The Rockport Public Library announces a new series of informational programs to introduce the community to traditional and non-traditional wellness modalities offered by doctors and other therapy practitioners in the midcoast. The series is called “Let’s Feel Better” and kicks off on Wednesday, February 1, at 1:00 p.m. with a presentation by Jim Doble entitled, “Exploring Sound Therapy.”
Doble’s program will include a discussion about sound therapy as well as a demonstration of how he uses gongs, chimes, singing bowls and tuning forks in his practice. Doble says, “The complexity of resonant sounds created by these instruments leads one into deep relaxation, while simultaneously stimulating new kinds of neural activity. This creates a great sonic ‘soup’ for transformation and healing.”
Jim Doble has been exploring sound professionally and making unique musical instruments for over thirty-five years. Through studies at the Sound Healers Colloquium and other gatherings, Doble has worked with many of the modern pioneers of sound “healing.” Doble is the founder of Elemental Design Sound Therapy and is well-known in the midcoast for his public indoor and outdoor “sound baths” and “sound immersions.” Doble also offers private and small group sound therapy sessions from his home in Union.
Programs in this new series are free, open to the public, and do not require pre-registration. Upcoming talks will explore reiki, Bowen Therapy, acupressure, and environmental toxins. For more information, please visit Rockport.lib.me.us.
