WORKSHOP INFO

Sunday Mornings on Sept 26, Oct 17, Nov 21 and Dec 5
11 AM – 1 PM

Attentive Gathering ~ all ears all minds

Deep Listening®, originated by Pauline Oliveros is a form of meditation based on experiencing heightened awareness of sound, silence and sounding.

Deep Listening® is a philosophy and practice that distinguishes the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary selective nature of listening. The result of the practice cultivates appreciation of sounds on a heightened level, expanding the potential for connection and interaction with one’s environment, technology and performance with others in music and related arts.
