Sometimes it’s hard to get down past our own busy minds. Journeying with sound is an invaluable tool to help us LET GO and slip down past that chatter. In this sound healing journey guided by former Universal Recording Artist, Ben Carroll, we will utilize the sounds of singing bowls, voice, solfeggio tubes, and various other sound tools to journey deep within ourselves with the intention of reconnecting with our higher self and to strengthen our own intuition and inner knowing. We will utilize the energy of the group coming together to hold this intention to amplify our results and leave you feeling charged for days.

Sound Journeying is a very powerful medium. It is a tuning for the body, mind, and soul. Entraining to sound is an extremely effective way to get down past the conscious mind and into a much deeper meditative state than what meditation alone usually allows. In the depths of this mind state much HEALING & RELEASING can occur, allowing for states of bliss & ecstasy to permeate our being. From this state of mind, it’s much easier to find our spiritual center, to reconnect to our own intuition, and to tap into higher states of consciousness.

We will start the evening with some simple group toning to activate our group energy, next we will set our intention which is always important when doing any energy work, and then we will move into the experience of the sound journey for approximately 80-90 minutes.

** We recommend that you dress comfy. Please bring water, bring a journal, and bring whatever you will be comfortable lying down on for an extended period of time such as pillows, a blanket, or cushions. The studio will provide you with a yoga mat, but please feel free to bring your own. You’ll want to be as relaxed as possible during this two-hour sonic experience

“…Ben Carroll’s sound journeys are unlike any other I have ever experienced! Playing his crystal bowls prepares and tunes the body and then his voice guides you gently and powerfully into other dimensions…”

“… Imagine sounds, chanting, music, reverberation, bringing you to a primordial sense of consciousness beyond light and dark to just what is, pure being. This was my personal experience….”

“…Ben Carroll isn’t just another sound healer- he creates an exceptional experience with sound. Ben’s talents for working with sound and vibration include using his astounding voice, adding a multi-dimensional, other-worldly layer to the tones of his work. I felt lifted up into other realms that I can only describe as angelic, and cosmic….”

“…Feeling the reverberations of the tones was a sensation unlike any I’ve experienced. It really seeped into my bones and cells, and allowed me to move in and out of states of consciousness, opening up to messages and guidance…”

“…The group came together mostly unfamiliar and left with a feeling of community, united by sacred sound – in deep reverence…”

“…I was maybe even a little bit skeptical- but the experience blew my mind! It was a cathartic experience- felt like all of my senses were washed clean and within the next couple of days, some profound energetic and emotional shifts took place…”

Benefits of Hatha Yoga Stretch

Benefits of Hatha Yoga Stretch
Offered 8:15 am each Monday/Be Well Studios

There are plenty of unhealthy, thin or very athletic people who are living on processed, GMO body-building supplements and others who might be considered over-weight (large boned ? ) who drink raw milk, eat all organic and practice yoga. In many cases, size is not an indicator of health, but rather your mindset plus how many prescription and over the counter drugs you take.

This is where yoga and stretching come into play. How? Because these exercises challenge you to think about what you are doing and the benefits spill over into many areas of your life. I realize there are plenty of you out there who think intentionally while you are running on the machines, but it’s too easy to zone out or tune into the news or whatever is on the tv rather than noticing your thoughts.  Yoga and stretching are mind-body exercises because they take thought and intention. Yoga and stretching are not just about moving the body, which they do, but they have many other advantages.

What is the difference between the two?  Stretching is simply that, stretching. It’s pretty much body movement, kinesiology and lengthening the body. Yoga involves stretching, but also strength, balance and often yogic philosophy. The word yoga means union, and often the practice of yoga encourages you to form a union with whoever or whatever you desire. These are very simplistic definitions for the sake of saving space, all two practices help you become more flexible and increase your range of motion. Regardless of how you practice stretching, you’ll benefit in many ways:
• More flexibility: In the body as your muscles and ligaments lengthen, and in mind as you practice patience to achieve that length in your muscles. Building patience through stretching can help you become comfortable with stillness in your mind and body.

• Ability to manage stress:  Often we are so busy in life we don’t take time to reflect on our day and take time to understand how we are responding to daily activities or illness. Stress can be caused by many things. When you take time to slow down, stretch and become familiar with your body and mind it gives you the space to process how you are feeling and how you might be responding to any circumstances. Stretching your muscles creates a controlled kind of stress on the body when your brain identifies how to deal with this controlled stress, it teaches you skills to deal with everyday stress so you’re better prepared. This includes stress from pain, stretching in a controlled manner will help you deal with chronic pain. Often stretching can alleviate pain if it is rooted in muscles or joints that are stiff.

• Clearer thinking:  The busy-ness of life can be an obstacle to keeping healthy perspectives and actually seeing the truth. When you clear away the clutter from schedules, work and relationships it is easier to understand what your priorities are, what you can do in situations, and what you should let go of.

• Pain Management: Controlled stretching helps your mind and body deal with stress, which pain creates. Often, just moving the body helps you realize where your pain is coming from and discovering movements that can alleviate that pain. I always encourage my students to explore movements rather than just striking a pose and holding it one way. Pain management improves when you learn breathing exercises and specific stretches to ease tension in the whole body.

• Improved body awareness:  Life is busy and often our self-awareness is one of the first things we neglect. Whether it’s feelings of hunger, fatigue or pain, ignoring your body’s signals that something is wrong can become a chronic habit until something major happens. Stretching gives you the time and space to tune into your body and realize how you are feeling physically and emotionally. One of the most important elements to helping this happen is to do stretching in a relaxing environment away from any distractions that will keep you from focusing on what you are doing.

• Better sleep: When your body is tense and muscles tight, it can keep you from relaxing at night to sleep. Many of us carry tightness in our muscles without realizing it. The shoulders, back, and belly are the main areas most people carry stress. Simple stretching can help release that tension and help ease you into a peaceful night’s sleep.

• You’re less likely to get injured:  Bodies that don’t bend break. As people get older, their muscles and ligaments often get tight making it more likely they will break some bones if they fall.

• Make you happier overall:  Scientists have found that exercising only 7 minutes a day can help you feel better, lessening your chances of suffering from depression. Yes, stretching is exercising.

• Lose weight:  Stretching helps all your body systems work more efficiently. It increases circulation, gets fresh oxygen to your muscles, brain and all body systems. Your body can eliminate toxins more easily and often that results in lost weight. Weight loss with stretching is often a nice side effect of managing stress, breathing better and stretching.

• Improved balance and posture:  As your muscles become more limber, it helps your body to balance. Stretching helps you to free up areas in the body that are rigid, it is these imbalances that make our posture out of alignment. When you stretch and free up areas of tightness, it allows your body to become more symmetrical and you’ll see almost instant improvement in your posture.

What do you find is the biggest challenge in doing more stretching? Time? Instruction? Unsure how to begin? Join me at 8:15 am, Mondays at Be Well Studios. This class is for everybody, no yoga experience needed.
