FREE Group Sadhana (Sound Healing) Class
October 10 @ 6:00 am - 7:30 am
Free to the public.
Everything in our universe is information and energy vibrating at specific frequencies. Awaken to the reality of healing the body with vibration and sound.
This involves using sound vibrations to relax your mind and body. “To heal is to make sound,” says Gong Master Martha Collard. “Sound can shift frequencies from low energy of guilt and fear to higher vibrations of love and joy. Sound healing is the use of sacred instruments or voice to release energetic blockages inducing a state of ease and harmony in the body.” While there are many types of sound therapy, all of them produce vibrations that alter your brain waves.
Malbert Lee, a Hong Kong-based Crystal Bowl and Gong Master, says vibrations are especially useful for healing the body. “The adult body is 75% water, and water is a great conductor for sound vibration,” he notes. “When vibrations travel through the body, they promote circulation, energy flow, and rejuvenation. The frequency of the sound synchronizes with the brainwaves and activates de-stress responses in the body.
We begin our Group Sadhana at 6am SHARP (although students trickle in and out) with tuning in, breathwork to connect the body with the inner being, and a 31-minute meditation with live music (when available). This is followed by a kriya (a light physical practice), a Savasana Sound Bath with gongs, singing bowls, chimes, ending with chanting mantra. At the end of Sadhana, we ground ourselves in fellowship with tea and a vegetarian potluck.
When you come for class, wear comfortable clothing (you do not have to wear ‘yoga’ clothes), bring your yoga mat, a blanket and any other props you may need for comfort and support. Simply be present, take in the vibrations, and experience the experience.
