The Healing and Expressive Arts
Retreats and Educational Classes
The purpose of a sound bath is to allow vibrational frequencies to deeply penetrate your body to a cellular level for relaxation, inspiration, purging and release of tension. Sound journeys may be received lying down, sitting or on a massage table or futon. Sound “shifts energy” and may shift the patterns of our atoms, cells and thoughts, allowing you to enter a “trance” state, or even produce a thought free state where awareness of self is evident in the realization that you are a body of vibrating energy. The experience you receive depends upon your ability to hear harmonics, binaural beats or higher frequencies of sound. As your journey is individualized though this process, it is highly experiential and can offer guidance and informational streams as well as a deeper look into holding patterns of thought. Sound influences the brain waves encouraging theta trance like and relaxing waves to a more stimulated and activating brain wave like alpha and beta waves. My instructor, Mitch Nur of 9 Ways Academia has also stated that gongs and other harmonic instruments may be the opener of time portals which is why I like to call my work Sound Journeys! A more in depth explanation will be given before the Sound Bath and time for reflection and questions after your session.
