About

Our Secular Sabbath collective consists of artists who aim to bring something special to the human experience. Our collaboration was born through our event Phone Home. Phone Home has evolved out of the societal need to celebrate a day of rest, a time to settle, to set all compasses north for the approach week. Thus, we observe the secular sabbath. The space is constructed of sensory experiences that invite the experiencer to drop into their sensory selves: the way they hear, smell, taste, touch, and see. Our center point is music, which is proven to have deep psychological and subliminal effects on human beings. We intertwine musical artists who have worldwide success with artists who should have worldwide success and invite them to play ambient music which can vary from instrumental to vocal to modular sets. We have often have spaces dedicated to serving tea ceremony, a bodyworker with natural anointments distilled from her garden, a foraged plant installation in which people sit, a poem store (your poem, your price), an interactive musical space, a singing plant zone (where people interact with a plant hooked up to a midi) and a collage zone. This experience usually flows for 5 hours, in which people are invited to come and leave, and lay down as they please.
