Sound Healing Workshop
May 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20 – $50
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
The world is waking up to “new age” therapies that are actually ancient. Sound rituals are performed in every indigenous culture we have studied with, where it is deeply understood that sound is an essential element of creation. Today, science is catching up to this understanding.
We will work with instruments and mantras from around the world to develop a relationship with sound as a tool for meditation, deep relaxation, healing, and prayer through the teachings of the four directions, the four elements, and the medicine wheel that is found in traditions the world over.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own sound healing instruments to deepen their relationship, but Tibetan and crystal bowls, gongs, shakers, chimes, shamanic drums and other instruments from around the world will be available.
Where? Foundation of Light
When? Saturday, May 25th, 3-5pm
Suggested Contribution: $20-50
