We have a wide range of instruments available. Depending on the space available and duration of the session we can bring a MINI SET with a few singing bowls, chimes and handpan drum.
Usually for a medium conference room and up to 20 people we bring MIDI SET of 8 singing bowls, chimes, hangdrum, rainstick, bells, drum, and 2 gongs.
MAXI SET with up to 12 singing bowls, large chime bells, and up to 6 gongs for larger conferances.
Cost will reflect the choice of instruments as it takes much longer to set up with more instruments and the session will have to involve two facilitatours.

Depending on the instruments required and our availability Sound Bath is done by one facilitatour or two.

Sound Bath online - Is it possible to have a good sound experience online?
During the lock down many sound practicioners started to introduce sound baths online. It took us many months to make sure that the recording equipment we have is at the highest quality and can provide the best experience for online participants.
Because gongs are a particular instruments it is important to have knowladge and training in recording such instruments.
We are working with the sound engineer and have developed the best way to provide such online sessions. Although it is a different experience than in the presence of those sounds it still can be an amazing one.
It is important to use a good quality speakers or headphones when you listen to it, as listening from the smartphone speaker or poor quality laptop speaker will effect the sound.
All you need to do is to find a quiet space and make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and enjoy the relaxing sounds.
After the session you can go straight to sleep or take your time in waking up your body slowly, and coming back to your daily activities gently and slowly.
You should not listen to those sessions while you are driving, as it may effect your concentration and it is not safe.
