Interdimensional Sonic Sound Meditation 7/7

Interdimensional Sonic Sound MeditationInterdimensional Sonic Sound Meditation with Music of the Plants…

When Peter Blum and Naaz Hosseini first started performing their unique sonic meditation events almost 20 years ago, the concept along with terms like “sound bath”, “gong bath”, or “singing bowl bath” was not well known. Now, it has become a fairly popular activity for the spiritual, or new age community. Over the past decade, Peter and Naaz’s sound baths have included a number of stellar musicians. Using the names “Soundshifter” or “Pulse Field”, this group has performed at numerous yoga studios, yurts, churches, and healing centers.

On Friday, July 7, starting at 7 p.m., the quartet of Peter, Naaz, Steve Gorn, and Evry Mann will be collaborating with Stable Gate Dharma Collective at Stable Gate Farm and Winery in Castleton-on-Hudson.

We will have an extra special treat. At some point before, during, or after we bathe you with sound, we will be listening to the plants sing with Dror B. Ashuah.

Music of the plants is a form of expression, beauty and artistry like no other. Using a device made just for the plant world with a patented technology created by Damanhur community that transforms the biorhythm (electromagnetic potential) of the plants and trees into a musical performance to listen to and interact with.

This event will be held in the Lodge on site and as always will probably end with a fire pit and drum circle outside afterwards.

The intention of our sound healing performances is to create a “sonic bath” or “field of sacred sound”’. Participants are encouraged to experience a “horizontal concert” lying on blankets or yoga mats and allow the other-worldly sounds to guide them into deep contemplative states suitable for healing and visions.

This post 2012 version of the sound bath has evolved and draws from diverse influences, including the free jazz improvisations of the 60’s, experimental and “new” music of the 70’s, and the emergence of “world music” in the 80’s and 90’s, along with global traditions of sonic meditations. The sounds that emerge are always fresh and spontaneous – responding to the vibrations of the audience, as well as the acoustics and feng shui of the specific performance space.

“We stand at a very interesting point in history,” says Peter. “We are at the seam where the ʻmagicʼ of shamans and healers of ancient cultures and wisdom traditions is being joined with the latest discoveries in ʻscienceʼ. Throughout history, traditional healers and visionaries from all indigenous people have used vibrations – specifically the audible vibrations of sound and music, to summon spirit and facilitate healing and guidance.”

There is a $25 suggested donation. For more information, or to pre-register, call (518) 265-5133 or go to the Stable Gate Farm Facebook page.
