tara atwood JPG.png

Bathing in the space of sound brings us to a state of peacefulness where we can sense the feeling of our own body transform as the sound does it’s work. There is a sense of levitation, timelessness and bliss that can be experienced, along with a consciousness of detachment, compassion and peace. 

A powerful combination of aromatherapeutic oils, from organic brand Amber Blue’s Chakra Essence Aromatherapy line, will be diffused throughout the room to move and balance qi “energy flow” throughout the body. The therapeutic essential oils enhance the body’s innate healing capabilities and increases overall wellbeing. The diffusing of Aromatherapy oils relaxes the mind, body and spirit.

After the meditation and sound bath experience you will leave feeling more connected to all that is. Dress in warm comfortable clothing.

Attendees can purchase Amber Blue’s Syn·er·gy No. 7 Chakra Essence at the end of the meditation for at home use and to enhance their meditation and yoga practices.

TESTIMONIALS

"I wanted to personally thank you for the amazing experience I have had over the last 6 months. You and my fellow trainees have had such an impact on my life in a short period of time. I have learned so much from you and I will carry all of that knowledge with me everyday. Before I started training I had such a different outlook on life and was always wondering why nothing was working out the way I had hoped. Ever since our first weekend together training, my life has completely changed. (I know it sounds dramatic) BUT it is very true. Everything is finally coming together and I cannot thank you enough for giving me the skills I needed to make all of this happen. I am truly a better person because of this training and I am honored to have spent the last 6 months learning from someone who is such an inspiration to not only me but many other people. With all my heart,  thank you so much!"
