Meditate to an entire album at The Indigo Project.
With multi-screen technology and life's general background noise perpetually present, many of us have lost touch with music, you know, actually listening to it. We've wound up with some not-so-flash listening skills, putting a playlist on in the background and switching off. But psychology and mindfulness studio, The Indigo Project, has discovered a nifty way to help you tune back into that big, beautiful world of sound.
Once a month, the Surry Hills space hosts a music-driven meditation session called Listen Up, drawing on a mix of modern mindfulness, psychology, and music therapy techniques. No phones allowed.
By channelling strong attention to those tunes, students can work on clearing focus, opening the mind, and getting those creative juices flowing the way they should. Not to mention, they'll likely discover a newfound appreciation of music.
Each of the hour-long sessions will centre on a different acclaimed artist's album. This month's will find you meditating to Spaces, the 2013 beauty from Berlin-based composer Nils Frahm.
