Contemplative Arts Series: Music, Meditation and the Creative Process


with Rachel Faro
May 1 / 7:30 PM - May 1 / 9:30 PM

Where does music come from? For a musician it seems to arise from space, from nowhere in particular.  For many musicians it truly does feel like a 'gift' because there is a sense that you don't personally own it, you simply discover it.  Although modern culture does produce sounds that embody aggression and confusion, music from a Shambhala point of view embodies basic goodness, confidence and openness.

RACHEL FARO is the founder and coordinator of the Miami Shambhala Meditation Group.  A close student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, she has been practicing, studying and teaching within the Shambhala lineage since 1972.  She is also a well-known singer/songwriter, a Grammy-nominated record producer, film composer and the president of Ashe Records, a world music record label.
