Music and Self-Care Workshop
There is no greater and more living resonator of sound than the human body. Sound has an effect on each atom of the body, for each atom resounds. –Hazrat Inayat Khan
Think about all of the sounds you hear in everyday life. Especially in a big city, we are constantly bombarded with sounds as we go about our day. How is this impacting our relationship to sound and to the music of our bodies as living, breathing resonators of sound? How has social distancing and isolation impacted our daily exposure to sound? In this time of necessary isolation, perhaps we can take the opportunity to embrace some quiet and tune into our bodies as unique chambers of sound and access this resource to help us care for ourselves.
In this workshop, we will briefly discuss:
– sound awareness
– inner listening
– the power of silence
– the human relationship to sound and music
Then, we will experience a way that we can tune into the music/sounds of our bodies.
What participants will need:
-A quiet room. If desired, identify a room where you may be free to move around if you like.
-Ideally, headphones to block out incoming sounds
-Instruments are not required, but if you would like to have the option of playing something, have it readily available and with you
-A journal or notebook and pen
– internet and a computer, tablet, or phone with a camera and microphone so that you can join the virtual meeting online via Google Meets
