Mercy Mondays: Attend a sound bath meditation for stress relief
Counseling Services and the Mercy Center for Spiritual Life are hosting an event entitled “Sound Bath Meditation with Allison Schumann” on Thursday, March 30, at 8 p.m. in the Mercy Center. While the event is geared towards students, faculty and staff are invited to attend as well.
Sound baths are an ancient tradition passed down through the ages, and they are an incredible way to find a state of calm and peace during the stressful end of the semester.
A sound bath is a form of meditation that guides listeners into a deep state of relaxation using the sounds and vibrations from instruments — which can include including gongs, crystal singing bowls and chimes. It’s a time where people can lie down, close their eyes, and let the tension of the day go. Attendees will leave this event feeling restored, relaxed and in tune with one’s inner self.
Feel free to bring anything to feel comfortable sitting or laying down — props like a yoga mat, blanket, pillow, eye mask, comfortable clothes, etc. If anyone doesn’t have props, they can come as they are.
Allison Schumann, a local yoga teacher, will lead the event for a relaxing, cozy evening of sound. Schumann is a recognized wellness facilitator and spiritual mentor with more than 20 years of experience in body, breath and vibrational work. Her career has woven luxury hospitality, yoga wisdom and education into a rich fabric of deep connection with self awareness and the human experience.
