This journey will begin with a meditative blacklight yoga flow, designed to stretch and relax your muscles and minds. In savasana, a guided yoga nidra meditation will prepare you for the cosmic ether sound healing gong bath within the mysterious musical realm of the the spheres.
Himalayan singing bowls from the 17th & 18th century, gemstone crystal bowls, planetary tuning forks, rattles, shamanic drumming, the ocarina, and chanting combine in our gong baths, featuring the Sun and Saturn Planetary Gongs. The instruments will sing while you clear your mind of chatter in relaxing savasana, reconnecting with your heartbeat and breath. Create a still crystal lake in which to journey. Let resonating percussion be your guide.
Return to the material realm of illusion imbued with wellness and filled with holy spirit.
