About this trip

Heart to Crown in the Catskill Mountains

Raven Crest Retreat Center

Berne, NY


This is your opportunity to dive in + experience the power of your authentic voice.  

Join Vocal Transformation coaches, Maryn Azoff and her partner Patrick Surdam at Ravencrest, a beautiful small-scale medicinal herb farm + retreat center, tucked away in the forested hills of upstate NY. During our time together you'll learn the science + magic behind how your voice can be used to heal your body, manifest your reality + liberate your spirit.  


If you have attended a ‘Root to Heart’ retreat, worked through the online course or have covered the embodiment chakras as a private student of Maryn or Patrick’s, you are eligible to attend a ‘Heart to Crown’ retreat. 


Once the lower chakras have been stabilized, we then move deeper into understanding how the mind functions. Together we will go into a process of releasing the mental programming that is no longer serving us, so we can discover + align with the unique heart-centered vision of the life you wish to create. 



By accessing the crown energy and directing it down into the heart chakra, we will learn how to open up to + trust more deeply in ourselves. For us to do this we must also understand the essential role the throat + third eye chakras play in allowing us to clearly express what we wish to experience in our lives. 

We will focus on exercises to open the throat chakra (Vishuddha, Sanskrit for ‘purification’). This chakra is our energy center of manifestation. Purifying speech means to align it with our highest SELF and to achieve that we must align the heart with the crown. 


The 6th chakra, (Ajna, which means ‘perceive’ or ‘command’),has the capacity to create worlds, but when we are caught in an ego based concept of self and reality, we are limited in what we can create.  Practicing techniques to open this chakra can grant you access to joy, abundance and creativity without bounds.


The root to heart prerequisite is important because to fully and safely open these higher frequencies, one must be grounded and have the foundations set.


In addition to exploring more esoteric spiritual practices we will go deeper into proper vocal technique to achieve maximum tonal capacity.


A Vocal Transformation retreat is designed more as a soul expedition than your typical retreat. The schedule is rigorous + will educate, inspire + challenge you in ways that are designed to produce profound + lasting results. Learn the physical, mental, emotional + spiritual aspects of the human voice as we journey through the upper part of the chakra system to discover where our own voices may be stuck, blocked or weakened by past trauma or lack of sufficient development.

Vocal Transformation is a modern approach to an ancient method to fully claim the range and resonance of your voice while opening up your connection to the creative that flows through you. It blends the spiritual and the scientific to produce profound results in opening up the full capacity of the human voice. Vocal transformation is a process of deprogramming, that opens the channel for spirit to once again drive the creative process and for the practitioner to reclaim their fullest expression and most powerful voice.

My second retreat with Vocal Transformation and my first time to Costa Rica! The experience at Holos is so grounding, from the beautiful glamping accommodations, the conscious food prepared for us daily, the conscientious architectural designs, and nature herself. So much gratitude to the whole team at Holos. And such a big thank you to the Vocal Transformation Team-Family! My body and soul is all the better for having joined in this retreat!

Costa Rica, Holos Retreat Center, focusing on a holistic lifestyle, bestows extraordinary quality and beauty. Sitting among cinnamon trees, listening to the conversation of birds amidst bamboo designs, your nervous system gently regains its flexibility.. The beckoning from Vocal Transformation by Maryn Hope Azoff and the entire beloved team orchestrates a journey surpassing all earthly bounds, transcending mere invitation. As you allow yourself to heal under the protection of angels in heaven, dancing as your soul shines with the diamonds you sip from the sky, you are liberating and adding love to your voice, embracing it with its uniqueness and infuse the purest joy of existence into your smile. the most magical and memorable retreat ever.. I am blessed with this experience and I appreciate everything with deep gratitude.. and will be grateful everyday..

I had a truly transformative experience in the most supportive, loving container. Maryn, Patrick, and the whole team were wonderful facilitators. I had so much fun, and felt extraordinarily supported to evolve and connect more deeply with myself and my voice, especially through my difficult, resisting moments. I am grateful to myself to committing to going, and I want others to experience this growth too. The physical environment and accommodations were beautiful, and the food was very nourishing. I want to attend another vocal retreat with Maryn/this team, that's for sure!

Five stars? More like 6, 7... 10! I can't rate this weeklong workshop high enough. It was one of the most powerful, transformative, and healing experiences of my life. From start to finish, Maryn and her team did an outstanding job--with everything. The workshop was well-organized, informative, challenging, and fun, and it was held in a safe, supportive container that allowed me to overcome fears I knew I had--me, sing in public?--as well as push past blocks I didn't realize were holding me back. On top of all that, the location was absolutely beautiful, and the food was amazing. I highly recommend it!
