The sound vibrations of the bowls will wash away any worries and concerns, leaving you feeling light, clear, peaceful, and refreshed.

Crystal Bowl & Didgeridoo Meditation Experience
Leave the world behind and flow like a theta wave… Quartz Crystal Bowl & Didgeridoo Meditation Experience Josh with his OM Didgeridoo, joins Bryan and his Quartz Crystal Bowls in a mystical tonal alchemy. This is a serious and powerful meditation that leads you through a journey into slower brainwave states infused with the tones of quartz crystal bowls, the hum of the Didgeridoo, and isochronic beats. Quartz crystal music holds the vibration of white light which ultimately refracts into the rainbow spectrum and acts directly on our chakras when the bowls are played.
Fee: $25

Yoga, Breath, and Sound
Treat yourself to a morning of deep relaxation. The stress and strain of life can lead to a buildup of tension that weighs us down and keeps our bodies and minds from functioning at optimal levels. This event will include gentle yoga and breathing exercises to open your body and mind. Let's release unnecessary tension, allowing your body to function in a more natural, relaxed state, enhancing its ability to heal. We will transition seamlessly from yoga into an extended lying-down sound relaxation/meditation accompanied by ancient Tibetan bowls. The sound vibrations of the bowls will wash away any worries and concerns, leaving you feeling light, clear, peaceful, and refreshed.
Bring yoga mat if you have one.
Fee: $30.
