CAMDEN — There are two more opportunities to experience community sound bathing in the Camden Amphitheatre this summer. On Sunday, July 17, and Monday, July 25, at 6 p.m., sound therapist Jim Doble and didgeridoo musician Forest Weston will use a variety of resonant instruments to create soothing waves of sound.

Sound bathing is a meditative experience where those in attendance are “bathed” in sound. It is often classified as a wellness practice. Many who have participated in Doble’s sound baths claim that the gongs, chimes, singing bowls, and other instruments provide a musical and relaxing “sonic cleanse.”

Doble has spent 30 years creating musical instruments, specializing in custom, experimental and one-of-a-kind designs. He has produced several instruments for enjoyment at libraries, schools, parks and museums. Weston has been playing didgeridoo for 12 years and relishes the opportunity to play to groups in beautiful outdoor settings.

Participation in the program is by optional donation, with a portion of the proceeds collected benefiting the Camden Public Library. Doble encourages participants to bring a blanket, yoga mat or chair. The public is welcome to “drop-in,” but pre-registration is encouraged so you can be notified in case of event cancellation. Contact Doble at or call (207) 785-2212.
