If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the natural beauty of the desert’s great outdoors filled with good vibrations and sound, you can find peace and solitude at the Desert Night Experience – Sound Bath / Gong Bath, hosted by Sound Sanctuary.
Guests can also choose between two options: an outdoor Sound Bath with guided meditation or Overnight Camping with food, fire, breathwork and more.
Gong Bath is a sound immersion. It is an excellent therapy for stress-related issues, depression, fatigue, sleeping disorders, anger, feelings of fear, separation and loneliness, along with many other conditions related to the lack of balance and harmony in the body. Chimes are used for relaxation and healing sessions, meditation, music-therapy, perinatal care, as well as in educational work with children and adults.
Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul. Therapeutic singing bowls are bowls designed specifically for Vibrational Sound Therapy.
The event will start with a grounding guided meditation practice, followed by an hour and a half sound bath. Participants who buy Sound Bath tickets can stay and sit by the fire to share the experience, or are free to hit the road back at this point.
If you are staying for the Overnight Experience, there will be chats by the fire, and a homemade organic Vegan warm meal shared together. There will be a short break and a light stretch with breathwork for those who want to move a little. There will be no complicated poses, just sitting and relaxing practice with yin yoga elements. Participation is optional and you can enjoy being out in nature and watch shooting stars.
Another Gong Bath will be played and participants can fall asleep by the fire during the Sound Session or go to their tent after the Gong Bath is finished. 12 gongs will be played in total—with six big gongs, gong plates and smaller gongs, plus Himalayan singing bowls, flow chimes, wind chimes, drum, rattles, water rattles, shakers, wands, tuning forks, etc.
No experience is required when performing yin yoga elements with breathing exercises. It’s a slower and more meditative practice that gives you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. It helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.
It also calms and balances the mind and body, reduces stress and anxiety, releases fascia, encourages deeper relaxation, improves joint mobility, and brings balance to the organs through meridian stimulation.
