We are doing many things to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
- We have air purifiers running constantly during and between all events.
- We have barriers that are placed between each person, or groups, for extra safety.
- All items touched are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before and after each use (this has always been done).
- We are limiting the capacity of public group sound baths to 8 participants to provide extra space.
- We are limiting the capacity of our Practitioner Courses to 8 participants to provide extra space.
- No one is allowed in who has any active COVID-19 symptoms, has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days, or has been around anyone who has tested positive or has symptoms in the last 10 days.
- We ask that all those attending our Practitioner Courses to not gather with large groups of people during the training weekend.
- Masks are currently required indoors in Los Angeles County.
A sound bath is an experience in which instruments are played in a manner to relax the body, calm the mind, and ignite your inner awareness. You will be laying down on your back with your eyes closed for the experience.
At The Soundbath Center all of our sound bath events are played at a safe volume. We periodically test our volume to ensure it is within the safe limits of sound exposure.
We have had many pregnant women attend our events over the past 18 years. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health advises that pregnant women avoid routine exposure to noise louder than 115 decibels, and our sound baths are well below this level and are within a safe volume range (we measure!). However, every pregnancy is different and we have not found much scientific research regarding sound and pregnancy. We do not place any bowls or other instruments directly on people during our events. We recommend pregnant women consult their physician prior to attending a sound bath event with us. Once physicians clearance is obtained, pregnant women are welcome at our sound bath events. Bring an additional pillow or two so you can lay comfortable on your side (laying on the back is not safe after the first trimester).
We provide a mat, bolster, pillow, and disposable eye mask for each attendee. We also have bottled water available. There is no need to bring anything else.
No, we start on time so everyone gets their full time. Please arrive 15 minutes before event start time and please DO NOT KNOCK on the door if you are late and it is locked.
First time sound bathers are welcome at any of our events. GongPlay® is our signature sound bath event. In this event we use a combination of gongs and crystal singing bowls. If you are looking for an enhanced experience try one of our premium sound bath events which combine other modalities, personalized attention, and other extras that add to the experience.
We suggest wearing comfortable clothes, and dressing in layers in case you get hot or cold.
We require advanced registration for all of our events. We have a maximum capacity of only 8 participants and we often sell out.
