Saturday July 20 – Sound Bath at Inner Revolution Sound baths are meant to help facilitate a shift in your brainwave state. Through frequency and entrainment with sound it’s possible, and very easy, to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), with the majority of people able to reach theta (meditative state) and even delta (where internal healing can occur). This experience is helpful for anyone who wants to give themselves a moment of relaxation or gain the benefits from meditation.  The sounds are created by a wide range of instruments with different frequencies which will include crystal and tibetan singing bowls, various percussion, chimes, gongs, tingshaws and Rebecca’s voice.

  • 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
  • Inner Revolution Yoga Studio in Kanata
  • $40 (All Soul, Mind, Body Memberships get 10% off workshops)
