A Sound Healing Meditation or 'Sound bath' is both deeply relaxing AND activates your body's natural healing systems --which eases and releases physical, mental & emotional stress.
Physically, sound healing works through the liquid of your body, traveling through the water in your body. We are 70-90% comprised of water. Every cell begins to vibrate in resonance with the sacred sounds, bringing your system back into a state of harmony & well-being. It lowers blood pressure, increases oxygen in the cells, and increases the release of the feel-good endorphins, dopamine and serotonin.
Sound healing takes your brain into the deeper brainwave states of Theta/Delta, in which deep healing is possible. Well-being and higher states of consciousness flow in. It can be a powerful time to set Intention (be in gratitude), meditate, connect with your spirit guides or simply go into a deep sleep. All are perfect and the sound healing frequencies will bring every cell into vibrational alignment no matter what you experience.
**Please bring your blankets, mats, cushions/back jacks & pillows to create your own comfy, sanctuary nest. Also, great to bring water and eye mask to go deep into Theta.
**Since listening is key to this experience, it is necessary to have a quiet container for our journey together. Please do not attend at this time if you have persistent sniffles or cough. Also for this reason, this event would not be a good fit for children under 12.
