Sit in mindful resonance. Mindfulness Outreach Initiative, in collaboration with Orion of Illuminating Hearts, is hosting a special sonic gong-scape for your meditation practice. Follow the strike of the gong and the resulting resonance across all frequencies into infinite drops of emptiness. Step through the sacred threshold of the gong into beingness.

What purpose motivates your listening? How interested and attentive are you to what you’re listening to? We have become so inured to the constant bombardment of auditory sensation that very few take the time to truly listen. One powerful vehicle for cultivating mindfulness can be found through the practice of listening mindfully. Mindful listening in essence is a practice of receptivity where we intentionally bring greater awareness to the experience of listening. With clear attention and interest we can develop the faculties needed to cultivate greater mindfulness in daily life. On behalf of Mindfulness Outreach Initiative, Meditation Teacher Johnathan Woodside will speak about Mindful Listening, the skill of wholehearted listening without expectation, reactive bias, or fabrication.

Orion is sound. Over many years, the didgeridoo, flute, and gong have taught him to resonate with the world from the heart through breath and rhythm. His true nature and calling is being a channel for sacred sounds to hold space for you. Orion knows we are all plucked, strummed, bowed and blown into vibration and resonance by a cosmic love.
