Live ASMR focussed on exploring the tingly sensation, relaxation, wellbeing and community in an in-person setting since 2016

Most people who experience the tingly sensation have done so since birth and before the internet began. So it seemed a natural progression for me to create live in person events once we all found each other online. I believe the most effective way to ‘give’ the sensation to another is in person through various forms of nurture and it’s also wonderful to meet other experiencers. I always find that our personality traits are very similar.

In February 2016 the opportunity came along to try live in person ASMR for the first time ever at the Changing Minds Festival, Southbank Centre London. Since then, many other experiences followed giving me the chance to explore ideas and concepts in different settings. I have ideas and plans galore! Group sessions of various sizes, more Theatre events, ASMR Sound Baths, 1-1 ‘Treatments’, Sensory Children’s story readings, more immersive ASMR Spa events, other sensory activities and community gatherings. My ultimate goal is to open an ASMR retreat, a peaceful getaway, providing group sessions, treatments and workshops.

Please open the boxes below for all of the events I have worked on so far, there are videos and images for you to explore!

Thursday 12th March 2020

Two hour long ASMR sessions 6-7pm, 7:30-8:30pm, followed by ASMR Meetup at 8:30pm. Featured guest – Dmitri MassageASMR

This one-hour live interactive experience saw one of the world’s best-known ASMRtists, Emma Smith – known as WhispersRed – whisper, poke, crunch, stroke and squeeze to create sounds to relax and evoke a tingling, deeply calming ASMR sensation.

In the dark and dimly lit den, people got cosy in a beanbag and experienced a one-hour live performance from WhispersRed, as she created soothing sounds using everyday objects and gentle whispers.

London-based Emma Smith (aka WhispersRed) has been soothing the internet with her deeply calming ASMR videos since 2014.  Some of her most popular videos have been watched by over 10 million viewers and she is a thought-leader in the area, with her book Unwind Your Mind recently published around the world.

Ticket holders from both sessions stayed and joined the ASMR Meet Up to mingle and met Emma at 8.30pm.
