Sound Bath uses bowls, gongs, and other instruments to create sound vibrations that help focus the mind and bring it into a more relaxed state, as it works on the subconscious mind.
Participants will lay down whilst wearing their normal clothes and are “bathed’ in vibrational sound waves that help to relax and heal the body.
Sound baths can not only provide deep relaxation and the best night of sleep you’ve ever had, they can also help you feel more grounded and even help alleviate anxiety, PTSD and pain.
Using sound for healing may sound weird, but it’s not actually new at all. Its history can be traced a back thousands of years to the ancient Egyptians, Australia’s Aborigines and Greek philosopher Pythagoras, the “Father of Mathematics” who utilized sound to treat mind and body ailments. Historically, sound has been used in various cultures for healing and wellness, from music and chanting to drumming and gonging.
In a sound bath, participants typically lay in a comfortable position on the floor and a sound healer typically plays gongs, Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, didgeridoo and other instruments.
The experience is incredibly relaxing, and the sounds transport your mind and take it on a sensory journey, similar to the way a movie soundtrack does. Sound baths can be something of a way to force your brain into a meditative state, which can be incredibly helpful for people who have difficulty meditating.
As the sounds pour over you, you may drift off into a state like sleep or dreaming.
Guided Meditation with Tibetan bowls for Healthy Body & Mind
As you start your meditation, a common assumption is that you just sit in a quiet space and don’t think; but that is not really what it is all about. Real meditation is a strengthening of the mind. It is gaining control of your thoughts and not letting them run wild… and it can be challenging!
Having a teacher guide the meditation provides a clear map of your practice, and using the aid of Tibetan bowls can assist with relaxing into the meditation and going into a dream state. When you are able to let go of the surface tension, your experience can go deeper to restore a healthy body and mind. This provides you the inner peace and strength to continue your day to day life.
