Awakening – Beginning of Spring Sound Bath
Sunday 3rd February 3-4.30pm 
The Scouts Hut, Springfield Lane, Weybridg

An exciting opportunity to join myself and Sacred Sound practitioner Susan Lorraine to mark the beginning of spring or Imbolc. This is the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox which falls on the 1st February. Imbolc is celebrated to mark this auspicious time, with its promise of renewal, of hidden potential and Mother Earth’s awakening and life-force stirring.

During this sound bath we will work on letting go of what no longer serves us and to look to the future, clearing and releasing out the old, making both outer and inner space for new beginnings. This is a potent time for clearing your mind and heart to allow inspiration to enter for the new cycle.

In this workshop Susan will use the soothing sounds of the crystal pyramid, the crystal singing bowl which stimulates the third eye chakra, the alchemy ruby crystal singing bowl, attuned to both the heart and root chakras and the beautiful angelic air chimes. 

Susan Lorraine is an experienced Sacred Sound Practitioner who, after experiencing the power of sound first hand in 2007 after an episode of severe lower back pain, realised it was her vocation to help others through this profoundly healing practice. The experience brought Susan to a pain free place where she felt alive and whole again. You can find out more about her here.

This event is suitable for all levels of experience, including those with injuries or illness. We will be lying down, supported by bolsters, for the majority of the workshop. 

Places are £20pp, payable in advance. If you’d like to book please email me [Email address: hello #AT# rmyoga.co.uk - replace #AT# with @ ]

The human body, at peace with itself
Is more precious than the rarest gem
Cherish your body, it is yours this one time only
The human form is won with difficulty
It is easy to lose
All worldly things are brief
Like lightening in the sky
This life you must know
As the tiny splash of a raindrop
A thing of beauty that disappears even as it comes into being
Therefore set your goal
Make use of every day and night
To achieve it
