Sounds that Heal Thursday

May10, 2:30 p.m., Free Singing bowls produce sounds which invoke a deep state of relaxation, stress reduction and holistic healing. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones which the

If you have your own bowl or any musical instrument, bring it to this class for a “healing jam session.” For questions or to register, call the Carnegie Library at 770-683-1347.
