From microscopic particles to vast star systems everything vibrates in relationship with everything else. Through music, sonic mindfulness, and listening we can attune ourselves to harmonize in deeper ways with these layers of vibration to promote peace, connection, and creativity. 

Offerings

Course

Acousmatic Therapy is a six-module, audio-only program for people dealing with screen fatigue, addiction, and overwhelm. The course invites you to set aside time once a week for listening, rest, and contemplation. By using acousmatic sound, we can rest our eyes while reconnecting with our ability to listen. The course consists of 6 audio-only modules, each pairing a guided meditation with music, soundscapes, and other therapeutic sounds. Think of them as mini-retreats from your daily routine, where you can focus on yourself—and your relationship to the world around you.

Weekly Meditation Group

Sound Sangha is a free weekly online meditation group (“sangha” is a Pali and Sanskrit word that means “community”). Each session lasts 45 minutes, including 20 minutes of meditation and a group discussion centered on listening and mindfulness

“I love being in this circle and I feel so grateful. It is opening portals that I would not be otherwise journeying through.”

Michael Reiley is a composer, musician, and teacher. He creates sonic worlds in the traditions of sound therapy, sacred music, and Deep Listening. His work explores the nexus of inner and outer soundscapes as a mode of transpersonal connection and oneness. Through this exploration spectra of listening consciousness are illuminated including music for sleep, dreaming, meditation, therapy, movement, and focused states of attention/awareness. His music uses techniques and technologies such as drones, binaural beat frequencies, color therapy, data sonification, field recording, tape loops, sacred geometry, esoteric frequency ratios, alternate tuning systems, extended improvisations, sound healing instruments, and more traditional instruments like piano, hand pan, and synthesizer.
Michael is a certified Deep Listening teacher having studied in the linage of composer Pauline Oliveros. He currently teaches at the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. As a sound therapist Michael has studied at the Music for Healing and Transition Program which trains musicians for playing improvised music at the bedside of the sick and dying. As a composer, he has released over a dozen albums on labels such as Healing Sound Propagandist, Sacred Sea Records, White Swan, Pregnant Void, and on his own Sound of Listening imprint. Michael also works as a composer for Wavepaths, a platform providing music experiences for and as psychedelic therapy.
