the MOLTEN LAVA of PELE

IN THE WAKE OF THE DEVASTATION OF PELE in Hawaii the Earth is being destroyed while simultaneously being re-created. Only what is stronger will eventually grow back up thought the lava as it kills everything it comes in contact with. As with each of us, when there is devastation, we need to reach deep within and pull up that which is stronger to overcome.
Tonight we re-seed our internal / external forest so that our world grows back through the trials upheaval, finding new strength below.

We bring sound, & ceremony and exercises to re-create our world, mourn the old and plant the new. We will clear outworn patterns. Sounds of the Volcano will journey with us.

About the Sound Bath

The term Sound Bath was first coined a few years back by musicians or possibly sound healers who took instruments and immersed the audience in this sound for relaxation and stress relief.

It was found that specific instruments coupled with energetic medicine knowledge created conducive vibrations to provide ease of tension and deep relaxation. Deep relaxation is a per-cursor to health and healing and allows the individual to release patterns of tension, trauma and stress that create illness.

Science has long known about brainwaves—patterns of electrical activity generated by the billions of neural cells in the human brain. Different levels of consciousness generate brainwaves at specific frequencies. More recent discoveries have shown that when people listen to sound vibrations and rhythmic sounds matched to a particular frequency, their brainwaves begin exhibiting the same frequency. This process is called “brain entrainment,” and it’s how we harnesses the power of the mind to help heal the body.

The idea that sound affects the health of the mind and body is not new. Chanting and mantra recitation have been part of Hindu spirituality and the healing power of yoga for thousands of years. Given the recent interest in mind-body medicine, it’s not surprising that this ancient tradition is experiencing a modern-day renaissance.

Here are some of the many benefits of Therapeutic Sound.

Promotes inner Stillness
Relieves Anxiety and Stress

Promotes Profound Meditation
Increases blood flow and Circulation
