What are Virtual FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life. Built on top of our 20,000 monthly attendees at CreativeMornings talks, FieldTrips are community-organized events built on the spirit of generosity that has powered CreativeMornings events for the past 10 years.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Virtual Soundbath Meditation and Breathwork
April 18, 1:00pm - 2:15pm EDT. Hosted at FieldTrips on Zoom
About this FieldTrip
Immerse yourself in sound and soothe your mind and body with conscious breathing.
Meditation isn’t something you do, it is a state of being. It is cultivating awareness of the present moment and inherent stillness in us all. There is not a right or wrong way to do it, each person has their own rhythm. Coupled with breathwork, we will search for the space between our thoughts, allowing our bodies and minds to release and relax.
This experience is enhanced by both crystal and metal singing bowls along with various other bells and chimes. Theses instruments create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of parts of the body and mind that have found their way out of sync.
After the meditation, there will be time for students to share their experiences, ask any questions, or reflect on their own in a journal.
PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME so you have adequate time to settle in and not disturb the other participants.
Some Helpful Tips:
Find a quiet place where you are least likely to be disturbed to experience this meditation.
I strongly recommend using headphones so you can have a truly immersive experience.
You can either sit or lie down for this. If lying down it can be nice to support the lower back by placing a rolled-up blanket or pillow underneath the knees. If you decide to sit on the floor it can be helpful to elevate the hips either using a cushion or pillow. If your back is tender, sitting against a wall can provide good support. You can also sit in a chair or on a couch.
Our body temperature tends to drop when meditating so make sure you dress warmly or have a blanket nearby.
I have found meditation like this can turn your brain on receiving mode, so having a journal or notebook close by is a great way to be able to record anything that comes up for you or any thoughts you might have.
Come with an open mind. There will be time for questions at the end so feel free to come with any prepared and I will do my best to answer them.
