Trans Voices of Meditation
Releases June 14 on Crash Symbols.
For this installment of our Ataraxia guided meditation series, Louisville-based Psychic Skin (aka Joyce Barbour) offers gentle ambient music and a trio of guided meditations centered around trans voices from her community.
Kelly Weaver, currently interim ED at Out Loud Louisville, opens the cassette with a grounding exercise that encourages listeners to be present and accepting of their bodies.
Louisville-born but now Missouri-based Rylee Short offers a refreshing morning meditation to open the b-side, then a breath-centered meditation focused on positive affirmations.
Barbour intersperses these works with complementary sound baths, so listeners can use the entire sequence or break the tape down into several mini-meditations and rest period.
