Music & Meditation

This course is no longer being offered.

Course Description

This course is being transitioned from on-campus to online. It may involve attending virtual class meetings via Zoom or some other meeting tool at various points throughout the session. Your instructor will arrange those meeting times once the course has begun; otherwise, the course will be conducted wholly online.

The duration, course credit, and fees associated with the course are the same as they would have been for on-campus Summer Session courses, which are the equivalent of full-semester Brown University courses, though offered in a condensed, seven-week format.

To ensure you are prepared, take the online readiness survey here:

Music and Meditation explores the contemplative nature of sonic experience from humanistic, artistic and scientific perspectives.

By drawing from various traditions across both time and space, and by engaging with a variety of disciplinary methodologies from Contemplative Studies, Music, Ethnomusicology, Religious Studies, Cognitive Science and Performance Studies, we will seek to better understand how diverse communities have used music as a meditative tool, a mystical philosophy, a communal exercise, a ritual performance, and more.
