August ends with a Super New Moon in Virgo. And, this ain't no ordinary New Moon, first of all, it's SUPER which means the closest new moon of the year to the earth. And there are FIVE planets meeting up: Mercury, Venus, Mars, plus Sun & the Moon - all in Virgo and all in a realtively straight line.

Virgo energy is a detailed, purifying agent through examination, assessment, and a mental and physical housekeeping. In Sanskrit we call this idea: saucha or “cleanliness” or “purification”. With the meeting of opposites, Venus // Mars and Sun // Moon we can expect blending of polarities, joining together to create something entirely new or re-discover something that was lost or hidden.

This Virgonian Super New Moon acts as a filtering agent, asking us to go inward, reflect, and sift through what is working and what is not. It's a good time to mentally and physically regroup, re-organize, clean out the skeletons and shake out the rug.

As Summer comes toward a close, we can feel the energy shifting from playfulness toward a "back to school" mentality of gathering and getting things back into order. The natural shift of energies is heightened by this Moon making it a perfect time to rid yourself of excess, throw a Marie Kondo party this weekend, and cut loose what isn't working, no longer fits or no longer serves.

Jupiter is holding some boons for this time too, as it shifts into Sagittarius we move out of old beliefs and into a new period of action and applicaton. You may find yourself on a quest for personal growth, knowledge, freedom, adventure, and spiritual curiosity.

Let's be attentive, filter, and set a clean tone.

Filter. Cleanse. Reset.

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.

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.
