Sound Baths in the Woods will benefit the mind and body reducing stress and tension with the added benefit of being outdoors surrounded by trees and nature.

On arrival, you will be welcomed with a short introduction to the wood and then we will begin a gentle, mindful walk along the main track tuning into our senses, connect with nature

Once we reach the Sacred Sound covered space, all set up ready for you to just lay down and settle. You will be safely held by the Earth, ready to be immersed in the healing sounds of Gong, Hang Drum, Crystal & Tibetan Singing Bowls and Native Flute, ending with silence as we lay to absorb the nurturing energy and witness the beauty of nature in these serene surroundings.
