About the event

Join Coda Badamo for a plant medicine ID walk at the Inner Wolf Retreat Space.  Please bring good walking shoes, sun protection, and consider long pants for protection from insects / brambles.  We will make a nourishing tea from plants gathered on the walk, to enjoy before the sound healing. Walking slowly on the land is grounding as well as piquing your interest in medicinal plants. Then we will relax on the second floor of the space (participants will need to be able to climb one flight of stairs), laying down on foam cushions for the sound healing.  Dawn and David play gongs and other instruments to help the mind relax and the parasympathetic nervous system to activate, to allow your body to rest, restore and heal. 

All of existence vibrates. Come vibrate with us!

Join us for a special evening of time in nature and vibrational sound healing as Coda Badamo teaches about plant medicine and sound healing practitioners David Heiss and Dawn Sagonias play the gongs, the harmonium, and other instruments. In  this 3 hour transformational event, you will be invited to reset and  ground through the vibrational frequencies of nature and sound healing.

What to Expect

We’ll start with Coda Badamo leading us around the property exploring local medicinal plants. This will be time walking slowly and investigatively on the  grounds of Inner Wolf Retreat Space, which is overall flat.  We will make a nourishing tea from plants we collect to experience.  Then we ascend to the second floor of the beautiful renovated barn to lay down and relax  into a meditative state with the sounds of the gongs. You will be  invited to surrender to the sounds and the vibrations, allowing them to  permeate every cell of your being. Take this as an opportunity to give your mind a respite, heal at a deep level, and discover new aspects of  yourself.

What to Bring

For the plant walk, please bring good walking shoes, sun protection, and consider long pants for protection from insects / brambles.  For the sound healing, we suggest you bring cushions or pillows to support your head and under your knees, a blanket, and water bottle as well as anything else that you feel will enhance your journey.


The plant medicine ID walk and sound healing session will take place at Inner Wolf  Retreat Space in Wolf Laurel a picturesque and serene location just  outside of Asheville, NC.

More About Sound Healing

When  the gong sings, your body, mind, and soul listen and feel with every  cell of your being. Sound Healing helps us feel more at ease with our  lives, find relief from anxiety, and train the brain to allow us to  relax and just Be.  Participants experience emotional relief, calm, and  the gift of resetting and recentering to have more clarity about life.

The  mysterious and powerful sounds are both deeply stimulating and healing,  creating a unique experience for each person.  Sound Healing relaxes  the mind so the body can activate the parasympathetic nervous system to  rest, digest, and heal.  Every sound healing session is unique and  profoundly personal, meeting you where you are in your own spiritual and  healing journey. As such, it is best approached with an open mind and  receptive state. Thoughts and feelings may surface, you may perceive  colors and visions, the subconscious can become conscious, the  mysterious can become illuminated, insights can arise.

The  harmonium, another instrument of the workshop, is an aid for the voice  and leads us in opening our hearts and voices to greater connection with  ourselves and with higher spirit. The sound of your own voice is the  most powerful sound healing instrument there is. Dawn will share some  lullaby-like, heart-opening chants to pair with the harmonium as part of  our evening together in expanding joy.

Please be aware that sound healing with the gong is quite powerful. Always operate within your own sense of tolerance. We are not medical  professionals. Our gong sessions and recommendations are not a  substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, nor is the  information presented here intended to replace consultation with a  qualified physician or other healthcare providers. This being said, many  people fall asleep with the sound of the gong. The gong provides the  sound of consistent stability that allows the mind and body to find  peace.
