A Sound Bath is a full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic processes to nurture the mind and body.
The experience begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position, often with a blanket and an eye mask. After a few minutes of guided focus on the breath, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession.
The sounds are created by a variety of instruments including singing bowls, chimes, gong, Native American drums, rattles & voice. When you sink into a sound bath and guide your awareness to your listening, you allow your brain waves to slow, shifting from a more active state to a more relaxed, or even dreamlike state. The sounds introduced during a sound bath are an invitation into a deeper state of consciousness, an opportunity to unplug from the external stimuli and to gain perspective on what’s going on within you.
