Sonic Flower is a totally immersive and Life Enhancing sound experience. Participants rest horizontally or seated comfortably while surrounded by 7 singing quartz crystal bowls.

Typical Immersions usually last for 75 minutes and can be merged with your Inner or Outer Work. The journey is yours to choose.
