For the past year I have been in the process of reinventing my life, revisiting ideas and beliefs, and clearing the way for whatever is next. Part of the journey has been participating in a personal/professional development program focused on leadership. One of the outcomes is a community project.
I have been living in Asheville for almost 4 years, it is truly stunning as far as the eye can see, mountains, wide open skies, and spectacular sunsets. A tourist hub with no shortage of things to do, yet even in our beloved city of open minded people of all kinds, we are still walking around looking at our phones, missing the beauty of this sacred area, and each other.
The Lucid Sound Project was created to interrupt that for a time. The event will take place at Reuter Terrace at Pack Square Park, where we can put our phones down for a while and appreciate each other, this beautiful city, and we can be at peace with strangers, and ourselves.
Sound can carry a participant effortlessly into a deep place of stillness to ease stress, anxiety, and physical pain.
A sound meditation is simply a meditation facilitated by sound with instruments such as singing bowls, gongs, shakers, rain sticks, frame drums, and didjeridoo. Participants are free to come and go, stand, sit or lie down. Sound allows a turning inward, without words or instruction.
The Lucid Sound Project experiences are free of charge. Donations are welcome and appreciated, but not mandatory. Becoming a patron through Patreon (a membership platform supporting sustainable income for creators) is another way to support the project so that we can continue to grow and bring it to more and more communities.
The ultimate vision is to fund The Lucid Sound Project so that it can be provided for free to high stress communities like prisons, rehab centers, hospitals, public housing communities, and more, locally and beyond.
