Benefits of Breathwork & Sound Therapy
Unlike traditional meditation, which helps us become aware of what’s happening in our minds (which is also great btw!), both sound therapy and breathwork allow you to disconnect from your mind and instead reconnect with the sensations in your body.
It’s from this place of connection - to our deeper self - that we’re able to heal and grow.
While a sound journey and breathwork are two different practices, they provide several wonderful crossover benefits, to body, mind and soul, including:
Help with depression and anxiety
Improve pain management
Improve sleep quality
Lower blood pressure
Improve cardiovascular health
Clear and calm the mind
Help to find purpose
Create an overall sense of wellbeing
What are they all about?
A Sound Bath, Sound Meditation or Sound Journey is a sensory audio experience that is hard to describe in words. The sense of calm can be likened to many years of accumulated meditation practice - all at once entering your being. This feeling can remain with you for days or weeks in some instances.
To participate could not be easier. It takes very little effort on the part of the receiver. All that is required is for you to show up and lie down. A series of sounds from multiple large Healing Gongs, precious metal Himalayan Singing Bowls, Healing Drums & Percussion, Heart Warming Vocal Toning and magical Hand Pan, take you on a journey unlike any other.
While the term ‘breathwork’ has become a catch all for many forms of conscious breath practice,
the breathing at these events is 'technique agnostic' and are there to provide a deeply meditative experience.
We move through different breathwork techniques designed to activate both branches of the autonomic nervous system, incorporating everything from slow, rhythmic breathing to faster superventilation and explore with various breath retentions - from short to deeper.
Each event is unique and there is no previous experience required.
Sound Bath Meditation Events in Adelaide
Join myself and certified Sound Therapist, Chris Toms from Harmonic Essence, for an evening spent reconnecting back to your inborn spirit - of coming back to self - using breathwork and sound therapy.
We offer two different event styles:
: nū’mə : breath, spirit, soul.
We start the evening with a relaxing/rebalancing style guided breathwork session, accompanied by a variety of magical instruments. Following this we flow straight into a therapeutic Sound Journey for the meditation component.
: lɪbɛrɔ : to set free or release
This is a more activating/releasing style of breathing, in the spirit of rebirthing/holotropic/conscious connected breathwork, where we breathe for longer while continuously bathed in a soundscape of everything from electronic sounds to tribal drums.
Where to experience a breathwork and sound bath
You can find Sound Therapist Chris Toms & myself at our regular monthly event, Pneuma, and several times a year at the partner event Pneuma: Libero. These events sell out quickly, so find when the next event is and we look forward to seeing you there.
