Event description


Hitch a ride with Inner Sounds as we debut in Walnut Creek with an epic Cosmic Sound Bath in a beautiful lakeside venue!!

  • Enjoy Planetary Tuned Gongs, Quartz Crystal Bowls, and Special Cosmic Instruments
  • Meditate on the Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything!!
  • Dress up as your favorite Alien, Hitchhiker, or Cosmic Constellation (or just your most comfy outfit)
  • Eat cake!

A long, long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, called Santa Clara, Melissa was born. This special sound bath hallmarks the 42nd time the earth rotated around the sun in Melissa's lifetime. Tonight we will get wild, have fun, become galactic hitchhikers and enjoy a celebratory sound bath.

Friends, first time sound bathers, aliens, and stranger things are all welcome!

Douglas Adams has bamboozled the entire universe when he emphatically wrote in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, "The answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything - is 42."


Tonight we will finally unravel the secret meaning of this sentence...putting to rest years of suspicion and massive efforts trying to ascribe a deep, symbolic significance to this special number.

Does 108 divide evenly by 42? NO.

Is 42 divisible by two prime numbers? Yes. If 1 is counted as a prime, which it isn't. Damn. Then No.

On page 42 of the first Harry Potter book does Harry realize he is a wizard? YES!

Does one big mac have 42% of your daily salt content? YES!

Coincidences? No!


This sound bath will be a celestial exploration of sound with some new, unlikely encounters of the sound kind, as we go where no sound bath has ventured to go before- Walnut Creek!

Whether you are brand new to sound or have been to many before, all are welcome in this fun celebration.

**Space costumes, Pajamas, and Hitchhikers encouraged!** Lakeside is a gorgeous space

Let's eat birthday cake, contemplate the universe, and bask in the answer to everything.

Please Note:

***Space is limited and each sound bath sells out, so please buy your tickets ahead of time. Once a ticket is purchased there are NO REFUNDS but all event tickets are transferable, gift it to a friend if you can't make it***

**Appropriate for ages 18 and up

Parking is ample and this venue is wheelchair accessible. More details to come with confirmation of registration.

Meditate with ease, feel a deep sense of an inner calm and become present to your inner self while being immersed in healing frequencies and washes of cleansing overtones of 4-7 planetary gongs, quartz crystal bowls, melodic chimes, ocean drums, and other healing instruments.

Have trouble meditating? Not any more. Try this out and experience it for yourself.

Inner Sounds Meditation's sound experiences are focused on restoring the nervous system, therefore, each sound bath has a limited amount of participants to ensure each person has adequate space and a distraction free environment. Learn more about sound meditations here.

No yoga is practiced, simply lie down (or sit) comfortably and listen to live sounds. Open to all ages 18 and up.

Imagine feeling a clearer, lighter, and a sustaining calm for the remainder of your week and weekend. Most participants state they feel a distinct sense of calm for several days following a sound meditation and also sleep soundly for several nights.

My Story

I used sound as therapy to eradicate a vicious cycle of anxiety and depression I experienced after my father fell severely mentally ill. Through utilizing sound as therapy, I was able to retrain my body and mind to rest and create new space to metabolize the traumatic experience of losing my father. Learn more about my story here.

What happens at a sound meditation / sound bath? Learn more here

A sound meditation "bath" is an immersive live sound performance with specially tuned high-quality instruments that can lead to deeply meditative, difficult to reach Theta brainwave states, typically reserved for students with ten years of meditation practice. During the theta brainwave state, expect to feel a spacious and calm mind, relaxed body, and an ability to enter an innerscape that can lead to heightened intuition, insight, self-discovery, emotional release, and a distinct sense of wholeness.

Melissa's sound meditation baths are focused on restoring the nervous system through deep relaxation. Therefore, each sound bath has a limited amount of participants to ensure each person has adequate space, sufficient props, and a distraction free environment.

  • Most participants choose to lay down down but it can be experienced seated. No yoga is practiced.

  • Your attire will not impact your sound meditation experience but comfortable clothes can enhance your ability to relax.

  • After a short welcome and explanation of how you may feel during a sound bath, Melissa will use her restorative expertise to skillfully guide you in setting yourself up comfortably while lying down so you can have the best experience possible.

  • You will then deeply relax in an immersive environment of live sound and vibration played by Melissa with specially tuned gongs, chimes, and quartz crystal singing bowls for about sixty minutes.

  • Then, you will be slowly guided up to a comfortable seat for a closing silent meditation. Total experience is around 90 minutes.

​Participants have often reported experiencing colorful visuals, emotional release, muscular tension relief, mood elevation, and a deep inner calm. Many enter meditative states and receive transformative insight.

Sound therapy is highly effective at providing relief for chronic pain, digestive issues, insomnia, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disorders, heart's disease, trauma, depression, fertility issues, anxiety and cancer treatment therapies.
