& Sonic Ceremonies
Allow the waves of sound to wash over you,
harmonizing your body, mind & spirit.
The power of sound to transform has been known through out time.
Sound can be used to create the Universe, as it did the big bang. And it can be used to destroy things, down to the smallest kidney stone.
The sound of music or song can change the mood in any space, whether that be dark and scary or bright and cheerful. The sound of rhythm can put you in a trance or wake you from rest.
All sound is vibration, and everything vibrates, down to the atoms that make up the cells of our body. Even the neurons firing in our brains that create our thoughts and emotions are vibrating.
Sound healing is the practice of using these concepts of vibrational transformation to effect the state of your mind, body and spirit. It can also transform the space you occupy, whether that be your home, work-space, an event or gathering space.
Some reported benefits of sound healing are:
– Reduced stress
– Improved mood
– Lower blood pressure
– Pain reduction
– Improved sleep
Listen to some of Nick’s sonic creations…
“Nick’s sound bath is an immersive and existential experience. Beautifully curated to guide you through welcoming thoughts, blissful moments and an overall relaxing environment. I wish I could have this reset with Nick every week!” – TM
What is a sound bath?
A sound bath is an immersive sound experience using a variety of instruments and sonic textures to take you on an inner journey. Many instruments create sounds that allow the mind to relax and unwind, with steady rhythms or drones. Other sounds are used to wake the mind and spirit, or perhaps loosen and release stuck energies.
Nick creates sound bath experiences on the basis of Nada Yoga. Nada Yoga is the process of the union of the individual mind with cosmic consciousness through the flow of sounds.
Moving into and through the process of a sound bath can create a wide range of internal experiences – pleasure, discomfort, bliss, sorrow, joy, or euphoria. Often people report visual imagery, like in a dream. All of these are OK and supported to increase awareness of the mind and spirit.
A sound bath is not a concert nor a performance of songs. It is an improvisational flow of the practitioner with the attendees.
“The sound bath was a therapeutic and emotional experience for me. I had a bit of a break through just about myself. I loved the intentions we set at the beginning. I felt the intention, plus the music guided me to new ideas. It was wonderful and I’ll be bringing my sister next time.” – KR
“Nick’s Deep Rest Sound Bath, on the cusp of winter Solstice, was indeed a journey into a restful state for me. I very much appreciated the opportunity to open up to the healing, restorative state induced by Nick’s sound bath. I had some visceral unexpected experiences during and after the event. Some of the bowl sounds elicited stimulation in my brain and body that was very soothing if unexpected, like a part of the body coming awake that I didn’t know was there. And then for many hours afterward, I noticed a heightened appreciation for perception of nature – my appreciation for the full moon, but also a desire for my connection to the natural world, my senses more in tune to it. Much appreciation for this experience.” – Kathleen S.
