Last weekend, I attended my first Sound Meditation workshop at my local yoga studio.
For 90 minutes, we lay on our backs with a bolster under our knees, listening to a range of sounds originating from Himalayan and crystal bowls, gongs, rain sticks and chimes.
This workshop took the “woo” out of “woo woo”, and I was incredibly moved by this participatory experience. Here, in a place of stillness, one becomes open and aware of the surrounding sounds while feeling energy and vibrations moving through the meridians of our bodies.
Sound is a powerful tool for healing sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress, PTSD or pain.
It induces relaxation while releasing mental blocks, stagnations and emotions. It’s a helpful tool to access the body’s energy centers.
Most importantly, sound meditation is all about being present and whole, allowing yourself to feel the vibrations through your body, along with a range of emotions and experiences.
With the holiday weekend and end of summer approaching, back to school or college, back to work, endless "to do" lists ....
