Join Aspen local Megan DiSabatino for a restorative sound journey and magical evening forest bathing in nature at Hallam Lake. Slow down and reconnect as we deeply relax and breathe, bathing in the healing sound frequency of the natural world and singing crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, chimes, gongs and drums, and soak up the beauty and wonder of the meadows and forests around Hallam Lake. We’ll engage all of our senses as we explore the trees, wildflowers, meadow grasses and icy waters of the Roaring Fork River.
Sound healing is found in every culture on earth. It’s one of the oldest forms of medicine. Sound healing can be traced back 40,000 years to indigenous Australians using ancient sounds for healing work. Sounds facilitate profound shifts in our brainwaves. SOunds and vibrations synchronize our fluctuating minds by providing a stable frequency which out brains can rest on and attune to. It becomes possible to downshift from normal beta state (waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness) to theta (meditative consciousness) and delta (sleep, where internal healing occurs). Sound creates a pathway to a place of peace and stillness the same as mantra helps you arrive at a still point for meditation. Sound healing balances and clears the mind and leads to a renewed sense of purpose, well being, calm and pure happiness. It reduces stress, anxiety, depression and supports metal, emotional and spiritual well being.
Please wear cozy clothes, bring cozy layers, a yoga mat or blanket (or borrow ours), pillow and water. Will happen rain or shine!
About the Instructor: The healing and visual arts have always been a centerpoint in Megan DiSabatino’s life. She grew up in a family of yogis and artists. About 25 years ago, she followed a deep calling to move to Australia to study sound, yoga and energy work. Megan’s deep dive into higher frequencies, yoga, sounds and the healing arts continued in India and Bali and then back to the states to teach in San Francisco, NYC, and back to her beloved hometown of Aspen!
