It's the end of an era on SF's Valencia corridor. InTouch SF’s Jordanna Eve (www.intouchsf.com) and Cypress Dubin (www.cypressdubin.com) bid a fond farewell to Colleen Schmidt and her one-of-a-kind boutique, Thread Lounge, in a nostalgically healing Acupuncture + Sound Journey that may just take your spirit all the way to Bali<3
Begin with a welcoming meditative invocation followed by a potent sound induction and ritual acupuncture, blending gentle needling with enchanting live music featuring a healing soundscape of ethereal mantra, medicine songs, Tibetan singing bowls, world and shamanic instruments-- plus live vocal interludes from Cypress’ upcoming album Altar.
Sound meditations are designed to safely guide us in connecting to our deepest Self. Sound coupled with engaged listening and acupuncture swiftly calms the mind and grounds the body. This elegant restorative practice induces deep states of relaxation and circulates blocked energy-- using the principles of entrainment (the brain's natural tendency to mirror auditory frequencies) and resonance (sound's ability to align energy in the body). Overtone-emitting instruments and voice stimulate alpha and theta brain waves, bringing our bodies into harmony. Sound immersion is a powerful form of meditation— opening us to new possibilities of rest, resilience, and life vision.
New to the experience of acupuncture? Sensations such as tingling, heat, radiating or pulsing of energy are all par for the course, once the needles are gently guided into place. Attentive hands will be on deck to support you, ease your fears, and respond to any needs within our acupuncture sound circle. We are here for you!
Arrive 15 minutes early to ensure your optimal spot in the circle. Please bring a mat, a cozy blanket and any items that will make you feel at home (camping mat/pillow/eye pillow). Wear comfortable clothes and bring layers, as the body temperature drops during meditation and deep rest.
Let's send Colleen off to Bali in the most supportive and loving way we can possibly conjure in community. Be there with us!
