What is Sound Healing?

Sound Healing is medicine for our times. Sound vibration, as one of our earliest developed senses, helps the body and spirit to find peace and ease with life. It facilitates relaxation using instruments like gongs, crystal singing bowls, harmonium, voice, and more. The gong especially helps to entrain the brain to the Theta brainwave state in as little as 90 seconds. The Theta state helps to activate the parasympathetic nervous system to rest and heal, reduce stress, and also helps us to realize more of our fullest potential.

All you have to do is lay back, relax, and breathe!

Testimonials

"Better than a massage. It felt like an internal wash that flushed out so much internal crap. I can still feel the healing happening (experience was 2 days ago) - I feel some healing going on in my gut still. I can also see (physically) a lot more clearly. It was also just a wonderful experience. My body was taken on a journey into a different dimension that was very safe and healing."

--Michael

"Set a new bar for me when it came to ways to relax. My body, mind, and spirit felt 100 times better after leaving. If I lived closer, I would go weekly. I but I live 6 hours away. I’ll probably get a session in every couple months. I would have paid many times more than the rate and I would have walked away happy. This place is a must for anyone looking for to recharge their mind, body and spirit."        --Luke

"If you’re looking for a little mountain magic while you’re close-by Asheville, then you have to experience The Sound of a New Dawn! I was blown away and so were all my doubts, fears, & worries with her serene sound bathing experience. Every instrument she used touched my soul and left me floating on a cloud, feeling a whole world lighter. Now that the weight is off my shoulders, I have a clear head and the future is looking promising again. You can’t put a price on the work Dawn does here, she is truly a healer. I cannot wait to book a retreat with her for my next visit and invite my mother!"    --Miranda

"This was my first experience with sound therapy and I am hooked! I found Dawn and David very welcoming and tailored the session with every individuals needs in mind. At the end of our session I had a sense of peace and calm and gained a new appreciation for this beautiful area."     --Jacqueline

About

My name is Dawn Sagonias

I have played and studied music since I was a child, then began studying biology and the brain, then massaged about 20,000 people in my massage therapy career. I first began teaching yoga and meditation in 2010 and later dove in to sound healing in 2015, eager to share the beauty of this self-exploration with others. My intention at Sound of a New Dawn is to help others find tools to support life's challenges & emotions, listen to their inner selves, and encounter relief for pain and suffering.

In January of 2022, I took a leap of faith, followed my heart and opened the Sound Nest and then created the Inner Wolf Retreat Space with my business partner David Heiss (www.starsounds.love and here).
