Mantra Meditation / Singing Circle and Sound Bath
We will begin with singing in circle, a selection of specially chosen mantras accompanied by the guitar, shruti & drum. We will have percussion in the centre for you to use if you so wish. Please note, there is no expectation to join in with the singing, although we’d love you to! We will all have our eyes closed and we encourage you to use the space to allow deeper connection to yourself. Whether that be picking up a rattle and shaking along and/or singing or just absorbing the vibrations, all is welcome.
You will receive a sheet with all the mantra words & meanings, as well as a herbal tea to keep you hydrated. After the singing, we will move into a soothing sound bath using different instruments including gongs & bowls. This will be a chance to integrate the vibrations from the song and move deeper into relaxation and healing.
Sound vibrations have the power to harmonise us through a process called entrainment. When we experience health issues, anxiety, depression, stress etc, be become out of alignment with our natural frequency. When sound is played at certain frequencies, it can cause our vibration to fall into sync with it, and can bring us back into alignment.
Just like Sound Therapy, chanting or singing mantras create vibrations.
The vibrations mantras create can:
- lower our brainwaves, help calm the mind chatter and help us to reach a higher state of awareness
- cause a release of chemical hormones that balance the body and have healing effects
- can help us release emotion through our self-expression
- bring us back into alignment with our natural state.
