"Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind" - Plato
Man has always used music to create and restore harmony between mind and body, but so often these days it's just a backdrop to our busy lives. Buried behind our activity - in a shopping centre, in an elevator, watching TV, on hold, or even at home - music is there, playing a key role in shaping a mood, an emotion, and a reaction in our subconscious.
Consider these monthly sessions an opportunity to come and sit in silent presence as we listen to an album - on vinyl - in it's entirety, bearing witness and focusing our attention fully on the music, while allowing whatever arises within us to to simply be there.
Each month, the meditation will be preceded by a short discussion on the chosen album to provide context and some open dialogue.
I also encourage you to email me, offering suggestions for an album to be considered for future sessions.
MINDFUL VINYL: FEBRUARY
Some time ago, I studied the music of the Beatles via the University of Rochester. It led me to open 'Mindful Vinyl' with The White Album. Most of the songs were conceived by the band during long periods of meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India, a process which began in February 1968, exactly 50 years before us.
This is an intimate setting with spaces limited to just 12. Please book here.
