Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, enjoy musical guidance from composer and concert pianist Murray Hidary.
On July 30th, people from all over the five boroughs will be taking a Silenthike. The event is a concept by MindTravel – an immersive music and meditation experience company created by the aforementioned Murray Hidary. During the SilentHike session, each participant will wear wireless headphones and hike through the garden with soothing music and thoughtful commentary from Hidary.
Hidary’s talents don’t simply include musical composition, he also delivers compelling Tedx Talks and is a former tech guru with a passion for physics. He draws on his expertise across all these disciplines to create his MindTravel concept. As a child, he developed a deep love for music and discovered the power of music when it was the only thing that helped him heal after the tragic loss of his sister in a motorcycle accident.
Silenthikes and Silentwalks are a form of meditation in motion, providing a relaxing and thoughtful experience for all participants. While typical meditation is an isolated retreat, Silenthikes look to expand that concept and develop a sense of being present in the world around us.
All the components of the experience – music, words, silence, visual cues – are meant to work synergistically to help participants connect with their innermost thoughts and develop a deeper connection with the world around them.
