Meditating with Sound

Healing through Modern and Ancient Approaches

Wednesday, August 2, 2017
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Take a journey through sound and meditation in this workshop. Did you know your brainwaves can easily sync with rhythmic music? This phenomenon is known as “brainwave entrainment,” and it has been used around the world for centuries to help people achieve meditative states. Even if you have never meditated before, the sounds in this workshop will create an immersive experience as they move in gradual waves, subtly shifting in frequency and volume to help the mind become calm and centered.

Join sound artist, healer, and educator Lavender Suarez as she demonstrates brainwave entrainment with live electronic and acoustic music composed for this purpose. Participants will experience a blend of futuristic and traditional sound healing techniques to facilitate states of relaxation and harmony in stressful modern times. Lavender has spoken about brainwave entrainment at MoMA PS1 and received a Wave Farm residency to study its healing properties.
