Sound enables us to explore powerful meditation techniques effortlessly. Find deep states of relaxation, healing, and transformation as you are guided on a journey by various instruments and singing voices, enhanced by restorative yoga postures.
In restorative yoga we take very passive postures like reclining twists and folds and hold the postures with plenty of support such as blankets and blocks. Studies have shown restorative yoga activates the relaxation response in the body for deep healing, and this combined with sound has powerful effects.
Sound has been used for thousands of years as a way to positively influence the nervous system, induce states of healing, experience various states of consciousness, etc. Every culture has some sort of musical practice, whether it be simple singing and drumming, or more intricate artistic masterpieces. Ancient shamanic singing practices were used to create states of ecstatic bliss. Recent scientific findings have revealed much about the capabilities of sound to heal. The vibrations of each sound frequency can promote circulation and can release tension stored in our bodies' tissues, in addition to a plethora of other benefits.
The overtone singing practiced by Colin involves simultaneously producing multiple tones and can transport people to ethereal and otherworldly states of being. The Winter Solstice is a powerful time for deep reflection and transformation!
