Berkeley, CA: Sonic Wellbeing for all bodies and comfort levels

Mondays December 4 and 11 at 2:45 – 3:30 pm at Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline, Berkeley, CA

I am “out of tune” is a common expression used when we are stressed, anxious or have a physical illness. The immersive practice of therapeutic sound can help your body feel more “in tune”.

Sonic healing is a powerful relaxation experience. In the class, we will breath, hum, chant and meditate. The practitioner uses singing bowls, drums, and other resonant instruments to stimulate the vagus nerve, which then activates the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in a calming effect on the body.

Sonic healing can help you:
•    decrease stress
•    improve mental clarity and focus
•    release physical and/or emotional anxiety
•    find relief for sleeping issues
•    restore inner balance and harmony

This class is accessible for all bodies and comfort levels. Participants are welcome to lie down on a yoga mat or sit in a chair.  No previous experience required. NOTE: People in wheelchairs are also welcomed to these classes. The practitioner will accommodate the activities to everyone.

Please wear something warm and comfortable and bring a yoga mat, if you wish to lie down.

Register here (click “schedule” and look at the class on Monday) OR just come to the class.

San Rafael, CA: Sound healing for deep relaxation

Sunday December 10 at 3 – 4:30 pm, at a private residence in San Rafael, CA

SONY DSC

Using an Ancient tradition that is effective and proven to to reduce stress, create a deep sense of peace and well being using vibrational sound. Sound therapy is one of a growing number of subtle-energy therapies that make up the field of vibrational medicine.

According to the law of physics, everything vibrates, trees, the earth we walk on and the ocean. That sound is called resonance, the frequency at which an object naturally vibrates.

Each part of our bodies has it’s own natural resonance, and vibrational medicine that is based on the idea that disease is a result of those natural resonances getting out of tune. Weather due to stress, illness or environmental factors. Sound vibration acts as a carrier to teach the body and mind how a sense of wellbeing feels. As this memory is embodied it is easy to access it trough out our everyday lives.  You will leave rejuvenated with a deep sense of calm and well-being. 

This event is by invitation only. Contact Minna at minna@harmoniaalto.com
