Sound Bath

Join Victoria Birch for 60 minutes of deep relaxation and reiki healing as the primordial tones of the gong, gemstone and crystal alchemy singing bowls, and other ancient sound healing instruments carry you into a state of sublime relaxation and meditation. Let go of all that no longer serves you. Leave feeling rebalanced and rejuvenated.

Sound bath benefits include: activating higher states of consciousness, relieving anxiety, stress and insomnia, improving ability to concentrate, decreasing depression, relieving physical pain, releasing emotional trauma, clearing the subconscious mind, and strengthening nervous and glandular systems.

What to wear and bring: comfortable clothes, a bottle of water, and any extra padding or pillows (yoga mats, blankets, and eye pillows will be provided)

Sound Bath starts promptly at 7:30 and late entry will not be allowed. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time to set yourself up.
