Throughout India, it is thought that the new moon and full moon are especially auspicious times for reflection—a time of contemplation on both our inner nature, as well as our interaction with the natural world. To honor this tradition, on the Sunday closest to each new moon this fall, the Arts at the Armory in collaboration with Emily Murphy Kaur & Harmeet Singh will hold space for a monthly special event: New Moon Gong Meditation with Mantra.
This experience will include:
• Settling the body to bring awareness to the breath;
• Pranayama to deepen the breath;
• Mantra meditation to focus the mind;
• A reflective exercise to cultivate positive habits and align our inner experience with the external world; and finally a deeply relaxing gong bath to close out the night.
