Weekends and days that aim to develop confidence, range and ease in sounding, singing and listening. I offer a non-judgmental approach along with a sense of open dialogue that enables us to develop sound awareness together, in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
An approach that tunes us in body, voice and feeling. Alignment and understanding arise in opening to a felt sense of vibration and resonance, and to our bodies in movement. Springtime affords us an understanding and enlivened environmental sense of being part of and within this more-than-human world. Our listening widens and we hear afresh.
Singing together is a pleasure as we sound the Seven Shining Tones and melodies from a devotional tradition that honours sound as a path of presence.
Song, as you teach it, is not desire, not
a wooing of something that's finally attained;
song is existence....
learn to forget how you sang....
Real singing is a different kind of breath.
A nothing breath. A ripple in the god. A wind.
- RAINER MARIA RILKE 'Sonnets to Orpheus'
