The Art of Sound

About this Event

Limited to 8 people!

With the help of Darrell Wright, this program will be offered on the 3rd Tuesday of every month from January to June. This is an informal exploration of sound and how it affects our lives, the importance of conscious listening and use of sound in meditation. Each month we will explore a different area of sound or type of sound meditation. We hope that you will spend some time exploring the topics before you arrive so that you can contribute to the conversation! All sessions are love donation. We hope you will commit to all 6 sessions. As spaces are limited please book the appropriate tickets so we know who to expect and please let us know if something comes up and you can't make it.

January

How We Got to Now: Examine the impact of sound on work, race relations, medicine and the radical alteration of cities. In this introductory session you will meet your fellow listeners, and watch a fascinating documentary hosted by best selling author Steven Johnson.

February

Chakra Chanting with Shruti Box: Shruti, (Sanskrit: “What Is Heard”) in Hinduism, the most-revered body of sacred literature, considered to be the product of divine revelation. Shruti works are considered to have been heard and transmitted by earthly sages. The shurti box is a traditional Indian instrument that is similar to a harmonium as it works on a system of bellows, but uses switches instead of keys in order to control the pitch.

March

The Sounds We Can't Hear. How do they affect us? UNTRUE AS IT is, there is something wonderful about the notion that you can hear the ocean when you hold a conch to your ear, a beguiling fantasy that if you listen hard enough you can hear the womb-sound of the world. The systems used to study infrasound are less poetic; But they make the seashell’s promise real. They let you hear far-off oceans.

April

Chakra Meditation with Crystal Bowls: Singing bowls have been used for meditation, music, relaxation, personal well being, and healing energy using specific notes (a, b, c, d, e, f & g) produced by the bowls and their affect on the chakras.

May

Are You Really Listening? Everyone thinks they’re great listeners. ... Hearing isn’t necessarily listening, nor is it necessarily listening well. ... Just because you’re quiet and you let others do 75% of the talking, doesn’t mean you’re a good listener. We will start this session with a sharing circle before exploring ways to improve our relationships by becoming better listeners.

June

Gong Sound Bath: The sound and vibrational energy of gongs is an ancient and powerful tool used to help still the mind and allow the body to deeply relax. During the gong bath, multiple gongs and mallets are used to bring out the full spectrum of beneficial vibrations and frequencies. Just as a body massage works out tight and knotted muscles, during the "sonic massage" the listener only has to let go and let the sound of the gong do the work.
