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.
