Fort Ritchie Community Center to offer free sound therapy

August 22, 2013

CASCADE, Md. — Fort Ritchie Community Center and Moonshadow Harp and Sound Therapy are partnering to offer a free monthly program to help area residents unwind and get their groove back.

Lynda Kuckenbrod leads a therapeutic experience that invites attendees to relax or meditate to the sounds of singing bowls and other relaxation-inducing instruments.

Fort Ritchie’s campus is ideal for the program as it offers a resort-like setting nestled in the mountains and overlooking twin lakes less than 10 minutes from Fairfield, Pa., Smithsburg, Waynesboro, Pa., and Emmitsburg, Md., according to a news release.

Kuckenbrod is a certified clinical harpist, vibro-acoustic harp therapy practitioner, certified holistic sound healer, recording artist and speaker.

She is available for events, but also offers harp parties, group and private lessons, and Hospice music.

Her Quincy, Pa., home offers a private therapy studio.

The sound therapy sessions are free and open to the public the third Monday of each month from 7 to 7:45 p.m. in the meeting space.

Donations to the center are accepted but not required. Comfortable clothes are suggested, and participants can utilize the center’s yoga mats or bring their own.

Chairs also are available, and the center is handicap-accessible.

Yoga is offered before the session at 6 p.m. at a cost of $3 for members and $7 for nonmembers for those wishing to extend their wellness experience.

RSVP for sound therapy is requested but not required and can be directed to Kirsten Hubbard by calling 301-241-5085 or sending an email to khubbard@thefrcc.org
