& Sonic Ceremonies
Allow the waves of sound
to wash over you,
harmonizing your body,
mind & spirit.
The power of sound to transform has been known through out time.
Sound can be used to create the Universe, as it did the big bang. And it can used to destroy things, down to the smallest kidney stone.
The sound of music or song can change the mood in any space, whether that be dark and scary or bright and cheerful. The sound of rhythm can put you in a trance or wake you from rest.
All sound is vibration, and everything vibrates, down to the atoms that make up the cells of your body. Even the neurons firing in our brains that create our thoughts and emotions are vibrating.
Sound healing is the practice of using these concepts of vibrational transformation to effect the state of your mind, body and heart. It can also transform the space you occupy, whether that be your home, work-space, an event or gathering space.
Some reported benefits of sound healing are:
- Reduced stress.
- Improved mood.
- Lower blood pressure.
- Pain reduction.
- Improved sleep.
What is a sound bath?
A sound bath is an immersive sound experience using a variety of instruments and sonic textures to take you on an inner journey. Many instruments create sounds that allow the mind to relax and unwind, with steady rhythms or drones. Other sounds are used to wake the mind and spirit, or perhaps loosen and release stuck energies.
Nick creates sound bath experiences on the basis of Nada Yoga. Nada Yoga is the process of the union of the individual mind with cosmic consciousness through the flow of sounds.
Moving into and through the process of a sound bath can create a wide range of internal experiences – pleasure, discomfort, bliss, sorrow, joy, or euphoria. Often people report visual imagery, like in a dream. All of these are OK and supported to increase awareness of the mind and spirit.
A sound bath is not a concert nor a performance of songs. It is an improvisational flow of the practitioner with the attendees.
