     For centuries the sounds produced by singing bowls have enabled attainment of both deep relaxation and helpful insight. However, it has only been in recent years that this sound healing has found its way into the mainstream.

For probably the first time ever in Sarasota, on Sunday morning February 16 from 10:45 am-to 12:15 pm at the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee a sonic healing experience will feature Jewish spiritual elements. Certified sound healing professionals and musicians will provide a blend of singing bowls, rattles, tuning forks, electric violin and other sound modalities in ways designed to engender well-being and spiritual enrichment.

     “It is exquisitely penetrating on many levels,” relates Community Chaplain Rabbi Jonathan R. Katz. “I always feel so relaxed and spiritually open through this experience. I’m pleased it is being offered for the greater community to discover.” The coordinated sounds utilize rhythms and intervals to reduce stress, enhance personal wholeness and reach higher states of consciousness.

Limited to sixteen people who will sit in anti-gravity chairs, this program is being offered by JFCS of the Suncoast’s Jewish Healing Program (FHP) which is sponsored by The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee.  The cost is $36 dollars. Participants will fill out a short questionnaire to share about their reactions following the experience. For more information contact Rabbi Katz at 366-2224 ext.166 or jkatz@jfcs-cares.org.
