A seaside sound meditation

Soul Sanctuaries will offer world weary individuals the opportunity to meet their inner selves, rejuvenate, detox or simply pamper in luxurious surroundings. We think that, if your budget affords it, you don’t have to deny yourself to meet yourself.Think yoga and meditation with living food and personalized guidance with the additional benefits of Egyptian cotton sheets.

We want to be able to tell our clients that we’ve personally experienced all our wellness retreats. Authenticity is key. Sometimes locations fall short but this weekend we experienced the most magical sanctuary imaginable. Read on…

We stayed overnight at the most wonderful retreat venue yet. Close enough to hear the sound of the ocean gently lapping against the shore, a luxurious sanctuary built from bamboo, polished recycled wood with alang alang roofs. It wasn’t just the sacred surroundings and welcoming staff which excited our spiritual senses. Each beautifully crafted suite represented the seven chakras. Their symbols hung above the entrance to each haven. The bedrooms were adorned with ancient Balinese wall hangings, Tibetan thangkas, Buddha statues and magnificent crystals at the foot of every bed. Stone carved oversized tubs were surrounded by tropical greens in a semi open bathroom.

I sat with my Soul mate,  imagineering a Soul Sanctuaries retreat in this tropical cocoon on Bali’s South West coast. Participants would enjoy a mixture of group participation with both Hatha and Kundalini yoga classes. One to one guidance and energy healing would be given care of one of our most talented healers. And to end the day, a meditation around the sacred circle, against the backdrop of a majestic Balinese sunset.

Thinking on prana, our life force energy, the chakras and the natural sounds of the frogs, cicadas and traditional music, I recalled a simple sound meditation which I’d like to share with you.I love both the vibration and focus it can bring to your meditation. Hope you enjoy this one.

Technique: When focusing on each Chakra repeat these sounds 5 times slowly (e.g. ‘Laaammm’) and a few more times silently.

The Root Chakra: When focusing on this Chakra repeat the sound ‘Lam’ 5 times and then again a few times silently.
