I would dare to say that the sound bath has become trendy, as it has appeared recently on many television shows and in yoga studios around the country, but it is actually an ancient art, dating back over 40,000 years.

Ancient Greeks used flutes and lyres to treat digestion and mental health, Tibetans used singing bowls for over 2,000 years for meditation purposes, and Australian aboriginal tribes played the didgeridoo to heal the sick.

The Premiere of Palmetto Bluff Farmer’s Market

I simply love everything about a Farmer’s Market. The fresh, local produce, the friendly people, dogs roaming around, the glorious scents of homecooked treats wafting through the air. It is a scene comprised of a million little pieces that fit together to create a beautiful mosaic.
