This live music meditation is guided by the mystical Sufi sounds of Dawoud. Dawoud has developed a system wherein meditation is guided by sound and musical form. in his meditation sessions, he uses acoustic and electronic sound and musical processes from all parts of the world and all historical periods to lead the journey through various levels of mystic experience.

One of the standard aspects of the practice of guided meditation is in using suggested imagery to lead the seeker into different states of consciousness. However, while sound is employed, musical form has been overlooked. Each set of melodic forms (i.e. different scales, musical patterns, etc.) can create different emotional, visceral, and subconscious reactions.


Dawoud is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, improviser, producer, writer, artist, audio engineer, has toured the US and Europe, and has composed and recorded music for film, theater, and dance performances. He studied Indian Raga, Jazz, and other music, as well as various systems of enlightenment, concentrating on Islam / Sufism (and has 17 years of experience as an Islamic minister for the NYC prisons).
