Please join MusiCares, Emmy Award winning producer, Richard "Wolfie" Wolf and guest panelist, GRAMMY-nominated, Justin Boreta of Glitch Mob, for the first in our series of workshops on Meditation and Mindfulness. We will discuss the benefits of mindfulness and explore various practices of meditation that can enhance the wellbeing of the music community. Each webinar will conclude with a 10-minute guided meditation.

Wolf started practicing Zen meditation as a teen and his class at USC on the harmonies between Music & Mindfulness is the first on a university level to demonstrate how the different practices can interact and strengthen each other. His book “In Tune: Music As The Bridge To Mindfulness” was written up in The New Yorker -which called it “a manual for achieving calm in a tumultuous world ” - Parade, Mindful Magazine, Spirituality & Health and others, and is the basis for the podcast “Wolf In Tune”.
