Music Meditation

The human body is a “sounding board”, awaiting the positive influences of therapeutic sounds, in which pitch, volume, resonance and harmony play a vital role.

Music is the voice of the universe: When we hear music we are actually vibrating with the whole group gathered and with the sounds, notes of the music. Each person is a centre of energy, continually influenced by other energies, light and colour and sound. Of these the most powerful is sound. As music is played live at Music meditation your require nothing more than to listen.

What can Music meditation (sound therapy) do for you?
Selected live music can bring about a dramatic shift in your energy levels and your overall feeling of wellbeing. Music can by pass our minds logical and analytical filters and make direct contact with profound feelings and passions deep in our memory and imagination. This in turn produces physical reactions. Sound is a potent force. The music composed and played by Katy Tsai and co-musicians has been mindfully created to ensure the essence of peace and calm.

What is the difference between meditating to live sound and a recording?
The experience of music meditation is like going to listen to a live symphony, where you are part of the experience. You get to experience the sound vibrations travelling through your body. Seeing it live you FEEL the energy and the passions and emotions of the sound. Sure its great to re-live the experience later with a recording BUT there is a difference. Live music is an experience that evokes a feeling and memory. Live music is a MOMENT in TIME.

What can live music do for our body and mind?
As sound waves enter the body, sympathetic vibrations naturally occur in our cells, which help to restore and reinforce healthy internal organisation.
