The Los Angeles Music Meditation Meetup is an endeavor to bring people together to use the creation of sound and music as a form of meditation. No musical experience is necessary at all to come join us! One main axiom of the group is that all people are innately musical and creative. Everyone is encouraged to come with a beginner’s mind, positive and receptive.
After some initial breathing meditation and other centering exercises we launch into spontaneously created music and soundscapes. By focusing upon our own sound making we center ourselves, and by being aware of our contribution to the overall ensemble/environment we expand our sense of self. It’s a great way to relax and reduce stress, and access the deep pools of creativity that lie within us all. It’s also a great way to have fun and experience fellowship!
All are welcome and encouraged to come participate. You’re welcome to bring an instrument or some other sound-making device (pot lids are quite nice) or use what’s available (there is always an abundance of instruments). Chanting/singing is certainly welcome, as are those who simply wish to sit and silently meditate.
