Join Greg Burns for the incredible experience of a Sound Healing Bath!
“Sound is the force of creation, the true whole. Music then, becomes the voice of the great cosmic oneness and therefore the optimal way to reach this final state of healing.”
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Give yourself the opportunity for deep relaxation and deep states of meditation by coming to melt into a Sound Bath experience!
Greg Burns of Metta Vibrations will be offering a Sound Bath experience at the end of the first day of the Festival of Light, starting at 5:30pm. After beginning with some gentle guided relaxation, Greg will use therapy-grade Tibetan singing bowls, symphonic gong, chimes and more to create an atmosphere of harmonic vibration. No experience is necessary and participants will simply be encouraged to lay down or sit and relax into the experience of the sounds. Greg will fill the space with sound for about an hour, before offering time to ground and reflect before concluding the session.
