Thursday Morning Focus & Balance Sound Meditation With Sound Therapist Gary Posner

Sound Baths are deeply-immersive, full-body listening experiences that intentionally use sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind and body. They have been shown to reduce stress, enable deep relaxation, enhance creativity, uplift the spirit and help with insomnia. Morning Sound Classes aid in recharging, relaxation, restoration and healing. They help bring focus and balance to your day.

You begin your Sound Bath experience by laying down comfortably or supported sitting in a chair. After a few minutes of focused breathing, participants are immersed in sound waves provided by Himalayan Bowls, Gongs, Crystal Singing Bowls and Shamanic percussion all played in an intentional, clinically based, therapeutic sequence.

The goal of the Sound Bath experience is to invite deep rest and relaxation, and explore self-inquiry and self-discovery. Sound is a very accessible form of meditation where benefits are usually experienced right after the first session.

Practicing Sound Meditation Weekly can have deep healing and restorative effects. A recent study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that weekly hour-long sound meditations help to reduce tension, anger, anxiety, and increase spiritual well-being in adults. Join the movement and discover the Healing power of Sound. This month we will be shifting our “Sound Focus” to helping move and shift grief in the physical and mental bodies. We will change the Sound bath Meditation Protocol to facilitate this. One of the elements we will be adding are more “nature sounds” and a longer sequence of harmonic intervals. Come in April and experience this.
