Join us for a soothing, deeply relaxing, and immersive Sound Meditation led by Bowl Master and Meditation DJ Daniel Lauter. Daniel uses exquisite crystal bowls, crystal gongs, Tibetan and Himalayan bells, rain sticks, Ocarina, ambient soprano saxophone, and other objects d’sound during this one-of-a-kind experience. You’ll receive an amazingly meditative sound bath and deep relaxation mindfulness meditation that will melt away your stress and leave you calmer, recharged and your mind clear and vibrant.
LOOK & LOOK AGAIN We encourage you to scroll through the galleries before and after the meditation. In your relaxed and introspective state you open yourself up to seeing new things in the work and you might even find a deeper meaning.
