Event description
A guided listening walk along Stephen Avenue, being mindful of the unique sounds that surround us and are within us at this time of year.

About this Event

Did you know sound travels farther in colder air? While we may feel like retreating inside as the air cools and the garden's harvest is traded for snow, there are unique soundscapes to experience now if we venture out. This is also a particularly busy season as we approach the holidays, and a slow, meditative walk can be especially therapeutic for noticing the inner and outer signals we might otherwise miss in the hustle and bustle. This listening walk takes us to the heart of downtown Calgary, where you can experience the seasonal city sights and sounds with fresh mindfulness. Come join Aura from Sintonia Studio for this mind-clearing, ear-cleaning sound walk in Stephen Avenue, beginning at the Famous Five Statue at Olympic Plaza.

What is a soundwalk?

👂🏻Also called a listening walk, it is a slow, intentional walking meditation focused on the sonic world surrounding and within us.

What to expect?

👂🏻We will meet the posted location and begin with some short exercises to help awaken our senses and awareness. Then we will walk at a very slow deliberate pace along a planned outdoor route without speaking for approximately 45 minutes and return to our starting position. We will maintain physical distancing and often walk in single file, as is best for deep listening while walking in a group.

👂🏻The terrain is mostly flat and on paved pathways. The pace will be very slow, so it is suitable for almost any fitness level, and the complete route is wheelchair accessible.

👂🏻We will proceed in any weather above -15 degrees Celsius wind chill temperature, so please dress appropriately for moving slowly in winter weather.
