SpiritArts: Mindfulness Music Making

November 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

With Music therapists, Eric and Lynn Miller and Yuri Yamamoto

Mindfulness is non-judgmental moment- to -moment awareness, which creates presence. Musical Lynn's Tree Logo in ColorMindfulness skills will be explored through voice, instruments and movement. Through a supportive approach, participants develop skills in creating spontaneous music from the heart. The aim is to create authentic music making, utilizing powerful skills such as deep listening. There are no wrong notes when creating musical expression in the moment, yet there are tools for developing inner music. The skills are fun, simple and profound; geared for those who want to go deeper in their own music and for those who have not had much experience creating music for the joy of it! (all instruments/voice/ styles invited)


SpiritArts techniques demonstrate the connection of music and spirituality to guide us toward a “flow” state, enhancing the music to come through us. The benefits include:

  • Creative self-expression, enhanced musicianship
  • Stress reduction, emotional expression
  • Enhanced Spiritual connection
  • Connection with others – collaboration
  • Increased spontaneity
  • Self-empowerment, connection with deeper part of self

Through SpiritArts exercises, we will:

  • Play music for fun, health and well-being (learn skills in healing through sound)
  • Focus on finding comfort with our voice (the voice is an imprint of who we are)
  • Build confidence in expressing self musically and playing with others
