6 Ways to Ring in the New Year With Sound Healing

Join us in Ringing in the New Year by integrating the practice of Sound Healing into your life! Traditionally used in Buddhist meditation, Tibetan singing bowls are known to have healing properties, stilling your mind while encouraging deep rest and relaxation. Sound Healing facilitates mindfulness, and elevates Theta and Alpha brainwaves, which are associated with relaxation and concentration (respectively). Practices such as mindfulness, breathwork, and meditation that can be incorporated with Sound Healing activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is associated with our “rest and digest” mode, and relaxed social engagement. When you nurture yourself with grounding self care practices such as these, your capacity to connect with those around you expands.

6 Ways to Ring in the New Year With Sound Healing:

1. Engage in Mindfulness Practice: Take a comfortable meditative posture, noticing the points of contact between your body and the ground, and lengthening through the crown of your head. Watch or listen to our Ring in the New Year Sound Healing video while focusing your attention on your breath, inhaling deeply into your lower abdomen, and exhaling fully to draw your navel towards your spine. Your eyes may be opened or closed.

2. Mindful Meeting: Open your team meeting with Ring in the New Year as a way of facilitating the Mindfulness Practice outlined above, so that your team members can become more grounded and focused. Our team at the Dalai Lama Center opens our meetings this way to foster connection and efficacy.

3. Share With a Friend: Send a link to Ring in the New Year, which includes instructions on the Mindfulness Practice above, to a friend who could benefit from the calming effects of sound healing, and let them know you are thinking of them.

4. Donate to Honour a Loved One: Sign up to become a monthly donor through Canada Helps in honour of someone you love who might be struggling, or in memory of a loved one. Ecards are available when you make a donation–let those you care about know you are thinking about them on a regular basis.

5. Attend a Sound Healing Workshop: Find a Sound Healing practitioner near you. Farhad Khan, Sound Healer, Yoga Teacher, and Meditation Guide offers numerous workshops and sound healing events throughout the year at Maa Yoga in North Vancouver, including an All-Night Sound Healing & Gong Bath on January 24. Learn more details about his workshops here!

6. Receive Your Own Tibetan Singing Bowl: Learn how to play a Tibetan singing bowl, and integrate it into your daily practice. Our first 200 new Monthly Heart-Mind Supporters of 2020 will receive one as our gift to you by signing up to donate through Canada Helps! Your donation will be instrumental in providing children in our communities with a heart-centred approach to their well-being.
