2019 kicked off with a one-two punch of Bachelorette Party and Joshua Tree art retreat/vacation in one long weekend. I loved connecting with old friends and meeting new ones at my friend Tiara's Bachelorette in LA, andI loved how the weekend incorporated wellness in a very Tiara way. We were all introduced to Sound Bath meditation at Unplug Meditation in West Hollywood.
I have never been one to meditate. Even with a dad who used meditation techniques to great effect on my classmates and friends, my brain could never quite buy in. I couldn't believe it when my friends assumed it would be right up my alley. However, they were right! Isn't it funny how sometimes your friends see things about you that you're somehow blind to? Anyway, yes, I love meditation now. I'm obsessed. I booked a sound bath at the Integratron, which was built to contact aliens. And I'm bringing my dad.
We did our sound bath right before I drove off to the desert, and one of the visualizations was a peaceful river. This is what I envisioned during that portion of the meditation, and it's the first thing I made on my art retreat. What a cool process - I should reference this when I get stressed out.
