Gong Master Brian Dickinson turned Leo Hill into a sound bath on April 13 and the reviews from BCH employees were overwhelming positive:

AMAZING! LOVED it! Thank you!!!!

Please, please, please, please offer it again.

Thank you for arranging the sound bath. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been to several sound baths previously, most focused on the bowls, which were great. This one focused more on the gong, and was amazing. I received vibrations that I have never felt before.

Thank you again, and I encourage you to bring him back. I liked him and his sound.

The sound bath today was sooooooo verrrrrry helpful… On a lot of levels. I appreciate you making that possible. Thank you. Please invite him back.

AMAZING! LOVED it! Thank you!!!!

Thank you so much for inviting me to the gong meditation today! It was wonderful!

Curious about how sound effects your body?

Researchers have found that sound waves affect the human nervous system and decrease blood pressure more than traditional meditation, according to this article in the Washington Post. There is also new research on the benefits of binaural beats, which is when two tones at slightly different frequencies are played in unison. These sounds have been found to reduce anxiety levels, as well as enhance mood states.

Looking to try a new way to decompress and decrease stress during the work day?

Your BCH Staff Health & Wellness Committee has arranged a day to honor you by offering Sound Bathing and Tea for The Soul.

Come to Leo Hill A on May 25 and experience the benefits of sound bathing with Brian Dickinson. You will exit through Leo Hill B for a cup of tea and time to connect with your BCH community of compassionate caregivers.
