Event description

Description

The universal practice of mindfulness or deep attention originates in the remote history of mankind.

In recent decades it was brought to western awareness through the teachings of Jon Kabat-Zinn and Jack Kornfield, among others, who integrated mindfulness with western psychology practice as a stress reduction technique. The practice of mindfulness has been scientifically shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and to increase the quality of life in general.


The integration of mindfulness and music takes music appreciation to a whole new level, by reviving the ancient art of listening. Music has become an integral part of modern life, becoming a constant soundtrack to our everyday activities. Music, however, just like human beings, has endless layers of depth that can be unveiled through the active use of concentration and attention. And through the practice of the art of listening, we develop an essential skill, albeit forgotten, to human relationships.


This workshop will integrate the philosophical foundations of mindfulness and listening, with simple but highly useful exercises which use music to develop mindfulness and mindfulness as a tool to experience music more in depth, whether as a music listener, or as a practicing musician.
