SOUND MEDITATION with SARAH STEPHENSON
Date
: Saturday 7th February – Saturday 14th March (6 wks) 11am – 12pm

Scientific studies have proven the positive effect and numerous benefits to be
gained from a regular meditation practise.
Sound is a very powerful source that can help shift our consciousness, change
our brainwave patterns, and give us a greater sense of wellbeing and inner calm.
It allows us to enter a deeper place of relaxation and expanded awareness.

As a musician and Sound Healer, Sarah has always been aware how sound and
vibration can have a profound effect on the individual’s mental, physical and
emotional well-being.
She will lead you on a mindful meditation, starting with a guided relaxation
to help you connect to and deepen the breath. You will be invited to join
her with some simple vocal toning exercises, based on the Indian Chakra
system, to help move any stuck energy.
Sarah will then create a beautiful soundscape, using Tibetan singing bowls,
tingshaws, shanti chimes and her voice. This will lead into a period of silence and
deep relaxation.

No musical or singing experience is necessary!

Price: The full 6 week course costs £45 or £9 individual session. Concessions £7.

There are limited places, so book in advance to secure your place.

If you want any further information please feel free to contact Sarah at or 07581 716233.


TRANSFORMATIVE SOUND WORKSHOPS with SARAH STEPHENSON
Date
: Sun 8th Feb, Sun 22nd Feb, Sun 8th March, Sun 22nd March 1.30pm – 3pm

Sound has an incredible therapeutic power. Everything in the Universe vibrates at its own individual frequency, including the human body and all of its complexities. If part of your body is unwell or out of sync, you can bring the body back into its natural harmonious state by using sympathetic vibrations and resonance.

This series of experiential workshops will explore sound in its ancient healing context. You will learn simple but profound tools for your own self-development.

These practical workshops are suitable for anyone wanting to explore a deeper connection with sound, and can be easily integrated into meditation practises and used with existing therapies.

No previous musical or singing experience required!

Sarah has over twenty years experience as a vocal coach and pianist and is a master teacher of the Estill voice training system. She is also a qualified Sound Healing practitioner (MCSH)

Price: The full 4 week course costs £42 or £12 for an individual class. Concessions £10.

Book in advance to secure your place.

If you want any further information please feel free to contact Sarah at or 07581 716233.
