Teletextile Sound Bath                                    





Teletextile presents a sound bath experience led by Pamela Martinez and collaborator Alex Beckman. Be lulled into deep relaxation using the sounds of singing bowls, gong, harmonium, vocals, and other sound sources to provide you with a meditative and healing environment. Lay down and enjoy. These Sonic Meditations provide a way in for deep vibrational healing of the mind, body and spirit.


Sound Bath Benefits:
The body needs time to relax and rejuvenate. Research has confirmed that even listening to certain music can effectively and rapidly elicit the relaxation response and bring about chemical, hormonal, and cellular change that actively promotes healing. When our parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated [via our vagus nerve] by soothing sounds, we are sending a message of calm and relaxation to every part of our body. So when we say that something is “music to our ears,” it’s actually so much more. It’s a massage for every organ in the body. (Silvia Nakkach, Free Your Voice)

Sound Healing Meditation w/ Jaquí Rodriguez @ Flower Power Coffee House nyc August 23rd 2018 @ Flower Power Coffee House Nyc
Aug 23 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

 

Take a break from the hustle & bustle and join us for a powerful healing meditation, infused with sound, energy healing and CBD tea samples.

Meditation is something everyone can do to improve their mental and emotional health. Thousands of scientic studies prove the multitude of benefits it creates. Meditation eases symptoms of anxiety, depression. It reduces stress, blood pressure, pain and so much more.

Sound has been a tool for promoting the physical and emotional health of the body for as long as history can account for, deeply rooted in ancient cultures and civilizations.

Tibetan Singing Bowls are an ancient technology about 2500 years old, for stimulating our brainwaves. Just like the new technologies of Brainwave Entrainment, Binaural Beats & Isochronic Tones, Tibetan Singing Bowls create a pulsation of sound to entrain our brain.

It is believed that our bodies contain ‘energy frequencies’ and that sonic frequencies can be used to reattune these energies when they are off balance. Sound can release blocked emotions and recallibrate us at a cellular level.

Tibetan Singing Bowls don’t only affect a great deal of physical healing but also have far-reaching implications that occur on emotional and spiritual levels. It is a regenerative process combined with a spiritual awakening that can have profound consequences on illness, disease, and all aspects of our lives.

Reiki is a healing technique where the practicioner places their hands lightly on or just above a person to channel energy to facilitate the persons healing response Energy healing aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks.

CBD has many health benefits including relieving pain, reducing anxiety & depression, relief of ADHD symptoms, cancer related symptoms and more.

Any conflict can be dissolved through sound or music, as from sound and music comes Harmony. The balance of mind, body and spirit depends on whether we can create these energies of harmony or not.”
Fabien Maman

 

“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being,then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
The Healing Power of Sound”, Dr Mitchell Gaynor

“Sound is a carrier wave of Consciousness”
(Steven Halpern, Ph.D.).
