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

  community member   < less Crystal singing bowls

As we greet the sunrise together, with still minds and open hearts, our awareness of nature and subtle energies is heightened. Plugging into nature, and the circadian rhythms of the planet through the power of sound is essential to our wellbeing, where in a state of total relaxation, healing and connection to a higher consciousness can take place. We can then approach the day ahead with a more open heart and calm mind, while simultaneously being a bright light to the folks in our life.
The sound healing, is a sound meditation or sound bath, that begins with each person lying down 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 various sounds, tones, and frequencies being introduced in succession.
Duration 60 minutes.
