Sound Bath FAQs
What if I'm not good at meditating or am new to sound baths?
It’s all good! Sound baths require no previous experience and are a great learning tool for calming the racing thoughts in your mind and encouraging your body to relax on command. Sometimes it's hard to control the mind with the mind which is why the physical sensory stimuli of a sound bath can be helpful in reaching a relaxed state. I believe we’re trained all through life to spring into action and be active on command but we don’t practice enough conscious and intentional relaxation. Sound baths are a perfect way to make relaxation a regular part of your wellness routine.
What are the benefits of a sound bath?
Some of the most commonly reported benefits are reduced stress and anxiety leading to deep relaxation. This can happen on the physiological level like lowering high blood pressure and slowing fast heart rate as well as mentally and emotionally like feeling centered and calm. Some people find it spiritually enriching and the experience is not bound to any specific philosophy or dogma. Some people report that even just 20 min of a sound bath feels as restful and restorative as several hours of quality sleep.
Will your sound bath be like other sound baths I've been to?
There is no universal standard for sound baths and each sound bath facilitator has their own way of conducting sessions. While the specific proceedings and instruments may differ a common general intention is to establish a supportive container in which participants can deeply relax. Participants are invited to attend with open minds and open hearts for the best experience.
