Join hOm at the Columbus Museum of Art for a special Spring Equinox Sound Bath and Seasonal Celebration featuring pop-up experiences, vendors, and more with local partners honoring the great bloom of life and creativity that arrives with the Spring season.

The garden of an artist’s soul is filled with seeds of passion, imagination, and creativity. The unknowable depth of the artist’s heart breathes life into this garden where endless expressions of what it means to be alive bloom and come to life. What better place to celebrate the arrival of Spring, the season of life and creativity, than at the Columbus Museum of Art.

(Entry will no longer be permitted after 7:00 PM so as to not disrupt the sound bath)

What to Bring:

Bring what you would like to lay on during the ceremony. i.e. yoga mat, pillow, padding, blanket, etc. A blanket is encouraged because of the variability of the temperature in the room. Everyone has different preferences and we want you to be comfortable.

Bring a journal and pen so you can reflect on anything that is brought up during the ceremony or to write down any messages that come through for you. We will have a space where you can place objects you would like to be charged with the energy of the night. (please nothing large, small items preferred like crystals, jewelry, bones, etc.)

If you would like to experience the self guided audio experience composed by Jesse Cale we recommend bringing headphones, earpods, or earbuds.

What’s a Sound Bath?

A sound bath is a tranquil meditation practice that typically involves being surrounded by various sounds and vibrations created by singing bowls, gongs, chimes, and other instruments. The purpose of a sound bath is to promote relaxation, stress relief, and inner peace. Participants typically lie down or sit comfortably while the sounds and vibrations wash over them, allowing them to let go of their thoughts and distractions and sink into a state of deep relaxation and mindfulness. Some people find that the combination of different sounds and vibrations can help to balance their energy centers and improve their overall sense of well-being.

About hOm

hOm is a unique and immersive sound bath experience based out of Columbus, Ohio where modern sound therapy, traditional sound healing, and musical composition all come together providing a space for rest, relaxation, and healing. We create multi-practitioner sound healing environments using a wide range of acoustic and electronic instruments, atmospheric sound synthesis, and immersive performance to create a tranquil soundscape that washes over you to encourage a sense of safety, stillness, and relief.

Combining ancient sound healing principles and recent studies on the benefits of sound therapy, we focus on creating an experience that meets you where you are to provide what you need, from physical rest to emotional release and beyond. Sound baths are a wonderful opportunity to free yourself from the noise of the mind and tune into the song of the heart with proven health benefits of lowering stress, reducing cortisol levels, improving sleep quality, and so much more.

Potential Benefits of a Sound Bath

1. Stress and anxiety relief: The soothing sound of singing bowls can help reduce stress and anxiety levels by inducing a state of deep relaxation and calm.
2. Pain relief: The vibrations produced by singing bowls can help relieve physical pain, particularly in conditions such as headaches and migraines.
3. Improved sleep: The calming effects of singing bowls can help promote better sleep, which is important for overall physical and mental health.
4. Improved focus and concentration: The repetitive, rhythmic sounds of singing bowls can help improve focus and concentration, making it easier to meditate and achieve a state of inner calm.
