While at the New Ways of Knowing: Writing and Meditation Retreat in Joshua Tree, California, we took an excursion. Trust me; this was not your grandmother's field trip!

We visited Integratron and experienced a sound bath. I've been bathed in the vibration from giant gongs before, but never had I encountered the resonance of this many—and this size—quartz crystal singing bowls.

There were roughly thirty people in attendance. Each of us lying on our backs on a comfortable mat, looking up at the domed ceiling. Once it began, many of us closed our eyes; some fell asleep.

After listening to a brief introduction, we were asked to turn off our cell phones, please not make any noise, and refrain from taking photos until the session was finished. From their website, this is what takes place during the experience:

 

The Integratron’s Signature Experience

“It’s kindergarten naptime for grown ups in a sound sphere”

This is an unforgettable sound experience for those who seek deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and introspection. All Sound Baths are 60-minute sonic healing sessions that consist of:

  • a brief introduction to the Integratron and its history and sound qualities,
  • 25 minutes of quartz crystal bowls played live, and
  • the balance of the hour to integrate the sound and relax in the sound chamber to ambient music.

You will be resting comfortably in the deeply resonant, multi-wave sound chamber while a sequence of quartz crystal singing bowls are played, each one keyed to the energy centers or chakras of the body, where sound is nutrition for the nervous system. The results are waves of peace, heightened awareness, and relaxation of the mind and body.
