Mediation with Tibetan Bowls

Thursday, April 19th  7 p.m.-9 p.m.

Instructor: Henrietta Hammerlund

Cost: $25

Meditation with Tibetian Bowls

Henrietta takes you on a meditation journey by creating resonating, harmonic sounds using her singing bowls and gongs tuned with the moon & wind. These sounds create deep vibrations that encourage cells, organs, and systems to re-tune at their balanced frequencies. The harmonic vibrations flow to and through the chakras and within the points of the body where tension or injury memories may be stored. The sounds of these instruments provide a centering point of focus for our busy minds to find a natural state of peaceful relaxation.

Your part is natural and easy. Come and sit or lay out to allow the vibration to enter your being. Bring a blanket and floor mat to sit on.
