Sound Bathing

Instructor | Connie Maggie, Sacred Valley Healing Arts

Tuesdays | April 13 | May 11 | June 8

Join Sound Healer and Yoga & Meditation Teacher Connie Magee for an etheric journey in the woods. Trees provide healing medicine for the soul, and the otherworldly tones of two large gongs and chimes provide a magical soundscape that dances within the sounds of nature. Find a comfortable spot on your yoga mat or lawn chair, settle into a guided mind-body meditation, and drift away. You'll notice the birds and woodland creatures connecting to the vibrations, and you will deeply relax and tune in simultaneously.

Please meet Connie on the Ernst Tree Terrace adjacent to the Frances Plecker Education Center.
