Sundays are for Soundbaths!
This and every Sunday join us as we raise the vibration on a healing sound journey… experience total relaxation, release stress and restore your mind, body and spirit.
Everything is energy. Spirit meets science in this unique and profound frequency journey, harmonized and guided by the gifted Torkom Ji.
A soundbath is a form of sound-guided meditation and relaxation induced by different instruments tuned to powerful, healing frequencies such as 432HZ.
We encourage you to bring something to lie down on and be comfortable: a mat, a blanket, a pillow, comfy clothes, and an open heart are all suggested.
