Health, well-being and personal growth through deep relaxation, creativity and nature connection.
The sounds of the didgeridoo and other instruments are woven together with mandala making and intention setting to facilitate personal change and growth.
People are supported to explore their truths, passions and purpose in life as well as moving forward through the myriad of challenges that modern life presents.
WHAT IS A SOUND BATH?
Sound is made up of vibrations, or sound waves, that we can usually hear and feel. These sound waves are formed by vibrating objects (guitar strings, vocal cords etc ) and travel through air, water, and solid objects.
A sound bath is when an individual or a group of people are bathed in sound and vibration. The didgeridoo, voice and other instruments are played around, near and (on rare occasions) directly over the body to support deep relaxation
Participants are not required to do anything, however are encouraged to allow their bodies to respond to the sounds in whichever way they feel moved. This can be dancing, making sounds, singing, stillness or even sleeping. Some people choose their personal practice, either meditation or a variety of journeying techniques to look inward during a sound bath. Participants have the freedom to deepen their understanding of themselves in the knowledge that the space is free of judgement and that there is no right or wrong.
Every sound bath is different due to the uniqueness of the individuals present and the mix of energies they bring in any given moment. This is a key element to the work as the sound and vibration received during a sound bath is a direct reflection and response to the energy of the individual and the group. This interplay is what allows each person to unfold and connect with their potential for deep transformation.
Harmonic Growth aims to support people explore their true self through deep relaxation, inner-questioning and creativity. A safe and nurturing environment is created, where participants are empowered to examine thought and behavior patterns that no longer serve them. These limiting factors can then be released or changed by setting and voicing positive intentions. Each session, either with an individual or a group is completely different due to the organic nature of the work. Take a look at some of the sessions below, and please get in touch if you are interested in exploring this form of sound work or have any questions.
Connecting with your truths and passions
Group sessions can be tailored to fit around availability and specific needs of the group. The most popular choices are:-
Evening sound bath sessions. (2-2.5 hours)
A full day workshop incorporating sound bath and mandala making. (7-8 hours)
A weekend exploration of the self with sound bath, breath work, chanting and imprinting mandalas with personal intentions. (approx 20 hours or 2 1/4 days)
ONE TO ONE SESSIONS
Opening to a deeper sense of self
One to one sessions are usually held at Anam Cara, however can be arranged at your home if needed. There are two main options available for the sessions:-
a vocal sound bath using practitioner models from the College of Sound Healing
a didgeridoo sound bath.
Each session starts with a personal check-in with the client to see what their needs, wants and/or goals are, this is also a good time to let go of the busy-ness of life.
ART AND CREATIVITY
Setting and voicing clear intentions is a powerful tool that can bring about change with ease. Specific intentions can be woven into personal images (mandalas) through contemplating the intended changes while drawing and colouring. When viewed the mandala instantly triggers a remembering of the intention that is known and recognised by the heart, bypassing the cognitive brain, supporting the changes and growth of the individual.

"My deepest gratitude to you for a truly magical sound bath.
The session was very deep and I experienced a lot of energy in my 3 lower chakras. I went with it throughout the session, feeling at points energies rising up above and into the crown chakra and the lotus petals!! Throughout the session the didgeridoo sounds and vibrations made me become vibration as I didn't feel my body anymore.
It was even more profound when you stopped playing the didgeridoo and the silence. It echoed with such clarity of being! I felt my left side clearing of emotional blocks. I really didn't and couldn't stir when you played the ending chimes!! Or even open my eyes!!
Clarity at the end of the session for me was about experiencing more of my creativity.
After the session I have experienced more clearings with some anger energies being able to acknowledge it and then let go of it!"
