George Van Tassel—with instructions delivered, via flying saucer, from Venus—began building the Integratron machine in 1957 in order to harness the powers of antigravity, time travel, and eternal youth. Its location, accordingly, is at the nexus of various scientifically anomalous energy fields that heal both body and mind.
Though all that didn’t pan out—the government, unable to weaponize time travel, put a stop to it—the all-wood dome is an acoustically perfect sound chamber. And so it now instead hosts “sound baths,” meditative musical performances played on quartz crystal bowls.
I can’t speak to energy fields, military conspiracies, or extraterrestrial visitors, but the building and its grounds are gorgeous, the amenities and the ritual are calming (think ‘auditory spa’), and the sound bath itself is truly a experience that has to be heard to be believed.
