into sound, space, + light
"The Integratron is an acoustically perfect tabernacle + energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert..."
YHBHS is traveling to the Integratron this weekend to gaze at the Perseid Meteor Shower Star Party... An annual benefit for the Mojave Desert Land Trust sponsored by Joshua Tree National Park Association. I've got a booking for the Sound Bath at 9 a.m and a schedule of events planned for this desert getaway. Any opportunity I have to drive into the desert sun, I'm game! Also coming up in October, High Desert Test Sites weekend.....
"HDTS returns this fall for a weekend of new experimental art, architecture, and design projects sited in the Southern California high desert. Curators the McCarthy Family, Robert Stone, and Brooks Hudson Thomas have invited an exciting group of emerging and established artists, architects, and designers to create new works for HDTS 2011."
What is the Sound Bath?
"The Sound Bath is a 30-minute sonic healing session that you can experience while resting comfortably in the Integratron's highly resonant, multi-wave sound chamber. We play a series of quartz crystal singing bowls live, each one keyed to the energy centers or chakras of the body, where sound is nutrition for the nervous system.
Imagine lying on comfy mats in the center of this relaxing and resonant high-energy field, while having your body bathed in exquisite sound for 30 minutes. The results are waves of peace, heightened awareness, and relaxation of the mind and body. "
"George Van Tassel, creator of the Integratron, was a legendary figure, an aeronautical engineer and test pilot who worked for Lockheed, Douglas Aircraft and alongside Howard Hughes at Hughes Aviation . He was also one of the leaders in the UFO movement who held annual "Spacecraft Conventions" at Giant Rock for 25 years. Van Tassel said UFO channelings and ideas from scientists such as Nikola Tesla led to the unique architecture of the Integratron. He spent 18 years constructing the building."
