Meditation Workshop: The Power of Sound

SAT May 28, 3-4:30pm

In this mediation workshop, we place our emphasis on the healing effect of sound and chanting. As with all Meditation workshops, we begin with gentle stretching and breathing work and continue with quiet mindfulness mediation. In all of our workshops, we review the challenges of calming and stilling the mind. So a key focus is to develop and use tools to makes it easier to establish a consistent and persistent meditation practice. This workshop builds on the science of what happens in the brain when we get together as a group and chant: When we listen to music, almost all areas of the brain are active (compared to just doing physical exercise for example) and powerful physical and mental memories can be re-created, helping in treatment of Dementia and Parkinson’s Disease. In our workshop, we will chant easy to learn Sanskrit terms (similar to the mantras we introduced in earlier workshops and just remember how powerful it was when we all chanted OM at the last workshop!). If you want a sneak preview of what kind of music you will be hearing and the context of chanting, click here and watch the trailer.
