BODY ACTUALIZED FEATURED ON SUB.CULTURE

“The Body Actualized Center in Brooklyn lives a double life–a meditative oasis among the concrete by day and a hotbed for experimental music and dance by night. Its founders see a parallel between the calm, ambient music that accompanies their yoga sessions and the rhythm-intensive eletronic music that fuels their activities after dark.”

LARAAJI LIVE IN CONCERT

Body Actualized is thrilled to present a very special performance by legendary new age artist, Laraaji on Thursday night, December 20, 2012. Recently acclaimed for his collaboration with psych duo Blues Control on RVNG Intl., Laraaji is most well known for his appearance in Brian Eno’s Ambient series — the series that coined the term Ambient — and has committed countless cult releases with his signature style of instrumental drone (with zither and dulcimer).

Laraaji is a vital presence in New York’s yoga and meditation communities. His recent performances with Blues Control made a serious buzz in the psychedelic underground, levitating the audience with their transcendental vibes.

Definitely do not miss this very special event — Laraaji’s performance will surely assist in our collective ascent into the new age of Light.

NU AGE ALBUM: MATTHEW YOUNG “RECURRING DREAMS”

One of the holy grails of early hypnagogia (from 1981 on Young’s own Yoga Records, no less), Matthew Young’s Recurring Dreams is a mesmerizing trip through Young’s subconscious. It’s dadaist, spectral style sometimes evokes the blissful play of a child’s daydream — at other times the uneasiness of an uncharted territory. From the yogarecords.com bio: “Young is receiver and transmitter of strange ideas drifting in the ether, and renders them quite understandable to any open-minded listener.”

DEFINITION: “HEALTHY HEDONISM”

“Healthy Hedonism” is an alchemical lifestyle choice and a method which unites the sensual and spiritual. This is making decisions that are on the whole good, positive, and life enhancing for the body and mind, while still pleasureable. By engaging in mindfulness, one may bring consciousness into indulgence.
