Introverts tend to spend a lot of time in their heads, and that sometimes can back fire if we are not conscious of a healthy balance between mind and body. Staying in the head can lead to analysis paralysis.
Sonic Therapy™ helps you to slow the inner dialogue, create headspace and reconnect to your body by dropping in and tapping into the deepest desire of your heart. It allows you to become more present and in touch with your feelings.
