About this series:
Join musicians Cornell Kinderknecht and Shelly Niebuhr for a special
three part series on Music As Spiritual Practice
Music has been a vital component to the spiritual journey for
thousands of years by virtually every culture and has a powerful
ability to open our whole being. Through music, we can experience
spiritual healing and a sense of deep belonging.
In nearly every spiritual tradition, sound, music, or vibration is the
Supreme Source of all that is, of all that exits. Music connects us
to something deeper, both inside and outside of ourselves.
In this series, we will explore:
♦ Live Music & Processing
♦ Music & Healing
♦ The Power of Entrainment
♦ Music as a Meditation Tool
This series will be an inspiration to music-lovers, musicians and all
those devoted to "spiritual living."
Course fee: $80
