Thematic instillations clinging to the dirty yellow coated sweating wall

rock bottom

i carry it
metaphorically
metamorphically

associate objects
of past moments
i keep them with me

it’s heavy
not easy
a real physicality to burden

i’m a rickshaw puller, carrying this past
this past, the passenger
sitting passive, stagnant
beauty built on being fluid, now rigid

we are sad arthritic hands, wishing for our looser days
and wasting what movement we have left
desiring what we once had

we can’t have what we had

we make anew

leaving messages

what kind of life?

we don’t mind if you’re new or old to noise or meditation.
if you’re curious to be engaged, to open yourself to new experiences and to hear some noise, then join us.

practice is a series of  group meditations using noise to induce different transcendental states of awareness and being. this meditative noise series was inspired by the theories underpinning sound healing and brain entrainment. research has shown that sound frequencies can impact physical phenomena to the point of transforming the molecular structure of matter.  from this spring board, sound healers were interested in how the natural vibrations of the body are affected by the frequencies of sound. it has been seen that certain frequencies encourage different experiential states, such as divinity, balance, and focus, among others. the solfeggio scale, a 6-tone scale that was used in Gregorian chants is tuned to frequencies that are known to alter states and induce a connected sense of spirituality. in addition,  research on brainwave entrainment theory has gathered substantial evidence showing that brainwaves, which correspond with our mental states as well as our vigilance to consciousness, are influenced by rhythms, pulsations and specific frequencies. thus through sound, we can alter our cognitive and emotional states and we can bend our sense of reality.

wanting to know for ourselves, practice is a serial investigation of the transcendental properties of different frequencies and rhythms. each session features a noise artist, who, informed by their own knowledge of sound and the principles of transformative frequencies, creates a meditative set intended to experiment with the possibility of altering the state of listeners. but we cannot do this alone. join us  and explore your own awareness of noise, space and being.

what to expect:
each session will be different, but will have noise, a guide, a sitting area and a hope that you will engage in listening in an open, meditative, exploratory way.

the series.

A man on a plane told me that he preferred the west because the twilight lasted longer. I understood what he meant but I think I prefer the sunlight as long as possible.
