SOLD OUT - Simply Sound Bath Meditation Sunday

 —  —

Hummingbird Healing Center, 57 Main Street, Westport

Welcome to our Simply Sunday Sound Bath Meditation.

This Sound Meditation will slow down your brainwaves and guide you into a deep meditative state or altered state of consciousness. You will lay down comfortably and then be “immersed” in the sounds, vibrations and harmonics of the therapeutic Sound Instruments. Gongs, Himalayan bowls, crystal singing bowls, tuning forks and shamanic percussion instruments are played in a clinically tested, therapeutic sequence to maximize benefits.

Research has shown that vibrational sound healing has been a powerful adjunct in the treatment of addiction, pain, sleep, anxiety, trauma, grief and depression. This ancient healing technique was used by early Egyptians, Australian Aborigines, and Greek philosophers to treat a myriad of ailments. As a Sound Therapist, I use Himalayan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, Gongs, Koshi Chimes, Tuning forks and Therapeutic Percussion Instruments to generate powerful vibrations and tones to induce a relaxed and meditative state. The power of sound permeates the body, much like when you stand close to a loud speaker and you can feel the music throughout your body. Therapeutic Sound Bath Meditation is gaining popularity for its powerful benefits. A typical session is 60-90 minutes and can be done in group settings - Group Sound Baths or individually in treatment sessions. Participants sit or recline comfortably with a blanket, pillow and eye pillow. The sound and vibration guides participants into a meditative state which relieves tension.Sometimes a sound bath will engender a release so strong that it brings a person to tears. Typical benefits of a sound bath include: Immediate reduction in anxiety and stress Reduces pain Improves symptoms of depression Aids in the treatment of addiction Improves stress management Promotes sleep Regulates sleep patterns Helps process grief Reduces blood pressure Increases blood circulation Enhances memory, concentration, and focus Improves mood and sense of happiness Stimulates the immune system
