About this Event

Teletextile Sound Bath Sunday Series:

Pamela Martinez of Teletextile holds space with sonic meditation as a time to tune into your higher self. These meditations happen on the second to last Sunday of most months. $20 Suggested Donation. Pay via eventbrite ticket to hold your spot or we also take donations at the door via venmo and cash. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds, but we do only have limited spot available(20). We are a safe space for marginalized members of LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and disabled communities. Please contact Pamela at [email protected] to inquire about work study and exchanges.

Please plan to stay for the whole hour and we often go a little longer. Bring a mat or blanket to lie down on, chairs available for those who prefer to sit. (The floor is concrete and body temperatures tend to drop during meditation.) Come at 3:45 to get comfortable and grab a spot. The Sound Bath Meditation will start sharply at 4:00pm. Doors will be locked at 4:05pm (This is an adult workshop, accompanied minors may join with request and approval on an individual basis.)

About Teletextile Sound Bath:

Participants of the Sound Bath can expect to be lulled into deep relaxation using the sounds of singing bowls, gong, harmonium, vocals, and other sound sources to provide a meditative and healing environment while seated in a chair or more traditionally lying down on the ground. (Please bring your own yoga mats for lying down, we will have some blankets available or bring your own.)

Sound Bath Benefits:

The body needs time to relax and rejuvenate. Research has confirmed that even listening to certain music can effectively and rapidly elicit the relaxation response and bring about chemical, hormonal, and cellular change that actively promotes healing. When our parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated [via our vagus nerve] by soothing sounds, we are sending a message of calm and relaxation to every part of our body. So when we say that something is “music to our ears,” it’s actually so much more. It’s a massage for every organ in the body. (Silvia Nakkach, Free Your Voice)

More about Pamela Martinez:

Pamela Martinez is a reiki master, educator, multi-instrumentalist and composer who creates music and immersive experiences under the moniker Teletextile. Her “Bjork-like" sound (The Boston Globe) moves from vocal layering and “electronic wizardry” (Metronome Magazine) to “dense, stormy guitar, piano and electronics" (Time Out New York). Martinez has toured extensively in the US, Europe, the UK and Asia. As a genre-hopping performer and musician, Martinez has performed violin at Carnegie Hall with a Carnatic Indian music ensemble, sang in San Francisco's historic Fillmore Theater and takes part in performance art happenings in New York City. Her recent directing and performing credits include Whisperlodge. The New York Times dubbed Whisperlodge “an unusual mix of theater and therapy” and has been featured in BuzzFeed, The Atlantic, Netflix, Vice and more with acclaim. Martinez creates new work with the Teletextile Ritual Arts Ensemble a group of rotating collaborators that weave together a tapestry of music, movement, reiki and other healing rituals to create a mixture of performance and spiritual practice. Martinez holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Berklee College of Music in Boston and specializes in creating works of deep listening, sound baths and sonic expressions and passes on the craft of music and wellbeing by teaching and leading workshops at Southtown Music Studio (SATX) located in Mercury Project Contemporary Art Space.
