About the Event
75 min long sound relaxation/ passive meditation session in Galway.
As we look after our physical body we need to take care of our mind and heart as well.
Take time to reconnect with your inner wisdom and hit the pause button from time to time.
Sound Bath is an amazing opportunity to allow you to slow down your busy mind and relax your body. This is a place to connect with your heart, feelings, and needs, and check in with your body. We rarely have time to do this. Overloaded with deadlines, stress, and worrying about the future or rethinking past events.
Sounds produced by those special instruments help you to gently drift away into relaxation. Slowing down the activity of the brain, allowing for deep relaxation, creative thinking, rest, and evoking intuition. These instruments help to slow down your brain waves and stimulate the vagus nerve. This process allows for calming down the nervous system and allowing greater rest for the body and mind.
If you tried other relaxation techniques or meditation, and you have struggled to achieve a state of calm and mindfulness this session can help you to enter this state naturally and gently with a help of the sound. Meditation on the sound provides helpful anchor for us to concentrate on, yet it can also be used passively as a relaxation.
