Meditate, create, or simply unwind…
Join sound practitioners Jimmy + Jackie for an evening of deep breathing, ethereal overtones, and a healing return to our natural state of awareness. Through attentive listening, participants are guided through a journey beyond the discursive thinking of the mind and into a clear state of PRESENCE. When daily thoughts are no longer a distraction, the residue that is left by a busy, stressful NYC is cleansed. Let this soothing release invite you back to BEING and CREATIVITY. Come to relax and let go…
To honor the space and creative inner work of others, we request that participants engage in silence throughout the meditation. There will be time at the end for sharing and discussion.
Bring items for comfort: cushion, blanket, or friend and join us for a profound dive into sound.

Jimmy Reed and Jackie Stewart Reed are certified Integrative Sound and Music Practitioners based in New York City. With a dedicated interest in the therapeutic properties of sound and meditation, they have been exploring how vibration can impact humans on both mental and physical levels. Working with harmonic overtone emitting instruments, olfactory stimuli, and focused breathwork, they invite attention away from the discursive mind, and into self-awareness. Having studied under Alexandre Tannous, their approach is based on the intersection of art, science, and spirituality. Jackie also teaches meditation at MNDFL and The Interdependence Project.
They offer sound meditations to relax and nurture our innate mind-body connection as a modality to transform consciousness and improve well-being.
"The function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought." -Sir Thomas Beecham
