relate to your voice and body. Results experienced by those who have been before include:
- Increased levels of self-worth and self-confidence to live the life you want to – not what other people expect of you.
- Improved personal and professional relationships
- Having courageous conversations in the workplace to improve working conditions, or leaving one workplace for a new & better one
- Healing conversations around sexual relationships with partners and improving that part of life (and the whole relationship)
- Stopping apologising for everything
- Being able to ask for what you want or need – without guilt
- Changing how you stand so that you are seen
- Being more confident talking about who you are and/or what you do
- New clients!
Leave the past behind as you leave the retreat feeling able to move forward, step in to who you really are today, with more confidence of being able to be who you want to be in the future.

This retreat is seven days spent in the wild beauty of Ireland’s south coast, at the Wild Atlantic Way Yoga Centre, close to Kinsale, just a 35minute drive from Cork International Airport.
What Techniques Do We Use?
Focusing on one chakra (energy centre) each day you will be working with:
Voice-Vibration Sound Healing Explore and expand your voice. Feel the physical vibration of your voice, where it lives in your body, where it’s stuck, where it feels good and where it’s challenged. Find and free your true voice so that, moving forward, you can express yourself with confidence, clarity, and conviction – no matter the situation; connected to your deepest truth and higher purpose.
Journaling The freedom of writing everything that you feel without judgment, and the power of being able to see and read back your own transitions, experiences, awareness’s and moments of clarity, insight and sparks of bright ideas. Journaling is an integral part of both the retreat and of finding your voice – you might write what you would never actually say.
Subconscious Drawing Sometimes we don’t know how to say it with words, so being able to choose colours and scribble what’s inside is a great way of starting to acknowledge what is residing where we can’t see it.
Sharing Within the group, as you share what you experienced in the sounding, your realisations and ‘Ah-Ha’ moments help others in the group find, or absorb their own. You only share what you are comfortable with, the rest is in your journal, for your eyes only.
Yoga Sessions Physically connect to, open up, and create space in each chakra so that you can release the physical holdings you discover and in creating greater connection to your body, so have the ability to use more of your voice.
Crystal Energy You will be gifted with a crystal to work with for each chakra, a tool to support your transitions, or through which to transfer the energy you no longer want to hold on to.
There will also be time for private sessions
Vocal Confidence Coaching If there is something specific you would like to be able to express, that you currently leave unsaid – or situations in which you would like to be more confident expressing yourself, there are sessions in which you can explore nerve management and finding new ways to share what you have to say.
Holistic Therapy You may book an extra session of Sound Healing (sound, reiki & positive touch) or Vocal Confidence or Life-Coaching with Judith, or a private Yoga, MLD, or Massage session with Aideen (these are not included in the package)

The morning sounding sessions are where the core of the work will happen. This is the space where you recognise and release the holdings that you carry in that area. When this ends there is silent reflection and journaling of what arose for you, followed by the opportunity to share your observations with the group. This is an intensive experience which may release challenges you’ve been holding or hiding for a while, so please be aware it may get emotional.
All meals are included (bar one evening out). Food is vegetarian, handmade and home-cooked by our host, Shirley – if you have other dietary requirements just let us know. There is collaborative preparation & clearing away (ie laying the table & loading the dishwasher!) This is a no alcohol retreat and there is no wi-fi for attendees and limited phone signal (depending on your network.) It is the Irish coast, so don’t expect the best 4G!
This is a true break away to come back to yourself. However, if you need meat, drink & wi-fi, there is an afternoon and night out – and a pub a good walk down the road… . (please see housekeeping notes)
“Judith’s retreat is an extraordinary way to connect to parts of yourself that you didn’t know want healing and deserve expression. Using the vibration of voice in the body is a powerful way to access your own vitality. It was fun to learn, enlightening and I have a new secret weapon to use to ground and connect to myself.” (Helena Holrick)
