Sit in mindful resonance. Orion of Illuminating Hearts collaborates with meditation teacher Anand Murthy to create a special sonic gong-scape during Omaha Power Yoga’s open meditation practice. Follow the strike of the gong and the resulting resonance across all frequencies into infinite drops of emptiness. Step through the sacred threshold of the gong into beingness.
One powerful vehicle for cultivating mindfulness can be found through the practice of listening mindfully. Mindful listening in essence is a practice of receptivity where through intention you bring greater awareness to the experience of wholehearted listening.
The gong mediation provided by Illuminating Hearts is offered by donation (on top of the free meditation class). Suggested donation at the door is $1-5. If you choose not to donate green energy, some type of energy exchange is appreciated. We take hugs, testimonials, social media connections, generous feedback and anything your heart can dream!!

Right before this cosmic gong supported meditation we have a Slow Flow Soundscape event and after we have an evening Organic Sound Alchemy Fall Into Sound event at Omaha Power Yoga—so you can fall into sound all day!
Anand Murthy aims to help more and more people realize that meditation and pranayama (breath practice) can drastically reduce stress/anxiety even during the most difficult times, and enhance overall quality of life. He has been involved in insight meditation in the Theravada tradition for over ten years and believes that this is the direct path to tranquility. His current mindfulness practice is focused on concentration (with the breath) with Shaila Catherine as his main mentor. Anand loves to work with beginning students as well as experienced meditators. He also loves to emphasize the scientific reasoning behind mindfulness practice during his meditation sessions.
Orion is a diverse, biodynamic, mindful, sustainable, organic sound farmer, cultivating heart-centered living. His wide range of experience over the past 25 years lends to his gifts as a facilitator and teacher, innovator, builder and archaeomusician. Over many years, the didgeridoo, flute, and gong have taught him to resonate with the world from the heart through breath and rhythm. His true nature and calling is being a channel for sacred sounds to sonically create space for you. He knows we are all plucked, strummed, bowed and blown into vibration and resonance by a cosmic love.
