What are Sound Baths?
Sound Baths are a type of meditation that can be best described as a deeply immersive, full body listening experience. The Sound Baths in the Cave consist of a small group of participants lying down in the large cave chamber on yoga mats covered in a warm blanket as the event guide uses gongs, drums and harmonic singing to take you on a journey through restorative sound.
What to bring:
You will need to bring along a yoga mat, a small pillow or cushion and a blanket as the temperature in the cave is around 9 degrees. Please dress for your temperature comfort level- socks, hat and a jumper or similar. We suggest you bring a hand towel (you may experience a few drops of water from the cave ceiling) and a warm drink in a flask with you. The space will be lit with lanterns creating a warm and inviting feeling.
Please note that we will walk down 157 steps to enter the cave, so runners/flat shoes are suggested. You may choose to be barefoot/socks once on your mat. Whilst negative experiences are rare, this event is not advisable for those with acute tinnitus, serious heart conditions or chronic/acute arthritis.
