"Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Journey": Verapose Yoga & Meditation House.

  community member   < less

As we greet the sunrise together, with still minds and open hearts, our awareness of nature and subtle energies is heightened. It's the perfect time to experience the divine sounds of these beautiful crystal instruments. The tones from these sacred crystal singing bowls can lead one into a state of total relaxation in which healing and connection to a higher consciousness can take place.

The sound journey, sound meditation or sound bath begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position, often with a blanket and an eye mask. After a few minutes of guided focus on the breath, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds, tones, and frequencies being introduced in succession.

Victoria Schon, our facilitator, offers a unique inner journey guided by a variety of sounds, all with assorted frequencies and vibrations. In addition to the graceful and celestial sounds of crystal singing bowls, she incorporates Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, gongs

  community member   < less Event Poster

In this sometimes dark, sometimes hilarious play by contemporary German playwright Dea Loher, you'll meet Heinrich Blaubart (Blaubart means Blue Beard), who bears some resemblance to Blue Beard from the French fairy tale by the same name, who kills his wives when they disobey him and enter the forbidden chamber of his castle. Like the original Blue Beard, Heinrich Blaubart brings death to women he meets. Unlike the original Blue Beard, though, he doesn't seek to do so; in fact, his fear of relationships makes him try to avoid women. Presented in German by U-M students. Surtitles will make it possible for even non-German speakers to follow the action on stage. Directed by Janet Hegman Shier.
