About the experience:
Participants “bathe” in the vibrations of ancient and modern instruments, allowing for deep rest. Appropriate for all seeking stillness, relaxation, meditation, or simply a really great nap.
Guests often ask about the difference between sound baths and gong baths. Typically, sound baths tend to be gentle, mellow, and melodic, whereas the gong is a more powerful experience: stronger vibrations and slightly louder sound. Neither is “better” or more “advanced” than the other. Just like genres of music, different people simply have different preferences. We encourage you to try both and see what each has to offer.
IMPORTANT! Please bring with you:
- a mat/blanket to lie on,
- a blanket for warmth, and
- a pillow for under your head
To prevent cross-contamination, these items WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO BORROW. Come prepared with whatever you need to feel comfortable lying on the floor!
Dress warmly and comfortably. Masks are required for entry. Please note that the maximum capacity for this event is 14 guests. At maximum capacity, there will not be a distance of 6ft. between guests. Each person will need to register in order to attend, and fill out a waiver form which can be digitally filled out and emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
