Description

The Inner Sounds Oasis Series are extended sound meditations designed to create the deepest relaxation possible through an intimate experience within an immersive sound field in acoustically designed spaces.

Replenish your energies, feel a deep sense of an inner calm and restore your nervous system organically with zero side effects while being immersed in healing frequencies and washes of cleansing overtones of FOUR planetary gongs, quartz crystal bowls, melodic chimes, ocean drums, and other healing instruments.

Simply lie down (or sit) comfortably and receive sound, no yoga is practiced.

These sound meditation events 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.

My story- I used sound as therapy to erradicate myself of a vicious cycle of anxiety and depression after my father fell severely mentall 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. Over time, my nervous system restored itself, I slept better, my jaw tension relaxed, my migraines were relieved, I could eat again, and I naturally felt happier. Eventually, I felt compelled to share this type of therapy with others and became a self-taught practitioner. 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. This coveted brainwave state is accessed naturally and instaneously as the soundwaves "entrain" or synchronize with your brainwaves. 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, emotioanl 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.

  • The combination of instruments creates a unique experience each time. For some, it is a live symphony of sounds while for others, it is a healing and therapeutic experience.

  • 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.

  • Some participants fall asleep, do not concern yourself if this happens, this is natural and can repair your sleep cycle. Research suggests that one sound bath can be the equivalent of eight hours of sleep.

  • As your body enters such a restful state, sometimes it can be helpful to hydrate with water, please bring a water bottle.

  • Some choose to continue their relaxation at home by being tech-free and having a quiet night in.

  • Another added benefit is that participants frequently report having a deeply restful nights sleep following the sound bath.

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.
