Big on Meditation

I think I would have benefitted from reading this with someone else a little better versed than myself in the concepts of deep listening, particularly as there are lots of exercises. There was a lot that appealed to me about the subject and I liked in particular how consciousness can be influenced by our 'sonic environment'. It seems fitting that a lot of this book should be given over to meditation techniques to help engage a deeper state of consciousness in order to perform deep listening, but at times it felt a little bit heavy on instruction. Still, an interesting text.
