Sound bath meditations are a combination of restorative yoga, meditation and sacred sound concert. They have been shown to have many physical and emotional benefits. Sound Meditations slow down your brainwaves and guide you into a deep meditative state or altered state of consciousness (ASC). They have been shown to reduce stress, enable deep relaxation, enhance creativity, possibly uplift the spirit and help with insomnia.
A typical session:
starts with a brief discussion about the instruments and how they will be played,
followed by a short breathing meditation
Mantra singing or Kirtan
continues with either lying down, or sitting in a chair, for approximately 45 minutes while experiencing the playing of therapeutic sound instruments - Himalayan Singing bowls, Gongs, Crystal Bowls, Harmonium, Rainsticks, Bola Chimes, Koshi Chimes, Shamanist
concludes with a brief checking of everyone's experience.
