Spring Equinox Sound Bath

March 20, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

$20 – $25

Celebrate the first day of spring with this special concert of quartz crystal singing bowls and finely tuned gongs surrounded by the warmth of redwoods. Close your eyes and experience the natural meditative quality of being in nature layered with serene sounds of quartz crystal singing bowls.

These unique instruments slow down your brainwaves to meditative-like states through a process called entrainment that have the potential to:

• Create sustained harmony of the body and mind.
• Release emotional stress and physical tension.
• Receive spontaneous insight and heightened intuition.
• Soothe and balance your nervous system”

Weather permitting this event will take place in the Redwood Grove. In the event of rain, we will move the program into the Garden’s Julia Morgan Hall, a 1911 building made of old redwood designed to echo the cathedral grandeur of a redwood grove.

No yoga will be practiced, simply wear comfortable clothes and bring layers, blankets, and anything that can make sitting more ease filled. Dress warmly. No meditation experience needed. Kids 10+ older may join as long as they can sit still for 60 minutes.
