Cristina Reyes-Schleifer will lead a sound meditation from 7 to 8 p.m., December 18, at The World Peace Sanctuary, in Wassaic. “We all want to live a more fulfilling, less stressful life, and one way to accomplish this is through the combination of meditation and sound,” she says.

For more than 10 years, Reyes-Schleifer has conducted meditation and spiritual development groups in New York and Connecticut, and for the past five years, as a certified sound practitioner, she has conducted personalized “sound baths,” creating calming auditory milieus for participants through the use of Tibetan singing bowls, tuning forks, chimes, bells, gongs and other instruments.

Now, she says, she has combined the best of these modalities into her own creation: an integrated, restorative “sound meditation,” which she currently offers on the second Wednesday of each month at The World Peace Sanctuary.

 “This guided meditation enhanced by sound leads to the release of muscle and emotional tension, energy blockages and other forms of disease while bringing participants to new levels of spiritual and empowering awakening,” she says.

 Cost: $5 donation. Location: The World Peace Sanctuary, 26 Benton Rd., Wassaic, NY. For more info, call 917.900.7705 or email [email protected]
