SoundBath: a horizontal concert 3/3

SoundBath: Peter Blum, Steve Gorn, Thomas Workman, Naaz Hosseini


“…such a unique and wonderful experience – one I will not forget.  I am not sure where I went during all the amazing sounds but I felt so relaxed and like I had been on vacation somewhere, somehow.”

SoundBath with Peter Blum, Steve Gorn, Thomas Workman, and Naaz Hosseini is a unique concert/meditation event that creates a “sonic bath” or “field of sacred sound”. You are encouraged to experience this horizontally – lying on blankets or yoga mats and allowing the other-worldly sounds to guide you into deep contemplative states. Seating is available, if you prefer.

Naaz and Peter have been presenting meditative sound concerts for nearly two decades, and have recorded two CD’s together – “Pulse Field” in 2002 and “Singing Bowls and One” in 2004. Peter is known for his work with sacred singing metals.  Performances feature his collection of over 30 Himalayan singing bowls, large gongs, tingshas, Sabian singing bells, as well as tamboura, flutes, Moyo drum and hand percussion. Joined by Naaz’s exquisite vocals and violin music, their sounds are  complemented by the virtuoso dreams of Steve Gorn’s bansuri flutes and clarinet along with the ancient and future indigenous healing instruments of Thomas Workman.

Thomas Workman is certified and active as a Sound Healer. He leads healing sessions with groups and individuals.

“Sound healing can quickly align brain waves and regulate respiratory and other systems, while at the same time presenting teachings gathered in deep inner awareness,” says Workman. “Long before I began formally studying sound healing, I was drawn to instruments with deep roots in ancient shamanic healing traditions. They called to me, and became my teachers: didjeridu, conch shells, bone and bamboo and wooden flutes, Siberian jaw harps, extended vocal techniques and more. I discovered that some traditional sounds and instruments carry healing intention inherently.”
