what is a sound bath?
a meditative, multi-sensory experience in which participants are bathed in the vibration of various instruments while lying down with blankets, bolsters, and eye masks
If you are looking to unwind and find some time and space to relax, a sound bath could benefit you. It can be a perfect option to slow down for a change in the midst of our fast paced, modern world. This method is a holistic approach toward relaxing and healing. Typically, I will use crystal singing bowls, gong, Koshi wind chimes, and Biosonic tuning forks as my instruments of choice to facilitate this offering. Everything about my sound bath experience is a live, in-person offering.
So what's actually happening in a sound bath to encourage our minds and bodies to relax and induce healing? Simply put, what will typically occur is a shift in the brainwave state. Imagine your brain waves literally slowing down - going from the beta state (normal waking consciousness), to alpha wave state (relaxed consciousness), to theta (meditative state), and even all the way to the delta brain wave state (where internal healing can occur). This experience is about letting the sound take you to a deeper place of ease, igniting personal inquiry, and exploring your internal world on your own terms.
