We're really delighted to be developing 'Mindfulness for Creatives' sessions with Susanne and Spitalfields Music. More here
Susanne Olbrich is a pianist, music educator and mindfulness teacher. She discovered mindfulness practice in 1996 in Plum Village, Thich Nhat Hanh’s practice centre in France, and it became a deeply nourishing, sustaining and transformative part of her daily life. Susanne has an ongoing fascination with exploring mindfulness, music and creativity alongside each other, and she enjoys offering workshops and retreats to that effect. She completed teacher trainings with Plum Village as well as in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-based Living (MBLC).
Susanne has led Days of Mindfulness and Retreats for Plum Village UK and for the Mindful Artists Network which she co-founded. She has a Master’s in Music from Oldenburg University (Germany) and an MSc in Mindfulness from the University of Aberdeen. With her band Marama Trio she has recorded the album “Continuations”, original music inspired by classical, jazz, folk and world music.
