DURING PROFOUND PEACEFUL STATES OF THE MIND, WHICH ARE TYPICALLY ACHIEVED DURING MEDITATIVE PHASES, THE BODY’S NATURAL HEALING PROCESS IS PROFOUNDLY SUPPORTED.

 

There is a noticeable shift currently taking place in our culture. In these modern times of technology overload and a general sense of global fragility, the quest to quiet the mind and find new ways to achieve deep relaxation feels more important than ever. This quest has led us into a new era of wellness—one in which many people are exploring complementary and holistic practices that have been around for a very long time. The process of manipulating sound for well-being can be traced back to 550-500 BC and the Greek philosopher Pythagoras, who utilized sound as a form of medicine to treat a variety of ailments. Today, sound is used in yoga studios and meditation classes, hospitals, palliative care, cancer treatment centers, and therapy practices around the world.

Sound Meditation, or Sound Baths as they are frequently referred to, are highly meaningful and enriching solutions that allow us the opportunity to go inward on our own terms; to help combat the everyday stresses of modern life and support the overall health of the body, mind, and spirit. They are meant to help facilitate a shift in our brainwave state and can specifically entrain the human organism toward greater harmony and homeostasis (a state of equilibrium). A requirement for regenerating after experiencing periods of stress, injury, or illness. Sound and vibration can help restore regulatory function to a body that is out of tune and help maintain and enhance regulatory function to a body in tune. It can alter cellular functions through energetic effects or have deeply emotional effects which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides helping to regulate the immune system.

​Sound Meditation helps us calm and settle the mind with long deep breathing and intimate connection to sound establishing deep restoration and well-being. We relax, again, and again, learning the pathway of homecoming to the aliveness, openness, and mystery that is always here in this moment.

Gentle Earth private 1:1 Sound Meditation sessions are the perfect way to practice regular deep self-care. Recipients lie fully clothed on a well-appointed therapy table supported by comfortable bolsters and blankets. Each experience begins with a few minutes of introductory breathwork as we invite the body to establish a restful form that embodies aware relaxation. Participants are then led through a short guided meditation to prepare the body and mind for the unfolding of sound and vibration. The remainder of the experience is filled with different tones and frequencies being introduced in succession. A multitude of hand-selected therapy instruments are intuitively played and each session is tailored to the individual and is never duplicated. Please note that private individual sessions are for one guest only.
