Sound Meditation
Crystal Bowl Sound Meditation Class Welcome to the Crystal Bowl Sound Meditation Class. We meet on Thursday at The Wellswood Civic Center. This is an excellent opportunity to a have deep intrinsic meditation experience by simply listening to the sounds that are produced by the quartz crystal singing bowls. This is a meditation experience which utilizes the sound of crystal bowls to serve as the focal point of your way into relaxation, quieting the mind and letting go of stress. The use of sound is multidimensional, benefiting the mind, body, spirit and emotions. The Crystal Bowl Meditation surrounds you in this most unique sound. Crystal bowls sing you into a deep meditational experience. The whole person benefits, physically, emotionally, spiritually. Vibrational sound is a gentle way to experience meditation for those who are new to calming mind and body. Together, we practice an ancient form of balancing our lives. The sound and vibration will begin to clear out negativity from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual parts of us. The vibrations of these tones come in waves around you and through you - it's a very pleasant experience. The cells in our body will naturally want to entrain - or match up with - the frequency of the sounds that you are experiencing. This is how we are reset, lifted, restored to a better state of being. Musical frequencies have been proven by science to ease pain, harmonize brainwave activity, relieve stress, ease fatigue, and reduce anxiety. Listening to these crystal bowls has the immediate response of deep relaxation. Brain activity becomes harmonized through the act if listening. As you listen, you will become relaxed but remain alert. You can sit or lie down, be comfortable. These bowls will sound, cleansing the air, water and us on all levels - everything that will be within their vibration will be lifted. Our goal for these sessions is to enjoy a sound meditation which will relax, release and balance us.
