The middle of the desert and the sound releases something inside you. Different bowls for different pieces of the body: heart, endocrine system, lungs, brain.
A man came out here in 1954 and started to build. The aliens from Venus had taught him how to rejuvenate living cell tissues. The man was a test pilot for Howard Hughes, another man who was just genius and insane enough to believe it made sense to fund the construction of a resonant dome over sacred Indian lands, a site where four rivers converge far beneath the desert ground, a site atop a strange geomagnetic anomaly, a site for scientific research on rejuvenation, anti-gravity and time travel.
Now the Joshua trees contort themselves around the space.
Now three sisters from New York tell you about the way the sound baths kept them off of planes that would later crash, put strange colors behind their eyes, made them willing to drop their corporate jobs and business suits.
Now the tones caress your ankles, shake something next to your spleen.
Now the clouds outside hover.
Now the hammocks move.
Now the chords become tangible, bouncing off the backs of your hands.
Now the baby inside you moves, reaches up, vibrates with a new and strange intention: something beamed down from above, something both cosmic and earthly, something coiled around your head like a goddamn gorgeous loving burning halo.
Now the top of your head rises.
Will it ever come back down.
