RE: ASAP Wellness Workshop (In Person)– Finding Emotional Balance Through Breath, Sound, and Somatic Awareness


Date and Time:  Wednesday, August 16 at 12:10pm to 12:50pm

Location: Chemistry Lawn



Are you needing more emotional balance? Studies have shown singing bowls and breathwork significantly reduce anxiety and depression. Several cultures have used sound as a form of healing and emotional wellness. We can deepen this experience by tuning into the body and tracking sensations somatically. This workshop will focus on finding stillness through breath, sound meditation, and connecting to somatic experiences to improve our psychological well-being. Join us for a 40-minute in person experiential sound healing workshop geared towards finding emotional balance.


*Please bring something comfortable to sit or lay down.
