Shift from unconscious reactions to mindful responses through the vibrational vehicle of sound.

We constantly receive sensory input from the world around us, often leaving us in a state of triggered fight or flight. This means that we go through our lives with the repeated physical experience of shortened breath, tightened muscles, and heightened alertness. Our nervous system has pathways connecting our physical and emotional processes, both above and below the level of conscious awareness. This gives us the opportunity to influence our long-established patterns by rewiring the way we handle sensory triggers. Instead of stress reaction, we teach the brain and body to cultivate a relaxation response in the face of intense, unexpected, and new information.

Maraliz Campos, has created Sonic Mindfulness, an innovative technique that combines intentional breath work, highly curated sensory stimulation, ASMR, live instrumentation, vocal looping, and other ancient and modern techniques. Join her for an evening of self-exploration and neuroplastic reprogramming in a performative space of invited curiosity.
