Deep Listening Sound Walk with Tina Pearson.
August 22nd 6pm – 9pm. $20 – $40 sliding scale.
This three hour workshop is for anyone who is interested in deepening their personal relationship with sound, and especially with the relationship between conscious listening and authentic sounding.
Exercises will include play with the breath, subtle movement, sonic meditation, inner listening, sonic mimicry, and sound games. Following a soundwalk on the grounds of Lila, a sounding inside the Yurt will conclude the evening. Deep Listening* tools will also be used.
Everyone is welcome – no musical experience is necessary.
“Tina will take you to the hEARt of sounding.” – Pauline Oliveros
is a philosophy and practice developed by pioneering composer Pauline Oliveros
that cultivates appreciation of sound, silence and “sounding” on a heightened level, expanding the potential for connection and interaction with one’s environment, technology and others in music, related arts, and everyday life. DEEP LISTENING can enhance depth and detail of practice for artists, meditators, teachers, community organizers, ecologists, parents … Deep Listening is for anyone interested in creativity, wellbeing, relaxation, excitement and connection with their immediate environment.
