If you can't make the trek all the way out to the Integratron in Landers this week, you can still get your soothing, cooling Summer Solstice bliss from a sound bath at the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock. Let the tonal frequencies from the quartz crystal bowls and Paiste planetary gongs enter your head and stimulate your neural pathways as you lie on a blanket, eyes closed, entering a hypnotic state of meditation and peace. If you've never experienced a sound bath before, get ready for a blissful treat. Benefits of sound baths are said to include a more relaxed mind and body, a better night's sleep, fewer aches and pains, a decrease in depression and anxiety and more enjoyment of life in general. And all you have to do is lie there! Bowl vibration experts Jamie Bechtold and Mary Frances Spencer will have their instruments tuned to the alignment of the planets, starting your summer mind off on the most positive, and pleasurable wavelengths. Bring a blanket, mat or pillow and leave your outside thoughts back in spring. Center for the Arts, 2225 Colorado Blvd., Eagle Rock; Mon., June 24, 7-9 p.m.; free. (323) 226-1617, cfaer.org.
