Just Be Here

The Guide to Musicking Mindfulness
Composer: Cole,

No previous musical experience necessary -no really !

The author – a longstanding counselling therapist and meditation teacher – has taken a new approach to mindfulness and shows that ‘musicking’ does not (just) mean music, and mindfulness does not (just) mean clearing your mind and being in the moment – though that as well, of course…

This approach is also about the Flow and about Relation – with ourselves, with others, with the planet – and about dialogue, and about the encounters we have in our everyday lives.

Start with the “8-Bar Blues – the Blues of this modern life” and then the Solos (even the drummer gets a turn), then the re-work and the coda.

Being a therapist Simon Cole also touches on recurrent themes of distress that so many encounter, namely, loss (whether through death or relationship or job or health), and self-belief.

There are stories told, exercises to develop and to practice, and meditations too. There are also YouTube links to purpose-designed videos and soundtracks by the author to accompany your reading.

The format allows you to feel that you are being carried along on a resonant wave of discovery which can transform into a new way of living
