  • Sound Meditation ~ Clare Dawson ~ Put it in your diary! Friday 26 October 7:45 to 8:45pm ~


    Sounds meditation (or sound bath) is a meditative experience, using sound to invite a restorative and therapeutic effect, on the body and mind.

    Participants take up the ‘savasana’ posture, lying down with the use of props – bolster, blankets, eye pillows.

    The session starts with a gentle guided breathing practice that leads into the sound experience, introduced in succession.  The various sounds and vibrations are created by a variety of overtone-emitting instruments including turning forks, gongs, shruit box, Himalayan and crystal singing bowls, chimes and voice.

    With the high ceilings at Hubert St the sound is incredible.  The will be an event not to miss!

    A relaxing and meditative experience to deeply rest, restore and rejuvenate.
