For thousands of years, people have used music and singing as an aid to meditation and contemplation.

 

Would You Love to Do That?

I offer one-hour sessions of 'Music for Meditation and Contemplation', in the creekside village of Devoran near Truro. You don't need any previous experience of playing a musical instrument or singing, although if you do play an instrument, you can bring it.

 

Music for Meditation and Contemplation

 

  •    Harp music / Sound Bath to settle you on arrival

 

  •    Mindful breathing exercises / sitting meditation

 

  •    Chanting, toning and drumming to balance the body's energies

 

  •    Singing taize chants and simple contemplative songs together

 

  •     Improvising with simple percussion instruments / chimes / singing bowls

 

  •    If you play an instrument, I can help you to create your own contemplative music for that instrument

 

  •    Play a harp if you wish - I can teach you some very simple scales based on ancient modes, and show you how to turn those scales into free improvisations

 

  •    A final Sound Bath, interweaving Medieval Harp music with other contemplative instruments.

 

Is the Session One-to-One?

Yes, you can book a one-to-one session. Or if you'd prefer you can book with up to 3 friends, in which case the cost is split between you.

I also offer this as a group workshop, usually as part of a spiritual or mindful retreat.

 

Is any Religion Involved?

No, I welcome all faiths and none.

 

How Much Will it Cost?

£35 for one hour.
