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 of LIGHT ON SHADOW 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. This follow-up to a previous meditation in the light gallery will take place in the dark gallery for an even deeper experience.
Daniel is a Musician, Sound Therapist, Wellness Educator and Mindfulness Instructor. He was one of the first to pioneer the experimental performance and vibrational qualities of Crystal Bowls in the United States, and has developed an extensive palette and collection of sacred sounds which he brings to his work. Daniel is also a saxophonist/composer, based in New York City and the Hamptons. Also known as Mindful Dan, Meditation DJ, Daniel has lead an internationally recognized practice, composing for global meditation and mindfulness workshops with an eclectic, world-renown roster of musicians. www.meditationdj.com.

In lieu of supporting our annual Summerfest Gala, we invite past SummerFest supporter and longtime friends of SAC to join our new 2020 Patrons Circle. Your contribution will allow us to continue SAC’s year-round programming and serve as a critical economic driver that will lead this community out of these unsure times.
