We offer a contemporary take on sound meditation drawing on field recordings, acoustic ecology, ambient music and overtone singing to provide an immersive, nurturing soundscape.
We incorporate field recordings from around Australia focusing on seasonal and geographic themes. Our sound meditations are about connecting your mind and body through relaxed, attentive listening, as well as a rediscovery and reconnection with nature and country. We aim to nurture a connection with the natural soundscapes of the delicate and fragile ecology that we are all a part of.
Our sessions are a 30 minute meditation, of live deep ambient improvisation using field recordings, synthesizers and vocals. Yoga mats and bolsters are provided to lie down on so you can feel comfortable and relaxed during the session.
As a participant, all you have to do is listen and relax into the music. If you like, you can practice a form of concentration meditation by letting everything else go, and bringing you attention back to the music whenever your mind wanders. This is conducive to deep states of relaxation and a calm mental state. It’s also fine to just lie back and take some time out–something our busy lives often do not permit. Do whatever feels right for you.
Some people can experience emotional (or even physical) challenges in sound meditation. This is a normal part of the process of unwinding and returning to being present with ourselves. Have compassion for yourself and try to be kind to whatever might bubble up. It will pass.
We recognise the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the country now known as Australia. We recognise the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin alliance as the traditional custodians of the land where we live and work. We recognise, respect and take inspiration from their deep and continuing connection to country.
