Dream Seed is a sound healing ensemble created by members of Golden Drum, Sacred Arts Research Foundation, Pink Sun 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. Some blankets and yoga mats will be provided but we encourage people to come with extra padding just in case there isn't enough for everyone.
Members of Dream Seed are active organizers of the Golden Drum and the Sacred Arts Research Foundation communities. They are students of Maestro Manuel Rufino, a recognized Taino elder, spiritual guide and ceremonial leader. With his blessing, Dream Seed was created as a vehicle with which to share the music of sacred traditions of the world.
Their affiliations include Made in Prayer, Pink Sun, Brooklyn Light, Jungle Cafe and Didge Project.
They have spent over 7 years in a deep study in Brooklyn, NY cultivating their art, music and programs through their practices and disciplines.
Special Guest: Jarrod Byrne Mayer
Jarrod Byrne Mayer is a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor and Brooklyn based musician,writer, and artist. His music is a reflection of his inner vision and experience through Kundalini and survival arts. His music is a meditation in itself where others join in unconsciously, bringing listeners into a single state where the experience is shared and group consciousness expanded.
Jarrod has studied with master survivalist Tom Brown Jr. in the pine barrens of south New Jersey and believes a connection with the earth and nature is essential to expanding within the infinite. The earths magic is in plain sight yet we must expand our consciousness and awareness to look beyond what we see and read the language of the earth.
Jarrods key principle he brings to the teachings is giving the students the tools to change the story they have been told and writ for themselves. The deconstruction and boundary dissolution of illusionary walls expands the self into a greater sense of well being. He wants students to uplift the veil of maya and see life for what it is, a miracle and a blessing. He’s married to Melody and they have two cats.
