Week 9: MindTravel, Transcending from the Physical to the Meta-physical
"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." - Albert Einstein
What did I do:
Time travel used to be something you only read about in science fiction books. But with the theory of relativity and the advancements in the union of science and spirituality, it may very well become a reality in our life time. Until then, we can all dabble in MindTravel.
This week I attended by friend Murray Hidary’s MindTravel silent concert at Santa Monica Pier. MindTravel brings together Murray’s passions for contemporary classical music, visual arts, theoretical physics and wisdom traditions.
Who was with me:
I was joined by 7 of my close friends along with the rest of audience. We camped out in front of Casa Del Mar on our blankets and weathered the unpredictable winds while fully embodying the transformative music.
What did I learn:
Murray is fully committed to the show. At some point the winds knocked down his equipment and picked up a lot of sand. But this didn’t stop Murray, he pushed through and leaned into the music even more which was very inspiring to watch. He has a unique ability to improvise the performance, creating classical compositions in the moment. It was also the first time I learned of binaural beats, an interference pattern between two sounds of slightly different frequencies used by artist as a meditation enhancing technique.
Would I do this again:
Murray is expanding the way he shares his music. Next on the list is to create a MindTravel experience underwater. I can’t wait to give that a try.
