Restorative Music Workshop: Sound Bath with Katie Down and Michael Jay

Saturday May 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm


Let go and relax through deep listening and vocal toning.

Facilitated by Katie Down, MT-BC, LCAT and Michael Jay on gongs

Sound Bath Meditations generally run about 90 minutes including guided meditation, breathwork, and vocal toning. Himalayan singing bowls, quartz crystal bowls, gongs, voice, monochords, and other therapeutic musical drone instruments are used to create a profound sense of calm, relaxation, and connection through connecting the body-mind energy system and balancing the central nervous system.

Katie Down, MMT, MT-BC, LCAT, is a board-certified and licensed music psychotherapist in the state of New York with offices in the Flat Iron district of Manhattan and the East Village, offering sound baths and sound healing experiences throughout the city, nationally, and abroad. She received her masters degree in music psychotherapy at New York University with additional training and experience in EMDR for trauma and PTSD,  improvisational voice work,  Nada Yoga, and mindfulness meditation. Katie is the Director of Outreach and Special Events for the New York City chapter of the Society for Arts in Healthcare, and is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist and composer for film and theatre.

Michael Jay is one of the first US students of Grand GongMaster Don Conreaux.  He is a primary member of Don’s Mysterious Tremendum performance group, and continues to study and assist him with gong trainings regularly while Don is in the US.  He is a senior student and facilitator of Sage Academy of sound Energy retreats and trainings, and is also periodically involved with the Open Center as a facilitator in their Sound and Music Institute Program.  He is well versed in the use of tuning forks in the Acutonics and Bionics systems, and works as a health coach, utilizing these systems as well as the shiatsu techniques of Shashi, and other healing modalities including Eft and Reiki and is Director of Therapeutic Sound at You Can Thrive.
