About this experience
PSYCHEDELIC SOUND MEDITATION
Monday 19th February
7 - 9 PM
A nourishing, deeply restorative sound immersion which will feature ancient sacred instruments and new sound technologies.
You will be lullabied by crystalline sound waves, earthy Himalayan bowls, the feminine planetary frequencies of Valentina’s Venus gong and her Solfeggio Tuning forks set, played live.
Solfeggio is an ancient musical scale. Once lost, it’s now revived and revered. This scale encompasses mathematics and spirituality affecting the emotions of the listener by deeply impacting one’s state of mind and health.
Ancient societies found the power of musical rhythm to hypnotise, heal and induce states of higher consciousness.
The theory behind the repetitive, rhythmic entrainment of binaural beats works on the same principal. Solfeggio tones can promote fluent emotional flow, relieving and harmonizing our being.
By playing with the Solfeggio scale we practice states of inner harmony by tuning into 174Hz forgiveness 285Hz + compassion 396Hz + 417Hz acceptance 528Hz + trust 639Hz
The term "psychedelic" as an adjective is often misused to relate singularity to psychedelic drugs, but psychedelic sound, music, and therapy are cutting-edge healing techniques that are expanding in popularity. Whilst still in its infancy, there is more and more research on how sound and psychedelics can evoke similar brain responses.
This session is for anyone who wants to:
✨ Learn more about psychedelic therapy, sound and plant medicine
✨ Explore deep relaxation and emotional release
✨ Naturally plunge into a deep meditative state
In this session, Valentina will begin with an introduction to psychedelics, expanded states of consciousness and a breathwork practice focused on dropping your awareness from your mind to your heart. Then, she will guide you on a sound journey to facilitate consciousness expansion, helping you to get in touch with the deepest layers of the self while promoting profound inner awareness akin to a psychedelic journey—all without substances.
Valentina offers her sound magic through a mix of ancient and new technologies, for a truly unique psychedelic sound immersion. You will be swaddled in planetary frequencies from her Venus gong (tuned to the vibration of the planet, which encourages third eye opening), and cocooned in the sounds of earthy Himalayan bowls, celestial crystal bowls, her voice and shamanic tools. Together with Wavepaths—a generative music software born from the research of neuroscientist Mendel Kaelen and Brian Eno.
After gently landing back to normal consciousness, we will have some time for integrating any material that emerged, as well as discuss plant medicine and the psychedelic movement in general.
Valentina initially trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, completing an MSc in Psychoanalysis at UCL and a psychotherapy training, to follow her interest to learn about the unconscious. She has been a practicing psychotherapist in the NHS and privately for the past 6 years. She encountered spirituality after a spontaneous Kundalini awakening about three years ago, an invitation from her soul to explore the realms of heaven after having spent a considerable time delving deeply in the underground. This got her interested in expanded states of consciousness, and she is currently training as a transpersonal psychedelic therapist. You can find out more about Valentina's work at valentinaolper.co
