MindTravels is a creative collaboration between Josh and English poet Mark Hutchinson. Since 2019, they have been creating guided reflections using Mark’s words and Josh’s improvised piano playing. Straddling the areas around and between mindfulness and mental health awareness, the combination of the music, the words and the creativity in action leads to a unique experience – invigorating and calm, inviting the listener to take stock and also to take decisions. Initially for use in Unitarian services (Mark is a Unitarian minister and Josh is organist and director of music at Dublin Unitarian Church), they have more recently begun a podcast featuring a new guided reflection each week. They also released their debut CD simply titled MindTravels in August 2022.
