Saturday 1 May, 2:30pm – 3:30pm
Bargara Cultural Centre, 180 Hughes Road, Bargara
This workshop combines the power of sound healing with a channelled meditation on the inner child to promote deep healing, resolution and peace.
The first seven years of life have a significant impact on the way our brains form, imprinting beliefs, communication styles and interaction patters that continue on with us throughout our life journey.
The inner child is the part of our psyche that was formed by the positive and negative aspects of our foundational years. The suppressed needs and unresolved emotions of our childhood, the messages that we received from parents and any traumatic experiences can become internalised and create blockages and patterns of behaviour that impact us.
Neural imaging studies have demonstrated that meditation practices can rewire the brain, quieting the areas of the brain responsible for initiating the stress “fight or flight” response and strengthening the areas of the brain associated with higher order thinking, awareness and memory.
Utilising the modalities of sound and meditation, this immersive workshop experience will begin to recondition the mind, body and spirit to repair old childhood wounds and create lasting wellness.
The sound healing session will use a complete set of 8 pure Quartz Crystal bowls which comprise a musical scale ranging from low C to high C. Each bowl is tuned to a specific frequency/note that correlates with our chakras, meridians, colours, spoken tones and sacred geometries. The bowls are made of 99% pure quartz crystal. The human body consists of a liquid crystalline structure. Hence the bowls speak the frequency of every cell in our body on a cellular and DNA level. These beautiful instruments will be combined with a singing chalice, specifically tuned for the heart chakra, F note 425 hertz. The chalice works with higher heart consciousness, higher heart healings and activations.
The inner child meditation will be led by Katie Laurie.
The sound healing session will be led by Karen Betts.
