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 10-15 min. there is an optional lie down and Alexander teachers put “hands on” with live music.


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.

    Hi Olivia, There is a love donation basket that funds the meetup website. (Some people feel inspired to leave a lot while others leave nothing at all; either way it is fine.)
    Hope to see you at one of our meditations!
    ;) Peace, K
