About the event

What to expect

This workshop will offer you the opportunity to explore the deep meditative states and dream-like spaces which open to us when we are bathed in sound vibrations.

We'll sip on some uplifting cacao to transition out of our every day lives, and to dedicate some time to tuning into on our senses. The cacao itself improves blood circulation to the heart and brain, keeping us alert as we relax into the experience. A short guided meditation will provide the opportunity to reflect on the energies of the season and how these relate to our lives as they are currently unfolding.

Many people find that being immersed in the soundscapes created by the gongs, singing bowls and other percussive instruments helps to quieten the chatter of the mind so they can achieve deep states of rest. Some find that the brain enters a creative state where they gain new perspectives or find solutions; others find a meditative peacefulness.

Participants usually choose to lie down, but can also remain seated whilst they are bathed in sound vibrations. The space does not contain chairs but please do contact me if you think you may require one so that I can arrange this.

Venue: Naomi Swain massage space has a small step up to enter, then is level throughout. It's a cosy space with bolster cusions provided. Spaces will be limited to ensure optimal comfort for participants, so advance booking is highly recommended.

What to bring:

- Yoga/ camping mat or blanket to lie on.

- Blankets and warm layers as the body cools down quickly when lying in stillness

- A cushion or two for comfort (the studio provides blocks and bolsters)

- Plenty of water to stay hydrated

- An eye pillow or scarf to cover the eyes if this will bring you extra comfort

Supporter & Financial Assistance places.

The 'supporter' admission rate is for those who can afford to pay a little more, in order to help cover places for those not able to pay the full price.

Anyone who is experiencing financial hardship, and cannot afford the full price without foregoing daily essentials, is invited to get in touch with me regarding attendance at a rate they can afford (however little this may be). 

Contraindications for Cacao

I advise checking that drinking cacao isn’t contraindicated for any medications you may be taking (most common contraindication is with antidepressants), and remember that if for any reason you want less cacao (or to simply enjoy the sound bath alone), this is very welcome, too! For those who are unable to have the cacao, a rosehip tea (a herbal infusion also associated with the heart), can be substituted as long as I have some advance warning!

Cancellation policy

I am unable to offer refunds except by discretion, in exceptional circumstances. I am happy for anyone who is unable to attend to pass their place on to someone else.

If I have to cancel the event or reschedule, all participants will be refunded or offered a place at a future workshop.
