SOUNDBATH + CACAO (with Ramona in the Saloon)

Charge the visceral nervous system with sound. Using select tones, along with binaural beats from a variety of instruments, you will receive sound by laying down and absorbing the energy through frequency and vibration. Allow your unconscious and subconscious mind to find harmonious balance through the journey of sound. Applying sound with drowning effects can be a powerful aide in releasing stress, tension and distractions, allowing for a deepened/enhanced meditative state.
