      The Living Funeral Experience with a Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Bath

      The ceremony is an invitation to connect deeply with the mystery and richness of one’s life.

      It is an opportunity to reflect on the past, evaluate the present and prepare for the future.

      Participants will contemplate their personal memorial while imagining parts of their identity fading away.

      They will be given an opportunity to express their last words and wishes with a writing exercise and will be gently led through a death meditation using guided imagery with the healing qualities of the crystal singing bowls.

      What to Bring: 

      Participants should dress comfortably and be prepared to sit and lie on the floor for the ceremony. Bringing a water bottle is also suggested.

            The Pineal Gland is often called the Seat of the Soul. It is a small rice-sized, pine cone-shaped endocrine gland that sits in the middle of the brain at the same level as the eyes, it’s also referred to as the third eye in the chakra energy system. The Pineal Gland responds to brainwave entrainment methods such as sound, toning, chanting, voice, music and all forms of love.

            Who Should Attend This Workshop

            Individuals committed to sharing their gifts, talents, strengths and radiance with the world.

            • With the tip of your tongue
            • 2 ancient sound healing tones
