How do you feel when you hear your favorite song? Or kind words from a friend? The sounds we hear have an effect on our health and well-being. And so does silence. In this workshop we will find the balance between silence and sound, using meditation and music as a way to slow and quiet the mind, reduce stress and relax the body. The workshop will be set to the soundtrack of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme. No meditation experience necessary.
