Where does music come from? For a musician it seems to arise from space, from nowhere in particular.  For many musicians it truly does feel like a 'gift' because there is a sense that you don't personally own it, you simply discover it. 

Although modern culture may produce sounds that embody aggression and confusion, music from a Shambhala point of view embodies basic goodness, naturalness, confidence and openness.

On this evening we will discuss these qualities are expressed in music, how music is an expression of joining heaven and earth, the path of meditation and music and participate in a conversation regarding the process of making music in relation to our individual path in life.

We will then have our first Dharma Jam in our new space! Bring your instruments and your listening ears.
