Living in the city makes us feel as though we must constantly be on the go. In fact, we Angelenos have made rushing and sitting in traffic part of our daily routine. Floating wants to change that pattern and normalize being still. They want to encourage Angelenos to incorporate mental wellness into their weekly routine.
This outdoor collective gathers every week to connect with each other through nature and music. They offer two outdoor experiences, Soundscapes and Soundbaths. Their Soundscapes combine beautiful nature and the power of art. It includes live musical experiences from local performers at their favorite nature-filled spots. Their Soundbaths are weekly outdoor meditations that involve vibrational therapy through singing bowls. It is said that these peaceful experiences aid in chronic stress, increase mindfulness, and promote total relaxation.
