Namora is the first sound bath to be released on vinyl.  The album is designed to accompany meditation, relaxation and deep listening practices.  Suggestions for listening:  Find a comfortable place to sit or lay down.  Play and enjoy through headphones or speakers.  

Deep listening exercise:

Namora is the first sound bath to be released on vinyl.  The album is designed to accompany meditation, relaxation, creative and deep listening practices.  

Feel free to try this on your own or invite friends and family to join.  

  1. Clear all distractions  (ie: airplane mode on your phone, do not disturb sign on your door) and create a soothing environment.  

  2. Cue up Namora on your turntable.  

  3. Get comfortable.  Seated or lying down is fine.  Although you’re free to adjust your body throughout the experience, choose a position that you can be still in for about 20 minutes.

  4. Close your eyes (or cover them with your Namora eye mask) and take 3 deep breaths.  Inhale for 4 counts through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Then return to the natural breath.  

  5. Turn your attention to your listening.  Allow and accept the sounds as they are. Focus on the sound and the contrast it leaves in the room after it fades away.  

  6. Let the sounds you hear anchor you in the present moment. Try not to get caught up in judging what you hear or analyzing the sounds; just listen, observe, and experience them. If you become restless or other thoughts come in, acknowledge and allow them but do not react to them. Stick with this for one side of the record and see how your awareness has shifted from the beginning of the practice.
