A monthly fusion of sound enhanced Yoga Nidra that flows into a healing frequency Soundbath. Monthly since May 2022.
Yoga Nidra as a practice explores and utilizes the rich realms of awareness in between waking and sleeping. The practice consists of a series of simple guided meditations usually done in a comfortable supine posture. Yoga Nidra is simultaneously relaxing and enlivening; it leads to greater self understanding and receptivity. The relaxing nature of the practice is extremely beneficial for our nervous system and heals many of the effects of stress on the mind/body. This includes improving digestion, increasing the ease and quality of sleep, improving mental clarity and performance, and easing our ability to share and participate in the world around us.
Sound healing, or soundbathing invites a sacred space for replenishment , relaxation & vibrational re- attunement. We might investigate layers of The physical & subtle body, the mind & soul as we ride the sacred frequencies of Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls, chimes, bells, rain sticks, tuning forks, frame drum, Handpan, monochord, the voice & gong & other instruments .
The collaboration that is Sonic Dream utilizes the coherent structure of a poetically themed Yoga Nidra practice punctuated with live instrumentation. These themed recurring monthly events are an exploration of how these practices interweave.
