About the event

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." - Nikola Tesla

Welcoming you to a brand new sound immersion in Woodstock, Oxfordshire to honour the passing of the seasons in the great wheel of the year - held by local musician and holistic sound artist Molly Chinner.

Sound bathing is a beautiful resting practice, designed to soothe you in mind, body and spirit. 

It doesn't involve water (hehe) but you will be 'bathed' in a cocoon of pure and healing vibrations, guiding you to reach a greater sense of harmony. Sound healing can help to 'retune' any dissonance in the body to a set of more helpful, harmonic resonances supporting overall health and wellness. Sound healing can be helpful for relieving symptoms of many common ailments, mental health disorders and conditions - a sonic tonic of respite from our fast-paced world.

In this moment we gather in the Woodstock community centre to acknowledge this important moment in the seasonal shift - where the light is growing and beautiful Beltane (May Day) has arrived. May day is the central point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. A time where the light is quickly growing and the Earth is bursting into life all around us. Beltane is a moment of joy and celebration - amplifying our creative forces to reflect the blossoming world. 

You will be greeted with a steaming cup of seasonal, herbal tea and a warm, friendly community. You will be able to choose an intention card from the deck if you wish before being guided to settle down into rest. We'll open with some gentle mindfulness meditation and relaxation accompanied by seasonal musings and poetry. You'll then drift into a cosmic state of rest accompanied by the angelic chimes of crystal singing bowls and Molly's voice. 

Molly's signature sound sessions are created using a combination of pure, crystaline tones, ambient drones, Celtic and English folk songs, sacred Mantra, ethereal vocals and  to create a blissful sound cocoon for you to be held by. Her intention is to hold a space for you to receive what you need in any given moment, crafting a little pocket of rest for you to reflect on the turning, seasonal wheel.

At the end you'll be gently reawakened by the sound of chimes and Molly's voice. Leaving with a refreshed sense of energy and creativity. 

There will be some delicious little natural sweet treats served afterwards and the opportunity for community sharing.
