Upcoming Group Soundbaths
Upcoming events are listed with a link through to book tickets via Eventbrite, unless bookable direct with the venue, to which you will be taken to their website.
The Sound Therapy Alchemist hosts regular Gong sound healing sessions in Harrogate, Leeds, York, Greetland (Halifax), Pontefract, Skipton and Birstall, as well as ad-hoc events elsewhere. You can also book me for retreat and private group events and I am also open to collaborations with other health & wellbeing practitioners. If I am not at a venue near you, or if you are the owner of a Yoga studio or similar type of venue and you would love to add to your offering by means of one off special events or a regular group soundbath session, then please do get in touch via the contact page.
The Soundbath Relaxation
Allow yourself to be still, as you drift off to the sounds of the instruments gently washing over you, like a 'sonic massage' in an immersive and deeply restorative Gong 'soundbath' experience, gently lulling you into a deep sense of relaxation, bringing peace, calm and tranquillity to self.
Deep relaxation is a vital part of looking after your health and wellbeing. It allows our bodies the time to rest, restore and re-balance. Using Sound as a means of deep relaxation is an excellent way to help restore the mind and body, similar to that achieved during meditation.
Sound can be a powerful & energising means of relaxation. The frequency, vibration and resonance of the sounds support and assist you, right down to a cellular level, to bring about balance and harmony to your physical body and energetic fields, calming the mind and inducing deep relaxation.
During the sessions, we begin with a gentle guided meditation, followed by the restorative sounds of the Himalayan singing bowls and the powerful resonance of the Gongs, as you are guided on a journey, along with other therapeutic instruments such as Crystal Singing Bowls, Hand Pan, Native Flutes, Shamanic Drum and Didgeridoo to bathe you in the deeply healing and restorative sounds, bringing the session to a close with a final guided meditation, as you are gently brought back into the space and surroundings, in total peace, calm and tranquility, taking all the time that you need to return to the space, while remaining in that blissful state of mind.
