Join Joetta Lashway, Joshua Rector, and Tim Britton for a magical evening of healing sounds using gongs, Tibetan & crystal bowls, didgeridoos, flutes, and therapy harps on Friday, May 10, 7:30 p.m., at Golden Magnolia Sanctuary, 200 S. Main St., Fairfield. The event is a fundraiser for Golden Magnolia to help support their wonderful services to the community, including the Stone Soup Community Kitchen. The suggested donation is $20, but anyone is welcome to attend on a pay-what-you-may basis.

Vibrational sound therapy is an ancient art that can be traced back to the use of didgeridoos by indigenous Australians 40,000 years ago, as well as to the singing bowls used in the traditional cultures of Tibet, Nepal, and India.

The sounds from crystal bowls can have profound effects on the organs, cells, and skeletal structure, bringing balance to whole system. The didgeridoo’s broad range of harmonics vibrate in a universal, primordial tone that can help lift one back to a more coherent rhythm.

The flute can have many voices, including a transcendent voice that quiets the mind and can induce calm, relaxation, and emotional healing.  The profoundly soothing effects of the gong have been well documented, including reducing blood pressure and anxiety.  Said modernist composer Dane Rudhyar, “The gong is a brotherhood of tones perfectly united and blended, a cosmic entity. In it the law of cohesion manifests fully.”
