MIDWEEK MINDFULNESS- Sound Bath Meditation
MIDWEEK MINDFULNESS- Sound Bath MeditationJul 28 6:00 PM - 6:45 PM, 2021
Throughout life we encounter so many stressful situations that can affect us physically and emotionally. With vibrational sounds and mindfulness meditation practice we can help increase focus and reduce daily life stressors we face everyday.
With deep relaxation through soothing, resonant sound, the body is affected on a cellular level, opening up the flow of energy to move us back toward vibrational alignment with health. Sound can help us shift our energy frequency from lower to higher, removing the lower frequencies of emotions such as fear, anger, and resentment.
Hone in on your ability to focus. Allow a better connection between yourself and others.
Led by Jahlisa Forcheney of Urban Yoga.
All programming at the museum will be socially distant and all participants, including facilitators, will be masked.
Special mindfulness workshops – including dance/movement, visual art, and storytelling- that engage with these works in longer and richer ways are forthcoming.
