10 Hours In Seney National Wildlife Refuge

September 9, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


A Sound Installation By Member David Michael

The Aligned Center is thrilled to present this unique new addition to the experience of aligned living, brought to us by The Aligned Center Member, David Michael!

Spend an hour privately immersed in this unparalleled durational sound experience in the Center’s meditation cube; discover what unfolds alongside the rhythmic sounds of the natural world as everything else fades away.

David describes the installation as “a semi-private space, with minimal distractions, and a controlled, high fidelity sound system. Most importantly, though, it gives the audience permission to be quiet and listen. It makes the listener the subject, not the sound, which is unexpected and rather profound.”

Come experience the sound installation any weekday from September 9th – 30th, 2019, between 9:30am and 4:30pm.

It is free, and reservations may be made through this platform: https://durational.simplybook.me
