ELEVATE: A Sound Meditation and Healing Experience
This meditative sound experience will be a unique immersion in healing sounds with the intention of elevating our collective vibration. Blending ancient and contemporary tools, Chicago based singer and sound guide, Davin Youngs, uses his voice through electronic looping devices, crystal singing bowls, tuning forks and other overtone-emitting instruments to transport participants to a place of restoration and elevation. What makes this journey truly special is the subtle emergence of electronic beats and music that reflects the wonder and beauty of the universe and the unique light within each person present. To participate is only to receive. $25 /Pre-register. $30/Day of the event.

Location

Here’s how to find us at IX

Park in one of the small lots on the side of the building across from the art park (not the news complex side). Look for a big sculpture of an upside down man on the roof. Walk all the way down the outdoor corridor under the sculpture. Enter the building through the double glass doors. The studio is the first biz on the left after you enter the building. The door says M3 and Opal’s sign is down a little lower in the window.
