This workshop will explore the use of music as a meditation/trance induction tool. We will use active listening techniques to gradually expand our focus as we listen to pieces of music until we are enveloped in sound and sensation. This will aid participants in not only expanding their enjoyment of music, but also in entering into deep meditative or trance states.
Participants can take these new skills with them and deepen their usual mental discipline practice or just use them to find new dimensions to music they already love.
