Raga & Meditation at the House of Intuition – August 31, 2014

Join Will Marsh (sitar) and Robin Sukhadia (tabla) for a special evening of Raga and Meditation at the House of Intuition on August 31, 2014.

 

The evening’s sonic spiritual journey will begin with an opening Chakra meditation led by Robin Sukhadia. This meditation will ground the listener and open the Crown chakra to the universe’s divine creativity. Will and Robin will then present a north Indian raga on sitar and tabla. North Indian classical music is an ancient body of wisdom that invokes the divine through sacred melodic and rhythmic improvisations. We aim to create an atmosphere where both audience and performer can be most receptive to the healing power of music and raga to cleanse and tune our spirits, bodies and chakras. This opportunity to receive the blessings of a timeless musical lineage is not to be missed!
