The Wellbeing Orchestra utilises Tibetan singing bowls and an assortment of allied musical instruments to facilitate mindfulness and meditation. Through sound, breathing, mindfulness, meditation techniques and self reflection, the student will learn to harmonise an unfocussed mind, release from self judgement and find a sense of peace within the busyness of study and work whilst developing an increased sense of personal wellbeing. The experiential nature of teaching and learning in this subject is intended to help students understand knowledge transfer that occurs outside of text based learning modalities particularly through somatic awareness.

Intended learning outcomes

Upon completion of this subject students should be able to:

  • Understand experiential learning modalities as distinct from text based
  • Demonstrate a technical facility with the instruments of the ensemble
  • Demonstrate breathing and mindfulness meditation techniques
  • Demonstrate an ability to maintain focus in performance
  • Understand the nature and role of self within the performing ensemble
  • Define the concept of well being in terms of community and personal self
  • Understand the link between meditation and well being
