Much of the ambient, ethereal music that I listen to these days for meditative purposes is minimalist and spare. When I listen to these sounds, it can be as if I am floating gently in a clear, still stream. In this meditative space, there can be an expansiveness that makes way for my awareness and insight to sharpen. I don’t always get there, but when I do, it is certainly pleasant. I want to explore further the use of ambient music in a therapeutic setting.
I have created some enjoyable playlists from artists such as Philip Wilkerson, Deuter, Anugama, Rudy Adrian and Stars of the Lid.
