NEXT SESSION: Saturday March 13th. 6 - 7.30pm GMT
The Deep Listening® practice, as developed by the late composer/activist/artist Pauline Oliveros, is a unique and collaborative way to share a sense of expansion through listening, making sound, moving, and dream sharing.
Meditative listening exercises will deepen your awareness of your environment, inside and out, bringing attention to the sonic tapestries of your individual environments, and centering your listening as a kind of activism, a process of self-discovery and sonic self-care. Through Deep Listening® exercises, bodywork, and ’Sonic Meditations’ - text scores written by Oliveros in 1971 - we will connect, move and sound with our surroundings, expanding our 'sonic awareness', externally and internally, in a collaborative, experimental and playful way, for personal and community growth.
The new moon is a time of planetary alignment, with moon, earth and sun forming a straight line. As we listen to ourselves in relation to this recurring celestial event perhaps we can expand our attention into the spheres and beyond!
This workshop is open to all with no previous experience needed, just a willingness to participate. It is facilitated by Banc Sceol - artists and certified Deep Listening® practitioners Stephen Shiell & Hannah White.
