    Sound Bath experience with
    Daniella White, Daniel Blue, Luk Will 

    All ages, very quiet event. Bring your own yoga mat or soft blanket to lay down on. Tea will be available for donation.

    @ St Mark’s Cathedral, 1245 10th Ave East, free parking onsite.

    7:00p doors, 7:30p start.

     

    Capacity is limited for this event.  Bring your own yoga mat if possible, we will have a limited number of mats & cushions available. Tea will be available for donation. All ages, very quiet event. No cameras or phones please. 

    From the artists: “Come try a brand new chill-out music experience. Have a cup of steaming herbal tea goodness, bring your yoga mat, lay down or lean on a pillow and let yourself be taken away on a healing journey with songs by Lucas Williams and Daniel Blue specially selected to blend with the meditation inducing and transportive sounds of Daniella White’s rock-star-approved “sound bath”. 
    (No yoga poses required) 

    A sound bath is an improvised concert played with the intent of releasing energy that is no longer serving you, and shifting to a more positive and relaxed state of being. Participants usually lie in a comfortable position on the floor (in savasana). Daniella plays the crystal bowls and gongs, accompanied by shamanic vocal toning. During the savasana you will be bathed in healing vibrations that will help you achieve deep states of relaxation, where healing can take place.

    ‘I’ve attended two of Daniella’s baths and had several personal sessions. There’s something especially magical about the way she understands and organizes sound waves with human consciousness. I always walk away a different person with more clarity and hope and courage to face the “noise” of modern chaos. I’ve begun to study and participate with Daniella in baths because as a musician, I find sound healing absolutely fascinating, and I find it nearly impossible not asking if I can play along. Lucas and I have had many sessions of meditative sound collaboration on more traditional rock instruments and a shared dream of developing a healing/spirituality based project to take on the road. When he appeared back from Montana with a freshly recorded solo album asking for shows, Daniella and I were in the process of carefully adding soft bass and drums to her traditional bowl and gong ceremony. I quickly realized that the three of us could put on one crazy magical show.’
    – Daniel Blue
