Deep Rest Sound Journey
|Hosted by||Comfort in Sounds|
|Add to calendar||Google · ICS|
Join us for a sound journey intended to help you slow down, quiet your mind and gently repair your nervous system at a profound level.
This is a special opportunity to connect more deeply with your Self and charge your intentions around the time of the dark/new moon for the month or season ahead. Drop in, and allow yourself to be held through an acoustic meditation that will help quiet the mind, awaken the body's senses, and open up your consciousness to receive a transmission of sound medicine that will blend a variety of sacred musical instruments, creating a unique and immersive soundscape.
The sound bath will be held at the Healing House, a beautiful and secluded oasis for intimate events and ceremonies. It will last just over an hour, incorporating the sounds of various chakra attuned crystal bowls (432Hz) and Himalayan singing bowls from Nepal and India, a gong, the shamanic drum, an assortment of rattles, shakers, and bells, a rain stick, ocean drum, and koshi wind chimes.
At the end, there will be 7 minutes of silence, inviting you to rest in a silent meditation, as you integrate and finish receiving the medicine, before concluding the evening. There is then no rush to leave...you can stay behind, drink some tea, pull an oracle card and socialise with other attendees (if you wish to).
Everything is provided for, including mats, blankets, cushions, and refreshments, so all you need to do is show up and relax into the sound and remember…It is safe to rest.
Tickets limited to 11.
BENEFITS OF SOUND THERAPY
Sound has a wonderful way of cleansing the body, mind, and soul without the need for language. Sound carries a vibrational rhythm, moving through objects and space. It is conducted by water, which makes up 60% of our bodies. Sound therapy operates through a process of entrainment and resonant frequency. Every object (including various parts of our body) is vibrating - the rate at which it vibrates is its resonant frequency. Entrainment is a natural process in which a rhythmic pattern induces other objects to fall into the same rhythm. In other words, entrainment synchronises fluctuating, irregular brainwaves and frequencies (that various parts of the body are tuned to) by providing stable and harmonious frequencies which they can re-attune to. As such, sound healing therapy can release energetic blockages, realign and restore flow to our energy. It is also a powerful tool for inducing a meditative theta brainwave state and regulating the nervous system, allowing the body to revert to a state of ‘rest and digest’, which promotes our own innate capacity to heal.
