A Sound Bath is a deeply-immersive,
full-body listening experience
that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to
NURTURE YOUR MIND AND BODY
What is a sound bath?
Sound has the power to change not just our emotional and spiritual wellbeing, but our physical wellbeing too. Sound baths offer the intention of healing mind, body and emotions, as well as the transformation of consciousness, itself a path to wellbeing.
When conducted with relaxation in mind therapeutic sound sessions can reduce blood pressure and heart rate and relax the autonomic nervous system. Furthermore, the session can slow down our brainwaves, taking them from an awake and alert state to a more altered, deeply meditative state. The result is a lovely, drifty feeling, like the one we might feel just before we are about to go to sleep, which brings health benefits that enable us to be better able to respond openly to the demands of everyday life.
What happens during a Sound Bath?
The experience begins with each person lying down or seated in a comfortable position, often with a blanket and an eye mask. After a few minutes of guided focus on the breath, the remainder of the experience is filled with different sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession. The sounds are created by a variety of overtone-emitting instruments including crystal singing bowls, planetary gongs, himalayan bowls, tuning forks, chimes and percussion instruments.
These sounds have the potential to relax, realign and restore you on all levels and all you need to do is get comfortable and be open to absorbing them as they take you on a magical journey. You are free to relax and drift off where the sound takes you.
Our session was so deeply relaxing.
I literally feel like a new woman!
Wow. Just wow.
I feel like I floated out of your house so not sure I properly thanked you. I’m gliding my way through the day.
You’re a legend!
I've never experienced anything like that.
It's so interesting and I will definitely be back for more!
I feel like I've had a weeks sleep!
I have never been to anything spiritual or meditative before, the sound bath last week was my first tentative step and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I was at my first sound bath with you on Friday. Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it, and how much I needed it. I was quite stressed out, had a week of no time to myself, one activity leading to another, and felt detached. The sound bath grounded and calmed me, and I had a great night's sleep that night....feeling refreshed the next day.
When you sink into a Sound Bath and guide your awareness to your listening, you allow your brain waves to slow, shifting from a more active state to a more relaxed state, or even a dreamlike state.
The sounds introduced during a Sound Bath are an invitation into a deeper state of consciousness, an opportunity to unplug from external stimuli and to gain perspective on what’s going on within you. The goal of the experience is to invite deep rest and relaxation, and explore self-inquiry and self-discovery.

Celebration sound baths at Seagrave
Join me for special celebratory sound baths when we will step out of the "every day" and weave a magical journey of words and the sounds of planetary tuned gongs, crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, chimes and percussion instruments to honour and celebrate ancient festivals marking the turning of the wheel of the year.
The ‘Turning of the Wheel’ describes the movement through the passage of the year - the Wheel of the Year - in native European cosmology. The eight ‘hinges’ of the wheel mark the significant seasonal shifts in Earth-based, Elemental, Lunar and Solar energies, that provide gateways for deep spiritual practice and are traditionally engaged with through ritual.
When we engage with these potent cyclical gateways we reconnect with nature and our place within the whole. It’s a beautiful way to deep dive beneath the frantic, endless pace of survival and striving and take a deep pause to re-set.
As a special gift to mark the occasion you will also receive a downloadable hypnotic meditation celebrating the festival to continue to support you in your own practice.

Sound Bath FAQs?
You aren’t listening to music in the formal sense. Though the sounds come from instruments, they don’t incorporate melody, harmony, rhythm and arrangements like music does. The less-structured sounds in a Sound Bath help you listen without judgement.
Sound Baths remove the desire for reaction and analysis that you might have with a pop song, and allow the listener to go deeper into their own experience.
It is not meditation as you may traditionally think of it, but the Sound Bath experience can be helpful for anyone who wants to access the benefits of meditation or a period of relaxation. Instead of a meditative practice that requires you to sit up straight or have a point of focus or recite a complicated mantra or count your breaths, all you have to do during a Sound Bath is listen.
Sound is ephemeral – this particular sound is only happening right NOW – and thus an awareness of each sound helps you connect to the present moment, and explore mindfulness.
This experience can be beneficial for both beginners of meditation and experienced meditators.
Listen to Kat answer this question posed by the BBC ahead of her first sound bath at Seagrave Village Hall.
Most people report of a “good night’s sleep” after a Sound Bath which often extends into a calm, centred feeling the next day.
A Sound Bath can help you access a reflective, self-healing state and invite calm into your daily life, and further promote healthy sleep.
PLEASE DRESS COMFORTABLY. Bring your own yoga mat, and a cushion; a blanket, eye pillow or anything else that will help you to feel more comfortable is most welcome. I can bring mats and eye pillows for anyone who needs them, just let me know in advance (I have 10 of each and will allocate on a first come first served basis)
Lying on the floor is one way to experience a Sound Bath. If this is not possible, you are also welcome to sit on a cushion or chair.
Please contact me before booking if you are pregnant, have epilepsy or tinnitus, are recovering from surgery or have an implanted heart pacemaker, stent or shunt.
We will talk through any contraindications and explore whether a sound bath is right for you.
Private Sound Baths
Private sessions for you, your family, a group of friends or even at your workplace are possible.
I am happy to host a well-being event for your organisation, a ceremonial sound bath for your sister circle or a private healing session at my home.
