Last Sunday I had the pleasure of introducing Tibetan Singing Bowl Sound Mediation to 190 teenagers at the Team Spirit 2012 retreat located at Bryant College.  The event was held by the MaDD of RI.  The theme for the day was stress relief through sound.  Here are some photos of the event.




They learned about brain balance (hemispheric synchronicity).  They also heard how sound can reboot a stress mind into balance through a cool thing called "following frequency response."  Yes, I even demonstrated how sounds of rattling can relieve a stressed mind.

We then shared a 30 minute sound meditation through the mysterious and soothing sound of the ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls and Gong.

Many of the adult staff were surprised at how effective the Sound Meditation was for inducing a relaxation response.  They also noted how many of the group seemed to go deep into the meditation and found their zone of chill.


Thanks to all the staff and folk attending Team Spirit 2012 for a great afternoon.
