Community Sound Meditation
monthly offerings in alameda and oakland
A sound meditation is a sound bath with emphasis on basic meditation principles. We understand that meditation can be a powerful tool for stress management, and is an important evidence-based element of the holistic treatment plan for a vast array of medical conditions. We also understand that many people find meditation intimidating, and are frustrated in their attempts to establish a regular practice.
A sound meditation is an excellent way to introduce or develop your meditation practice. The sounds of the bowls provide a sweet focal point for your mind, and most of our students report that the hour flies by effortlessly. And even if you don’t wish to participate in the meditation element of the sound bath, you will still enjoy all the relaxation benefit of this restorative session.
HOST A SOUND BATH IN YOUR HOME OR SPECIAL LOCATION
Looking for a unique way to celebrate a special occasion or get together with your friends, family or network? We love bringing our sound baths into private homes, businesses and public spaces in order to help our clients celebrate and give thanks for the milestones of their lives. This is a great way to commemorate the beginning of a new chapter, or simply to create a unique memory to mark the passage of time.
Blessing and celebrating the opening of a new business or moving into a new home
Milestone events such as birthdays, weddings, welcoming a baby, anniversaries, career change or promotion
Honoring and memorializing the passage of loved ones
Celebrating rites of passage for children (most appropriate for ages 8+)
The theme of the sound bath can be customized to fit your group and occasion, and we take pride in creating a special experience for you and your guests.
stress relief for the modern workplace
Coming from a healthcare background, we are well-versed in the chronic stressors of the workplace. The modern employer understands that providing access to simple stress management techniques, such as breathing exercises and meditation, can reduce absenteeism and increase productivity, creativity and job satisfaction. We are pleased to offer sound bath meditation services in the workplace as a single event or series.
We are also experienced professional ergonomic consultants, which means that we can offer a “one stop shop” experience for your employees that includes a mini-sound bath combined with group ergonomics training and/or individual assessment, customized to fit the needs of your business.
in-home sessions to spark joy
Just as your house needs regular housekeeping, it also needs to be cleared of all the emotional and energetic “messes” that can build up and make your home feel stagnant. Thanks to books and tv shows such as “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” Americans are becoming familiar with the idea that the home can have a personality and “spirit” of it’s own. Bringing the sound and vibrations of the bowls into your living space is an excellent way to increase your sense of comfort and connection to your surroundings, so that you can feel supported and inspired by your belongings.
This is a great regular practice, recommended annually as a form of home maintenance, or as needed to create a clean slate when moving into or out of a home, or to restore balance after a major trauma or upheaval.
