Sound Bath at the NCL

June 20 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join BGI for a Sound Bath Meditation with Alex Beckmann at the Naval Cemetery Landscape!

Join Brooklyn Greenway Initiative from 7-8 pm for a free Sound Bath Meditation on the elevated boardwalk of the Naval Cemetery Landscape.

Be lulled into deep relaxation using the sounds of singing bowls, gong, harmonium, vocals, and other sound sources to provide you with a meditative and healing environment. Lay down and enjoy. These Sonic Meditations provide a way in for deep vibrational healing of the mind, body and spirit.

Please bring a mat (or something to lay on), layers, or a blanket. The sun will be setting during this event and it might get chilly.

Sound Bath Benefits:

The body needs time to relax and rejuvenate. Research has confirmed that even listening to certain music can effectively and rapidly elicit the relaxation response and bring about chemical, hormonal, and cellular change that actively promotes healing. When our parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated [via our vagus nerve] by soothing sounds, we are sending a message of calm and relaxation to every part of our body. So when we say that something is “music to our ears,” it’s actually so much more. It’s a massage for every organ in the body. (Silvia Nakkach, Free Your Voice)
