  1. Well that was a new one for me! It sounds amazing Christie and I love that it was done with dim lighting to take away some of the other sensory input and also to reduce and self consciousness. I can certainly see why you’d want to go back and do it again.

  2. I’ve had yoga instructors use singing bowls during yoga meditation but not a solid session with them. I struggle with those types of quiet meditation sessions – which I’ve been told means I need them even more! I’m looking into trying a Drum Circle this summer… I found 2 close-by (within 5 miles) of our new place, both on the beach at sunset.

    • A drum circle sounds fun, Pat. Perhaps I should try that as one of my 60 new things. I probably won’t get the beach at sunset though. That sounds divine. You might like the sound bath. I found it easier to lie quietly in a sound bath than a simple meditation, because you can focus on the energy and sound around you.

  3. I have never heard of a sound bath but now I want to try it. Thanks for introducing me to the concept, Christie. Even though it’s nothing like rieki, it sort of has the same vibe.

    I’ve never heard of a sound bath, where did you learn about it and find a place? Your experience sounded wonderful. I would just worry about the incense. I don’t usually love the smell and they bother my sinuses. Was it strong?

    • Ashley told me about it. I had mine at Sacred Energy Empowerment Center, not too far from where we live. As I recall, the incense was pretty strong, but I was right at the front. It might not be as thick towards the back. I’m not sure though.

  5. Oh, my gosh!! Sign me up. I have never experienced this personally but knew what it was somehow. Not sure how. The combination of the soothing sounds, the incense, the dim lighting sounds like my version of heaven on earth. What a wonderful experience. And your description gave me all the feels of experiencing the session first hand. Wonder if anyone in El Paso provides this kind of delicious escape. Will investigate.

    • I would definitely recommend it, Leslie. My daughter has tried several different ones and recommended the one she likes best, so I had that advantage…but I don’t know how you could go wrong with any one.
