Inner Resonance Explorations
Shifting Dissonance Into Resonance

Next one: April 24th at 11am PDT, via Zoom ~ Time Zone Converter


Cultivating healing presence for yourself and for others.

Inner Resonance Explorations are immersive and transformative experiences through guided MetaMusic journeys, body awareness, energetic practices, and intentional visualization. They offer a possibility to resonate with what is present for you, and provide a tool to harmonize your system and connect to a larger vital force. I invite you to become an inner voyager and let music guide you and show you what you need to see, feel, hear, sense, release, embrace, share...

By holding an intention we are making a silent action.

We will first take a guided sound journey, as an opportunity to harmonize our system and tune into our own personal resonance. We will create a sacred space where we can explore what is present for each one of us. We will use the 5 Elements as a guidance into listening (earth), connecting (water), transforming (fire), harmonizing (air), and integrating (space). Then, as we will be connected as 'one collective body', we will send benevolent Light to those who are victims of unnecessary suffering and to our Mother Nature. The ancient practice of holding an intention is a powerful tool to make silent and yet impactful actions. From that space we will integrate the experience and hear your voices of wisdom. 

We live in symbiosis with each other and the natural.

No matter where in the world your feet are touching the ground, we are all interconnected and living in symbiosis on this amazing and fragile Spaceship Earth, as Buckminster Fuller rightfully called our planet... We truly need to manifest a better 'manual' to protect our species and the rest of the living.

More than ever, I feel it is time to be united together and be with each other. I will create as many gatherings as I can to help harmonize our body, mind, and heart.  I hope to see you among us supporting each other and our planet as an harmonized Earth community.

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others." ~ Martha Graham

Inner Resonance Explorations at Esalen Institute ~ Big Sur, California

Step out of dissonant environments and step into the harmonic resonance of your body and mind.

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.

No music knowledge is needed, just an openness to connect with your vibrational nature and the joy of sound.

During this weekend together we 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.

"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

"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."
