Just another FRAZZLED FRIDAY!!?? I’m excited and delighted to invite you to ‘breathe and bathe’ at another of my Sound Bath Evenings!

We enjoyed 6 fully-booked workshops in 2023 and 3 more fully-booked evenings so far this year and I can’t wait to share this energising and soothing ancient tradition with you again on FRIDAY 28th JUNE!!

When: Friday 28th June 2024 7-9pm

Where: Bru Columbanus, Wilton, Cork (nr CUH/ SMA / Wilton Bar).

Cost: ¢35pp includes herbal tea / decaf tea and organic, homemade scones with butter and jam! (I always like to combine Chi and Tea!!). 

NB. If you are Gluten Free pls let me know when booking and I’ll bring along suitable treats for you! 

What to bring: please bring the following if possible – NB. I will have a yoga mat for each of you but, as you’ll be lying down for approx 45 mins, for extra comfort I suggest bringing more padding to lie-on eg. yoga mat(s), camping “mattress”, garden-seat cover, as many blankets as you like etc! Plus a cushion/ pillow and water bottle. And please wear comfy, relaxed clothing. 

NB. Everyone is very welcome to attend but there are some cases where caution is advised. See bottom of the page for my advice. 

 

Introducing the Sound Bath Singing Bowl Experience! 

I have always had an avid interest in sound and how it works – particularly percussion instruments. Having practiced the ancient mindful-arts of Tai Chi and Chi Kung for around 15 years, I am fascinated by the effects of vibrational energy waves on our body, emotions and mind.  Having realised how complimentary sound-healing could be to my Tai Chi classes, during a recent visit to Nepal, I took the priceless opportunity to train in the use of Himalayan (often called Tibetan) singing bowls. 

The effects and sounds are simply magical and I had great fun playing the bowls during this professional course plus loved learning about their history, uses and benefits. I brought back some beautiful, perfectly tuned bowls – hand crafted near Kathmandu using 7-metals – and am so looking forward to sharing their soothing sounds with you! 

What to expect from our evening together………

These workshops are designed to enliven and de-clutter all of your your senses – touch, sight, sound, taste and smell – so you can receive the energising and healing sound-waves not only through your “ears” but via your whole system – inside and out!

  • A gentle warm up / Chi Kung exercises to release and quietly energise the body and mind
  • Mindfulness techniques such as Mindful walking
  • Guided meditation
  • Tea break with homemade, organic, raspberry scones, butter and jam!
  • Approx 45 minute sound bath – lying down with cosy mats, blankets and supports. In addition to the bowls, I also use a Brazilian rain-stick and a gorgeous gong for sound variety. NB. Lying down is recommended but if you wish to be seated for the Sound Bath this is absolutely fine! 

How does sound therapy work?

A Sound Bath is a therapy session where the sounds and resonance of the bowls and bells, along with the intention of the player, have strong therapeutic effects. When the sound begins you will listen as it fills the room and have a sense of time being suspended as you enter a world of vibration, soothing sensation and mindful experience!

All sounds – and infact all life – have an energetic, vibrational quality and certain natural sounds and notes can travel through the body and resonate with the organs, tissues, cells and chakras (energy centres) within it. There are also the positive effects of the melodies found in music and their ability to heal and uplift our emotions as well as bring deep relaxation, harmony and balance (also known as homeostasis) to our mind and body. The therapeutic effects can also bring about improved sleep, reduced stress, pain relief, release stuck energy and tension in the body and can even be a catalyst for personal transformation!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can anyone attend?

My sound baths are open to everyone, but there are a few situations where they might not be suitable and/or caution is advised.  They are:

  • If you have had metal plates fitted within the last 12 months, the sound can vibrate them, and this can feel uncomfortable – so wait 12 months please.
  • If you have a pacemaker fitted this event is not suitable for you.
  • If you are pregnant please wait until after the first trimester/ 3 months. There will also be some movements you should adapt – I can show you. 
  • If you have had any type of major surgery please wait 3 months.
  • If you have difficulty lying on the floor this event may not be suitable for you as it will not be comfortable / you may have difficulty getting up. However, you can always sit on a chair and still benefit from the sound. 
  • Sound healing can bring up emotions so if you are going through a very stressful or challenging time.

Do feel free to call me if you have any queries and would like to discuss the sessions – Michelle 086 878 5212
