What is a SOUNDBATH?
A ‘soundbath’ is an immersive concert of meditative tones and vibrations created by crystal singing bowls, Himalayan singing bowls, and an array of other sounding instruments like the gentle hum of the gong, bells, chimes....all designed to help you take a journey inward for a unique experience. Experiencing sound vibrations in a 'live' setting, the mind and body are very receptive and can help you reach deeper states of relaxation or even meditative states, and one can come out of the experience feeling “re-tuned,” restored and rebalanced. This happens because the vibrations are changing your biology at the cellular level. The vibrations actually SHAKE OUT the dense energy held in our body from our day-to-day stresses. Not only will you have the BEST NIGHT SLEEP, but may feel this gentle calm in your mind + body + spirit for days. We call this sound vibration healing. Sound healing can be traced back to about 40,000 years and can be found in historical documents (Sanskrit) with the ancient Egyptians as well as writings about the Australian Aborigines. The Greek philosopher Pythagoras (c. 570 - c. 495 BC), the "Father of Mathematics", utilized sound vibration to treat mind and body ailments. Today, there is a resurgence all over the country and soundbaths are popping up everywhere...from high-end spas to your local yoga wellness studios.
How Soundbaths can help!
Physically & Spiritually: Sound frequencies resonate with the body’s energy systems. It stimulates these centers, awakening them and releasing the storehouse of creative vital force that is waiting there to be discovered, giving listeners glimpses into the deepest aspects of themselves.
Mentally: This sound is so abstract, so unique that the human mind is unable to associate it with anything familiar, it has to surrender. In this state of ‘surrender’ the healing takes place, the stress is melted away, worries vanish, dreams of the heart rise up and you find yourself exploring deeper into parts of yourself.***Medical studies report sound vibration has significant positive impacts with those struggling with anxiety, PTSS (ptsd), ADHD, depression, chronic pain, sleep issues and more. Even those in casts or with migraine headaches have achieved greater levels of pain relief and comfort.
A 20-minute relaxed state (in theta brain wave state) can be the equivalent to the most restful 8 hours of deep, restful sleep.
*No experience required. Simply lie back and feel effortless relaxation.
This event is suitable for kids ages 10+
Tickets include take home crystal: $40
Required: Per C-19 guidelines, everyone is required to bring their own props. Please bring a yoga mat + blanket in which to lie on, a blanket to cover up, and an eye cover.
The floors are concrete, so additional support is usually needed for those 45+ (in some cases). Some may choose to bring additional props (bolsters under knees, etc.) IF you are more simplistic, you can sit in a chair, but the BEST experience is on the floor in a totally relaxed state. We can situate you next to a wall on the floor too to sit up.
Please contact us to help you accommodate your needs!
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
