What are sound baths or sound healing practices?

Sound baths are not a new form of therapy. The ancient Greeks used music to cure mental problems, and throughout history in both the East and West, sound has been used for physical and mental healing, relaxation, meditation, and for devotional practices. It is believed that sound healing synchronizes brain waves to achieve deep states of relaxation and to help restore the normal vibratory frequencies of the cells in our bodies.

Meditation and Sound Healing Retreat | March 1-3, 2024


With Jahidi and Ramesh Bjonnes

In this retreat, we will engage body, mind, and spirit through yoga, meditation, and sound healing.

With his Healing Power of Sound program, Jahidi will bring you deep into your innermost essence during this transformational 3-day meditation and sound healing retreat. Jahidi is a master drummer and sound healer. With him, you will embark on a series of immersive shamanic sound journeys as he uses many types of sound techniques—drums, gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, voice, and more. These instruments can all help to shift low energy frequencies to higher feelings of love, peace, and joy.

Combined with breathwork, yoga, meditation, and mantra practices Jahidi and Ramesh will guide you on a journey of self-discovery, healing, transformation, and embodiment.
