Sound Bath with Samer Ghadry
Friday, May 13, 2022
7:30 PM–9:00 PM Sold Out
Learn to listen to sound like never before with sound healing practitioner Samer Ghadry. In this sound session, inspired by principles established in the Rubin Museum’s Mandala Lab, Samer Ghadry cultivates an environment where he guides the sound bather to listen without judgment, whether it’s the sound generated by the instruments or by your neighbor’s shifting position. As the experience unfolds, you will begin to understand what it takes to listen with attention and focus on the whole being. Building this skill helps prevent us from getting caught up in distraction. True relaxation can then follow.
Yoga mats and cushions are provided.
About Samer Ghadry
Samer Ghadry is a Brooklyn-based musician and sound healing practitioner with over 26 years experience. He combines a multicultural upbringing, more than 20 years of world/improvisational music study and performance, and an array of droning and over-toning instruments to create immersive listening environments. Ghadry was a consultant on the Rubin’s Mandala Lab and is quoted in the New York Times saying, “It holds within it both the wrathful and the peaceful aspects of healing. It is like a sonic manifestation of inner awakening.”
