You are invited to a community sound healing where we will tune into the energy of the Full Moon. We are water. Just like the water that surrounds Bainbridge Island, our physical bodies -approximately 60% water- are impacted by the tides, especially by the Full Moon and New Moon extreme tides. Cozy up in-studio at Dayaalu or join us from home. Through gently guided breathwork, reconnect with your physical senses and your heart. Feel the ebb and flow of the tides dramatically impacted by the full moon. In the cycle of the moon, the full moon invites us to let go of whatever no longer serves us. Allow the sounds of alchemy crystal singing bowls to carry you into a deep practice of restorative rest. Gentle attention will be given to the heart chakra of each person to support your connection to the element of water. Sound helps the mind to settle, can support the brain in entering a peaceful theta state (or pre-sleep), and engages the parasympathetic nervous system to let the body relax and access the full benefits of rest. The vibration/energy of alchemy quartz crystal singing bowls can be impactful physically on the mind/body, as well as energetically on the subtle energy bodies. Please remember to drink water after this cleansing event. Please Note: sound healing should never cause any kind of physical pain. If you experience physical discomfort--for any reason--please listen and be kind to your body by removing yourself from the in-person or virtual experience.
