Saturday, November 5  7pm-9pm Martinis & Meditation

Saturday evening special fun and Interactive research with ISTA’s President, Don Simmons!

  • 7pm-8pm Meditation can be used for so many things in life. In a recent retreat and workshop, don-2016-v2Master Meditation teacher Don Simmons perfected, with the help of his students, the act of “Winefulness” as a practice of joyful mindfulness. Now join us taking it a step further with fun research using your drink of choice to enhance the experience of meditation and libation!  Become a Research Associate as we use tuning forks, tibetan bowls and crystal bowls to experiment with how Sound enhances taste. Will your martini, glass of wine or water taste better after applying a tuning fork? Preliminary studies have concluded it does – but more research is certainly necessary!

Come and enjoy a deep meditation as Meditation Teacher and Sound Therapist Don Simmons guides you through the magical experience of Gongs, Bells and Bowls accompanied by the Angelic Sounds of Harps and the Earthy Sounds of Shamanic Drums.
