Waiting for the silence, wading into presence.

“Who do we become in the silence? Where does silence happen? Who else is ‘in there’?
What is silence to sound… and why does that matter?” (aka Musings of a musician)

 

Sound and Song

These days I recognize it as home, the silence. Does that sound like an unexpected thing to hear from a musician? For many years, singing and songwriting have been my heart-vehicles for facilitating some kind of personal journey into connection and healing.

The Spirit of Sound: Singing, Healing & Community – May 26, 7.30pm. Grace Cathedral, SF.

Coming together ~ a time for renewal and connection. There are many ways to be a peaceful presence on this Earth; a social activist, a personal healer, an environmentalist, an artist… a parent to life. We might be involved in politics, we might write, campaign, converse, communicate. There is something else we can do that heals the inner framework that both influences, and is influenced by, our rich, interactive, world: we can deepen into our consciousness, through shared sound. As a sound healer, I know the value that sharing through sound brings, and I get to witness the unity that develops on all platforms, through the sacred act of singing in communion. This brief, yet valuable, visit into the realms of sound and healing, invites us to experience this together. Come rest in the harmony of community. It is time to gather, it is time to sing. Come join us, in the Spirit of Sound! ADVANCE TIX ON EVENTBRITE

What is a Shruti Box? Where does it come from? How do I play it ?

I use this instrument, the Shruti, frequently when I perform. Watch this video to find out how it sounds, how it’s made and played. This particular model is designed by Stefan Cartwright in UK. Beautifully designed, I highly recommend his work. Here I demonstrate how to use it and what it sounds like to have it accompany you when you sing, heal or perform.

And, the question is why do I play it?… what’s so special about the Shruti that it features in most of my performances? Let’s find out.

Sound Groves – come sing for peace

When we consider the trees as our sacred family, we can talk, listen, feel, touch and sing as one.Welcome – at this time it is important that we can come together to weave our voices in solidarity and powerful love for humanity’s health, for the planet’s health, especially including water and trees right now, and for our shared love. We need to enter peace. And this is something we can only find within ourselves, together.
