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

Are you ready to explore sound as a meditative practice for inner stillness, connection and healing?  Sound Therapy is a meditative and therapeutic practice that involves immersing oneself in sounds and vibrations produced by various instruments, such as singing bowls, gongs, chimes, and other instruments.

The instruments used in a sound bath produce harmonic tones and vibrations that can help induce a deep state of relaxation and promote healing. The sounds and vibrations have a balancing and calming effect on the mind and body, helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote a sense of overall well-being.

Sound Baths are a natural and effective form of stress reduction, deep relaxation, meditation, and promoting a sense of harmony and balance. They are also helpful for enhancing creativity, improving sleep quality, and supporting emotional and energetic healing.

This workshop will create space for you to:

  • Use sound to connect to inner stillness.
  • Practice listening through both sound and silence.
  • Learn, develop and strengthen your receiving muscles
  • 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.

Benefits of Sound Therapy:

  • Relaxation and Stress Reduction
  • Meditation and Mindfulness
  • Improved Sleep
  • Emotional Release
  • Pain Management
  • Enhanced Creativity and Focus

What you need to bring:

  • A journal
  • Bring your own “Nest” -- Yoga mats, bolsters, pillows, cushions, eye coverings, blankets, or anything you need to be comfortable on the floor
  • A willingness to share from your heart
  • Dress in layers and bring socks so you are able to adjust your body temperature
