February 24 in Lexington, MA: Sound Journey
Saturday, February 24, 2018 7:30pm – 9pm
Admission: Free Will Offering
First Parish Church
7 Harrington Road,
In this evening experience, set in a dynamic, meditative environment, you are invited to connect with your intentions, both for yourself and for the world, and to let them take flight using the transformative power of sound. Layered textures of the human voice, cello, and percussion will weave a tapestry of music and mantra. At the beginning of the evening, we'll come together as a community, singing together and sharing our intentions. We'll raise the intensity, and then you'll be invited to settle into a comfortable position to meditate in a darkened, candle-lit environment as a concert of expansive music and textures unfolds.
