a musical and relaxing ‘sonic cleanse’

Sound bathing with didgeridoos and gongs in Camden Amphitheatre

Event has passed

CAMDEN — There are two more opportunities to experience community sound bathing in the Camden Amphitheatre this summer. On Sunday, July 17, and Monday, July 25, at 6 p.m., sound therapist Jim Doble and didgeridoo musician Forest Weston will use a variety of resonant instruments to create soothing waves of sound.

Sound bathing is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound. It is often classified as a wellness practice. Many who have participated in Doble’s sound baths claim that the gongs, chimes, singing bowls, and other instruments provide a musical and relaxing “sonic cleanse,” according to the Camden Public Library, in a news release.

Jim Doble has spent thirty years creating musical instruments, specializing in custom, experimental, and on-of-a-kind designs. He has produced several instruments for enjoyment at libraries, schools, parks, and museums. Forest Weston has been playing didgeridoo for twelve years and relishes the opportunity to play to groups in beautiful outdoor settings.

Participation in the program is by donation (optional), with a portion of the proceeds collected benefiting the Camden Public Library. Doble encourages participants to bring a blanket, yoga mat, or chair.

The public is welcome to “drop-in,” but pre-registration is encouraged so that you can be notified in case of event cancellation. Contact Doble at jim@elementaldesign.me, or call (207) 785-2212.
