Explore your city in a whole new way and allow yourself to be carried away by a deep feeling of freedom and connection with MindTravel SilentWalk. This music-driven experience is a new way to practice walking meditation while fostering a greater connection to the world around us, to each other and to yourself.
This magical SilentWalk journey is led by MindTravel creator and composer, Murray Hidary as part of the 70-City MindTravel SilentHike Tour Across North America in 2020.
This is a FREE experience and MindTravel accepts donations from attendees onsite and online after the experience. You’ll have the opportunity to contribute to The MindTravel Foundation or to purchase MindTravel Music to help support our continued commitment to bringing free and low-cost music experiences to communities across the globe. Find out more about The MindTravel Foundation below.
ABOUT THE MINDTRAVEL SILENTWALK EXPERIENCE
Over the course of the MindTravel SilentWalk experience, you’ll join other MindTravelers exploring the world’s most beautiful gardens, parks and trails, or beaches while guided by MindTravel music delivered through MindTravel headphones that are provided onsite. The evocative, improvisational piano music ignites freedom and expansiveness that amplifies the healing and inspirational power of being surrounded by beauty.
After a short introduction and intention-setting, the group will venture forth on a guided journey through the precious blooming bluebonnets and surrounding gardens before settling in for a powerful live-to-headphones piano concert at sunset –enveloped in the transcendent sounds of the beautiful, original MindTravel compositions.
MindTravel will provide the wireless headphones.
“…as I met with the MindTravel group and put on headphones to embark on a two-hour tour of the Getty galleries, grounds and gardens while listening to original music and a guided visit — not so much of the paintings but of my inner life — being rocked pretty much sums up what happened.” -Martha McCully, The Los Angeles Times
More About MindTravel
Music is a catalyst for transformation, clarity, connection and purpose. And music is at the core of MindTravel, an immersive music experience created by Murray Hidary. Hidary, a composer, pianist, visual artist, tech pioneer, entrepreneur and physics lover, created MindTravel in 2014 after finding that music helped him heal after the tragic death of his sister. Now, he is on a mission to share music’s healing power with others and make it the centerpiece of a multi-sensory meditative journey.
“MindTravel is an experience like no other. Imagine a concert pianist improvising beautiful, peaceful music with imagery in the background that matches the beauty of the music — combined, it is almost meditative or trancelike.” – Jason Wachob, Founder of mindbodygreen
