Shalom will lead a gentle and therapeutic sound bath using quartz singing bowls, bamboo chimes, and other instruments creating a healing soundscape for you to enjoy.

These sound baths can help to release stress, lessen anxiety, and are helpful for aiding rest and rejuvenation. They are also a wonderful complementary healing modality to talk therapy, acupuncture, and other holistic practices.


Participants are welcome to sit in chairs, backjacks, or lie down (please bring a yoga mat and pillow).
