This Valentine’s Day why not gift yourself a loving experience and/or share a heart healing and expanding SOUND BATH with your partner. Set up a comfortable place on your bed or the floor using bolsters, pillows and blankets and relax into the healing vibrations of the gong, alchemy crystal signing bowls, Tibetan bowls and chimes in the comfort of your own home.
Have you experienced a focused sound bath? It is ancient healing, yet seems that is being re-introduced to humanity at this time. In the upcoming year I will be sharing information on sound medicine and offering sound bath experiences online and in person. One of my teachers, Jonathan Goldman is considered to be the Godfather of Sound healing. He has a formula: FREQUENCY + INTENTION = HEALING. “The true sound of healing is LOVE.” Says Sarah Benson (Mother of Sound Healing.). Give yourself this loving attention and experience yourself releasing stress and emotional blocks as you tap into the vibration at the center of your being.
What is sound?
“Everything that moves, vibrates. From the smallest molecule to the Universe itself. As long as it is vibrating, it is making some kind of sound. We may not perceive the sound, as it may be below or above the threshold of our hearing. The human ear can hear sound vibrations between 20 and 20,000 cycles per second, although we also perceive sound by skin and bone conduction, ingesting and consuming it with the whole body…Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland and organ of the human body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency of about 8 cycles per second, literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the Earth itself.” ~ Excerpt from a crystal bowl distributor, author’s name is unknown.
What is Sound Medicine?
“Vibrational medicine is based on the idea that all illness or disease is characterized by a blockage in the channels on some level, whether it be the arteries, veins, nerves and so on. Sound and light resonance can break-up, dissolve, and release these blockages.” ~ Michelle Denton
“Let us…remember that although to all outward appearances, music seems to be over as soon as the last chord has sounded and the celebrants have dispersed, this is not the case. It has also been created on a subtle plane and remains like an exquisite flower hovering over the sanctuary. No musical vibrations are ever lost, even though they are dispersed, they will go on vibrating through the cosmos of eternity, because the subtle effects of sound linger after the audible sound has died out, so that any results are long-lasting.” ~ The Healing Tones of Crystal Bowls, Renee Brodie
The sound medicine I offer helps activate the body’s natural healing system for deep restorative healing on a cellular and emotional level. The harmonizing effect produced by the sound creates a soothing effect throughout the entire body.
One of the sweetest gifts I have been enjoying the last couple of years is sharing a yoga practice with my husband Matt. He is very supportive behind the scenes in setting up and recording these sessions, and now will be joining me in offering this next sound bath. The focus for this workshop is for expansion of the fourth chakra…Anahata chakra. Anahata chakra speaks the language of love, forgiveness, compassion and interconnectedness. It’s energetic job is to help us to love unconditionally both ourselves and others.
What to expect in this session…
- Breath work and postures to gently open the chest and heart, creating the opportunity to release grief and sadness held at this center.
- Learn tools for stimulating immune system & open the physical cage around the heart.
- Practice a breathing exercise called “Meditation to Calm the Heart.” This is the perfect practice to use before having an important conversation with your partner.
- Relaxing sound bath while you rest. For many, the result is a blissful state of consciousness. I like to call it “sound medicine.”
- Come away feeling lighter, open to giving and receiving more love.
You are invited to join in this relaxing and healing experience. I ask an energy exchange of $9.99 for a 60 minute online workshop (generally $25 in person). However, as my gift to you if you are unable to pay this fee, do not miss out email me your request for FREE ACCESS along with a note.
Join us. Be still, receive, give thanks. There is nothing that you need to do as much as you NEED TO BE.
