The sound vibrations travel deep within the body, with the aim to hold and nourish you in the way your body wants to receive. You will be softly guided out of the scripted meditation by the gentle voice of Emily.
At the end of the session, there will be time to discuss your individual experiences with the group if you wish. Tea will be available to allow integration and reflection of the session before we close.
