In this workshop, I invite participants into the silence between musical experiences, through activities that include listening to solo Bach and Indian music on the violin, as well as vocalizing together. Throughout, attention is focused on conscious breathing, relaxation in the body and mind, the effect of the music on one’s thoughts, how one feels, and what changes in awareness take place during listening. Participants experience that their breathing becomes deeper, emotions are calmer, and the mind becomes clear and focused. There is a renewed freedom from stressful thoughts, anxiety and fatigue as well as an increased energy and awareness of vibration in the body. No prior musical experience is necessary.

“Michael’s warm, open demeanor created an atmosphere of trust and exploration.”
“Not only did I reach a state of calm, centered and connected, I am leaving with specific tools I can use for myself and in my work.”
