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.
With the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow coming to a close I thought I would take this opportunity to talk about the important connections between climate change, music, mindfulness and meditation. Below I focus on six important and interesting talking points about how we can all do our bit to help our planet. Alongside this, I have added some links to some wonderful charities and organisations that are out there on the front line helping to make our world a better place.
I personally believe that through music anything is possible. To describe a wonderful piece of music in words is near impossible but I’m sure we have all had those goosebump moments where our hair stands on end, perhaps you have even been moved to tears? Our greatest adventures are usually accompanied by a soundtrack. Music can transport us, be used as a tool for expression and help us through our darkest days.
