EXPERIENCE - Locals DISTRICT

Morning Space

A small intimate stage, set in a serene atmosphere which will caress your dreams and wake you up from your slumber in a musical way. Join in for a meditative journey of music, where stories are told by rhythmic beats and soft woven fabrics of the wind. Dance your way to ambient world tunes which creates an atmosphere of sonic zone of abandonment, and lets you escape from the noises. Let the world around you slow down, as you embrace yourself and lose yourself in the melodies and unknown sensations of the sounds around you.

Come, and experience the many unsaid emotions expressed through music.

SACRED ALCHEMY at District - 3rd March 19

Having hosted a series of Sacred Alchemy parties in cities like Mumbai & Hyderabad, we finally get an opportunity to bring our vision to life under a moonlit night, inside a fort that has been in existence since mid-nineteenth century.

Individual elements of sound, sight and space will fuse together to transform into an immersive whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Those who enter will find their baser instincts trans-mutated by the magic elixir of music. You may be likely to experience a purification of consciousness and unprecedented dissolution of the shadowy parts of your soul.

Your experienced alchemists for the evening are intimately acquainted with the tools and procedures that will lead you down the path of the unknown.

Warning: Sacred Alchemy is not for the faint-hearted. Losing all perception of time and space is a commonly observed side effect.

Tea ceremony by Parva Tea Curated by SPACE SESSION

The bounties of nature are plenty, aligning the imminent path of human kind with this true spirit is the only effort required to enjoy these fruits. There are many ways of intercepting these reflections of the inner soul on this mirror called life. One of them being Cha Dao.

Cha Dao when literally translated "the way of tea" is a tradition of chinese lineage. Popularised by the Daoists and Sages, they used it for its immense healing powers, medicinal usage, cultivating awakened presence by sustaining long states of meditation.

The ceremony itself is a journey of orgasmic sensory exploration and awakening of the deep lying stimulus of our characters that can be unmoved by the subtle smell of the beauty that hides inside this graceful compassionate plant teacher.

Though a great way for a communion, tea ceremony can also be used for individual introspection and a daily practise using tai chi disciplines and rejuvenation of Qi.

As a brilliant addition to any workshop retreat or immersion space, tea can enhance people on a whole. Used as an initiation in the morning for clearing the ground for rest of the days work or in between the day for mere appreciation of simpler things in life. Also in a group people can check in to the same mood and vibe as the others.
