Soul of the Buddha“

Mantra Holidays

Join Kevin James in an exploration of the profound transforming energy of chanting.

We will begin our day with Kevin sharing what he simply calls his “Morning practice” which involves a deep journey into the Aum & toning sacred sounds as he shares his profound insight into the nature of sound and the connections it has to every part of our lives.

You will be supported to open up to an effortless way of singing in your natural voice with emotion and feeling (the essence of Bhakti) and Kevin will explain how this has a direct connection to your true authentic self.

We will chant daily and explore some of the blissful trance states that come from certain mantras with the possibility to learn some of the more difficult mantras he doesn’t normally share in the circles. Also there will be the element of co-creation where Kevin will do his best to accommodate the desires of the group including some one on one help if needed.

“The benefits from chanting are clearly evident in just one 2 hour session. What I love about these retreats is that I get a chance to share the experience of what it’s like to be chanting every day and how this can have a profound effect on your state of being and health but even much more than that, it can change your reality, where it’s almost like we enter another dimension of harmony and grace. This is really the essence of what I intend to share at these retreats.” Kevin

Morning Practice Toning work. Toning singing through the Chakras will improve and open your voice, clear emotional blockages and give your energy centers a cleanse and charge up with the power of your own voice. Send a message of harmony to every cell of your body. Feel the deep meditation of toning the sounds of your own true nature as it aligns your being and gives you a clear aura of peace and healing…

Kevin James is an experienced Chant leader who travels continuously sharing his presence and heartfelt voice with people from many different cultures and religions throughout the world.
His intention is to unite people to the heart through the simple act of chanting together in a way that is universal and based on the principles of Bhakti Yoga, to see the “One” or the Divine in everyone and everything. A search beginning, continuing, and ending in love.

Testimonials from participants of last retreats


This week was the most intensive and best experience of my life! I will keep it like a treasure in my heart and spread out this love in the world.

I am so happy that I decided to join this retreat.


I lost my fear that I carried with me since I was a child through singing, chanting, dancing and being together with you wonderful people who created a safe space full of love and joy! I am so grateful for that. THANK YOU!

There is so much energy and power in me which was released by that deep healing and I am charged by singing. It feels like I have found my place in my life, standing with my feet on my position, completely in my body and my hands are free for dealing for what I want and I made some important decisions within the last days. How amazing!

At the moment every day is like a wonder, as I am discovering myself in this new life…


My whole life I have wished to be able to sing, to express all that I feel in my heart.

This week, my dream has come true and I take this wonderful , full of light energy into my future life with me.

Thank you so much from my heart for this experience.

I don’t have words to describe what I feel.

A deep inner happiness and serenity. A place deeply rooted in me. I see so much beauty around me. So much depth we have experienced and at the same time

we had a lot of fun. I tell other people of our week and they immediately feel the passion, pure joy, love, connectedness. It was magical!

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank’s Kevin that you showed us your way of life. You are in my heart!

It was totally amazing. Kevin’s music went so deep into my heart, I was feeling like it wants to jump out and radiate like a huge sun.

The energy was so strong, solving, supporting and open. The circle was like a big family. People got so close to each other from the first day.

I never felt stronger connection to myself, my heart and other people.

The experience was totally gorgeous.
