What does the experience do? (Closed by default)
The experience immerses your body in sound. Sound installation is a great example of immersion. All of those things encompassed into one and it’s sensory deprivation, all you have is feel.
Why is it called the electric shaman? (Open by default)
Somatic – bodily (!) Psychoacoustics
Is religion involved?
Music is religion. We do not impose any belief system other than that one. We believe anyone can have a religious experience, with or without a diety being involved.
What is involved in a sound immersion?
You will lie on your back on a space designed for feeling cozy and comfortable.
A pair of headphones will be placed on your head and three to five custom speakers (?) placed on your body, with the primary focus being your core and the palms of your hands. The facilitator will not touch you directly.
After you are set up, you will be left alone for a few minutes to close your eyes, breathe deeply, and relax. Your session will now begin.
During this time you will be fully immersed in music and vibration for a period of time.
You may end the session at any time.
After the music has ended, you will potentially feel deeply relaxed or in a trance-like state and may need five to fifteen minutes to return to a normal state of consciousness.
It is best to keep your eyes closed and remain still, as the aural and somatic effects often continue even after the music ends.
You will continue to lie down during this period until the facilitator returns in about 5 minutes time. We will gently remove the transducers and headphones. You will then get up slowly and be guided to a mellow space to contemplate your journey.
What happens when I arrive?
You will have a few minutes to sit down and un-wind, you and the facilitator will talk and answer any of your questions.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably. You will be clothed during the session, but will be asked to remove heavy clothing, obstructive jewelry and shoes. You will have an opportunity to disrobe and change in private, if needed.
