Crystal Bowl Meditation

With Mary

Sunday, April 2nd, 6:00-7:30pm

The resonance of Crystal Singing Bowls create a harmonization between their vibration and that of the person listening or playing.The vibrations produced by crystal bowls can move and reshape atoms into a crystalline structure that is stronger, healthier and more balanced.
The sound of the bowls will impact the individual holistically by balancing the energetic body (chakras) as well as the auric field. Crystal bowl sounds activate the spinal cord which acts as a resonance vehicle, sending sound waves through the nervous system, cells, tissues and organs. The sounds can bring a person into alternate states of consciousness because of its effect on intraneural connections. Sound waves produced by the bowls also promote deep relaxation.

This particular set of bowls have been custom made to match the organic frequencies that are found in nature and the body. Come be held in love and light!

Cost: $30
