Ancilla College will host a book signing on Monday, March 14th with author Dr. Rev. Sam Boys, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Ancilla.
The signing – held in Room 231 at 6:00 p.m. EST – will promote the release of his book, entitled “An Ancient Sound for the Present Moment” and is a free event open to the public.
The book explores the health benefits of breath and sound and how playing the didgeridoo can help clear the mind and relax the body.
Boys will also share methods of relaxation with those in attendance, including the use of breathing techniques to help relieve stress and facilitate wellness.
The didgeridoo is a wind instrument finding its origins with the Indigenous Australians of northern Australia and its use dates back as far as 20,000 years.
“Personally, I’ve received some personal health benefits from playing the didgeridoo and doing these breathing meditations,” said Boys. “These have been effective methods of helping me to relax after a long, stressful day. It clears my head. They have also been proven to help with anxiety, promote a good night’s sleep, and help people to stop smoking.
“I’m not looking to be a millionaire. I just want to share what I’ve discovered with other people. Perhaps it will help others as well.”
Copies of the book will be on sale for $15. Those in attendance will also be able to get a sneak peek into his upcoming CD, “Breathing Meditations and Healing Sounds”. Copies of the CD will also be for sale for $10.
