Immerse yourself in a soothing bath of Kiko~sounds and experience an inner journey of deep listening, relaxation and self-healing. Sound Baths are a form of shared meditation. They are a practice of creating stillness in the body, quieting the mind and opening to frequency and sound waves intended to guide the body and mind into a restful and meditative state of being. This experience is suitable for all levels and bodies.
A sound bath is a sublime inner journey where frequency is used with the intention of inviting meditative and therapeutic effects into the body. It is not a performance, but an ephemeral and unique shared felt experience in deep listening. Sound Baths are beneficial for all beings from newcomers and those working with illnesses, injures and other limitations to advanced practitioners and experienced meditators. It can be thought of as form of meditation, restorative yoga, and also as simply a very enjoyable and pleasurable experience of rest and deep listening. By inviting our bodies to rest in these deeper states of relaxation through the access point of sound, we open the door to profound journeys of self-discovery and self-healing. Our bodies experience sound through so much more than what is audible to our ears. Sound and vibration are felt through our skin, in our bones and deep within the nervous system. Receiving a sound bath can help create shifts in our bodies and this allows for the space and possibility for healing to take place on many different levels. By tuning into ourselves while sharing a communal environment, we also create the opportunity to attune to each other through the shared experience of sound.
Sound has been utilized in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Sound can bring balance, relaxation and a sense of wholeness to the body. It often leads to new states of meditative awareness not normally accessible. This is because the sound of harmonic vibrations created by singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks and other sound healing instruments can signal the nervous system to downshift into a parasympathetic state while stimulating alpha, theta and delta brain waves. These waves are associated with deep intuition, creativity and and peaceful feelings that are highly tuned to self healing and can bring our subtle bodies into a state of balance.
Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable layered clothes. You'll begin lying down on a mat in a restorative yoga posture modified and suitable for all bodies. This will help you prepare for optimal receiving during the session. Listeners are guided through gentle relaxation techniques that may include safe and simple breath work, and guided visualizations. During the session you will be bathed in an immersive intuitive soundscape created with a harmonic selection of overtone-emitting instruments that may include crystal alchemy and Himalayan singing bowls, chimes, mallet percussion instruments, rattles, gongs, tuning forks, shruti box and voice. Each sound bath is conceived and shared with great consideration towards Mother Nature and her seasons, planetary positions as well as the combined energies of the individuals attending. Because of this no two sound baths are alike and each brings with it a special magic never to be repeated again.
All mats and props are provided, however you are welcome to bring your own mat if you prefer.
