Sound bath Meditation
About the Event
To mark the 2nd anniversary of the murder of George Floyd, this week’s offering features a screening of the 3.5 minute video, The Fire Next Time, with an introduction by the film’s creator, Brian Gonzelez. Using a voice over from James Baldwin’s now legendary 1969 conversation with Dick Gregory in London entitled “Baldwin’s Ni**er” about the lineage of his name and the Black experience in America, this work casts a shadow form the past to the present, reminding us that there is still a deep chasm of misunderstood histories, false beliefs, and violent lies that keep authoritarian targets on people of color.
Sound bath meditation uses resonant, soothing sounds to deeply relax the body on a cellular level. As the waves of sound move through you, your body gets an energy reset, the vibrations shifting everything back to alignment like a good stretch. The practice can help you access your peace, focus, confidence, gratitude, and maybe even joy — while helping you let go of everything that’s the opposite.
