A sound bath is an immersive sound experience, a deep relaxation method. 
Sound baths combine music & sound, trauma release, and meditation.

Sound baths generally describe a sound experience that you can immerse yourself in. It is called a "sound bath" because the sound waves "bathe" you as you relax and receive the musical experience. Some examples of sound baths are sound baths combined with mindfulness, experiential sound baths, guided sound journeys, and guided sound meditations.

A sound bath combines mindfulness practice, breathwork, and deep listening, and puts your mind in a meditative state, with the possibility of specific brainwave entrainment.
It is believed that harmonics, low frequency sounds, as well as binaural dynamics assist the waking mind in entering a meditative state. It is also believed that the low-frequency vibrations emitted by the instruments penetrate the body and lead to relaxation.

Sound meditation is a sound bath using instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, drums and many other instruments. Sound meditation is a form of meditation that combines the benefits of gentle sounds and guided meditation.

Sound journeys can be an activating, balancing and/or relaxing experience. They combine guided inner journeys, sound bathing, and the use of various instruments to guide you to journey within.

How does a Sound Bath work?

No special experience, preparation or clothing is required for a sound bath. We lie down on yoga mats, fitness mats or a comfortable place with a warming blanket and an eye mask.

During the sound bath, you lie with your eyes closed (or an eye mask), and the sound expert creates gentle sounds that envelop you. You listen to the low frequency sounds of traditional and modern instruments. The soothing sounds and musical dynamics put you in a deep state of relaxation. The corresponding instruments vibrate in frequency ranges that are believed to move the brain into alpha, theta, and delta wave states and even into so-called gamma frequency ranges. It has been observed that sound can act like an "elevator" to meditative states. You experience mental insights, physical sensations or relaxation, translucent moments, synesthesia - the range is wide. At the end of a session you feel deeply relaxed, light, balanced, calm and serene.

What happens during a session?

The session begins with arriving, setting up for the sound bath, a brief introduction and a short guided meditation with breathing exercise to lead you towards the sound bath. The instruments are then played for 30-90 minutes. You sit or lie comfortably and relaxed, listening to the various sounds. The session ends with silence to allow the experience to integrate - followed by a guided closure that allows you to return to the present moment.

Digital Sound Bath

Imagine giving your eyes and mind a break, simply and gently. A virtual session is a good way to take a break from your daily routine, home office, laptop or cell phone. You should be in a room where you are not disturbed by other people or loud noises. You will need headphones, a comfortable place to lie down, and a safe place to close your eyes and listen.  We want to create a relaxed space during the session to achieve a state of calm and serenity. It is important that you wear headphones to get the most out of the virtual session.
