Ron Esposito Ron Esposito will perform a concert and meditation featuring crystal and Tibetan singing bowls with kalimba and throat singing. He will give an introductory talk that will include sacred poetry from the Bhagavad Gita, Dante, the Tao Te Ching, Kabir and Thich Naht Hanh.
"I came to the singing bowls because of their purity of sound and vibration. They are like tractor beams for the mind in the way that they focus attention in the present moment. The long resonant tones shift and stack in a cloud-like movement ... thoughts going across the empty sky of mind. Much of the music is akin to sound ritual practiced in many spiritual traditions to access the inner stillness that is our core. The sound is intended for a deep listening experience…ascendance on the spiral of consciousness."
