The Big Quiet is coming to Oakland for a 500 person mass meditation experience inside the historic Rotunda.

Going down under the 120 foot skylit elliptical dome, The Big Quiet will take you through a series of breathing exercises, crowd-powered vocal toning, a mass sound meditation, special guest musical performances and break-out conversations to get to know the Oakland community.

All attendees will be gifted a brand-new Tuft & Needle meditation cushion, kombucha from GT’s Kombucha, essential oils from Saje, Antioxidant water from smartwater, have the opportunity to demo Muse® the brain-sensing meditation headband and get free access to the Muse X Jesse Israel meditation collection via the Muse app.

A portion of each ticket sale will support our two giveback partners: Kula for Karma in bringing therapeutic meditation to people suffering from trauma, addiction and adverse life circumstances; and Chooose in fighting climate change by reducing the carbon footprint of the event.
