Sound Immersion Meditation
Saturday, September 25 – 10:30 AM & 2:00 PM
Kalamazoo Valley Museum Planetarium
“In a sound immersion experience, we leave behind the mind, and leaving behind the mind is meditation.” – inspired by Kabir.
Come to the Kalamazoo Valley Museum Planetarium, let go for a little while “under the stars”, and feel the effects of ancient sound instruments on your mind, body and spirit. Leave feeling a deep peace and calm.
In this sound immersion experience, Tibetan bowls, crystal bowls, tuning forks and other sound instruments will be used to help a busy mind down-shift to relaxation, meditation and deep state healing. No previous experience in music or meditation is necessary.
There will be two 45-minute sessions available: 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM.
The program will be led by Judy Huxmann, a Kalamazoo-based sound therapist and a retired massage therapist/yoga instructor; and Julie Chase, owner of Wind Willow Sound Health, LLC, a sound therapy business in Portage. Judy and Julie are on the Board of Directors for Wind Willow Consortium, a Michigan nonprofit dedicated to educating the community on the benefits of sound therapy.
This event is co-sponsored by the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.
Event admission is free, but pre-registration is required. Please note: Face coverings are required for all visitors over the age of two regardless of vaccination status.
September 23 update: Both sessions are full! If you would like to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellations, please email your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
