Sound, Silence, & Soul Immersive Meditation Workshop
with Nicole Schoeppner, VSTP 

Are you ready to deepen your spiritual practice and strengthen your ability to connect to wisdom of your soul? Sound Therapy has been used for centuries to facilitate deep connection to our spirit, release stored tension in the body, and release emotional blockages that prevent us from trusting our internal guidance system (soul). Sound baths, and guided sound meditations are a proven pathway to elevate mood, relieve tension, anxiety and physical pain, and increase the sense of spiritual well-being. Through the use of binaural beats created by the harmonic sounds of resonate metals such as gongs, singing bowls, and chimes, participants are able to access deep states of relaxation with ease and create space to connect to the spirit within waiting to build and strengthen relationship with us. 

We invite you into this full day immersive meditative experience to connect to the soul. We invite you into a contemplative space to get clear on how spirit speaks to your heart to guide you into your fully realized self. During our time together you will move beyond sound and into silence, where the small, still voice can be heard.

“…And a great and mighty wind tore into the mountains and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake there was a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a still, small voice.” - 1 Kings 19:11-12

This workshop will create space for you to:
Connect, Listen, and act on your soul's guidance.  
Learn, develop and strengthen your receiving muscles.
Move outside your comfort zone and into your growth zone.
Share with yourself and others on a soul level.
Discover tools proven to help elevate physical tensions and pain.

What to Expect:
There will be extended periods of lying down in a comfortable position on a cushion or yoga mat. During these times, Nicole will bring in soothing harmonic sounds and gentle vibrations to encourage your mind and body to release all thoughts and worries and fall into a state of meditation. While in this relaxed and aware state, the harmonic tones and vibrations will cleanse, recharge, and balance the mind, body, and spirit. There will be space provided for journaling, nourishment, meditative movement, and a safe space to share your heart and your experiences.
