Sound Bath at Triangle Arts

Attention hippies and Earth moms, Triangle Arts is bringing a sound bath event to their Lower Elm Street location. A sound bath is an immersive listening experience where the sounds of drums, chimes, and sound bowls “wash” over listeners. This vibrational sound experience is said to reduce stress and will leave attendants feeling refreshed. People are encouraged to  bring anything that would make them feel comfortable as we will be laying on the floor (mask, yoga mat, blanket, pillow, water, socks, etc.)

5 p.m.; $20 tickets available at eventbrite; 206 Lower Elm St., 31206;; (404) 919-5980
