Meditation & Sound Bath w/Barry RaccioUpcoming Sound Bath Meditation dates: Mar 6 | Apr 3 | May 8 | Jun 1
We invite you to stop, breathe and just relax at our soul-soothing gong meditation, an immersive healing experience brought to you with joy by yogi and certified KRI Kundalini instructor, Barry Raccio! Barry will guide you through a gentle, breath-centered meditation and mantra; then, you’ll recline on a mat comfortably supported by your own pillow and blanket, if you wish. Barry will then play a 32″ Paiste Symphonic Gong. The powerful vibrations of this gong bring healing to the physical body, clarity to the mind and an overall sense of well-being and connection to the soul. Those who have experienced this form of deep relaxation say that they feel the vibrations both on their bodies and within, and that they leave with a feeling of centerdness and peace. We encourage you to wear soft, comfortable clothing and bring your favorite blanket or pillow (a limited number of mats and blankets will be available in-studio for you to use). The gong that will be played starts softly and varies in volume, tone and rhythm to bring the full spectrum of alpha and theta brainwave relaxation. Sliding donation: $10-$20. Pay what you can. Water and snacks provided.

“Yoga works to unite you; it gives you energy so that you can be transformed. To bring you from unawareness to awareness is the purpose of Kundalini Yoga. Yoga does nothing more and nothing less.” — Yogi Bhajan All that is needed to combat the troubles of existance (ego, self-doubt, fear, etc.) is a foundation solidly grounded and rooted in awareness. This is not out of reach. Practicing the techniques of Kundalini Yoga will help you recognize and quiet the self-defeating chatter of the “monkey mind”. As you develop strength in both body and will, a new vision of yourself will emerge: A pure, clear realization of your authentic self. $20/person.
