Monday March 18 * 7pm * $5-10 suggested * RSVP

Our biweekly experiments in sound meditation continue, this week followed by music from Boston's HEALERS and DC's CONCENTRIC CIRCLES. Meditation at 7, Music at 8, Come for both, Come for either....

Join us for the next installment of our series devoted to the practice of Deep Listening, as coined/taught/enacted by the late composer Pauline Oliveros. For one hour, we will focus on sound. Listening first, with an eye (ear) toward healing, toward a collective experience more than the sum of its parts. There will be vocal and percussive sound production involved at different points. The space will be available for conversation/debriefing/relaxing afterwards. All ages welcome. No prior meditation or musical experience necessary.

HEALERS hail from Boston and play a style of drone-influenced psychfolk, combing electronics, tape loops and acoustic instruments.
