World Peace Sound Bath in Recognition of the International Day of Peace at The World Peace Sanctuary, Wassaic, NY – USA

Saturday, September 23, 2023

Many are familiar with sound bath as healing therapy that uses sound frequencies to create an environment of relaxation and well-being. During the “sound” bath, Cristina Reyes-Schleifer, Sound Practitioner uses a variety of instruments, such as gongs, singing bowls, tuning forks, chimes, and bells to create a soothing atmosphere. The sound vibration that the instruments create are directed to the body to help reduce stress and tension, allowing one to enter a deeper state of relaxation and meditation.

Ann Marie Robustelli opened with an invocation to World Peace as participants joined in a World Peace Ceremony in region order.

Cristina Reyes-Schleifer guided everyone with breathing exercises, for relaxation before we were “showered” with an explosion of sound, from so many different instruments.  It was an hour and a half of extraordinary melodic sound vibrating throughout the body —provoking further and deeper relaxation.

Thirteen attendees arrived prepared for this extraordinary experience, as they wore comfortable clothing and brought with them yoga mats and eye masks, blankets & pillows-prepared for the sound bath journey!

Lastly, and most importantly everyone arrived with an open mind and heart to deepen the experience further—as we were reminded that Peace begins Within. 

May Peace Prevail On Earth.
