The Integratron in Landers, California (click here for more info)

To celebrate Halloween, today I went to a sound bath at The Integratron. After registering, you take of your shoes, climb up the steep stairs, and then lay on the floor for the half hour acoustic experience. Because of my bad back I am not able to lay on the floor for any amount of time, so I was the only person in the room sitting up.

You’re supposed to lay still and close your eyes, but I was fascinated watching the process, so I couldn't keep my eyes closed. The instruments used to make the relaxing and soothing sounds are the white quartz crystal bowls you’ll see in the picture below.

From their website:

The Integratron is an acoustically perfect tabernacle and energy machine sited on a powerful geomagnetic vortex in the magical Mojave Desert.

The Sound Bath is a sonic healing session that you can experience in this highly resonant, multiwave sound chamber. The quartz crystal singing bowls are keyed to the energy centers or chakras of the body, where sound is nutrition for the nervous system. The results are waves of peace, heightened awareness, and relaxation of the mind and body.


  1. Great post! I've never heard of this, but want to do it...


  2. It is very cool. I hope you get to do it. You'll like it.

  3. "Sounds" great. I want to try! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Cool building. I don't see any men in the images. This sound therapy concept seems a lot like the psycological effect obtained from chanting and singing.

  5. Karyn, you'll love it, it was great. I hope you get to go.

  6. Pete,

    There were men there, I didn't notice there weren't any in the pics. There were probably 20-30 people there the day I went, and I'd say it was half men an half women, give or take.

  7. Nice altar! Buddhist, Hindu, or ???


  8. Neither, I don't think. The sign says it is a collection of things left behind by people who have visited and were moved by the experience.
