The Conduit Center

The Sound Lounge is a designated space to offer attendants and artists a place to rest and recuperate away from the high stimulation of a festival event. In the Sound Lounge we offer sound journeys which is live performing of calming sounds for meditation. We at the Conduit have a studio where we have honed this technique for stress and relaxation, and what we offer at the festival is a modified version of that for the attendants. Through the sounds, participants experience deep healing and inner journeying, which is both rejuvenating and relaxing. We find that the practice complements yoga and other modalities being pursued at the festival.
