Sound Bath A gentle and meditative immersion in the sounds of singing bowls, drums, gongs, and other tools.
About the experience:
Participants “bathe” in the vibrations of ancient and modern instruments, allowing for deep rest. Appropriate for all seeking stillness, relaxation, meditation, or simply a really great nap.
Guests often ask about the difference between sound baths and gong baths. Typically, sound baths tend to be gentle, mellow, and melodic, whereas the gong is a more powerful experience: stronger vibrations and slightly louder sound. Neither is "better" or more "advanced" than the other. Just like genres of music, different people simply have different preferences. We encourage you to try both and see what each has to offer.
IMPORTANT!
Please bring with you:
-a mat/blanket to lie on,
-a blanket for warmth, and
-a pillow for under your head
To prevent cross-contamination, these items WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO BORROW. Come prepared with whatever you need to feel comfortable lying on the floor!
Dress warmly and comfortably. MASKS covering the nose and mouth must be worn at all times. Each person will need to register in order to attend, and fill out a waiver form , as well as a health screening questionnaire on the day of the class.
