About the Event
Using guided breathwork along with the sounds of the singing bowls, this is a practice of deep relaxation.
I encourage you to find a comfortable posture (sitting or lying down) being mindful to support your neck & lower back.
Dress comfortably & use layers to stay warm. Appropriate for all abilities
The sounds from alchemy quartz crystal singing bowls can be impactful on the body and mind including:
- helping the mind to settle and the brain to enter a peaceful theta (or pre-sleep) state,
- the parasympathetic nervous system to relax/taking a break from being in a constant state of fight-flight-freeze,
- and the body to access the benefits of deep rest.
Learn more about the benefits of crystal singing bowls from Psychology Today, The Healing Power of Sound as Meditation.
