SoundWork In Your Space
Guided sound meditations, Sacred Sound, or Sound & Silence workshops can be hosted at your own space. Yoga studios, wellness or fitness centres, retirement homes and schools have invited innerLife solutions for soundscape and drumming circles. Please note that all events can be tailored to suit your group's needs.
Sacred Sound Workshop
In a 90-min Sacred Sound workshop, participants are first guided to relax, breathe and prepare their mind, heart and body for a revitalizing soundscape. They are then exposed to the healing power of:
A Sound & Silence 3-hour event is a personalized sound healing work in a small group setting. Each participant receives her/his own series of cleansing and activating sounds as the soloist intuits the voice and instrumental rhythms needed to uniquely restore balance and harmonize her/his energies.
Simultaneously, each participant experiences, integrates and resonates with each soundscape created for others in room. Subsequent to the soundscape, participants undergo a guided "innerverse" journey followed by a silent meditation. The event concludes with a wisdom circle.
Sitting in a circle with others who serve as compassionate witnesses is powerful. The wisdom circle encourages participants to speak from their heart, from their experience in the moment, from their innate wisdom. The soloist, as spiritual mentor and healer, offers tools such as OshoZen tarot cards to embolden participants to speak from the truth of what they feel.
