Benefits of sound baths/ sound meditation:
Sound healing brings one into a deeply relaxed, meditative state… an often dream-like ethereal trance state in which stress and anxiety leave the body/mind/spirit and harmony, well-being & higher states of consciousness are integrated from within. Physically, sound healing works through the nervous system of your body, traveling through the liquid of your cells, and increasing the output of dopamine and serotonin, bringing your nervous system back into balance.

Please arrive at 7:15 to get settled into a cozy nest. The floor will be about half covered in mats, but there is not enough for all, so please bring a yoga mat and also a blanket and pillow for your comfort if you wish, as well as something to put over your eyes to block out the light (to go deeper into a relaxed Theta brainwave state).

IMPORTANT-- Please be mindful of the quiet container we hold lovingly at our events so everyone can go deeply into the sound healing journey without distraction. We welcome you to attend if you can lie quietly & still for an hour. Please do not attend if you are having a current health challenge that could potentially disrupt other's journeys around you. You're welcome to bring whatever props you need to be comfortable lying down. For this same reason, this event would not be suitable for children under 10.
