Join Josie (almawellbeing) and David (heretolivelife) for a relaxing and rejuvenating morning as they take you on a meditative gong and sound bath journey into a place of inner peace and stillness.
The sound journey will include the use of the gong, singing bowls, chimes and gentle percussion instruments to help you enter a state of deep relaxation and rejuvenation.
For the Meditation we’ll take a pause from reaching for the next thing, slow down and with a kind and gentle curiosity drop into the silence and stillness that is forever present.

ABOUT JOSIE AND DAVID
Josie Lay – https://www.instagram.com/alma_wellbeing/
Josie’s approach to healing and wellbeing is one of purity and simplicity. Her main goal in group sound baths and one-to-one sound treatments is to offer a peaceful respite from routine. She carefully creates a calming environment in which the receiver can gently enter a state of deep relaxation. During the session, the sounds and vibrations help ease an overactive mind, relieve stress and anxiety by harmonising the nervous system, and open up a channel for deeper connection and coherence between the body, heart and soul.
Josie’s training initially stemmed from a traditional classical foundation. She pursued her love of music by gaining a bachelor of arts degree in music—but it wasn’t until much later, in response to a traumatic series of events, that she began her research and training in sound as a healing modality. Having naturally gravitated towards music and sound to bring inner harmony and healing to her own challenging situation, she was then inspired to study Sound Therapy and Vibrational Entrainment in order to help others. Always keen to expand her knowledge and skills as a sound facilitator, she is currently undertaking a Gong Practitioner diploma course with The College of Sound Therapy.
