About the Event I'm so excited to be offering my Sound Bath in this amazing space at the Quay Arts Centre in Newport!
Join me for a chilled and relaxing Sunday Soundwaves Sound Bath to help you restore and revive for the week ahead.
You'll experience the nourishing power of SINGING BOWLS, CRYSTAL BOWLS, GONG to deeply relax.
WHAT IS A SOUND BATH?
A Sound Bath - or Sound Journey - is a deeply immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses Sound Waves to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to rebalance your body and mind.
Participants are invited to lie down in a comfortable position, with blankets and supporting props (mats, pillows, bolsters, eye masks etc). A seated position also works. After a few minutes of guided relaxation, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession. The sounds are created by a variety of overtone-emitting instruments including Singing Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Drum, Gongs, Chimes, Rainstick and Voice.
The Sounds produced will enable brain waves to transcend from their normal waking state of BETA to slow and deepen into the relaxed state of ALPHA, through to the dream state of THETA and some participants may even move through into the restorative state of DELTA. There is Rest in stillness and silence, at the end of the session, to allow the body to fully absorb and integrate the Sound and its therapeutic work.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Many participants just ‘drift off’ during a Sound Bath. It’s important to bring enough mats / blankets / pillows / masks to ensure maximum comfort, in order to fully surrender to a relaxed state. Previous participants have reported feeling a dreamlike state and, in some cases, experiencing beautiful visions!
In terms of the Sounds themselves, most people would recognise the ring of a Metal Singing Bowl; these are used to bring participants into the space and into their bodies. The Crystal Bowls have an abstract sound which can feel both ethereal and intense dependant on the recipient. Gongs are used to bring participants into a deeper state of relaxation and into deeper bran wave activity. Again, the sounds of the gong can be abstract and sometimes intense. It is helpful to note that if a participant feels that the sound is challenging or intense, it is most likely facilitating much needed energy shifts or rebalancing!
Sound therapy is wonderfully passive; no experience needed – all you need to do is turn up, get comfy and relax
It is always helpful and nourishing to honour oneself with TIME. The simple act of taking time out can be beneficial in itself.
Many participants report some / all of the following:
Deep sense of relaxation A shift of ‘stuck’ energy A physical / mental release of tension Calming and quietening of the mind Increased focus and clarity Improved quality of sleep WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Blankets - as many as you can carry! Sleeping Bags also work well. 2 x Pillows / Bolsters – One for under the Head & one for under the Knees Yoga Mat or Bed Roll to lie on Eye Mask / Eye Pillow / Scarf to cover the eyes Warm, comfy layers of clothing Water ON THE DAY
