Return to the Centre
Chinese Acupuncture & Sound Journey
Thursday, 35th of July, 20:00-21:30,
Amsterdam De Baarsjes

A sound bath and acupuncture experience to bring you Home
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the energy of the seasons follows a set pattern through the Five Elements of Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal. These are the elements that make up the 10,000 things of this world.
Universal energy flows through a particular element for two months of a season before returning to the Earth at the Centre for a month. This time in the Earth element is a period of integration. Reflection. Restoration, before the energy journeys back out and into the element of the next season. We invite you to join us in a sound bath and acupuncture journey on 25 July to honour the seasonal return to Earth and the Centre after a season of summer Fire.
Tiny needles will be used on two “earth” acupuncture points – one on your foot and another on your leg to help you walk back to the center of the seasonal wheel. If you are nervous about needles or acupuncture please let Sandra know when you arrive.

ACUPUNCTURE Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that adjusts and balances the body to improve circulation, organ function and general health. It is used to treat a wide variety of conditions from stress, headaches and fatigue to digestive issues, stiff shoulders and torn muscles. To do this, tiny needles are inserted at specific points on the body. These acupuncture points lie on channels that were first mapped out in China over 2,000 years ago and whose relevance is being confirmed today through electromagnetic imaging. Acupuncture can be used to treat specific complaints, to boost energy and well-being, and to encourage relaxation and sleep.

Sound healing and Sound baths can enable and guide us into a deep trance moment of being. Much akin to lucid dreaming, it is a very present state a right here and now, moving between being firmly grounded yet travelling through the ether like substance of our subconscious. We ourselves as well as everything around us, is at its core in constant vibration.
Sound healing, wave by wave brings us closer to that state of calmness and feeling of completeness that every human longs for in their journey of life. One of the big advantages of the session is unlocking a creativity.
I treat sound sessions as sound ceremonies. To me it’s about a unique experience where you are guided by the sound, their vibrations and frequencies. I combine my range of instruments with my voice through singing and chanting.
During this session, together with intuitive singing, instruments such as quartz crystal singing bowls, chimes, ocean drum, Shruti box and gong will be played around the body. Vocal exercises will show you the healing power of your own voice.
