Sound Baths with gongs and Tibetan bowls
USING SOUND TO MEDITATE
We all know the power music has to change our mental state. Music has a deep emotional resonance and can lift our energy or relax us, disturb or excite us, and can bring about blissful and trancelike states.
Sound is an incredibly powerful and transformative medium. I have worked for many years with gongs, Tibetan bowls and various other sound sources to aid meditation, and over many hundreds of group and private sessions I have witnessed the ability of these ancient instruments to alter one’s state and bring about a contemplative/meditative mind space.
PRIVATE OR GROUP SESSIONS
A live sound bath is a deeply immersive experience, creating a profoundly meditative state of mind in which many beneficial psychological and physical effects can manifest. Sound healing can help with anxiety, depression and insomnia amongst its many benefits.
I offer personal sessions at your home, group sessions for up to 40 people at your venue, and corporate/business sessions.
HOW SOUND CREATES ALTERED STATES
Human beings have used sound throughout history as a ritual tool to alter consciousness. Shamanic and religious traditions across the world use sound, rhythm, and repetition to bring about heightened states and attempt to open communication with the divine source, the spirit realm, the ascended ones, the ancestors, or the gods.
There are many different experiences and beliefs across different cultures, but the similarities in the use of sound to bring about these numinous states is striking.
