Music and Mindfulness
Monday, June 28, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Monday, repeating until Monday July 26, 2021
When we practice mindfulness, we focus our awareness on the present moment. We are conscious of our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and in this we hold attitudes that are non-judgmental, curious, and kind. Mindfulness isn’t about “emptying our minds,” but rather about noticing what is there! No prior musical experience is required to join the class, and the only instrument you will need to bring is your own voice. We will be practicing mindfulness, relaxation, and self-awareness using active listening, guided imagery, and progressive muscle relaxation as well as learning how you can implement mindfulness practices into your own life once the class ends.
