Keeping Well – Mindful Music 19th June from 13.15 – 14.00
Hilary Moss will lead an experiential session combining music and mindfulness. This 40 minute session will offer you a few moments in your busy day to rest, relax, release tension and find calm. Hilary is Course Director of the MA Music Therapy at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance. She will tap into her twenty years’ experience as a music therapist to help you relax and find a few moments of mindfulness and calm.
The session is informal and experiential. One of the best ways to relax and find perspective is to focus on your senses. Normally in mindfulness meditation you focus on your breathing, in music therapy we use music to help you focus on beauty, to slow down your heartrate and to rest.
Following a mindful music session, Hilary will share music based ideas and activities to use to promote self motivation, relaxation, positive engagement with your children and support for older relatives living alone. We will end the session with some singing – singing is a powerful activity that promotes deep breathing, tension release, connection with others, body awareness and fun. (Don’t worry, thanks to virtual music making no one will hear you sing except yourself!).
This session aims to support your health and well-being. The power of 5 minutes mindfulness are well proven. We invite you to make this part of your work or study timetable and to tap the power of music to shift your mood. Come along and see!
