Meditation is derived from the Latin word meditatio, which means “to align with the center”. Through exercises of mindfulness or concentration, a change in the state of consciousness is aimed for. In Asian cultures this change of consciousness is of central importance. A feeling of becoming one, a reduced perception of external events, the immersion in mind, body or soul are the goal of every meditation.
Sound Bath – Working with Sounds

Healing Sounds with the Body Tambura
The body tambura is a sound instrument which is placed on the body. When the strings are played, continuous vibrations are created which surround the body like a fine sound shell. The harmonious sound has a deeply relaxing effect on the whole body and is at the same time vitalising and gently stimulating.
One session takes about 30 minutes.
Singing Bowl Massage
“The world is sound
Sound is vibration
Vibration is energy
Energy is life
All is love” Nada Brahma
Healing with sounds is based on an old tradition. Already in the Vedas, the oldest texts of Hinduism, the healing effect of sounds was mentioned. Similar to the waves that are created when a stone is immersed in water, the sound vibrations spread through our body, which consists of 70–80% water and other body fluids.
Every person, every living being has its own individual vibration. If we are tuned in to this frequency, we go “exhilarated” through life.
A singing bowl massage can help to harmonize our energy and restore our very own state of vibration. The sound of the singing bowls is transferred to the body via the bottom of the bowl. The sound is perceived as vibration in the body, it has a massaging effect and penetrates deep into every cell of the body. Physical tensions and blockages can be released, self-healing powers are activated and healing can begin.
During the sound massage different singing bowls are placed on the clothed body.
