Slow the mind, feel the body
Sound healing has the power to raise your vibration.
In this mediation workshop, we place our emphasis on the healing effect of sound and chanting. As with all Meditation workshops, we begin with gentle stretching and breathing work and continue with quiet mindfulness mediation. In all of our workshops, we review the challenges of calming and stilling the mind. So a key focus is to develop and use tools to makes it easier to establish a consistent and persistent meditation practice. This workshop builds on the science of what happens in the brain when we get together as a group and chant: When we listen to music, almost all areas of the brain are active (compared to just doing physical exercise for example) and powerful physical and mental memories can be re-created, helping in treatment of Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. In our workshop, we will chant easy to learn Sanskrit terms (similar to the mantras we introduced in earlier workshops and just remember how powerful it was when we all chanted OM at the last workshop!). If you want a sneak preview of what kind of music you will be hearing and the context of chanting, click here and watch the trailer.
Entrainment is the practice that aims to synchronise two objects through sound. Christian Huygens, a Dutch physicist in the 17th century discovered the natural phenomenon called entrainment, where the higher vibration of one object changes the vibration of another object, causing the lower vibrating object to synchronise with the higher - in this case, the sound from the Tibetan Sound Bowls and the person.
Sound healing can assist in:
The physical effect of vibrations on the body:
- Deep relaxation and muscle regeneration
- Pain relief for joints, muscles, sciatica, the digestive system, headaches and migraines, spine injuries, shoulders, improved blood circulation
- Improved digestion
- Atoms, molecules, cells, tissues and organs function in a more synchronised way
- Better energy flow
- Elimination of toxins from the body
- Better immune system
Mental or emotional effect:
- Relaxed mind, mental/emotional tensions and blockages are eased
- Better concentration
- Inner feelings are activated and released
- More energy and strength in everyday life
- Alleviated mental or emotional pain
- Improved self-confidence, boosted creative and productive potential
- A positive feeling of self
- Better balance and harmony in your life
- Experiences of bliss
- Cleansing of chakras (energetic centres and the nadi – astral channels)
- A higher frequency reaches our innermost essence, which boosts our energy and our vibrational level
- The way to a more intense and higher vibration of love opens up
Scientific studies have proven that Tibetan singing bowls produce specific waves…
Scientific analyses of electromagnetic brainwaves have confirmed the existence of clearly recognisable waves, which are connected to different states of consciousness. It is known that the brain in its normal state, i.e. in everyday conscience, produces beta waves.
Alpha waves are present in the states of meditation and calm consciousness. Theta waves are typical for the state of slumber, whereas delta waves are present only during deep sleep. When the waves produced by singing bowls were recorded, scientists discovered wave patterns which were the same as the alpha waves produced by our brain. These waves give a feeling of deep relaxation.
