LINERS
Sound bathing is often associated with exploration of spirituality and provides a healthy outlet for undisturbed introspection if we seize the opportunity to enjoy such time.

Perhaps I took the metaphor too literally but...I find it interesting that many cultures around the world view bodies of water as inherently spiritual. Something special happens when we are around them or even think about the seas, rivers and lakes we've encountered: they seem to facilitate reflection on things unseen (within our mind and in the universe around us).

In my personal practice, I often enjoy using selected bible passages to focus my mind during meditation. This method can prove useful as a kind of mirror and therefore, I viewed the initial preparatory time like one taking a moment to peer at their reflection in a deep pool just before entering it.

Eventually, I let myself 'ease into the water'. The brief opening movement invites listeners to submit to the cycle while contemplating what sounds may comes next...

my mind settled on imagery that was once a dream of mine: lazily floating on the surface of the dead sea
