  • Mindfulness in Sound : Tune in to the world around us

    Mindfulness in Sound : Tune in to the world around us

    £10.99
    Our world is brimming with sound: from the detonation of distant thunder to the drip, drip drip of a rusty drainpipe. Once we've been shown how to listen more attentively and creatively, we can access a deeper, more lasting meditation. Our thoughts, dreams and daydreams might be carried along a stream of birdsong, or punctuated by a rush of unexpected laughter.

    Learning about sound--where, how and why it comes into being--is learning about the world itself. In Mindfulness in Sound, Mark Tanner encourages us to consider afresh the origins of resonance and the wider impact of natural sound in our daily lives. Through simple meditations, he shows us how we can become more receptive to a hinterland of beautiful as well as challenging noise, and tune into the soundtrack of our own imagination.

    As we consider the nature of sound--and the sound of nature--we will find ourselves connected more vibrantly to the world we live in and to a more sustainable inner peace.
