COCOON: AN ELEMENTAL SOUND BATH
Megan Marie Gates - TH6MMG
An intuitive, meditative journey through intentional soundscapes, Cocoon offers us space to discover the effect of sound as journey and meditation; moving into deep states with over-tone harmonics of the crystal singing bowls, elemental field recordings, drumming, chimes, song, and visualization. We begin with a brief introduction to sound meditation and its function on our body - mind systems before leaning into our experiential, sensory journey through sound and rest. Bring any props you'd like to get cozy with!
