The Shinnyo Center for Meditation and Well-being will present a unique meditation series that combines Shinnyo guided meditation with live jazz music performances.

Led by Shinnyo meditation guide Eitaro Hayashi, with accompaniment by Nick Gianni on saxophone and Arlen Hart on keyboards, the session will introduce live music and the relaxation benefits of meditation.

Music has often been used as a background for yoga, massage and exercise, but music can also be the focus of meditation practice. Jazz as an art form is based on being completely focused in the present moment. The Jazz Meditation sessions will explore this concept as musicians play off the words of the meditation guide who in-turn will reflect the musical accompaniment in the leading of his practice to audience members.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
