Group Sound Healing Experience
by Erin Anderson-Kipp

Monday October 17,  6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
$25 in Advance, $30 at the Door

Register here

Our sound healing journey begins with a meditation and intention-setting to bring awareness to the connection between mind, body, and spirit. From there, we flow into a sound bath featuring crystal singing bowls, gong, and other therapeutic sound instruments for relaxation and to integrate our practice. We close with grounding via chimes or rhythmic drum, reaffirming our connection to the Earth and to our intelligent bodies.

Used throughout history in ancient cultures to mark deeply spiritual and religious moments, sound healing is a highly practical way of helping the brain, heart, and nervous system communicate more efficiently. Scientific research shows sound therapy can measurably reduce the symptoms of stress, safely release repressed emotions, and activate the body’s natural healing responses. 





Sanctuary Meditation
by Erin Anderson-Kipp

$25 in Advance, $30 at the Door

This inspiring, expansive meditation leads us through three important stages of deepening connection to our Higher Selves. The first phase aligns the chakras, opening our hearts to greater awareness. The second phase links us to the transformative, clarifying energies of Sacred Geometries. Finally, we reach the true realm of our Higher Selves, which hold the key to the wisdom of our Eternal Spirits as well as to God, Angels, and other Beings of Light.



Tuesdays, 11:00-11:30 am, free

Broadcast Live on Unity of the Valley's Facebook Page

This same meditation is happening concurrently at Unity Village and other Unity centers. It alternates affirmative prayer and silence.
