I belong

I want to belong

I want to belong

And I resist as if belonging will kill me, subsume me, fold me into a cavern of oblivion, of no-thing-ness, of no air, no breathing.

It frightens me.

I cannot trust… but I want to, because I want to belong.

A different kind of silence

‘Yes, we were very close. We spoke often, and easily. I love him. It was sudden – we think a heart attack.’

Suddenly a silent weight drops down a deep, long, vertical tunnel with no apparent sides. It takes its time until it hits the floor of the echo chamber and an ageless pain radiates outward in concentric circles. Other times an old man’s boot thrashes against the inside of my cavernous chest, bruising the ribs and sending a heat, with sound, that carries on traveling, as if forever, back to a place in the future where an old man sits and remembers he has been waiting a long time for it to arrive.

Field of Resonance – changing reality through sound.

On June 30, 2020, I shared this presentation (then called ‘sound for transforming space and healing conflict) in COMING DOWN TO EARTH conflict transformation summit.

We are blessed to be beings of sound and vibration. We are not fixed – and neither are our situations.

How we know affects how we be and what we are able to experience – both can be changed instantaneously with the right kind of authentic sounds

It’s easy to get caught up in a sea of words, emotions, and mental explorations (and it can be fun!). However, we also have the gift of being able to shift our personal field of resonance in order to experience something – including ourselves – in a new way.

When we meet issues with certain sounds and sound intentions, the vibration can alter both us as a person, our problem, and/or our situation or perspective. I will share some sounds with your inter-being, meeting your vibrational field in a new way. Let’s see what happens!

I am honored to share some sounds with you and you may even generate some of your own. I look forward to seeing you in the field of sound and vibration for some relaxation, restoration, and re-alignment.

Arts for changing reality in liminal space

On July 3, 2020, I gave this talk in COMING DOWN TO EARTH conflict transformation summit using this slideshow. It was an experiential workshop – we used poetry, spoken word, video, and live music. We spent the time exploring our own relationships to conflict – both personal and global, looking at what new possibilities can emerge in liminal space.

I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to contact me with any questions or interest in booking me for an event, gathering, or conference.

Presentation Session (starts @ 5:07)
