Psychedelic Sound Journeys
- Wed 10th Jan 2018, 7:15pm – 9pm
- Eastbourne House Arts, Eastbourne House, Bullards Place, E2 0PT
Join us on the 10th January for an immersive & meditative healing sound journey created witha 38” Planet Gong & 32” Symphonic Gong, Tibetan & crystal singing bowls, shamanic drums, steel tongue pan, harmonica, shanti chimes, shruti box, &medicine songs.
As you relax on your mat, allowing yourself to be guided into an enhanced state of consciousness, the sound waves will wash through you, carrying you on a journey deep within yourself.
One of the intentions behind the session is to use the healing tools of the gongs, drums, voice & other instruments, to create frequencies and patterns, which when combined with various meditative techniques, induce an enhanced state of consciousness where healing can occur. Sound has been used in sacred ceremonies & shamanic rituals since ancient times, and can effect and change our brainwaves, allowing mystical altered states to be induced.
The sessions are inspired by psychedelic medicine ceremonies.The space will be set up as a sacred space. During the session you will be guided through a process which includes intention setting, deep relaxation, connecting to your inner healer, bringing about a heightened state of awareness of both your physical and emotional being, to journey within in a deep state of meditation. People often find the experience can bring emotions to the surface & some enter a dream-like state and experience visions consistent with shamanic journeying.
Please arrive by 19:10, so you have time to choose your spot& get comfy. We will be starting promptly at 19:30, when the doors will be closed, so that others are not disturbed once the session begins. Thank you :)
Yoga mats & blankets are provided.
The sound journey itself lasts 1hrs 20minutes and there will be an opportunity for a cup of tea after the session so you can feel fully re-integrated before you return to the outside world.
Unfortunately no tickets will be available on the door. Standard tickets are £15 / Concessions are £12
Jamie & Phil created Psychedelic Sound Journeys in association with the Psychedelic Society.
The session will be led by Jamie Richards. Jamie is a sound healer & gong practitioner, trained with the College of Sound Healing. He works with sound, breath & meditation to bring about & enhance the healing potential of altered states of consciousness. Alongside Psychedelic Sound Journeys, Jamie offers individual sound healing sessions in Muswell Hill & co-facilitates the monthly events ‘All-Night Psychedelic Gong Bath’ & ‘Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Meditation’. Youcan find out more about the sound healing work Jamie does @ https://www.facebook.com/InfiniteSpiritSounds/
Phil has practised yoga and meditation since 1971. He has studied in the UK and India with the Ramakrisha Vedanta Centre, the Shivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order and the Rigpa Organisation.
This session isn’t designed for people to take psychedelics at. The combination of frequencies brought about from the gongs, drums,medicine songs and other instruments, alongside the breathing techniques &meditation, will already bring about a powerful altered state of consciousness that enables a healing process. However, The Psychedelic Society does organise monthly ‘Psychedelic Experience Weekends’ - for more information please visit http://psychedelicsociety.org.uk/experience-weekends.
