Cultivate a state of meditation with Above & Beyond’s Flow State

By Rukes

Flow State premiered last Friday, July 19. It is the newest project by Above & Beyond consisting of 17 songs. Flow State is unlike their previous albums.

Above & Beyond worked on the concept with help from Elena Bower. They have created an ambient music project dedicated to mindfulness, yoga, and meditation. Come to the Gorge Amphitheater On Sunday, July 27 and watch Above & Beyond perform Flow State live with us!

The bonus material is what really left a mark on us. We can’t stop replaying the spoken word edits!!! Elena Bower was the guest on the previous Group Therapy episode. Bower performed her spoken word edits from the Flow State album and debuted it live in the mix.

We found something inside Bower’s discussion that we did not expect. At a time when the world feels to be near its boiling point. Bower shows us the light, she speaks of depression, anxiety, and loneliness. During Bower’s talk, five Flow State songs are playing simultaneously in the background. Featuring Great Falls, Night Light, Don’t Leave, Slow Buchla Sunshine, Energy.

Press play: you will find and learn so much about yourself. Replay Elena Bowers discussion via Group Therapy 340 or Flow State.

The first step is finding a place of peace. We learn from Bower that peace helps ease the mind of stress. “This is how you bring coherence to your entire system.” (Great Falls.)

“Take One Deep Breath.” Is the repeated theme throughout Bower’s discussion. We originally didn’t give much thought into the spoken word edits. But when we heard Bowers Live guest mix we were struck with emotion. “Every single time you felt alone… This one deep breath is how you solve it, this is how you let the light back in.” (Slow Buchla Sunshine)

Flow State hit us especially hard. We hope that some of our readers feel the same. In a July 19 email From Above & Beyond they went into further details about Flow State.

“Our music has always been about getting in touch with, and understanding and accepting our emotions. After those amazing yoga sets at some of our events, we realized that there is a bigger place for this more reflective music within our little universe.”

Do you think you are emotionally ready for the spoken word edits? Get ready with an open mind and let us know how you react on Facebook or Twitter!
