TICKET BOOKS WELCOME
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our special meditation and music program which will be unlike anything The Maverick has done before. We are seeking to manage it most effectively and you can help!
1.) Please maintain silence at all times during the event—except during the two “conversational” parts of the evening or if you choose to find your way to the “quiet sharing” portion of the parking lot set aside for this activity during the intermission.
2.) If you choose not to participate in a particular guided meditation practice that is fine. Please, though, be careful that you do not distract others from their participation.
3.) Please do not clap unless expressly invited to do so. Thank you!
4.) The parking lot will be closed at the beginning of the event so please plan to arrive on time. Unless there is an emergency, please do not drive your car out of the parking lot until the performance is ended.
A DEEP BOW OF GRATITUDE FROM KAVI, FREDERIC, THE MAVERICK BOARD, AND STAFF FOR YOUR ENTHUSIASM.
With FREDERIC CHIU, piano and STEPHEN COPE, scholar-in-residence and Kripalu Ambassador, founder and former director of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living
Research shows that heightened qualities of mindfulness can profoundly affect our appreciation of and joy in music. Join collaborators Stephen Cope and Frederic Chiu for an evening of sublime music enjoyed in the context of a variety of simple techniques to enhance the listening experience of body, mind, and spirit. If you are a lover of classical music, and are open to learning and experimenting with basic mindfulness techniques, we encourage you to join us for this innovative evening which will include inspiring music of Bach, Chopin, Debussy, Glass and selections from Chiu’s magnificent collection of hymns and dervishes by Gurdjieff/De Hartmann.
An interweaving of classical music with meditation, chanting and “loving silence” communication.
This concert is generously sponsored by Stephen McGrath and Janine Shelffo
