Sound Bath



August 11th • 5:30 – 7 PM in Concert Hall

Led by Alan Thompson, please join us for a 60-minute immersive and restorative experience using breath and sound to invite therapeutic effects to the mind, body, and spirit. This sound healing experience begins with guided breathing, as we tune into our auditory senses, followed by a gradual, continuous and progressive sequence of tonal centers and harmonic shifts using crystal singing bowls, and various types of instruments. By activating and engaging the parasympathetic nervous system for a sustained period of time, participants enter a profoundly relaxing and meditative state, as they recharge and restore to a sense of balance and clarity. Participants are encouraged to bring their yoga mats (extra soft mats and blankets will be provided), and to wear loose, comfortable clothing, and something warm. For ages 16 and up.

Alan Thompson, MA, LCAT, MT-BC is a licensed psychotherapist, board-certified music therapist, improvisor, deep listening practitioner, and teacher. He is dedicated to harnessing the transformative power of sound, improvisation, and meditation for healing, connection, and growth. He believes that by applying these practices through community engagement and collaborative initiatives, we can cultivate empathy, compassion, and nurture our interconnectedness and shared humanity. He has a private practice in Brooklyn, NY and works with the Department of Veterans Affairs, where he provides therapy to Veterans and develops employee wellness programs.
