What is a Sound Bath? A Sound Bath is a meditative journey that involves various instruments, each varying in vibrations and frequencies. The resonates that are produced affect the entirety of your body leading to a state of total relaxation, where your brain waves transition into theta brain waves. In this state of relaxation, the mind and body are able to come back into alignment and wellness. The Sound Bath Meditation benefits the participants for up to 72 hours. During a Sound Bath Meditation, the participants are asked to bring yoga mats, blankets, and a pillow to lay down on during the meditation. The Sound Bath lowers your heart rate, slows your breathing, allows muscles to release tension, and brings ‘stilllness’ into the mind. A Sound Bath helps to reduce stress, deepen the meditative state, and allow for a sense of peace and well being over you.

Join Michael Murphy for a Sound Bath with 10 large Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, 7 Therapeutic Brass Singing Bowls, four Koshi element chimes, and a Zen gong on Sunday, December 22nd at 7pm.
