Women’s Health and Wellbeing Services is a not for profit organisation that works with women and families in the community to reduce the impact of mental health problems on families and to help foster growth, for strong women and strong families. Your small change will make a big change!
Research shows that there are multiple benefits of music on mental and physical health. Relaxing music may also reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol which may be one of the reasons why listening to music may calm our minds.
Experience a soothing guided meditation and sound bath during mental health week where you will be guided through a meditation on the theme of compassion for self and others. Following this you will be immersed in a deeply relaxing sound bath using Tibetan Singing bowls, Koshi chimes, a rain maker and more.
Yoga mats will be provided for your comfort so you can lie down for the duration of the meditation. Please bring a blanket to put over you (or two if you would like to lie on a blanket) and a small pillow for under your head.
