Sound Meditation for Kids:
Two Day Workshop
Two sessions to choose from!
Session 1: 7/22 + 7/23, 11a-1p
Session 2: 7/24 + 7/25, 11a-1p
Join us for this unique 2 day workshop for kids ages 9-12. In a small group setting, kids will learn about the physics of sound and how it affects everything around us. We’ll learn how over-tone emitting music instruments can be used to calm our minds and bodies. Each day includes a sound meditation, as well hands-on opportunities to play instruments such as singing bowls, tuning forks, chimes, bells, monochord, gong and more.
Kids should wear comfortable clothes for the meditation and bring a water bottle. Sound meditations typically take place lying down for deep relaxation. Yoga mats, blankets and eye pillows will be provided to make everyone comfy. Meditations will run for 20-30 min. each day of the workshop.
Space limited to 10 kids per session
