fullmoonsoundbath

Fee: $20/ $15 members
Registration: Registration is closed.

The full moon is a time for releasing and cleansing. The light of the full moon illuminates any obstacles or interferences in our lives. Once we recognize our blocks, it becomes easier to let go of what didn’t serve us in the most recent lunar phase. It is an amazing time to reevaluate and recollect. 

Join Milwaukee’s own sound healer, Catherine Soteira (Cat Ries), initiated by Akhilanka of the Temple of Singing Bowls in Mysore, India, to celebrate the full moon with a healing sound bath. Sound baths are an ancient form of deep meditation; they include various ambient sounds playing in a space where you can hear and feel their vibrations.

The sound bath lasts approximately 45-60 minutes.

The soundbath will probably be indoors; please bring a yoga mat, blanket, or towel to rest on for the duration. Come early: Jenna Knapp will offer guided walks in the labyrinth between 3:30 and 4:30 pm.
