Dream Seed: A Shamanic Sound Journey with Guest Ben Harris & Juan Carlos Arkawa

  • Golden Drum 97 Green St Brooklyn, NY, 11222 United States

Dream Seed is a two-hour sound bath hosted by members of Golden Drum and Didge Project. Shamanic chanting, mantras, overtone singing, Native American songs, indigenous music, didgeridoos, crystal singing bowls, bells, gongs, harmoniums, tuning forks and other overtone-emitting instruments are used to create an environment conducive to deep relaxation and inward investigation. Participants are led through guided meditations and sound healing practices designed to harmonize body, mind and spirit.

Yoga mats and blankets are provided but we invite people to bring their own blankets if they wish to be more comfortable. We recommend that people arrive 15 to 30 minutes early to claim their spots, especially if they are coming with friends and would like to be next to each other.

Cost: $20 at the door.

*** We do not take reservations and all tickets are given on a first come first serve basis. ***
