Healing sound bath with John Hofton @ the Monastery, Manchester

2-hour extended session: Thu, 13th June, 2024


Join John Hofton for a special, extended healing sound bath here at the Monastery, Manchester. For those of you wishing to lie down for the session, please bring a blanket.

Sound healing and relaxation

Sound healing is recognised as an aid to deep relaxation, increased energy flow and is a way to still the mind and feel more connected to your inner core.

John uses a wide selection of highly resonant sound healing instruments in these sessions: e.g. Tibetan singing bowls, traditional American Indian drone flute, Gemshorn, Dream Chau gong , Sacred Solfeggio tuning forks, Tubular bells and Quartz singing bowls.

This is a gentle, refined and subtle form of healing which works holistically – on mind, body and spirit.

Feel more relaxed, calmer, happier, more energised and in balance.

“John has a warm, gentle, healing approach. I find inner peace in his sessions and always leave feeling lighter and freer.” Sue Pow

“John’s sound healing sessions are sublimely beautiful, where one is bathed in rich ethereal music which connects straight to the heart. I cannot praise John enough for the work that he does. It is indeed food for the Soul.” Paul Nicholson, BWY Yoga Teacher

The relaxation is exquisite and almost impossible to explain. The captivating sounds that the instruments provide lull you into a perfect sense of just ‘being’.” Linda Cullen
