Music & Mandala Meditation with Jules Baker and Balam Kan

Did you know that coloring can be meditative? Now imagine listening to live music while coloring mandalas. Join us for this multisensory meditative experience as illustrator Jules Baker leads a mandala coloring class enhanced with live Pre-Columbian music by Ernesto Olmos and Jim Berenholtz. Ernesto and Jim call their musical duo - Balam Kan, which is a Maya term meaning "Jaguar Serpent". They specialize in performing on a wide range of ancient wind and percussion instruments of Mesoamerica, including Hum Tah (Mayan gourd trumpets), Tlapitzalli (ceramic ocarinas and flutes), Boxel Ak (turtle shell drums), and Tenavares (butterfly cocoon rattles). In this performance, you’ll hear a chanted version of the Popol Vuh in its original, Quiche’-Mayan language from Guatemala!
