Sound Bath with Susy Markoe Schieffelin

June 23, 8-9pm

Join Christ Church Books & Gifts on Saturday, June 23rd for a very special meditative experience!

Lie back, relax, and experience a new level of serenity as you embark on a Sound Meditation Journey led by Sound Healer/Reiki Master Susy Markoe Schieffelin. Before long, you’ll find yourself floating in a state of deep relaxation as your tension and stress melts away.

Based on ancient healing techniques, vibrations of sound work on a cellular level to recalibrate the mind, body, and spirit. These healing frequencies stimulate alpha and theta brain wave frequencies, balance the hemispheres of the brain, and promote deep rest and relaxation.

In addition to relief from chronic pain and migraines, benefits of a Sound Bath include improved sleep, reduction of stress and anxiety, as well as a renewed sense of well-being, calm, and happiness. A Sound Bath is like a deep tissue massage for your mind, body, and spirit!

 

**Please bring a yoga mat, pillow, blanket, and anything else you might need to lie comfortably on the floor** Learn more about Sound Baths and connect with Susy on Instagram @thecoppervessel or visit www.thecoppervessel.com
