If all goes according to plan, Columbus will serve as the site of the world’s largest sound bath.
Founder Jessica Cale and hOm Sound & Meditation will attempt to set the Guinness Book of World Records mark for the world’s largest sound bath on Sept. 21 at Columbus Commons.
The record attempt will feature a “symphony” of musicians, including those specializing in guitar, piano, violin, cello, vocals and more, in addition to more than 40 different sound practitioners who aim to create an “ocean of harmony.”

Tickets for the event, which is called World’s Largest Sound Bath and City-Wide Meditation, are available here. Those in attendance will lie on yoga mats and will be “bathed” in sound, a practice many believe offers therapeutic benefits. The event aims to improve mental health of those in attendance, according to Cale.
“The increase in violent crime, mental health, and loneliness are the three main focuses we want to address.” Cale said, citing a study that found when 1% of a population participates in Transcendental Meditation, crime rate is reduced by an average of 16%. “We want Columbus to be another case study of the impact that a community with intention can make on its well-being. Meditation has proven, lasting benefits on mental health and creates a space to rest, process, and release stored emotion in the mind and body.”
