Sound and Silence Meditation

"Tuning the mind, body, and soul"-Gaynor

The sound and silence meditation group meets every Sunday. The meditation begins with 30 min. of  toning*, 30 minutes of silent meditation, In the last 10 min. there is time for a brief discussion, questions, or sharing.


According to Gaynor (1999, p. [masked]), "Sounds enters the healing equation from several different directions: It may alter cellular functions through energetic effects; it may entrain biological systems to function more homeostatically; it may becalm the mind and therefore the body; or it may have emotional effects, which influence neurotransmitters and neuropeptides, which in turn help regulate the immune system-the healer within. Music is organized sound that has potent emotional effects and stimulates memories, associations, and highly developed  psychological states with clear impact on our healing systems."

 Toning* in your own voice is a very powerful tool for self-healing, relaxation, personal growth, opening creativity, and helping to balance life experiences.Toning is the elongation of a note or tone using breath and voice to assist you to get still enough to meditate.
It is great.....
• If you have a difficult time getting still enough to meditate;
• If you desire higher states of consciousness;
• If your communication energy center seems blocked;
• If you breathe too shallowly;
• If you need immediate grief or stress relief;
• If you're depressed;
• If you need more confidence or zest;
• If you have trouble listening, focusing or being in the moment

We look forward to seeing you at the next scheduled meet-up!Please e-mail me at [masked] if you have any questions or concerns.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
