Ladies & Gentlemen, I present String Theory Cello Ensemble…………

www.stringtheorycelloensemble.comI have always found music a wonderful aid to meditation – it helps me to control my chattering monkey mind and go in deeper! If the piece is right, it is wonderful to go on an inward guided journey out of your present space and feel peace and tranquility. So I was very happy to hear about String Theory Cello Quartet because that is exactly what they create – music to mediate to. There is something very emotional about using the string instruments too in my opinion. All in all a fabulous idea I think.

They have some lovely samples on their site for you to listen to. Just Click on Music Tracks to access them.

As the lovely ladies from STCE say in their leaflet:

“Stillness is vital to our sense of well-being: to our ability to reflect. Many people turn to music to find solace there and use it as a focus for their trials and tribulations. Music serves as a mediation for the player and listener alike.” I had never thought of it like that! 

“String Theory have created a musical meditation which threads together sacred and secular vocal music of the Rennaissance. The music mirrors a journey from the cares of the world, to a still point at its centre. From there you are lead forward to face the world refreshed. This is not a typical concert, but more of an event: the emsemble play the cycle continuously and you receive the music. “

Sounds very interesting to me. I am eager to have a listen. I will tell you more about future events as soon as I have further information from Annie Ashton, Una Birtchnell, Fiona Murphy and Catherine Black.

FREE, YES FREE FABULOUS GUIDED MEDITATIONS…

You calm your mind down with Meditation. It can be as basic as just breathing slowly and letting go. No matter how deep you choose to go in, you will always benefit from it and come out refreshed.

Whether you are new to meditation or have done it before, these are great, peaceful sessions. The Brahma Kumaries international site has these six:

The best way to go through these is to find somewhere quite where you are comfortable and at the right temperature. You can sit in any position you like, eyes open or closed. Try different ways and you will soon come to realise what works for you. And just listen to the meditation. If your mind wonders, that’s ok. Bring it back as soon as you are conscious that you have drifted.

For many of us, not taking care of our minds can be very detrimental. So it’s worth investing in your mind even for just a few minutes to a few hours a day. Out of 24 hours in the day, take a bit out for you. Even if you are just sitting in silence observing your breathing pattern. You will receive some amazing solace.

Anyone can meditate, from a child to a senior person. Kids benefit really well from it because they are not afraid to try it. They just let go and have a wonderful experience.

There are many CD’s you can buy if you struggle to get with how to meditate. Just go into any search engine and add “meditation CD” and go through the list. As mentioned before, Anne Jones has some great ones on her CD’s.  

Good luck!
