31 musical meditations for your month

Through this article I would like to share 31 musical meditations. One for you to practise every day of the month. Most of them are really quite short, a few of them require a little bit more time but I’ve designed them to fit into your day no matter what. You can try them at your desk to give your mind a rest whilst at work or save them for the evening to help you rewind and relax. As with all of our mindful practices, if and when you find your mind wandering off, simply acknowledge where it’s gone and bring it back to the focus, whatever that may be. I hope you have a wonderful month, whatever may be in store for you.

When I invite you to listen, all I want you to do is listen. Try to avoid multi-tasking. Make time to focus on just listening.

I invite you to…
1. Listen to the sounds of your breath for two minutes.
2. Go for a walk and spend some of that time listening to the sounds of your footsteps.
3. Listen to your favourite piece of music.
4. Listen to a piece of music you’ve never heard before.
