I define sound baths as collective and individualsomatic listening events.
In this practice it's common that the facilitator of a sound bath uses a variety of instruments, usually including crystal or Tibetan sound bowls. The sounds and vibrations experienced in the sound bath can be understood as an event or journey where through which participants are led. Rather than being a performance to be spectated, sound baths can be understood as being events to be intimately witnessed and are therapeutic, spiritual, meditative, musical, or contemplative in nature. . . . . . . . . . . .
As I reflect upon what sound baths are to me I feel that to listen during a sound bath is to be touched. During a sound bath the listener is touched, held, and submerged in a bath of vibration. In some ways it can seem as if sound baths are extremely inaccessible but from my perspective, any moment where you are engaging with sound and vibration in an intimate manner can be considered a sound bath. The key aspect here is the act of listening paired with vulnerability and a sense of being receptive to allowing one's self to be touched by sound. I believe that sounds and vibration are powerful and I am committed to being a facilitator of this practice because I believe in the potential using sound baths to heal.
