Event description


Let's get GONGTASTIC and let your inner werewolf out during this special celebration of Halloween with ALL EIGHT PLANETARY GONGS and a BRAND NEW surprise gong, who will be unveiled at this experience for the FIRST time.








Sound Creation

COSTUMES are ENCOURAGED! MEDITATE in your PAJAMAS or whatever you like.

This sound meditation will be a fun exploration of the gongs specifically, with different mallets and exciting experimentations. Gongs will be played to their fullest expression which can be intense for some (perhaps bring ear plugs if you are sensitive).

Expect your experience to match the sound journey and to be within a full range: exciting, intense, melodic,soothing, relaxing, dimensional, and full.

Halloween does have a spirtual signifigance which can be explored individually through sound. Historically, it is said this is a special time when the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead is believed to be the thinnest and encourages a healthy cycle of death and rebirth.

This experience could serve as a time to honor the little “deaths” experienced throughout the year- deaths of outdated parts of ourselves, losses of friendships or connections, loss of hope, grief and loss circle a much wider circumference then physical losses.

As the gongs are stretched into their fullest capacity, expect a deep cleanse of any residual little deaths accumulated throughout the year.

Parking is ample and this venue is handicap accesible. More info about sound meditations here.

Please Note:

***Space is limited and this will sell out, please buy your tickets ahead of time! Once a ticket is purchased there are NO REFUNDS but all tickets are transferable, feel free to give to a friend if you can't make it***

These sound experiences are created using high quality, meditative instruments and are focused on restoring the nervous system, therefore, each sound bath has a limited amount of participants to ensure each person has adequate space, sufficient props, and a distraction free environment.

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

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 four planetary gongs, quartz crystal bowls, melodic chimes, ocean drums, and other healing instruments.

Imagine feeling a clearer, lighter, and a ustaining calm for the remainder of your week and weekend. Most participants state they feel a dinstinct 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 erradicate a vicious cycle of anxiety and depression I experienced 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. 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, 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.

​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.
