Join us for a one of a kind immersive experience with Bhumi, a sound healing meditation facilitator. Let the soothing sounds of nature meld with rhythmic echos of bowls, reverberating around the archaic stone arches of a Trolley Trail tunnel. Manage your stress, improve your wellbeing, and literally find your grounding on a historic Fairmount Park trail. Meditation bowls will sing sing from where clang clang once went the trolley!

What is a Sound Bath?
Essentially, a sound bath is a meditation class with ambient sound played by the instructor that aims to guide you into a deeper meditative state. Sound baths use siding bowls and other traditional instruments to play repetitive notes at different frequencies to help bring your focus away from your obsessive thoughts. Think of it as an improvised meditative “concert” in the unique setting that combines nature and built environment.
