Everything is vibrating all of the time. When our cells are vibrating in harmony with each other we are calm, clear headed, focused, peaceful, and healthy. When our body is vibrating in dis-harmony we feel anxious, short tempered, scattered, restless, and uncomfortable. If we remain in dis-harmony, a consequence of stress, it can compromise our digestive and immune systems, retention of information, and even our ability to engage in restorative sleep at night.
Instruments such as the gong and singing bowls are played with the intention of re-harmonizing the body and releasing stress. This occurs through a phenomenon known as entrainment through which our cells are brought into resonance with the precise and powerful vibrations of each instrument.
Receiving the benefits from an experience in sound requires no skills, abilities, or beliefs. Participants simply sit or lay near the instruments and allow the produced vibrations to bring their body back into a state of harmony.
