“By the virtue of sound may the suffering of all sentient beings disappear!”
༄།། ཆོས་རྔ་ཆེན་པོ་སྒྲ་ཡིས་ནི།། སྡུག་བསྔལ་སེམས་ཅན་མཐར་བགྱིད་ཤོག།
** This in-person event will occur outdoors up at LMB’s Meadow Deck (near the Stupa). PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY, TO ALLOW FOR ENOUGH TIME TO HIKE UP TO THE MEADOW. You will be asked to observe the most current CDC guidelines **
What Is It?
Using sound for mental and emotional clarity can be a sacred and powerful practice. Sound Experiences have grown enormously in popularity in recent years. Different vibrational frequencies are said to resonate with different facets of the human energy field, helping to clear blockages, soothe our overtaxed nervous systems and aid in the release and expression of positive potentialities such as peace, joy, connectedness, and creativity.
What To Bring
Please bring a yoga mat (or two for more cushion – some have brought a camping mat, ie therm-a-rest), cozy blanket, and perhaps an eye pillow. We want you to have everything you need to be comfortable and relaxed as you lie down on the meadow platform or on the ground in the meadow, if you prefer, and let the soothing tones of the sound experience carry you home.
Where To Meet
Please park in the lower campus parking lot and walk up to the meadow adjacent to the white Stupa that is under construction. This is approximately a 12-15 minute walk so please arrive punctually (NO LATER THAN 20 MINUTES PRIOR TO START) you have time to head up the hill. For help with directions, you may take a photo of the map posted outside our bookstore.
About The Instructor
Originally from eastern Tibet, Kalden Kho brings a wealth of Tibetan cultural and spiritual background to his sound experience offerings. He became a monk at the age of 5 and continued his monastic studies until the age of 23, when he completed a three year retreat. He subsequently escaped to India in the winter of 2000 and joined his Tibetan community in exile, under His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. He moved to the U.S. 10 years ago. Throughout his journeys across the U.S, he has come to meet people from all walks of life. He has discovered that people more and more are seeking connection and a sense of serenity as a way to offset the stress and isolation of modern lifestyles. Despite missing his home and the deep sense of community that flourished in his country of birth, Kalden’s wish is to use his talents to create something of similar value here. He seeks to provide an experience that reflects the qualities of Tibetan cultural tradition, while also forging an innovative path forward.
