Sacred Sound Class
October 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
James Cloutier is a life long musician, licensed bodyworker and sound healing facilitator. He discovered a magical musical instrument called a “Hand pan” 5 years ago which changed the trajectory of his path in life. He has since studied under numerous sound healing practitioners, performed around beautiful parts of the country, and has embodied a life of mindfulness through meditation, yoga, qi gong and self cultivation. James believes music is the universal language of connection and that we all share a unique ability to heal ourselves, heal others and heal the planet. His wish is to awaken the inner Alchemist in all of us.
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.
Each 90 minute sound healing session opens with 7 minutes of breathwork and meditation to connect with the body with the inner being. You remain in a relaxed and supported position on the back for the remainder of the session. Simply be present, take in the vibrations and experience the experience.
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.
