The Open Music Ensemble, a cooperative of professional acoustic improvised music players, is pleased to offer an evening of Music and Meditation on Saturday, October 19, from 7 to 9 PM at the New York Insight Meditation Center, 28 West 27th Street, 10th floor, buzzer #27. This program is suitable for meditators at all levels, from beginners to advanced students.

First, following a period of silence, a short meditation instruction will be offered, then members of the audience are invited to place their attention on the sounds and silences created for them by the Ensemble while they meditate, or to engage I other contemplative practices of their choice. Special instructions for listening meditation may be offered during the program. Finally, after a period of silence, participants are invited to share and discuss their experiences. Musicians will include Nicole DeVault on harp and voice, Philip Foster with spoken word, Nicholas Handahl on transverse flute, Mit Kashiwada on didgeridoo, Jonathan Saraga on trumpet, Ken Silverman on guitar and oud, and others.

The Ensemble has presented this program since 2008 at the Shambhala Center, The Interdependence Project, The Jewish Community Center, the Tibet House, and the New York Insight Meditation Center. Roshi Joan Halifax, abbot of the Upaya Zen Center, described the program as “wonderful”. Many have found the program facilitates a deepening of the practice and an opportunity to experience mindfulness in a new way.
