Mind The Dog – Mindfulness Sessions

At Download 2019 for the first time ever Downloaders could immerse themselves in mindfulness with our new Mind The Dog sessions in the Doghouse.

Mind The Dog ran morning, afternoon and evening sessions in The Doghouse from Thursday and throughout the weekend.

Morning meditation was hosted by curated live music sessions to get Downloaders ready for the day. Whilst, the afternoon offered a healing sound bath, so Downloaders could pause, connect, and tune into themselves. In the evening class Downloaders were introduced to a calming focus to elevate your state of consciousness.

Designed with conscious breath work sessions, Mind The Dog aimed to bring Downloaders together in the now, becoming closer to themselves, the music, and each other.
