"New Moon: Scent + Sound Bath"

Harness the power of the full moon with this ‘New Moon Scent + Sound Bath’ meditation. When the moon takes a hiatus in our night sky, the evening becomes a dark shadow missing the moon's magical gleam, however, the absence of the moon allows the stars to shine through the darkness much brighter.

During the new moon, the Earth, our sun, and the moon are all perfectly in line, the tides are at their highest and their lowest during this lunar cycle. The new moon is a defining phase of the lunar cycle and even water (the element that governs our emotions) is transformed by its energy.

The new moon signifies the beginning; a birth. Each lunar cycle, we are reincarnated. Our spirits are filled with strength, ideas, power, and courage as the full moon builds and then as it dissipates, we are relieved of that power. During a new moon we think deeply on our decisions, experiences, and rejuvenate ourselves so that we can start all over again. The new moon is symbolic of the second chance we are given over and over again; a clean slate. This is why the new moon is the perfect time to meditate, journal, organize, and plan our next move. The new moon's purifying energy is there to aid us in our reflection.

In this ‘New Moon Scent + Sound Bath’, you will write down your intentions for the upcoming month and ask the universe for assistance in realizing them. New Moons are a blank page on which to speak your dreams out loud. This event is a perfect time to reflect on setting and implementing our new intentions and releasing what no longer serves us. Consider what you need to leave behind and what you want to bring into your life in the next 30 days. We will release stagnant energy, awaken dormant energy and shine brightly into the fullness of our new moon phase.

The aromatherapy meditation and sound bath is a unique experience releasing the Past, connecting all of us to our Now and renewing our own inner light for the Future.

Bathing in the space of sound brings us to a state of peacefulness where we can sense the feeling of our own body transform as the sound does it’s work. There is a sense of levitation, timelessness and bliss that can be experienced, along with a consciousness of detachment, compassion and peace.

A powerful combination of aromatherapeutic oils, from organic brand Amber Blue’s Chakra Essence Aromatherapy line, will be diffused throughout the room to move and balance qi “energy flow” throughout the body. The therapeutic essential oils enhance the body’s innate healing capabilities and increases overall wellbeing. The diffusing of Aromatherapy oils relaxes the mind, body and spirit.

After the meditation and sound bath experience you will leave feeling more connected to all that is. Dress in warm comfortable clothing.

Attendees can purchase Amber Blue’s Syn·er·gy No. 7 Chakra Essence at the end of the meditation for at home use and to enhance their meditation and yoga practices.

SOUND BATH

Reduce stress, enjoy deep peacefulness and enter into relaxation and meditation with this unique Sound Bath Session with International Sound Therapist, Tara. During the Sound Bath session, the room will be surrounded with Tibetan & Crystal bowls. Will include active and passive meditation techniques and a Sound Bath, where you will be fully emerged in the vibration and frequencies of sound.

SOUND THERAPY

This ancient wellness practice of sound healing is a 2,000 year old Tibetan practice that induces a deep state of meditation and relaxation. The primary bowls, Tibetan bowls, are sound instruments that have sonic frequency technologies that encourage meditation, stress release and relaxation. The transcendental tones of the vintage Tibetan singing bowls, along side the Crystal bowls, emit a diverse set of sound frequencies, creating a range of sounds to restore normal vibratory frequencies from out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul. The unique tones blended together create a Bath of sounds that in effect induce a state of deep meditation, creative thinking and intuitive messages, and encourages stress release and deep relaxation.

What to expect during the Sound Bath:

During the Sound Bath session, Tara will surround the room with bowls. She will lead the session with active and passive meditation techniques prior to the Sound Bath. The Sound Bath will be 30-40 minutes of sounds as the guests lay in sleeping position.

Benefits of the Sound Bath:

  • Each bowl has a unique frequency, sound and tone that corresponds to the frequencies within the body offering healing vibrations that restore the body to a natural state of balance.

  • The vibrations of the bowls initiates the entrainment or movement of our brainwaves to synchronize with the bowls, improving brain wave frequencies. The vibratory frequencies create deep meditation, enhance intuitive abilities and creative thinking.

  • The brain waves, during this session, switch from Beta waves (normal waking state) to Alpha and Theta waves (a deep meditative state).

  • Sound waves stimulate our immune response, reduce stress, harmonize the body’s cells, balance the body’s energy systems, and calm our emotions reducing stress and increasing a meditative state of well-being.

  • The sounds from the bowls help with body pain and is a powerful to for anyone suffering from chronic pain and illness such as cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation.

  • Sound bowls increase a deep sense of peace, hope and well-being, reduce stress and decrease pain. Sessions also are effective for people suffering from depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, insomnia and memory loss.


“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”


- Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine, the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York City
