RENAISSANCE SHOW Sound Bath Meditation
Doors: 7:00 p.m.
Fee: Pay what you can.
Take in the evocative artwork of trans-disciplinary artist Kyle Yip, and immerse yourself in a soothing sound bath by The SoundBody Collective with a Sound Bath for Unconscious Awakening, a one-of-a-kind live therapeutic soundscape experience created by The SoundBody Collective, a “sound bath band” comprised of three certified sound healing practitioners, Laura Notton, Nicole Manes and Rufus Glassco.
On Saturday, April 29th, 2023, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Collision Gallery in Toronto, join one of the city’s “most diverse soundscape groups” for a wholly unique sound bathing experience that will naturally relax your mind and body.
Taking place at an expansive art gallery space and inspired by the dream-informed work of Kyle Yip and his solo exhibition, 𝐑𝐄𝐍𝐀𝐈𝐒𝐒𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄 𝐒𝐇𝐎𝐖, The SoundBody Collective will combine a multitude of instruments and voices, including quartz crystal singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, shruti box, didgeridoo, handpan, drum, tanpura, ocean drum and chimes to create a transcendental and healing sonic journey designed to help recipients create a bridge between their conscious and unconscious awareness.
Give yourself the opportunity to receive healing vibrations, release fear and frustration and align with your innermost hopes, dreams and intentions for the year ahead through the power of sound.
Doors will open at 7:00 p.m., and the sound bath will begin at 7:30 p.m. We encourage you to arrive early to enjoy the exhibition before settling in for the soundscape journey.
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, as a limited supply will be available on-site. We also encourage you to bring anything else to help you be comfortable lying or seated for approximately one hour.
For those new to sound baths, please know there is no right or wrong way to receive one. During a sound bath, some people may experience emotions, physical sensations, visions or fall asleep. This is common, and The SoundBody Collective will be available afterwards to provide support as needed and answer any questions. No meditation experience is required to benefit from a sound bath.

What a Sound Bath is
Sound baths are a simple exercise in deep listening, which can lower stress. During a sound bath, sound therapy practitioners intentionally combine vibrations from instruments and objects that resonate, including voice, crystal quartz singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, gongs, shakers, bells and chimes to administer memorable and soothing soundscapes that relax the mind and body.
What to expect at our Sound Bath
We will be playing for approximately one hour. Simply lie or sit down and immerse yourself in healing sounds and vibrations. During a sound bath, you may experience physical sensations or emotional release. You may journey into a state of deep self-inquiry. You may fall asleep, or you may not. No prior experience with meditation is required to benefit.
