Individual tracks need to be at least 60 minutes in length; longer is better up to about 2-3 hours!

Music should fit the podcast tone, i.e. no beats, no vocals, no dissonances, no abrupt sounds, no field recordings unless tastefully integrated into lulling drones.

With episode #119, I’m really proud to present the work of Ceramic (aka Daman Hoffman). I enjoy the pure and reflective drones of Daman’s work and therefore profoundly grateful to present them and share them with you; even more exciting is that Daman allowed me to create an extended drone using one of his original works at the end of this program that is exclusive to the Ambient Soundbath. Please consider supporting Ceramic (Daman) on Bandcamp.

About Ceramic (Daman Hoffman)

Ceramic - Daman Hoffman - Ambient Soundbath
Daman Hoffman is a soundbath facilitator and musician based in Little Rock, Arkansas, although that’s all come about somewhat recently. After achieving sobriety four years ago he began to explore his fascination with sound and received training in meditation and vibrational healing. Creating healing music for soundbath sessions led him to explore his love for ambient and new age music. Daman plays a variety of instruments but for his project Ceramic, he utilizes only synths for his compositions that swell, evolve and cascade in a meditative and sometimes cinematic way. His first album, “Now That You’re Here,” is out on September 22nd. Other musical and meditation projects include Embassy of Sound, Ethereal Planes, The Passive Fire, and Natural State Vibes. You can also hear him on the radio, hosting “Rivulets & Reveries,” a weekly program devoted to dreamy ambient music on 103.3 KOBV in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Ambient Soundbath Guided Meditation

This guided Soundbath Meditation, Calming the Inner Storm, was not originally created for the podcast. I created this as a free/pay what you want program for my Bandcamp fans, but I decided that fans of the podcast might like it, as well. If you want the music only, you can get that here, as this is based on an oldie, Ambient Soundbath Podcast #30

As always, enjoy and please share your thoughts.

What is soundbath meditation®

The Ambient Soundbath, Sound Meditation and what is Soundbath Meditation®? 

The Ambient Soundbath has its roots in the practice of sound meditation. Sound meditation was something that I began exploring as an undergrad at Goddard College in Vermont some 25 years ago. With a combined goal of having a deeper music listening experience and pursuing a natural, heightened state of awareness, I blended my vipassana, or insight meditation, practice with a self-discovered deep listening and sonic awareness practice.

Where the Ambient Soundbath was created as a sonic break from the everyday routine, a space for thinking and being; the Soundbath Meditation® is meant to go deeper. Where the Ambient Soundbath can create a temporary state of well-being, Soundbath Meditation® aims to create a more permanent feeling of well-being and inner peace.

Soundbath Meditation®, on some level, is not different from mindfulness meditation, in this regard. With mindfulness meditation, the purpose is to become aware of what is currently happening around you, rather than focusing on something different than the present. With Soundbath Meditation®, you become aware of what is happening around you, sonically, and focus on that. In this way, Soundbath Meditation® is a hybrid of mindfulness meditation and vipassana (insight) meditation, where you are both aware of what is currently happening around you (mindfulness) and focused on what is happening as it happens (vipassana/ insight).

When the Ambient Soundbath Podcast first came online there was little reference to sound meditation that didn’t, eventually, lead back to the work of, Deep Listening pioneer and composer, Pauline Oliveros. However, since then, many new websites and articles have popped up talking about the benefits of sound meditation, sonic awareness, even “live” soundbaths. I believe that we’ve reached a new era for sound as a way to create sustainable heightened states of awareness and consciousness and I believe the time has come to begin to talk about and teach the benefits of Soundbath Meditation®. I will be talking about this more in the days, weeks and years to come.

If you’re interested in being a part of a virtual Soundbath Meditation®, please contact me here. 

For now, please continue to enjoy the Ambient Soundbath Podcast and Soundbath Meditation® as a gateway to sustained inner peace.
