August 18, 2016 at Saint Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco.
Why is August 18th so auspicious?
It’s a Full Moon.
It’s a Lunar Eclipse.
It’s our opportunity, in these chaotic times, to ground in calm.
**Tickets go on sale on 3pm on Wednesday, August 10th**
We’re going to make this event a bit smaller than last month, to give everyone more room.

‘The Holistic Chamber of Sound’ is a beautiful concert that brings you into a deep state of meditation. This is a time for our community to come together and refresh, take a break from the hectic summer pace and bathe ourselves in loving vibes.
Our evening will feature 38″ Paiste gongs, over two dozen huge crystal singing bowls, Tibetan bronze bowls, shamanic drums, hang drums, Native American flutes, Koshi chimes, Tingshe chimes, bells, and more.
During the event, participants lie down and are bathed head to toe in sound— it’s a very hypnotic, ethereal experience.
You will come away with a clear mind, and a deeper appreciation for the wonder of sound. We strongly recommend this event for people who have trouble meditating, or feel like they just “can’t get there.” Give this a try :).
Sound Meditation SF promotes the ancient healing practice of sound work as a way to affect physical health and conscious awareness.
Tickets will be available on August 10th. Our events tend to sell out quickly, so we recommend signing up to get an alert by e-mail at http://www.soundmeditationsf.com/

You can wear anything that’s comfortable. Bring a bottle of water because that’s always a good idea.
We recommend bringing:

Our events do get full, and we do encourage people to get close to one another. That being said, you’re always free to claim more personal space 🙂

Activates Higher States of Consciousness
Unlocks Blocked Emotions
Relieves Anxiety and Stress
Induces Complete Relaxation
Promotes Deep Meditation
Improves Ability to Concentrate
Normalizes Blood Pressure
Relieves Physical Pain
Release Emotional Trauma
