City Silence

Stories from the Well

Year in Review. Who Made It All Possible.

Posted on 12/13/16 by Stacy in From Stacy Sims

This has been an incredible year for City Silence and Mindful Music Moments. So many people have held space for silence and given of their time and energy to create a safe, uncomplicated place for people to gather together in contemplative silence. We are thankful to all of our hosts and our partners in wellness including MotherLove, Ault Park (and Rudy!!), Walnut Hills' crew, UC, Mt. St. Joseph, Cincinnati Public Library, the CAC, Richmond Public Library, our Wyoming Ohio crew, Cheryl in VA, Heather in VA, Amy in Santa Fe, and more (FULL LIST TO COME IN SEPARATE BLOG.)

Mindful Music Moments was just an idea-ready-to-launch one year ago. We kicked it off at AWL with the CSO as lead partner in January of 2016. Now we reach 8000+ students and 2000+ educators EVERY DAY with mindfulness and music.

This would not be possible without YOUR generous contributions. If we overlooked you, please reach out and let us know.
