Happy Holidays!

We will not be hosting the International Didjeridu Meditation for this Winter Solstice on 12-21-21. We were not able to arrange a venue in time for the date. The atmosphere of covid and limited crowd gatherings has been a factor in limiting our options for a safe space. We plan to gather again for the Spring Equinox and will post the details in advance of that date. Meanwhile, wishing you all wonderful holidays and a fulfilling winter season!

CDC at ACM 6-20-21

Summer Solstice Meditation

The International Didjeridu Meditation is a global prayer for peace and harmony. It begins at sunset in Australia with Didjeridu playing and continues around the world at sunset in each location. This event is unique as a two part session. The actual Solstice begins at 10:32pm on 6-20-21, The Chicago Didjeridu Chorus will play on the 20th at 7pm to welcome in the Solstice energy, and again on the 21st at 7pm to ride with the energy.

This is an all ages event. There is no cover charge. We ask that all attendees respect whatever distancing protocol is in effect at the time of the event.

Chicago Didjeridu Chorus at Rockefeller Chapel 2014

Here is a rare video of a 2014 CDC performance at Rockefeller Chapel (the video is labeled with the wrong date) during the International Didjeridu Meditation. CDC had been playing at the Chapel on the Equinox and Solstice dates each year in coordination with the Didjeridu players in Australia. The event began in Australia at sunset and followed the sunsets around the world at which time Didjeridus played in their respective countries at sunset until the vibration made it all the way around the globe. CDC has been doing this at various locations for 12 years or so.
