***Re: Wednesday Sound Bath:
The Upper Room is kicking off the Holy Week Tridium on Wednesday night, April 13th at 6 pm with a special meditation, a Sound Bath. A sound bath is a relaxation technique and meditative experience whereby participants ‘bathe’ in the sound waves produced by instruments such as chimes, gongs, drums and singing bowls.
“Sound baths create the space and conditions for healing to occur on many levels. The sound stimulates our circulation and immune system, cleanses our energy meridians, and helps to release emotions stored in our body like anger, stress and trauma. Sound also balances both hemispheres of our brain, promoting deep relaxation.” Kaur.
Timothy Bell who has done sound baths for many years will grace us with his gongs and chimes from around the world. This will be a 45 minute meditation. Bring a yoga mat and blanket and pillow if you wish to lie down or you may prefer to sit in a chair. You can experience this however is most comfortable to you. It will be in person at the Upper Room location and cannot be recorded.
We hope you will join us and then it will be followed by our Moment of Oneness which will be both on zoom and in person.
Tim asked that the only compensation he wants is for us to contribute to feed the hungry. So, we will have collection for Capital Roots where Tim volunteered at one time. Capital Roots is doing a big campaign to build a big market in Troy for food deserts in the city.
