Friday Jan 24 – Crystal Bowl Sound Bath Meditation at Younion  Be lulled into deep relaxation using the sounds of singing bowls to provide you with a meditative and healing environment. Simply lay down and enjoy. These meditations provide a way in for deep vibrational healing of the mind, body and spirit.   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.  Tickets do not last long and space is limited, so be sure to grab a friend and join us for an evening of deep relaxation and healing.  Please arrive 15 minutes early.

Tuesday Feb 11 – Sound Therapy & Reiki Massage We welcome Rebecca White Raven to our studio bringing her collection of crystal bowls and so many other beautiful instruments for a deeply relaxing and energy shifting experience.
A crystal sound bath is meant to facilitate a shift in brainwave state. Using the vibration and frequency of sound, we can start to shift our brainwaves from beta – normal waking consciousness, to alpha – relaxed consciousness, with many people able to reach theta – meditative state and the possibility of delta – internal healing occurs here! This experience will induce relaxation, allowing stress to fall away and experience the benefits of meditation.
While you drop into the energy of the sound bath, Jen will offer a blend of Reiki and light touch massage and essential oils to points on the head, face and scalp facilitating the shift to offer a grounding experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with this unique combination of healing touch and sound.
Limited to 8 spaces.

  • 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
  • Lunar Fusion in Richmond
  • Cost: $48.67 + tax ($55)
  • register at lunarfusion.ca
  • Yoga mats, blankets and pillows are provided.

Friday Feb 14 – Gong Meditation at Younion Sound is one of the oldest and most natural forms of relaxation and healing, documented and practiced in ancient civilizations, tribes and clinics around the world for over 40,000 years. Gongs, in particular, with their wide range of frequencies, tones and harmonies, are one of the most powerful healing instruments. The sounds and vibrations in a Gong Bath lower your brainwaves, inducing a state of deep meditation and relaxation (alpha). The benefits of Gong Baths include (also known as ‘sound meditation’ or ‘sound healing’):

  • A state of deep relaxation, to calm the mind and release tension
  • Decreased stress and anxiety levels
  • Improved sleep
  • Increased clarity of mind, awareness and insight
  • Reactivation of dis-eased cells and parts of the body
  • Quicker recovery from illnesses, wounds, and invasive medical treatments
  • Enhanced concentration and creativity
  • Removal of blocks and toxins
  • Improved sense of hearing
  • Awakening to higher states of consciousness, and a deeper connection with your true self

Join the incredible Rebecca White Raven for a Gong Bath to clear away stagnant energies and rejuvenate your system and merge with the sacred sounds of the magnificent Gongs.
Sound Baths are always in high demand and do fill quickly!
