……

Metta – derived from the Pali language, an ancient tongue composed of Buddhist scriptures. The following can be attributed; loving-kindness, friendliness, goodwill, benevolence, fellowship, non-violence, and an active interest in others.

Grove – a small wood, orchard, or group of trees.

Simon Haiduk is a multimedia artist working with several visual art and sonic mediums with themes that have an emphasis on nature and metaphysical energy. His art is exhibited globally and he is recognized as a significant contributor to the modern Visionary Art movement. Culminating over fifteen years of thematic creativity and collaborations, he has found a synthesis of his explorations with various mediums by fusing them into an audiovisual concert.

This concert features stunning visuals of Simon’s digital paintings transformed into animations. These animations are woven with layers of light and sound in a live performance*, generating a unique synchronous expression. The soundtrack is a dynamic range of Simon’s ambient music, with heartwarming melodies, and pulsing rhythms from other world-class musicians with whom he has collaborated. *This specific event on March 5th does not include live musicians, it features pre-recorded assets combined and presented as a cinematic concert.

Metta Grove is a meditation on our intrinsic connection to nature and the foundations of this reality as light and sound.

The guided journey is tailored to help you find inner peace, and connect with the natural world around you. Whether you’re new to meditation or a seasoned practitioner, you’ll find something of value at this concert.

It is intentionally designed for presentation in group settings to feel a sense of unity and connection with others. These settings might include ceremonial, plant medicine or meditative spaces though it is also suitable for any media viewing container and appropriate for almost all ages.

For the live settings, Simon will give a presentation with insights about his creative inspiration, tools, process and integration of plant medicines/entheogens.

You are encouraged to bring a sketchbook or journal to nourish any spontaneous creativity that may arise. There will be around 40 minutes of time afterward to explore your creativity, mingle and enjoy any offerings in the lobby.
