WoCo Launch Festival: Meditation on Hildegard

This experiential performance integrates cello, vibration, nature sounds, and the breath in a musically-guided meditation inspired by the mystical medieval writings and music of Hildegard von Bingen and Deep Listening works by Pauline Oliveros. Participants will be invited to listen deeply as they are led through a series of exploratory meditations to center the listener’s energy as they focus their breathe and reception to sound. Each participant will receive a sample of oil inspired by Hildegard’s herbalism writings and participants can breath in the healing properties of herbs such as peppermint and rosemary while they settle in to the warm vibrations of the cello. All are welcome and participants are encouraged to dress comfortably and bring a pillow, blanket, or yoga mat.
