September 21 is the Fall Equinox, and a sacred turning point in the yearly calendar, when we feel a natural shift from the upward and expansive high energy of summer to the inward, gathering energy of fall. Join us for a Prana Vinyasa® practice and live sound meditation with Minneapolis musician Shaamaahs that will help your nervous system adjust to this slower pace, while enjoying the experience of entrainment and sympathetic resonance, as we come together as a community to contemplate what we are "harvesting" from our deepest intentions of 2018.
DATE: FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 21
COST: $30 IN ADVANCE // $35 DAY OF
Minneapolis musician Ron Fearing founded the solo project ShaamaahS with a desire to create a primordial sound that has the ability to engage a phenomenon called “sympathetic resonance”.
This primordial sound meditation involves Kargyraa, Dag Kargyraa Throat Singing, matched octave Chakra specific Singing Bowls, and a Shruti Box, which is performed solo and in unison.
This sound meditation uses esoteric “drone” instruments in a specific tuning that is relative to natural ratios that are seen within the natural world, our physiology, our solar system and ancient cultural paradigms. IE: Fibonacci, Phi, and Py- thagorean theorem.
Each instrument used in this meditation when combined is something that when experienced is very unique and quite powerful at each progressive level of energy body development. The goal of these sound meditations is to simply perform and provide a meditation that has the potential to relax, improve health, and/or obtain "Trance Meditation" states.
