About the event

 Sound, Meditation, Visualisation, free writing & drawing, relaxation 

and a day to switch off from the outside! 

This full day of retreating within is going to be a wholesome day of rejuvenation and a chance to forget the busy lifestyle and be with yourself for a day.   

The day will begin with a check-in, you are welcome to bring an item that represents where you are in life right now, or something important to you.  Moving slowly into mediation to help you arrive into a relaxing state that will lead into a wonderful sound bath.  We will then have a shared lunch, time to chat and meet the other people attending the day.  After lunch, we start with some relaxing movement and step into a visualisation with sound accompanied by the amazing Gong. Following this without interruption you are free to either write about your visual experience or use the pastels and pens supplied to sketch on an art pad.  These are for you to keep as a reminder of what you saw, felt, or remember.   You will not need any creative or writing skills for this exercise, there will certainly be no judgment of what you draw or write, and the piece is just for you to either use as understanding or to simply remember your day's retreat.  

There will be refreshment breaks included, and the shared lunch will be vegetarian 

The relaxing experience is fully supported by the sounds from healing instruments such as Crystal Bowls, Chimes, Singing Bowls, and 2 Gongs. Each element of the time shared with sound will direct its self to meet your own personal needs, making it a totally unique and deeply healing experience just for you. 

Sound healing and meditation combined are a natural, soothing way to bring clarity and rejuvenation to the body. This therapy aligns brainwaves into a frequency that allows your body to enter into a state of calm, leaving you feeling refreshed and rebalanced. The sound vibrations are made by using healing instruments that each individually produce pure sounds, each reacting in a positive way with your body and supporting your mind to find a place of deep relaxation that then allows your body to become fully rested.  The human body has about 70% of water, every cell in our body responds to sound, if you imagine throwing a pebble into a lake and watching the ripples move through the water, this is the effect the vibrations of sound will have on the inside of your body, It has been described by others as a cleansing inner massage. 

Sound therapy is a complementary medicine, the therapeutic experience supports symptoms of insomnia, digestive problems, pain relief, tension headaches, releases toxins and blockages from the body, helps to regulate blood pressure,  reduce negative behaviours, and rebalances the energy system, and moves you from feeling stress and tension to relaxation. 

Class numbers are limited so you have space, so booking your sacred space is essential. Please bring along anything that will help you feel comfortable, a mat, a pillow, and a blanket are your essential items! If you prefer to sit you are also welcome to bring along a folding chair you prefer to use.  

You will find free parking in a car park and we are the only people in the building making it a perfect quiet space to use. 

Please bring your own mat, cushion, and blankets, and a drink - bring along anything that will make you feel more relaxed and comfy! Some people even bring a lilo and sleeping bag!
