Meditative Concert (by Marc Requilé and Nuno Reis)

By bringing together the talent of two very different musicians, this concert is all about quieting down your soul and intimate moments of total relaxation, combining unusual instruments, east meeting west. An intuitive journey in which the musicians let themselves be guided by their senses and by their heart, one with Nature, one with the Universe. You will hear the Guqin, Tibetan Bowls, Gongs, Udu, Rain-Sticks and Windchimes.

Sound Massage with Tibetan Bowls (by Marc Requilé)

Healing with the power of Sound is one of the oldest and most natural forms of healing known to man.
Tibetan Bowl Sound Massage is profoundly relaxing. During the session, twelve metal Tibetan Sound Bowls are placed on the person’s body and tabbed following a specific rhythm. The beautiful sounds produced by the Tibetan Bowls also have relaxing hypnotic effect on the brain, slowing brain waves and inducing deep meditative state.
