Dan Hooke believes music is created when a community of sound and rhythms work together in harmony. Likewise, when our communities listen and act in harmony, we can better enjoy our day to day activities. Finding that harmony is the living mediation, with this we can gain a practice of listening to better our understanding. When we become better at receiving, we can become better at giving, and life becomes easier to appreciate.
