Sound therapist Jim Doble and didgeridoo musician Forest Weston plan to use a variety of resonant instruments to create soothing sound waves at two community sound baths on Sunday July 17 and Monday July 25 at the Camden Amphitheater on Atlantic Ave.
The sound bath is a meditative experience in which those present are “bathed” in sound. It is often categorized as a wellness practice. Many who have participated in Doble’s sound baths say the gongs, chimes, singing bowls and other instruments provide a musical and relaxing “sonic cleanse”, according to a press release from the Camden Public Library.
Doble has spent 30 years creating musical instruments, specializing in custom, experimental and unique designs. He produced several instruments for enjoyment in libraries, schools, parks and museums. Weston has been playing the didgeridoo for 12 years.
Participation in the program is by optional donation, with part of the profits collected going to the library. Doble encourages participants to bring a blanket, yoga mat, or chair.
The public is welcome, but registration is encouraged so attendees can be notified if the event is cancelled.
To register or for more information, contact Doble at [email protected] or 207-785-2212.
