As everything is vibrating so are we, sometimes we can become out of tune in either mind body or spirit and dis-ease can start to take hold. Through the healing frequencies of sound therapy our bodies can be brought back in tune and we can begin to feel healthy and balanced once more. Come and feel the deep relaxation and stress relieving effects of a therapeutic Sound Bath. Using Planetary and Symphonic Gongs, Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan Singing Bowls and other instrument’s rich harmonic frequencies you will be bathed in sound while you switch off, feeling the stresses and strains of the day melting away as peace and harmony come singing back to you.
What happens during a Sound Bath
During a Sound Bath you are taken on a sonic meditative journey . While you lie down comfortably with your eyes closed Leigh and Alexis will play various instruments around you known for their vibratory healing frequencies. You are free to relax and drift off where the sound takes you.
What to expect
A safe space and an atmospheric/relaxing environment with high quality Gongs and other sound tools like Singing Bowls, Koshi Wind chimes, Rainsticks, Chimes, Wave Drum, Frame Drums, Flute and a Shruti Box. The session may include all, or some of these. Yoga mats are positioned around the Gongs and sound tools. You choose your space and lay in the most comfortable position for you (laying down on a comfortable mat is usual but not essential, so if you prefer you can sit down. A short intro and setting your intention. A guided meditation/visualisation focusing on the breath to allow your whole being to settle in and relax. The more relaxed you are the more beneficial the session is for you. A sonic immersion with the sounds of the Gongs and related sound tools. A period of silence called the Shunyata, the Golden Silence. Its important not to get up straight away and enjoy this peaceful stillness. You are welcome to come and speak with us or email us after the session with any questions.
How does it work?
We start with a centering breathing practise to bring us to the present moment then therapeutic instruments such as Gongs and Tibetan singing bowls stimulate the alpha and theta brain wave frequencies associated with meditative, clear and peaceful states of mind. If you have any serious health conditions whether physical/mental or emotional then please let us know so we can advise if this practise is suitable for you.
