Sounds for a Calm Mind: Meditation with Magnetic Sound Bath

An immersive meditative listening experience with magnetic sound bath to calm the mind

Tranquil sounds from magnetic energy provide an immersive meditative listening experience for relaxation, contemplation, and clarity. Created by sound artist and creative technologist MJ Caselden, magnetic sound bath creates mantra-like vibrations that help you find deep states of rest.

The benefits of sound bath meditation have been reported to relax brain-wave patterns, lower heart rate, reduce stress and pain, and relieve anxiety, as reported in The New York Times. Participants of our sound baths have experienced deep relaxation that created an awareness of passing thoughts, memories, and visions.

During the meditation, participants will also enjoy a complimentary aromatherapy experience by Christina Daigneault, founder of Orchard Aromatherapy and co-author of forthcoming book, Plant-Powered Beauty (BenBella Books, 2018). 

Magnetic Sound has grown to include collaboration with tech companies such as INTEL and has been featured in art and meditation spaces around the world, including the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Times Square Alliance.
