First Tuesday of every month | 6:30 – 7:20 pm
Join us at our studio on the first Tuesday of every month for a deeply calming sound bath with Certified Sound Practitioner and Senior Life Coach, Clara Belden.
Sound Baths are a meditative, multisensory, and unique experience in which participants are bathed in the vibration of various instruments while lying down. Unlike other forms of meditation, Sound Baths focus on ambient sounds, rather than silence or a guided practice to reach a new state of tranquility.
This lie-down meditation encourages deep relaxation, allowing you to unplug and find release. We encourage you to bring a mat, a blanket, pillows, eye coverings, or whatever helps you to settle into rest.
All are welcome to our space to enjoy the benefits. Whether you are curious about sound meditation or meditation in general, seeking to deepen your practice, or are just in need of an evening to reset, Clara will be your guide into a transformative practice of sound healing.
Did you know we also offer Private Sound Healing?

March 7th, 21st, April 4th, 18th | 6pm-7:15pm
Have you ever learned some super useful tool, either in a therapy session, from a friend, or in passing and thought– “why has nobody told me this before?” It’s those nuggets of wisdom that stick with you and show up when you need them most.
In our next book club, Amy Narusas, LCSW is leading discussions and explorations into exactly that topic: understanding your mind and how to nurture it on a daily basis.
Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before, by Dr Julie Smith teaches you how to develop, strengthen and maintain your mental health, despite the ups and downs life throws at you. This book shares expert advice and powerful coping techniques that will help you stay resilient, present, and compassionate towards yourself and others.
Whether you want to manage anxiety, deal with criticism, cope with depression, build self-confidence, find motivation, or learn to forgive yourself, this book provides manageable and applicable tools that are easy to understand, specific and evidence based, and accessible enough to incorporate into your day to day.
Please bring your own book and a notebook to each session.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy or DBT is a type of therapy that’s super helpful for people who struggle with managing their emotions and behaviors. Basically, it helps you learn how to accept yourself and your life as it is, while also figuring out how to change the things that aren’t working for you. It’s like a toolkit for dealing with tough emotions, situations and relationships. Alongside the support and fellowship of others, we are hosting a 6-session group process that aims to help individuals with self-discovery, and a positive shift in emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. This empowering and supportive community is designed for individuals seeking to enhance their emotional well-being, reshape their perceptions of daily life, and cultivate meaningful connections.
How does DBT work?
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a comprehensive and evidence-based approach that combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with mindfulness principles. It is particularly effective for those navigating challenges such as mood disorders, personality disorders, and difficulties in managing emotions.
What can I expect?
In our DBT group, you’ll find a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals come together to learn and practice valuable skills that can be integrated daily for self-regulation. This group is going to be led by Amy Narusas, an experienced and compassionate licensed clinical social worker who has years of experience with teaching DBT principles.
The sessions cover six essential modules:
Intro to DBT
Upon signing up, a Happy Hour representative will reach out to you in order to ensure that this group is the right fit for you.
Guided Meditation at the Frist
Select Thursdays | 6 – 7 pm
Join us on select Thursday nights as we lead a meditation practice in Frist Art Museum‘s galleries. Calm your mind as you are guided through unique meditations inspired by one of their current exhibitions.
Participants will also receive admission to the Frist and be provided with a meditation cushion or stool for relaxation. Bring along a journal for reflections on self-discovery questions posed following the meditation. This opportunity engages the senses for a deeper reflection on yourself and the world around you, altering your expectations of what a grounding meditation experience can look and feel like.
Sound + Energy: Mind Body Reset

Kim’s gentle and skilled touch will pair with the meditative sounds of the instruments to deepen your sense of relaxation, promote healing from within and allow you to unlock a new level of serenity and well-being.
