Sound Meditation

Friday, Apr 5, 2019 4 – 5 pm

1740 W. Webster Ave.
Chicago, IL 60614

Join musicians Jay Taylor and Arianne Urban in the serene PAGODA RED gallery for a unique experience in sound.

Find a comfortable seat, sit back, and listen as Jay and Arianne utilize the powerful and subtle vibrations of a gong, crystal singing bowls, and viola to support you in relaxing your body, calming your mind, and releasing stress.

Arrive at 5:00pm for a brief explanation of how vibrations interact with the body. The meditation itself will take place from 5:10-5:50. An energy exchange (donation) is recommended.

Jay Taylor is a musician and urban farmer. As a special education teacher in Chicago for the past 10 years, Jay understands that he must meet each person he works with right where they are in their consciousness. Through the use of the gong, crystal bowls, shakers, voice, and guitar, Jay takes participants on a Sound Voyage that results in the total relaxation of the physical body, re-tuning of the energetic body, and the release of accumulated heavy energy.
