Intuitive Music Making & Meditation: Everyone with or without musical training welcome!
Update: This event has now been replaced by Mindfulness Day: Watering the Seeds of Creativity and Joy
Sitting, walking and eating meditation are wonderful ways to refresh and renew body and mind. We will use mindful listening, sound and music to deepen the connection with ourselves and with nature. Indoors and outdoors, we will create music in the moment with percussion instruments from around the world and whatever instruments you bring. We will take time to discover the source of our inner music and explore the music of our hearts.
“Deep listening and improvising in nature were a profound and beautiful experience, helping me to connect with life on a very deep level.”
“Many thanks for a deeply inspiring and fun time!”
“I loved the freedom to explore my creative side with gentle encouragement. It was delightful!”
