FOR YOUR WATCHLIST

Sound Bath by Lavender Suarez | Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist

SOUND BATH BY LAVENDER SUAREZ

Meditate with sound healing practitioner, artist, and educator Lavender Suarez in this sound bath inspired by the recent exhibition Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist. The visionary symbolist artist depicted the spiritual reality she experienced in moments of meditative stillness. For Pelton, art was a discipline through which she gave form to her vision of a higher consciousness.
