Sound Meditation (often known as ‘sound healing’) is the practice of listening to soothing sounds to reach profound states of clarity and relaxation. It opens up deep meditative states that are usually unreachable without considerable effort.

During the event, participants lie down and are bathed head to toe in sound— it’s a very hypnotic, ethereal experience.
You will come away with a clear mind, and a deeper appreciation for the wonder of sound. We strongly recommend this event for people who have trouble meditating, or feel like they just “can’t get there.” Give this a try :).

Sound Meditation Presents promotes the ancient healing practice of sound work as a way to affect physical health and conscious awareness.

Promotes Deep Meditation
Heightens Clarity
Improves Ability to Concentrate
Relieves Insomnia
