About the Event
Sound Bath & Breath Session - Bathroom Renovation Project Fundraiser for the Friends of New Troy Community Center
Friends of New Troy Community Center is located in Harbor Country's New Troy, Michigan. Over 15 towns in the area use this center for events and community related functions.
After 14 years of events, fundraisers, donations, and rental/membership fees, Friends of New Troy Community Center (FONT) recently paid off the $240,000 mortgage on the former school. Now, members say, it’s time to improve the facility — starting with the bathrooms.
Anyone who’s visited the Center knows improvements are badly needed. Built for elementary students in 1952, the bathrooms feature tiny toilets and low, trough-style sinks. Lighting is poor and ceilings are deteriorating.
Quotes obtained from local contractors and suppliers indicate the cost to replace toilets, sinks, lighting and ceilings in the four bathrooms will be more than $46,000. Infant changing stations and handicapped accessible stalls are included in the plans.
To make the dream a reality, FONT is pursuing grants and planning fundraisers.
SkyBird Yoga instructor, Elizabeth Nuti, who teaches classes in the Center 5 days a week, has generously volunteered to kick off the campaign with a Sound Bath, with all proceeds to be donated to the Bathroom Renovation Project.
Other fundraisers and grant applications are also on tap. But it’s a big project, and FONT needs your help to make this idea a reality. Everyone in the Community will benefit once the Center has bathrooms that are modern, fully functional and ADA compliant.

What is a Sound Bath?
A sound meditation, or a sound journey. It's a healing experience through sound: crystal bowls, gongs, bells... The sound bath experience is about letting the sound take you to a deeper place making it easier to arrive in a relaxed state without complicating how to get there. Sound baths are a great way to get "in tune" with yourself, and many people turn to them for stress relief.
The experience begins with each person lying down on a comfortable mat with an eye pillow. Elizabeth will be your guide for a 30 minute transformational breath session with the remainder of the experience filled with different live sounds and frequencies being introduced in succession.
The purpose, and our collective goal, is to induce relaxation and explore personal healing and inquiry.
PLEASE BRING something comfortable on which to lie, including: a yoga mat or camping pads, a blanket, pillow if you like and water bottle
Suggested donation: $25
