A soothing soundscape using a variety of therapeutic sound healing instruments including ancient gongs, crystal bowls, and chimes to induce a deeply relaxed, meditative state. The session begins with a few minutes of guided deep breathing followed by thoughtfully orchestrated sounds that slowly emerge and immerse your senses in their healing vibration. The resonance of the instruments is holistic and not just an auditory experience, but penetrates through to the cellular level and can feel like receiving a sound massage. Most people experience deep states of relaxation while others may fall into a pseudo-sleep.
