We had a wonderful turnout for today’s Music, Movement and Meditation seminar. Together with Anthony the whole afternoon played out beautifully.
We combined contemplative endeavors like yoga nidra, deep breathing, pranayama and meditation along with periods of gentle, flowing movement & restorative positions – all done to Anthony’s wonderful, melodious playing.
Actually Anthony normally comes with his sitar; this seminar was planned for his guitar. And what a musical endeavor it was. Anthony played classical western music the first hour and then he switched over to a different guitar and played classical Indian music – which sounded very much like his sitar playing. I have included an audio sample below for your listening enjoyment.
So the music was done to perfection and all practitioners were wholly involved in their sadhana. The entire ambiance of the room became totally serene. The sentient vibration was palpable, allowing for deeper periods of meditation and deep relaxation.
I have much gratitude for Anthony’s playing and everyone’s sincere engagement as together it really made for a smooth & wonderful session.
About the below audio sample: Here is Mr Anthony Malatesta on guitar playing classical Indian music. There are three separate clips. The second starts at 1:40 and the third at 3:21.
