About the event
There's something very special about marking the change of the seasons, especially when you're able to do that in a place in nature. Ruby Koa is thrilled to be partnering with the City Parks and Rec Dept. to have a series of sound healing events at her favorite place for outdoor sound baths, Fairhaven Park.
The first will be this longer event to honor the summer solstice. Following about 20 minutes of gentle yoga and breathing, an hour long sound bath will follow. This will include crystal singing bowls and then an extended gong segment in which she'll likely play her Zildjian gong which is great for grounding and working on the lower chakras. Then she'll play her Planetary Moon Gong which has an etheric quality to it that will help you relax and let go. Multiple mallets will be used to bring out the full spectrum of beneficial vibrations and frequencies.
The other special thing about an outdoor sound bath is that the random sounds you may hear, from birds singing to people laughing and playing tennis will merge with the sound healing instruments to create an opportunity to release control and surrender to your true nature. Just as a body massage works out tight and knotted muscles, the "sonic massage" of a Gong meditation works out emotional issues that we need to release in order to move forward in life. The listener only has to let go and let the sound of the Gongs do the work.
No prior experience with yoga, meditation, or sound energy is needed, the movement and sound will simply meet you where you are and take you wherever you need to go.
Cost: $25, registration is handled by the city. Currently this event is capped at 20 participants, but if the weather is looking good a week before the event, at least 10 more spots will be opened up. REGISTER HERE
In case of bad weather: If the weather is too bad to have this event outside, the event will be held in the Fairhaven Park Pavillion.
What to bring: The sound immersion is usually experienced lying down on your back or a similar comfortable position, though for some, a chair might be more comfortable. So please bring whatever you need to be comfortable and warm, such as a camping chair, cozy padding (yoga/Pilates/camping mat) to lay on, a pillow, blanket &/or sleeping bag, and eye covering.
Cancellation Policy: Because this event is being hosted by Bellingham Parks and Rec, their policies apply, which usually include pre-registration and no refunds.
