About this event

“Breathing in, I come home to the Earth – breathing out, I’m in love with the Earth.” Thich Nhat Hanh

In this series of sessions, we explore and strengthen our connection with the Earth through mindfulness, music and sound. We are part of the Earth, and the Earth is part of us. As we deepen the awareness of our interbeing through the body, listening and creativity, there will be space to relax and be playful, to become grounded and present.

Everyone is welcome to join, whether you have a musical background or not.

Bring whatever instruments you have, including drums, shakers and small percussion of any kind.

“This is an extraordinarily beautiful workshop!” Cynthia Cadwell Pegado, Buffalo (US)
“What a great evening it was, very many thanks. It’s incredibly creative, very inspiring and good fun!” L.P., UK


Our vision for the monthly Mindfulness & Music sessions is to over time build a sangha/community around the healing and nourishing experiences of mindfulness, creativity, music-making, deep listening, relaxation and togetherness.

SUSANNE OLBRICH is a pianist, music educator and mindfulness teacher. She discovered mindfulness practice in 1996 with Thich Nhat Hanh at Plum Village and became a Dharma teacher in 2016. Susanne loves sounds and silence and offers workshops, courses, retreats and 1-to-1 work.

JOE HOLTAWAY is a singer song writer and workshop leader. His songs and playing are inspired by a folk music upbringing and involvements in peace and social justice movements. For many years he has been involved with education as a group singing facilitator.
