VANCOUVER, BC, April 29,
2022 /CNW/ - Numinus Wellness ("Numinus" or the
"Company") (TSX: NUMI) (OTCQX: NUMIF), a mental health care
company advancing innovative treatments and safe, evidence-based
psychedelic-assisted therapies, is pleased to announce that it
is launching Music As Medicine by Numinus, a series
of ceremonial concerts exploring the role music plays in
psychedelic-assisted therapy and mental health. Music As
Medicine by Numinus will feature a rotating roster of
meditative and ambient musicians, including Jon Hopkins, East Forest and Superposition,
multimedia art, and immersive guided meditations.
"Music, community and connection have always played an important
role in sacred ceremonies and are an integral component of
psychedelic-assisted therapy and integration," says Payton Nyquvest, Founder and CEO, Numinus.
"Through the Music as Medicine by Numinus series, we
are celebrating an emerging genre of meditative music and exploring
the role that music can play as part of the healing process, while
building connection across a community."
"Psychedelic therapies are moving into legality across the
world, and yet it feels like no one is talking about the music that
accompanies them," says Jon Hopkins.
"In Indigenous psychedelic ceremonies," he adds, "the music is as
important as the medicine, and has been for thousands of years.
Music is how you navigate the space."
Following the recent announcement of Numinus' proposed expansion
into the U.S., Music As Medicine by Numinus will be
hosted in various cities across the U.S. and Canada, celebrating Numinus' move into the
U.S. and reinforcing its community in its home country of
Canada. The first event is in
Los Angeles on May 21, 2022 at the renowned venue, Lighthouse
Immersive, and will consist of five hours of continuous and
entrancing live music and visuals by a line-up of the preeminent
artists in this emerging genre: Superposition, Justin Boreta, Matthew
Davis' ambient project and East Forest. L.A.-based
multimedia art studio Strangeloop, known for
their captivating visuals for artists such as Lil NasX, Flying
Lotus, and The Weeknd, will be fully enveloping the space with live
projection-mapping intended to submerge guests in an all-sensory
experience. The event will end with a live, 3D spatial-audio
playback of Jon Hopkins' most
recent, acclaimed album, Music For Psychedelic
Therapy, experienced in total darkness, followed by an
intimate, live piano performance of "Sit Around the Fire".
"We are thrilled to be a part of the Music as Medicine by
Numinus event series. The intention is to create a safe
container for deep listening," says Justin
Boreta. "This is the way this type of music should be
"Music to modern humans is like asking a fish what water is.
With music more present than ever, I am excited to be fostering
spaces that can serve as a spear tip of exploration and
experimentation around using music as a tool for inner insight and
growth," says East Forest.
Numinus is also showcasing its Music As Medicine
by Numinus concept at DoubleBlind's Mycelia Festival
in Ojai, California, as well as
other cities, which will be announced soon.
Tickets for the L.A. event go on sale Friday, April 29 at
