Mindfulness & Music: Deep Listening
17 October, 7-9 pm UK time
THE SOURCE OF CREATIVITY – how do creative impulses arise? What nurtures and supports them, helps them grow and develop into a piece/poem/picture/song/creative offering?
You are invited to touch your creative source/heart – relaxing, grounding, touching openness and receptivity, becoming curious what emerges.
Guided meditations in stillness and movement offer space to slow down, rest, revive and become fully present. Deep Listening practices by Pauline Oliveros and others help us ground ourselves in our listening body and in our connection with the Earth. We sound and create together, using our voices and instruments you bring in ways that feel natural and spontaneous.
You are invited to engage as much or as little as your energy allows – resting and listening are always options, too.
Everyone is welcome to join, whether you have a musical background or not.
This event is facilitated by Susanne Olbrich and Joe Holtaway.
