Join us on Friday, Sept. 22 for a Seasonal Gong Celebration in which participants can renew their inner light through the sound of Sacred Gongs. Equinoxes and Solstices are astronomical events that mark the cycle of the sun throughout the year, indicating change between the four seasons. Observing and celebrating these events connects us to our own inner cycles and creates an opportunity for reflection, enlightenment, and awakening. This process allows us to walk the internal spiritual path where we discover harmony and alignment to our own inner Mystic.

Dress in comfortable clothing to sit or lie down and feel free to bring anything that might help you get comfortable — the studio has blankets, bolsters, and yoga mats for your use.

Sound Meditation Concert — Sound has abundant power to help us heal and reclaim our wholeness. This workshop takes us on a melodic journey through the use of traditional and non-traditional musical instruments. Students lie or sit as rhythmical sound transports the body to a state of deep meditation through the heart center, and ultimately to the inner sanctuary of Spirit. This harmonic experience is a boost for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Come and experience a surprisingly powerful way to heal, release stress, and connect with inner joy and wisdom.

Dress comfortably. Yoga mats or chairs are provided.

Sound Therapy is vibrational therapy, often used as an adjunct to allopathic, homeopathic, and energy medicine. Scientific research shows it induces a state of relaxation/calm and as a result boosts the function of the immune system.
