What to expect

Simply come after a busy day, bring your favourite cosy blanket and a willingness to be supported into shifting back into a safe inner space of relaxation, presence and meditation.

You will be welcomed and invited to take a place sitting or laying down in the beautiful Studio of The Salisbury Centre .  Some short nervous system relaxing and resetting practices, using easy movements and sounds, might be offered before the start of the session.

Then simply listen and receive what is shared and sung.

During the session there might also be the opportunity, may you wish so, to use your voice to join in some mantras and harmonies to help connect and relax through using your voice.

Opportunities for Musicians

The intention behind these events is both to offer a sanctuary space for offering the healing power of music to the Community and whoever might wish to attend, as well as to gradually bring together artists, audiences and communities to explore the transformational, unifying and healing powers of sound, encouraging collaboration, co-creation and improvisation between artists.
