Mindfulness is the practice of focusing attention in the present moment.

The practice helps us manage stress and anxiety, become more resilient with difficult emotions, and live with more self-awareness.

This highly interactive workshop explores mindful practices through group music making. User-friendly instruments are provided. No prior background in music or mindfulness is needed.

Gary Diggins has worked for Mindfulness Without Borders for the past decade and taught around the world. He is the author of Tuning the Eardrums: Listening as a Mindful Practice.

Some topics include:

  • Making music as a contemplative practice
  • Noticing emotional responses to soundscapes
  • Cultivating self-awareness through listening
  • Improvising as a means of staying in the moment

Bring a packed lunch and water container.

If you have drums or other small percussion instruments please bring them along.
