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.The Shinnyo Center for Meditation and Well-being
