Going on a soundwalk with Andrea was a blast! She helps you get centered and open up to sounds that you normally wouldn't notice. It's a meditative experience that allows you to become more aware of the world around you, and Andrea also does a lovely job explaining the history of the Marina and the Palace of Fine Arts. We listened in on strangers' conversation, some listening exercises, and enjoyed the natural and human elements around us! This was a lovely experience that I would recommend to everyone, no matter how easily distracted you are.
