Void Contemplation Tactics is a series of meditation videos from artist Daniel Chamberlin, aka Cosmic Chambo.
Today’s 15-minute guided meditation is accompanied by an excerpt from White River: Slow Flow, a series of heavily manipulated slow-motion videos of the White River in Muncie, Indiana.
The 20200406 installment of Void Contemplation Tactics also features music from Inner Travels, the “peaceful electronic music” project of Wisconsin-based artist Steve Targo. We’ll hear selections from Panorama Set (2020) and Nature Spirit (2019).
Find more sounds from Inner Travels at innertravels.bandcamp.com.
This meditation practice is rooted in the Zen tradition, and informed by Chamberlin’s time as a resident of the Indianapolis Zen Center, where he practiced “together action” with dharma teachers John Melvin, David Culp, and Lincoln Rhodes. Today’s meditation includes an excerpt from “Ordinary Mind,” a 1990 dharma talk from Joko Beck.
