Healing Sound Experience, Carnglaze Caverns, St Neot Sun 5 Jun
Ever heard of a sound bath? Nope me neither. This is a new one on Muddy Stilettos. It is apparently an actual thing though, and is based on rhythmical sounds inducing deep relaxation. Muddy is a bit dubious of these things so I checked out hosts – Olivier Maxted of Soundbathhealing.com and Megan Selby of thelivingvoice.co.uk. Here’s how it works: you simply lie down and drop into the vibrations and energy created by the didgeridoo, harmonium, tibetan bells, crystal bowls, drums and Megan’s deeply resonating voice. Try not to doze off. Carnglaze Caverns is a magical place. Here’s a clip to the event last year.
