Book Review: In Tune: Music as the Bridge to Mindfulness

An Emmy-winning composer and professor at the USC Thornton School of Music, Wolf states: "In music, the intuitive aspect of consciousness is tapped, nurtured and encouraged; the same is true in contemplative practice." And with those words, he begins to weave the two concepts together. Through Wolf tried Zen meditation for years, it only became beneficial after he began relating meditative practices to his musical training. Here in his book he presents exercises and techniques drawn from music to introduce aspects of meditation.
