What is the MindSong Project?
Mindfulness got Patient h69 through the traumatic experience of going blind overnight.
But, she has gone one step further, and by working with neuroscientists at Cambridge University she has created a participatory science-art installation that lets you SEE and hear what your own brain waves look like whilst meditating…you get to try out guided mindfulness techniques yourself for FREE inside the cinema installation then see the incredible visual art that your mindful brain creates…
