BEACON – A Sound Healing Feb. 11th 3-5pm At The Greenhouse – 65 St. James St.
BEACON is a sound offering of meditation and rest for bodies of culture. Wellness and rest are two facets that often elude our community due to the stressors that stand in the doorway of life. GWI offers this sound experience as a ray of light on the possibilities for us to find comfort, care, and a sense of belonging to self through our awareness and presence.
This sound healing utilizes recordings of our ancestors in the form Negro Spirituals that are interwoven with the sounds of gongs, bells, rattles, drums and other instruments.
“A sound bath is a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind and body.” -Sara Auster
Yoga mats, blankets, and bolsters will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring anything that will allow them additional comfort during the ceremony. Participants either lie down or sit comfortably while listening to the sounds of various instruments, like singing bowls, chimes, drums, and gongs. Think of this time as a way to become present, connect inward, and allow a beacon of light and care to shine on and through you.
