Event Details

The Des Moines Art Center is a place where experiencing something new or unexpected can happen with every visit. It’s also a space that can care for the body as well as the mind. Explore the unique architectural spaces, and the artworks therein, with a series of sound baths in each of the three Art Center buildings.

A Sound Bath is a deeply-immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle, yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture your mind and body.

Musicians Deb Jennings and Justin Appel will be our guides for these experiences. Jennings’ passion is to assist people to vibrate in unconditional love and gratitude and to transcend external circumstances to connect with their own inner peace, joy and love as well as helping them access and share their unique gifts with the world so they may live fulfilling lives in service to humanity. Jennings will be focused on playing singing bowls for our events.

Appel has been making music for 30 years. Being totally blind, he experienced much alienation as a child and eventually discovered he had a gift for communicating with the language of music. Appel is passionate about having fun and sharing the gift of music with as many people as possible. Appel’s main instrument will be the gong at the Art Center’s sound baths.
