Sound Healing - Thursday, May 7, 7 p.m. Join facilitator Jay Taylor for a meditation designed to support you in achieving a deep state of relaxation. Take this opportunity to lay down, close your eyes, and allow the powerful frequencies of the crystal singing bowls to interact with your body on a cellular level. Take a moment for yourself to shed built-up anxiety, anger, and fear. Let go of everything you are trying to do and all that you think you know, and JUST BE. *Headphones recommended for best sound quality
