6:30 PM - 6:30 PM
For our next Sound Journey this coming New Moon we will be in the wonderful Old Church on Church Street with its magical acoustic.
Join us for an immersion into sound, an opportunity to relax and let the inner ear open, bringing a healing theta state to the brain and positive vibrations to the body. Using a mixture of acoustic instruments, loops and electronics a soundscape is created to bring balance, grounding and cleansing. Allow yourself to be soothed by the sounds of himalayan bowls, bells, shakers, shamanic drum, shruti box, open-tuned guitar, flute, gentle multi-channel drone and vocal mantras. Through sonic vibration we activate the resonance of the inner unstruck sound that is waiting to be discovered..
Our sound journey is a facilitated space where you are invited to rest in awareness of sound for 90 minutes. About 1 hour of this will be laying in savasana on a yoga mat.
We have yoga mats and pillows, please bring your own if you have them and also blankets / sleeping bags for warmth and comfort.
You can pay at the door but we have limited space so please reserve your space by making payment here:
