Sacred Music Sessions Upcoming Events
Finding the Flow State with Ryan Herr
A Sublime Movement Session with Live Music,
Saturday July 20th, 8:00 – 10:00 pm
Many of us are familiar with what is called the “Flow State”. A state in which the analytical mind can slow down, become more quiet, and the somatic wisdom of our body is able to better guide our experience.
Join Instrumentalist/DJ/Producer, Ryan Herr, for a moving meditation. We will explore a word free space together as we practice the art of getting out of our own way through the use of improvisational music and movement.
“Ryan Herr’s Movement Sessions creates a space where uncommon
experiences occur, a mystery that carries us on an uncharted journey together”
All proceeds go to the artists at the Sacred Music Sessions house concerts.
