We are made up of at least 70% water, and as the Moon affects the tides of the oceans, so it affects our moods and physical experience. These monthly sessions will assist us as we tune into the seasonal and physical effects of each specific moon cycle, and to encourage the therapeutic opportunity for the body’s meridian system to respond to sound frequencies. Sound healing as a tool to stimulate blocked meridians is mentioned in The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, a seminal text in traditional Chinese medicine. Similar to acupuncture, certain resonances of sound have the potential to affect and stimulate specific organs, reactivate stagnant energy, and help restore vitality and flow.
This ongoing series of sound baths, guided by Phil Jacobs, takes place each month on the Monday closest to the full moon. The May 2022 gathering will take place on the 16th, which is the same day as the full Flower Moon, as well as a total lunar eclipse for most of North America (also referred to as a “Blood Moon”).
Phil Jacobs is a musician and integrated health practitioner offering online virtual healing and meditation sessions. His first real love and relationship is with music, sound, and vibration. Integrating multidisciplinary training from schools, institutions and life experience throughout UK, Canada, Guatemala, and China, Phil is currently practicing as an Integrative Therapist in Toronto, Canada and globally, due to these times, teaching and speaking in the art of healing through mental and spiritual health advocacy.
Phil combines his love of music with his training in Integrative Health, Eastern Medicine (Ayurveda, Tibetan, Indigenous), Herbal Medicine, Mindfulness & Contemplative Psychotherapy, Relational Psychosomatic Therapy and Sound Therapy. He is deeply committed to creating a safe space in which people can draw from their own inner wisdom to facilitate self-healing.
His experience and practice extends to the areas of mental health, addictions, trauma, PTSD, chronic and acute health conditions. He has worked with and trained under Dr. Gabor Mate.
