For a new and exciting approach toward meditation, we recommend considering Integratron; a combination of art, science, and magic. Located about 20 miles north of Joshua Tree National Park, you will find a historical structure in the middle of the Mojave Desert in Landers, CA. The structure is a 38-foot tall and 55-foot wide wooden dome. This structure offers multiple purposes for a variety of people, such as explorers, musicians, scientists, and yoga groups! One of the most well-known experiences at the dome is The Sound Bath, specific for those looking for meditation and rejuvenation. The Sound Bath features a 60-minute session of rest set to the calming tunes of quartz crystal singing bowls. The experience channels energy and nutrition to the body. This results in relaxation of the mind and body. Experience what the historical wooden dome has to offer for a different approach to yoga and wellness.
