Suraya Sam is the co-creator for House of Ascend, a concept born from her vision quest with Huachuma Ceremony alongside her family of Huachumeros in the Sacred Valley of Peru in 2017. She currently resides in Bergen, Norway and is a certified Educator, Trainer and Facilitator with over 13 years of experience in Yoga, Meditation, Chakra Therapy, Pranayama, Gong Meditation, Gong Nidra and Aromatherapy.
We host an intimate bespoke entheogen retreat twice a year in the Summer and Winter season at our family-owned sanctuary located in the heart of the Sacred Valley, Peru. This mystical experience offers you deep insights into the Self and the Universe, giving you a greater sense of connection and spirituality fostering compassion and gratitude with the elements of Mother Nature.
You are cordially invited to our quarterly ceremonial experiences in the sunny island of Singapore. Our ceremonial experiences are intimate and designed to ignite your life force energy, strengthen your intuition and empower you to embody your true nature through embodied movement, somatic connection and sound journey.
Our co-creator Suraya specialises in Gong Therapy, also known as Music Therapy or Sound Therapy where she facilitates and augments her practice using therapeutic musical instruments mainly with Gongs alongside Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan Singing Bowls and Monochord. This bespoke offering makes yoga and meditation easy, enjoyable, deeply relaxing and revitalising. It is an everyday retreat that strengthens your mind, boosts your mood, relieves stress and helps you find equilibrium.

Sound Meditation uses music and sound to clear the Mind and deepen meditation. This ancient practice is used by many cultures, religions and mystic traditions. Music is multi-dimensional, linking realms of the Brain and facilitating meditation independently of thought. It can ease anxiety and promote a sense of well being.
Suraya has crafted a few Sound Meditation recordings for Home Practice.
