Music and Trance
TEACHER: James Maskalyk
THEME: Music and Trance
MEDITATION: The music is you.
INTERACTIVE PRACTICE: Sing the body electric.
When a tree falls in a forest, and there’s no one there to hear it, does it make a sound? No; it makes vibrations. The sound are made in those tiny drums you carry around in your ears. That’s are how the world crackles in, drums beating, light bouncing off the black backs of eyes, wind turned into electricity by your soft skin. To what? To where? To who? These are the questions that make up you. After a meditation honing our pitch, for the interactive piece, we are going to lie on our backs, and let music do what it does: play our body as a tuning fork, so we can dissolve into notes.
