What is a Sound Bath?
A Sound Bath is a time for your own inward journey. This journey will be experienced in the deep frequencies of sound. Feel your way through a myriad of tonal vibrations. Sound Healing instruments may include Gongs, Crystal Bowls, Drums, Tongue drum, Sansula, chimes, Koshi, flutes and more. A sound bath is a sonic vacation, no skills required. Make yourself comfortable sit or lie down as you let the sounds wash over you. Some sounds shake up and move energy, other sounds take you into deep relaxation. Sit with these sounds and allow yourself to be curious as to what these sounds bring up for you. A Sound Bath allows you to clear your emotional field by sitting with your emotions as they rise up and practicing letting them go. The Key ingredient in a Sound experience is getting quiet and sitting with whatever comes up. Allowing the mix of Sound Bath and modern sounds to be heard and released.

Dancing till Your Body Drops Tara Semple
Dancing till your body drops, Singing till the music stops, Everything but slowing down, Whispering your own true sound
Father Time licks wounds of action, Mother earth supports our lack, Sister moon lights roads of passage, So we can find our true way back
Chasing threads of worldly wonders, Sealed up lips, words swallowed in, Locked up, shut down, no purpose, Open up, let rise and surface
Whisperings of inner truth, Winds of time they fall forlorn, Wisdom of the modern ages, Calling out to birth, be born
Divine we are, divine we be, Allowing light for all to see, Salvation held, creative muse, Drop deep within, be held be used
