Sound bathing in the Cathedral

Friday 2 August and Friday 16 August, 6.45pm

Sound bathing is an ancient practice that involves participants being ‘bathed’ in sound waves, which aims to promote mental wellbeing by encouraging you to relax and release stress and anxiety.

This summer, we’ll be running sun-set sound bathing sessions in August in the magnificent surroundings of the Cathedral Nave. Enjoy the building from a new perspective, free from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Lie down in a comfortable spot and switch off, as a mesmerising soundtrack permeates through the magnificent surroundings of the Cathedral Nave.

The soundtrack for these sessions has been specially composed by local music producer Ratljost featuring sounds from around the Cathedral – such as the tolling bell, bird song and our stonemasons at work – and the resulting piece is mesmerising.

You may wish to pray or reflect as you listen, taking in the glory of your surroundings as you do so.

After sound bathing you are welcome to stay for the rare opportunity to experience a Taizé service, which will take place around our Labyrinth which will be in the Nave throughout August.
