Sound Healing Meditation: Journey through the Chakras
With the use of 10 quartz singing bowls, this vibrational therapy tunes the energetic body to optimal balance, helping to remove blockages in the body’s energy channels, as well as opening the main energy centers (chakras) and promote deep relaxation. Each bowl is attuned to a vibration that opens a specific chakra and you will be guided through a meditative journey, bringing awareness to each energy center as the bowls are being played. During the practice you can sit or lay down, get comfy, and allow the vibration of the bowls move through you, as your body and mind to enter a deep meditative state.

The Symphony of Serenity: Sound Healing Meditation Journey
w/ Kennedy OneSelf
A profoundly potent symphonic orchestration of acoustic vibration that guides us to the stillness that exists beyond all thoughts.
You are invited to relax and simply be. Come and listen without any effort of any kind. When you can listen with conscious alertness, just noticing the melodically pulsating conversation, meditation comes on it’s own. Not trying to clear the mind of thoughts… becoming a witness to all that rises and falls.
At ease, we begin to notice the small gaps of stillness between thoughts. Gradually, we find it natural to reside in this immensely peaceful silence. We are simply creating the right circumstances for peace to make a home in us, for meditation to happen to us. These harmonic vibrations are designed to become a foundation for our journey towards blissfulness.
This sound healing is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. Kennedy weaves vibrations so fluidly people often imagine three musicians(Or that he has 6 arms). Deeply witnessing the resonating vibrations of Didgeridoos, crystal and tibetan singing bowls & bells, Gongs, Flutes(Chinese, Indian, American, Harmony, Drone), Handpan, Asian Harp, Kalimba, the Unity Harp and more, stillness descends upon the mind, and we bask in the glorious moment that is now.
Kennedy OneSelf is a student and teacher of meditation, a phenomenal musician, ceremonial
facilitator, and an instrument builder. After years of trying to spread peace, he realized that if one can simply be peaceful, from this bliss the world is inspired. Serene, meditative music that reminds us of our eternal essence thus became his greatest passion.

HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Method
5 Modules Course
Highlights: How the mind and emotions affect the body · Why labor hurts and why it doesn’t have to · Releasing fear, the enemy of labor · Preparing your mind and body for birthing · Avoiding artificial induction and episiotomy ·Developing ultimate-depth relaxation · Understanding the stages of labor ·Preparing your Birth Plan ·Tapping Nature’s own relaxant · Breathing your baby down for birth
About HypnoBirthing®: The HypnoBirthing® Childbirth method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. It teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. You will learn to call upon your body’s own natural relaxant and thus lessen or eliminate discomfort and the need for medication. When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth and when mind and body are in harmony, nature is free to function in the same will-designed manner that it does with all other creatures.
You will be fascinated as you view HypnoBirthing® films showing laboring mothers, awake, alert and in good humor as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you, too, can know when you are free of the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome. This method teaches you to release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of harmful emotions that lead to pain-causing fear and unyielding muscles. You will learn the art of using your own natural birthing instincts, while being aware and fully in control, but profoundly relaxed.
YOU WILL LEARN:
To explode the myth that pain is a necessary accompaniment to labor
What’s wrong with labor as it exists with most other childbirth methods
Techniques of deep relaxation to help you eliminate the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome
How your body is naturally designed to conceive, nurture and birth your baby with ease and comfort
To create your body’s own natural relaxant, the only safe labor enhancement
Natural ways to bring your body into labor without artificial chemical induction
How you and your birthing companion can create a birthing environment that is calm, serene and joyful, rather than tense and stressful
Gentle birthing techniques that allow you to breathe your baby into the world without the violence of hard physical pushing
To use your natural birthing instincts to birth your baby in a way that most mirrors the way that nature intended
