Inner Resonance Explorations: immersive experiences into sound and movement
Step out of noisy and dissonant environments, and step into the harmonic resonance of your body, mind, and spirit. This will be a weekend of immersive sound journeys, playful creativity, body awareness, energetic explorations, wisdom traditions, and deep flow, while benefiting from Esalen’s rejuvenating beauty.
Inner Resonance Explorations is the development of Laura Inserra’s work around the transformative power of sound and body awareness. It is a musical immersion into enchanted soundscapes and an invitation to listen with your whole body to your visions, moods, feelings, thoughts, and states.
During this weekend together, you will
experience immersive sound journeys with a multitude of ancient and modern acoustic instruments.
move and drum to feel, express, and integrate emotions and in-sights.
learn techniques to connect and release emotional, mental, and physical stagnation.
dance, wander, and play alone, together, and with all the elements around.
harmonize body and mind, while learning new pathways to access your innate wisdom.
No music knowledge is needed, just an openness to connect with your vibrational nature and the joy of sound.
Laura Inserra is a multi-instrumentalist, sound therapist, and teacher from Sicily. After 30+ years of studies and practice of music and different wisdom lineages, she developed Resonant Healing Therapy: using sound as a tool for personal transformation, healing, and self-awareness.

"The work on meditation, music, and transformation was excellent. The leaders resonated very well with the group. It was informative, rejuvenating, and one of the best yet. Esalen continues to grow and change. This hopefully can keep us current. I have been coming since about 1977 and need meditation and joy (the drumming and dancing was like the old days at Esalen.) This positive feedback is from both for my husband and I. We were definitely the oldest in the group and were honored for that." - from Music, Meditation, and Transformation workshop in collaboration with Darin McFadyen. Esalen Institute, March 2019
"Laura Inserra is a rare example of power, mastery, and grace in the human form. Her work is unlike anything I have experienced before in my career or life. Through transformational sound and vibration she enables individuals and groups to transcend the rational mind and access deeper layers of knowing. She invites participants into an experience that unleashes creativity, emotion, connection and possibility. Part musician, shaman, intuitive, and teacher, Laura will take you on a journey between worlds that you will never forget. Run swiftly towards this work if you are looking for deeper meaning and new answers to old questions. Laura is an extraordinary treasure that is a privilege to invite into your life or organization."- Catherine Gray, The Trium Group
"Laura is able to use live music and sound to create a field of connection among a group that opens them up to go deeper with one another and with the subject at hand. It's a tremendous thing to experience and witness! I'm so grateful she was able to work with us at a recent retreat. Her work is part performance, part facilitation, and part healer. What impressed me the most is not only is Laura a supremely talented musician-- playing so many unique instruments and all with great skill - she's also an insightful and empathetic facilitator who made an effort to understand our overall program and then suggest the best way her offering could augment and help serve the overall mission of the gathering. She added a layer of depth and clarity of facilitation that was appreciated and she really knows how to read a room. It was a joy to work with her!" - Jess Rimington, The Rules
