Sonic Meditation Mission Statement
To utilize uniquely created musical tones/pure tone combinations, and frequencies based around Solfeggio Harmonics, Schumann resonances and other sacred concepts based on sound and vibration in order to modulate focus, mood, emotional state, and physical well-being. These frequencies are a tool to facilitate harmony of mind, body and spirit.

The effects of this environment are then further amplified by the shared energy of joint focus and intention within the group dynamic. Group size is determined based on event space. Ideal groups are between 30-50 participants. All affiliates in Listening to Smile’s Sonic Meditation Outreach Program are provided with a custom monthly Sonic Mediation© and guided meditation template to facilitate the experience and further unite and amplify the intent and healing potential of the monthly frequencies and theme.
