Sound Healing and Silent Labyrinth Walk


Sound healing is an ancient therapeutic technique that uses tonal frequencies to balance and harmonize the body’s vibrations. A sound healing session, often known as a sound bath, involves lying on the floor or a yoga mat, sometimes cuddling up with a warm blanket, and simply listening as a practitioner plays various instruments while you “bathe” in the soothing sounds and vibrations. The sound frequencies then induce a deeply restorative state in the brain, activating the body’s self-healing system.


The Labyrinth is an ancient tool and symbol of wholeness. The imagery of the circle and spiral combine into a meandering but purposeful journey. The Labyrinth represents a path to our own center and back again into our world. Labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.

Join us at Well of Mercy for this healing and restorative afternoon.
