WHAT IS A SOUNDBATH?
Offering a mini-retreat from the busy outside world, typically lasting one hour, a SOUNDBATH is a live improvised concert of ambient sound vibrations that shift the listener’s body and consciousness into deep relaxation and restorative biological states, Many people attend soundbaths to reduce the effects of stress and clear tension or blockages in the mind/body/emotions/spirit, in order to feel cleansed and replenished. Rafe Pearlman's soundbaths currently include crystal bowls and vocal toning/voice activations, and sometimes additionally: gentle and potent sea-drums, gongs, rattles, or other ambient instruments, to take you into a meditative state to help creative and pleasurable experiences open up, and fundamentally, to help anxiety and stress fade and our bodies' natural restorative functions to flourish.
Typically, during a soundbath you will lie on the floor on yoga mats or blankets in a comfortable position. Wear comfortable clothing and bring anything that will help you feel more comfortable lying on the floor.
Rafe's SOUNDBATHS ARE GENERALLY HELD AT LOCAL YOGA STUDIOS or OTHER LOCATIONS. PLEASE FILL OUT Rafe's CONTACT FORM AND NOTE THAT YOU'D LIKE TO BE INFORMED OF FUTURE SOUNDBATHS. ALSO CHECK Rafe's EVENTS CALENDAR:)
"SoundSpa"' is a term coined by Rafe Pearlman and Zia Sunseri for their soundbaths that include additional multisensory healing such as aromatherapy, herbal teas, and vegan chocolate truffles, as well as electronic elements layered into the acoustic experience. Rafe Pearlman and his wife, Art Therapist, Women's Group Leader, and Soundhealer, Zia Sunseri, are the original co-creators of the idea of SoundSpa's, which they perform together, combining traditional soundbath acoustic live instruments and layers of original electronic compositions as well as both Rafe + Zia's live Voice Activations.
Rafe & Zia’s SoundSpas are a truly unique experience, with their combined talent and presence of a united masculine and feminine healing power.
