UK, LANCASHIRE - The Yoga of Vocal Sound , James D'Angelo , The Sanctuary of Healing Langho Blackburn BB6 8AF, 25 Feb 2017

Our essential blissful nature is vibration as expressed through pure consciousness, heart-centred love and, at a practical level, by the harmonious sounds of the human voice.. To be that Self is to dissolve all the stresses, in whatever form, that impede those vibrations. The greatest use of the voice is to re-tune ourselves in body, mind and, above all, spirit.

In this course James will offer vocal toning practices, East and West, that focus on the transformation of the chakras, those wheels of energy that comprise many of our psychological attributes – rootedness, creative flow, authority, compassion and communication among others. There is a simplicity to these practices, using only vowels, consonants and seed syllables, which enable the participants to easily and affectively draw the chakras towards their optimum rate of whirling. He complements some of the vocal sound with simple Tai Chi like movements, which he has created, that encourage and direct the sounds. This work is in two phases: First the active where the participants produce these mantra-like tones and stimulate the energy centres and then second, the meditative stage where they listen within and contemplate the effects of those sounds. These phases are equal in the therapeutic effects they produce.

James also includes natural sound rituals with some movement which benefit the wholeness of a person. For example, humming and laughter. Then there are the special and unusual Taoist healing sounds/ seated movements directed at the organs of the body and their affiliated emotions. These are valuable for those who place undue stress on an organ through readily expressing negative emotions. The participants are given a taste of tuning forks as a centering tool. James also includes chanting and collective improvisation in this very varied approach to therapeutic vocal sound.

This course empowers the participants to take home the techniques offered and practice them on a daily basis. So, in that sense, the course is complete in itself and is not one of levels. No experience is necessary and no one is asked to make any sounds on their own, creating greater relaxation. They produce their own intuitive notes which gives much more freedom of expression. All that is required is the sincere intent to transform their limited self into their unlimited Self. It is this emotional intention that makes the sounds sacred.

Anyone interested in coming on the course has the opportunity to explore James’s website www.soundspirit.co.uk It includes an extensive interview with James in which he explores the techniques he uses. Furthermore, he has two published books on the practices of therapeutic vocal sound: The Healing Power of the Human Voice and Seed Sounds for Tuning the Chakras. The publishers, Inner Traditions International, are one of the major companies producing New Age books.
