Tibetan Sound Healing

Sunday, Oct 16 at 8pm – Caledonia

Sunday, November 6 at 7:30pm – Grandville

Join Kevin Leep for an experience in sound. Tibetan Sound Healing is an expression of sacred sound, which is constructed of sound frequencies, harmonics, and overtones. Sound healing uses patterns of sound to realign our energy to its true nature. By simply relaxing and allowing the sound to wash through us, bathing us in healthful frequencies, we have the capability to “realign” on cellular levels. This positive realignment may then manifest through us in all dimensions — physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. The Earth Gong and Tibetan Singing Bowls, along with many other analog sound tools, are incredibly efficient at re-patterning us this way. Students typically lay comfortably on the floor in savasana, but a favorite meditation seat or gentle yoga poses are welcomed. Cost is $30. Annual members receive 20% off. “The Twisted” Members receive 15% off. Monthly Members receive 10% off. 

Students are encouraged to:
Wear comfortable clothing
Bring yoga props (bolsters/blankets/towels) anything for comfort and support
Avoid eating a heavy meal ~2 hrs prior
Be well hydrated
