Welcome! I’m Michael Reiley—a musician, composer, and teacher. The offerings I create through Sound of Listening are to help people discover the transformative and healing potential of sonic mindfulness. From guided meditations, to music for wellness, to overnight dream concerts, to live sound baths, and 1-on-1 sound therapy discover how sound and listening can help us heal, focus, and connect with ourselves and one another.
Michael is hosting a weekly meditation group on Zoom:
- Fridays 12:00 – 12:45pm ET
- Guided Mindfulness of Listening meditation
- Exploring the gateway of listening into the world of Mindfulness
- Discussion around a topic at the intersection of meditation, sound, listening, awareness, and attention
The class and guided meditation focuses on classic mindfulness-based meditation practices, as well as the work of Pauline Oliveros (Deep Listening), R. Murray Schafer (Soundscapes), Kay Gardener (Sounding the Inner Landscapes), Ajahn Amaro (Inner Listening), Thich Nhat Hahn, and Nada Yoga.
and Sound Therapy
for Individuals & Groups
My work uses the principles of sound therapy and Deep Listening to create recordings, concerts, meditations, teachings, workshops, and sound healing journeys.
