Playing in the Sandbox of Sound |An inter-generational gathering designed to have children, parents and/or grandparents explore the benefits of sound together. Communal drumming, sounding, singing, and making spontaneous music together can bring harmony and healing to many situations. Playing together with various drums, instruments and our voices, in an exploratory, open-minded way, we connect to the power of sound to transform how we feel and interact with each other. Reduce stress and tension. Connect with the soothing comfort of your own heartbeat rhythm. Feel the freedom of being a child again and reconnect with the present moment together. No musical experience needed to have fun!
Exploring the Healing Power of Sound | If you are serious about learning and putting into practice sound healing techniques in your life or in service to others, this is a great starting point. Join us for an afternoon of sound exploration. Participants will experience a variety of sound healing modalities designed to enliven the Spirit, energize the body and reconnect us to a vital, natural instrument we were born with. Be renewed by the power of voice, drums, singing bowls, tuning forks and more! Discover the sound vibrations that resonate for you and activate a higher state of well-being in your daily life and on your unique souls path. Frame drum singing, sound vibration massage and communal sounding will be included during our time together. Frame drums and other sounding instruments will be provided. Just bring yourself, a journal and pen, a drum if you have one, an open heart and mind, and wear comfortable clothes.
Sound Bath | Immersion & Sound Circle | Serenity Through Sound. Spend some quality time with us shedding stress, re-energizing your body and reigniting your life. Part Sound Immersion and part Sound Circle experience - participants will receive and create - balancing passive and active engagement with sound. Relax and let the sound waves of the Planetary gongs wash over you, melting any place that is tight, sore, and stiff away. Quieting mind chatter, and opening up that sense of peace that resides in all of us. You then will arise anew to feel your own heartbeat in the continuous circle of a frame drum. You will feel the beating and pulsing of rhythm, ancient yet new. You will be called to join in with the drum and your voice, unleashing waves of sound with your unique power and strength. You will leave the experience filled up, renewed and excited for the journey.
Water, Color & Sound | Explore the creative power of sound and color through drumming, vocalizing, and watercolor techniques designed to expand your experience of spontaneous flow. Our time together will be spent in equal parts sound circle and in putting color to paper and witnessing how the flow of water moves it effortlessly across the page, creating pleasant surprises and mystical imagery. Deeply meditative and enlivening. You will leave with a deeper awareness of your ability to “go with the flow” and feeling vibrantly alive. Watercolor supplies and frame drums/other percussive instruments provided.
