FIND YOUR FLOW
Here at Crystal/Minds headquarters
(complete with our zebra skin run named "Bom")
we developed a unique model of practice called Techno Meditation.
This practice combines guiding meditation techniques, shamanic sounds, and healing frequencies with the trance-like patterns and beats of techno music to bring you deeper into the practice.
These sets are mixed live and recorded by resident DJ, Ambiophonic (pictured to the right)
I'M NOT SURE ....
Meditation develops certain areas of the brain, such as those that are responsible for memory, compassion, and empathy.
Meanwhile, parts of the brain associated with fear, stress, and anxiety (such as the amygdala – the “fight or flight” center) begin to shrink.
It's what we do. It's an even older passion than meditation for us. Techno Meditation resident DJ Delphunk has been spinning vinyl (YES, VINYL) since he could brush his teeth. He began meditating a few years ago and noticed a dramatic increase in his ability to cope with s*t.
Partner Angie (the other half of Crystal/Minds) noticed that his two favorite things can be combined. She is not so great at sitting still, and (not so secretly) dreaded their meditation sessions. One day she said, "why don't you play some techno and see if we can meditate to that?". GANGBUSTERS. It worked SO WELL to calm her 'monkey brain' that she fell into a trance. The pair decided to create something new with techno tracks, healing sounds & binaural beats, and voila- here we have our beloved Techno Meditation.
