About this Event

(中文請捲動頁面)

From 12nd of May, Shane Aspegren, artist of HART Haus Social Studio, will be hosting Holistic Sound, a group sound therapy session at HART Haus in Kennedy Town on every Tuesday. Shane will apply his multifaceted background as a contemporary artist and experimental musician, as well as through his longtime holistic practices of yoga and meditation* on this traditional sound bath programme.

With the positive effects of sound and vibrations, the healing response of the body and mind will be naturally activated. The sessions aim to help the calm nervous mind of the public in the era of tensed emotions, which is essential to the well-being of our mental health. This programme also acts as a platform to present the creative practices of the artist cultivated in HART Haus, exploring how arts can be applied to different practices for a broader audience. While the participants are relaxed in their meditative states, in the sharing session after the exercise they can learn more about sounds and sound healing from the artist.

For optimal experience, each weekly session will be held for only 5 participants. Understanding the current health concerns, enquiry on private sessions - which focus on individual healing, is welcome. In one-on-one sessions, the same instruments (that are used the group sound bath) are placed around, as well as directly onto the physical body, providing a more direct and intense experience. 

Please bring your own eye mask/ a cloth for optimal experience, and wearing a face mask is encouraged for health concerns.

Modern science is now validating the positive healing effects of sound and vibrational therapeutic techniques, which have been employed for centuries in cultures around the world. For many people, these ancient technologies are a natural gateway to meditative states and cell stimulation, triggering the healing response of the parasympathetic nervous system—switching away from the fight or flight mode that our modern society encourages. 

The experience of a group sound bath can be considered not only as an auditory meditation, but also as a gentle massage for the physical and subtle bodies, including the mind. It encourages and supports the human's natural ability of self-healing—boosting immunity, reducing stress, altering our habitual state of consciousness and cultivating a place of well-being—all of which are immensely important in these stressful times.

*Shane is certified as RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance, in addition to an advanced certificate in Integrated Vibrational Therapy.

HART Haus 匯舍的藝術家 Shane Aspegren 將於5月12日開始,每週二在堅尼地城的 HART Haus 舉辦《Holistic Sound》聲音冥想活動,將他創作當代藝術和實驗音樂的實踐,以及長期鍛練瑜珈和冥想的經驗*應用至聲音治療上。

藝術家將利用聲音和振動療法的正面效果,自然推動參加者的身體與心靈上的自癒機制,希望幫助大眾在這充滿壓力的抗疫時期抒緩緊張的情緒,對心靈健康至關重要;與此同時節目也將是一個平台,讓藝術家展現在匯舍創作藝術的成果,探索如何將藝術應用至生活中,並推向更廣的受眾。體驗幫助放鬆的冥想後,藝術家會引導參與者作深入交流分享,讓大家領略聲音藝術的不同面向和實踐。

確保活動最佳效果,每個環節只會容納最多 5 名參加者。因應健康考量,藝術家亦可就參加者需要而額外安排針對性的一對一體驗,是為一整全和更直接的療癒,詳情請與 HART 團隊查詢。

為達致最佳體驗,請自備眼罩或遮眼布;體驗期間請戴上口罩。活動將以英文進行。

當代科學已證實聲音和振動療法的正面效用。事實上數個世紀以來,世界各地的人們早已運用聲音治療。對很多人來說,這些古代手法是達致冥想和刺激細胞的自然渠道,引發交感神經的自癒反饋,有助解除現代生活往往引致的或戰或退(fight or flight mode)緊張狀態。

而群體聲音浴的體驗不單是帶聲響的冥想,還是對身體物理甚至心靈上撫慰。聲音浴刺激了人體自然的自癒體制,增強免疫力、減壓、轉換我們意識的尋常狀態,成為培養心靈健康的容器。一切對於現今充滿壓力的時代尤其重要。

*Shane 擁有 Yoga Alliance 國際標準 RYT-200 證書,以及 Integrated Vibrational Therapy 的高級證書。

Artist Biography

Shane Aspegren’s unique approach to the traditional group sound bath is influenced by his multifaceted background as a contemporary artist and experimental musician, as well as through his longtime holistic practices of yoga and meditation*. Using traditional instruments such as large meditation gongs and Tibetan singing bowls as the fundamental basis, he expands by incorporation of subtly amplified elements—sine waves and tuning forks of specific frequencies, as well as a custom-made instrument called the Duofluctus, which vibrates its strings through electro-magnetic resonance.

See Shane playing the Duofluctus in a more experimental setting at the 2019 Venice Biennale with the below video.

Shane Aspegren 將創作當代藝術和實驗音樂,以及長期鍛練瑜珈和冥想的經驗應用至聲音治療上。他以冥想用的大型銅鑼和頌缽等傳統樂器作為基礎,加上適度元素,包括正弦波(Sine waves)和特定頻譜的音叉,以及以電磁共振震動,名為 Duofluctus 自製樂器。
