Listen to the episode:

Entrepreneur. Composer. Artist. Tech pioneer. Mindful leader. These are just a few words that describe Murray Hidary. Early in his career, Murray had great success on the internet by introducing new technology before most people knew it existed.

Then, after growing and selling several successful businesses, Murray went back to his first love—classical composing. He then discovered a way to meld music, tech, and our growing interest in mindfulness with his newest venture, MindTravel.

MindTravel is a one-of-a-kind immersive musical event. Participants will view the world from a different perspective after experiencing live, improvised musical compositions that reflect the unique surroundings. These locations have included places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Grace Cathedral, and Burning Man, as well as in cities, theatres, beaches, and parks around the world. 

He also ties MindTravel with discussions about entrepreneurship, creativity, and life in general. More recently, he’s introduced the MindTravel SilentWalk and MindTravel SilentHike, which offer participants a new way of seeing their surroundings.
