Sound Meditation - what is it?

Sound meditation - an immersive sound experience 

that combines meditation, music, and sound, to alter the states of your consciousness.

A sound meditation is a sound bath using instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, drums and other instruments. Sound meditation is a form of meditation that combines the benefits of gentle sounds and guided meditation to return to deep inner balance.

A sound meditation combines meditation practice, breathwork, trauma release, and deep listening to put your mind into a state of 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.

As a neurosomatic deep relaxation method for body, mind and spirit, it is a holistic method to maintain your health. Energetically, systemically, cellularly we would like to support you - especially with the Gong, and other vibroacoustic modalities like Tuning Forks, Singing Bowls, Biofield Tuning, and others.


How does a sound meditation work?

No special experience, preparation or clothing is required for a sound meditation. 
During a sound meditation, 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" toward meditative states. You experience translucent moments, synesthesias, mental insights, physical sensations or relaxation - 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 arrival, a brief introduction and a short guided meditation with breathing exercises to help you engage with the experience. You will lie on yoga mats, fitness mats or a comfortable place with a warming blanket and an eye mask. The instruments are then played for 30-90 minutes. You sit or lie comfortably and listen to the various sounds. The session ends with silence to allow the experience to become integrated - followed by a guided closing that allows you to return to the present moment.



Digital Sound Meditation

Imagine giving your eyes and mind a break, simply and gently. A virtual session is a great way to take a break from your home office, laptop or cell phone screen. 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.
