Healing Crystal Bowl Sound Bath & Meditation
Feb 13, 2022 - Feb 13, 2022

Imagine being immersed in beautiful sounds that are healing to your body, mind, and soul.

A sound bath session is a healing session you can experience while resting in a safe and secure place.

Sound is one of the oldest known forms of healing. Everything has a vibration and we as individuals have our own unique frequency.

In this class, you will rest comfortably and allow the vibrations of crystal bowls, a spirit drum, singing bowls, and other instruments to move through your mind and body offering awareness, insights, and healing wherever it is needed. This sound experience will bring synchronization and balance back to your body and energetic system. Time is suspended as you enter a world of vibration, sensation, and experience.

During this session, Karen will also incorporate a Kundalini meditation. The Kundalini is energy that travels up your spine, and when it is healthy and in balance it allows you to live at your best. We will close the session with time for journaling and quiet introspection of this unique experience. 

A few of the known benefits of sound healing are:

- improved sleep

- improved memory and concentration

- deep relaxation

- reduced pain and inflammation

- release of energetic blockages

- slowing down of the heart rate and brain waves

- stress reduction that soothes, purifies and harmonizes your emotions and feelings

- increase in vital energy flow, creativity, intuition, and motivation.

- balancing of both hemispheres of the brain and positive changes to our whole being.

The main purpose of sound healing is to restore harmony in our bodies and to bring peace to our lives.

Please bring a yoga mat if you intend to lay down for the class, as well as cushions, pillows, and a bottle of water to ensure you are comfortable.

 

IMPORTANT: Proof of vaccination will be required in order to attend. A second dose receipt can be shown at the door. No need to provide in advance.
