Exploring the Sound Walk

Let’s take a sound walk

Active listening in a noisy world

Mindfulness has become an area of great importance in the past 18 months. We live in a world of high stimulation, with our senses bombarded with information, often becoming overloaded. At times we forget to simply stop…and listen.

This workshop will introduce the concepts of sound walks, sound mapping and active listening through gentle activities and interactive exercises. Participants will be invited to collect sounds and to compose reflections on these sounds. This will be a highly creative workshop where we will compose soundscapes and create our own sound walk, unique to the group.

Please note, when booking your place you will be asked to provide an address to which the materials package can be posted too.
