Sound and Silence

\\\Music invents silence\\\ Octavio Paz from the poem On Reading John Cage 1 This morning, like many mornings I sang as part of a sound practice.

What is the story of your voice?

Growing up we hear many messages about our voices. Many are told they are tone deaf and can\\\t sing. Others are told they are too intense and should tone down. Some are told to keep family secrets or told they are too sensitive. All of these can translate into vocal blocks and inhibit us from expressing our natural heritage as singers. One wread more

SOUNDING SPACE

As humans, we are full of space. We are more bound together by the gaps between our molecules than the fibres which surround them. This is not something we find easy to remember when we are full of stress or congested by the demands of life. At times like this, our minds can feel down by problems which appear to have a real density about them. read more

Open your heart and sing

We must court the voice like a beloved, romance it out of its hiding places and love its eccentricities. read more

Medicine Melodies; Emotional Magic and Music

In the Universe, everything sings: plants, animals, waterfalls, bones, people, the stars, the rain, and many things we don’t see; even silence makes a sound. Every spiritual tradition of the world has used sound to facilitate the passage between states of consciousness. From time immemorial the shaman hears the hidden music of the universe and sings it back through “medicine melodies,” simple tonal configurations that reflect a sacred unity with nature and have the power to heal body, ... read more

When the Music Changes, You Change too

Sound is in the basis of all existence and expresses the relationship between human and cosmic orders. Our ancestors valued sound and music as medicinal, magical, and mystical, and since times immemorial, sound has been use as a gateway to transcendence and the exploration of consciousness by shamans, mystics, healers, scientists, yogis, artists, and sacred lineages of music all over the world. read more

Clearing Emotions

Sound Healing is widely known for being linked to drums, singing bowls, tuning forks, gongs, and other paraphernalia, but is it possible that we are ignoring the most obvious source of sound, the human voice? And I mean speaking, not singing. We can have the most beautiful singing voice, which feels lovely, but when we speak, we can be emanating an energy that is harming. For example, when we are ‘on edge’ or anxious about something, our voice can carry a harshness that grates on sensitive ear read more
