ORIGINAL STORY HERE

Your self-care practice is about to get a lot groovier. Mickey Hart, the iconic percussionist for the Grateful Dead is on a mission to awaken and expand our consciousness beyond the concert venue. The musician is releasing a new music meditation course titled Sound Consciousness: Drones for Sonic Bathing. In collaboration with Zakir Hussain, he’s produced 10 sonic bathing experiences paired with mind-bending animations of his own artwork. The course is available on Commune, a video course platform geared towards mindful, meditative pursuits. The first five segments of the 10-day course are available on Commune for free.

“A drone is a sonic miniature of the workings of the entire universe,” says Hart. "They are not simple sounds, but rather complex sonic architecture. Drones are the key to connecting you to different veins of existence and to the fundamental physics of the universe.”

Sound Consciousness: Drones for Sonic Bathing invites participants to set aside 15 minutes per day to “travel through the vastness of their mind space, gently returning with a renewed, revised sense of self.” "This is a sonic wonderland that gets you into the moment, into the now,” Hart says. “It gets you to connect to the very center of you, the vibratory center of you."

Sound bathing appears to be all the rage among self-care enthusiasts. At a time when wellness junkies are shelling out hundred of dollars on platinum tuning forks and jade sound bath bowls, Hart’s vision of sound healing is accessible and pure.

“Music has a profound impact on the brain, and thus is also a profound method for healing,” says Hart. “This course is not only intended to bring you into the present but also as sonic medicine. You connect with the sound, and it releases you from the before and the after, which is where stress resides. From this point, you can engage more fully in life.”
