Sonic Meditation: A Ritual for Transformation with Mary Hoang
Byron Writers Festival invites you to join author and psychologist Mary Hoang via Zoom for a special sonic meditation ceremony – a transformational experience grounded in psychology and music designed to help you heal and evolve.
Life poses many challenges – emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, interpersonally. To move through life’s ups and down, we must learn to let go to heal and transform.
Mary Hoang, founder of The Indigo Project, will lead a sonic ritual with original music from composer Richard Lucano (Phondupe), to help you process and release something that is no longer in alignment with your path moving forward.
Fusing modern psychology, ambient music and visualisation, you’ll lie down and take an adventure through your mind as you are guided through a soundtracked journey, experienced with your eyes closed.
Exploring your emotions, beliefs and thoughts, this is an opportunity to process your baggage and clear a path for your future, free from the weight of the past.
The evening will include an introduction by Zacharey Jane and a short conversation with Mary about her book Darkness Is Golden: A Guide to Personal Transformation and Dealing with Life’s Messiness.
When: Thursday 4 November, 6 – 7.30pm
Where: Online via Zoom
Tickets: Free for Members, $10 General
Mary Hoang is an entrepreneur, artist and the head psychologist and founder of The Indigo Project, one of Australia’s largest and most progressive psychology practice. Since 2009, she has been pioneering a creative approach to psychology. Mary has emerged as a leader in the humanisation and transformation of the mental health industry.
After her father’s death in 2017, Mary turned to art and writing to explore the darker aspects of life anxieties, fears, insecurities, loss, emotional pain and ‘baggage’ and how these hold the keys to insight, meaning and purpose. The moving artworks she produced, utilising sound, psychology and installation, informed groundbreaking research by the University of Melbourne.
