Sounds of the Ocean

Oceans contain between 50-80% of all life on Earth. Come gather in community to experience the power of sound as a vibrational medium for stress relief, relaxation and deep tissue restorative healing. Take a break from our hectic pace of life and bathe yourself in nourishing, loving sounds of whales and dolphins.

In this offering, you will have the chance to dive deep into your own subconscious mind, while sonically travelling 3000ft beneath the Ocean’s surface. You will receive healing tones from instruments including melodic percussion, water drums, crystal bowls, gongs, vocals and recordings of whales and dolphins from Monterey Bay, a natural underwater amphitheater in a National Marine Sanctuary.

Our intention is to use sound as a way to better understand ourselves, while supporting the planet which is at risk of increased shipping traffic and offshore drilling. We fundraise for non-profits including The Ocean Foundation focused on ocean clean-up and you will feel good knowing that your healing journey is supporting Ocean conservation.

We hope you can join us!
