Start your day with our encore stream of WQXR’s guided meditation series, created and hosted by New York Times contributing critic Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim.
This session features vocalist Jen Shyu, instrumentalist gamin and Kaoru Watanabe on Japanese flutes and drums.
Watch the stream below at 9am ET:
Beginner’s Ear brings you closer to the music by opening the mind to both silence and sound. Each 60-minute session begins with a mindfulness teacher leading participants in a 15-minute guided meditation. Out of the resulting deep stillness, a 30-minute musical performance emerges and recedes back into the rich calm. The event wraps with a short conversation about aspects of mindful listening.
This event originally aired on January 24, 2020.
