WHAT IS A SOUNDBATH?
DON'T WORRY, YOU WON'T GET WET.
A sound bath is a healing session you can experience fully-clothed, lying down in a comfortable resting pose in a dry, safe, and secure place. A sequence of quartz crystal singing bowls are played, each one keyed to the energy centers (chakras) of the body, where the sound nourishes the nervous system. The results are a deeply relaxed state of mind, body, and spirit.
How do these singing bowls affect our bodies so profoundly? Every part of our body, down to our cellular level, are crystalline in structure. This allows them to respond and resonate with the frequencies produced by the crystal singing bowls. Sound baths also act as a therapeutic gateway to your subconscious mind by allowing you to achieve and stimulate the Alpha and Theta brainwaves which are most commonly present during hypnosis, REM sleep, and deep meditation. Time is suspended as you enter a world of vibration, sensation, and experience. Physical injuries can be healed and old emotional traumas are released. You will feel nourished, alive, and vibrant after each session.
Sound can help facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by entrainment; synchronizing fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency to which the brainwave can attune. By using particular combinations of rhythms and frequencies, it is possible to shift our normal beta state (alert, concentrating, reacting) to alpha (creative, relaxed), and even theta (meditative state) and delta (deep sleep; where restoring and healing can occur). Using sound as therapy can provide results for a variety of issues including: sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress management, PTSD, pain management.
Sound baths boast multiple physiological benefits that are supported by science. These include: a slower pulse, a decreased heart rate, lower blood pressure, and deeper breathing, just to name a few. The sound vibrations also help move emotion, allowing you to purge grief, sadness, and anger in addition to physical pain. All together, these calming effects boost your immune system’s functioning, meaning that the benefits continue long after your sound bath session is over.
There’s no one reaction to a sound bath. During the process, you might feel vibrations, a sense of transcendence, sink into a meditative state, or experience an emotional release. You might cry. You might laugh. You might get irritated. You might fall sleep. Creative insights or solutions to problems might pop into your head during the sound bath. You may see colors or hallucinations. Some people report sensing, or communicating with, the spirit world, the unborn, or the dead. Whatever your experience is, it’s all good. Let your feelings arise and then let them go.
V(EYE)BES at The Mystic Rebel
453 S. Spring Street, Suite 641 on 6th Floor
Los Angeles, CA 90013
For those of you who don't live in DTLA we absolutely know how nerve wracking it can be to navigate. There is metered street parking on Spring Street and other streets nearby. There are also some lots and garages in the area. The best solution we have found so far is an app called Spot Hero. You can type in our address, find lots in the area with the best rate, pay with your credit card in the app and swipe the bar code when you arrive. We don't have any kind of deal with these guys, we just like the ease of it.
We are in the Spring Arts Building located above The Last Book Store. Let the doorman know you are there for class and take the elevator up to the 6th floor. Turn right off the elevators and we are the first door on your left. We look forward to seeing you!
We recommend you wear comfortable, stretchy clothing to this event. You may also want to bring/wear socks and a wrap, sweater or sweatshirt in case you get chilly.
Soundbaths are a great way to charge crystals, so feel free to bring any to set up around your resting area
If you’d like to journal or keep photos of loved ones nearby, you may also bring them with you.
This is a safe place for any emotions to arise within you. Feel free to express them without consequence as long as you are mindful of your neighbors’ safety and well-being. It’s natural for participants to cry, laugh, moan, and/or rejoice as stuck energy is released during this event.
If you’d like to go deeper within your meditation, bring along an eye pillow or scarf which will block most excess light.
Be respectful. Please do not talk to or touch your neighbors during the soundbath.
This event may fill up quickly. There is limited space and we suggest getting your tickets early before they sell out.
Please be mindful of any plant allergies you may have. We trust that you will be honest with us if you have any concerns. If you have questions, please email us.
Tickets are non-refundable for this event.
Doors open at 7:45pm and door will be locked at 8:05pm. As to not disturb the other participants, we will not allow for latecomers. Please allow ample time for parking and coming up to the 6th floor of the Spring Arts Building.
