Sound Sense and Awareness

Sound Attunement Days with Janine Greaves, Heather Cowen and Gabriella

A conversation between us, our bodies, the sounds, the instruments and space

In response to the many questions that arise following on from the making of a bowl or bowls, we are inspired to open up a series of one day workshops in which we will explore some of the many levels and possibilities of how you can work with the bowls you have made and others that you may live with – recognizing these instruments as conscious beings embodying vast vibrational realities.
Some of the areas we may explore will be 

  • The Ancient Bowls. Who are they?, where do they come from? How do we work with them?
  • Learning to read the energy of bowls – ancient and new – gaining a clearer sense of how they each can work and create with you in different ways….
  • The new Bowls – a new wave of conscious beings that call in a new vibrational reality
  • Develop an energetic communication with your own bowl and begin to tune in and translate the language of sound, giving you greater access to sensing the resonance of other instruments and energies that could include your own body, physical spaces and the wider realms of nature.
  • Is it possible for a sound instrument to lose its voice?
  • Is my bowl a healing tool?
  • My bowl seems to have changed? What’s happened?
  • How does my bowl impact the world around me?

This day opens the door to the possibilities that we are each able to become more vibrational in our sensing, our being and our bodies.
If you would like to deepen and expand your sound senses and awareness then come along.

Cost for the day £75

Arrive at 9.45am for a 10am start. Day comes to close at 5pm
Bring your own lunch.

Sound – workshops: Experience Sound as a Healer and Facilitator of Transformation

Learn about tuning ourselves to become the instruments of healing sound and vibration, practicing our attunement and sensitivity
Explore our main instrument – the voice – for alignment and healing along with other sound instruments
Learn about different ways of healing through sound and vibration and practice the application

We learn to connect with our body intelligence and tune ourselves to our own true frequency in alignment with the Whole, a much needed tool for calibration throughout the many changes at this time.

We will also work with some principles of sound-healing, exploring ourselves as instruments of healing, transformation and creation. We work with our voices to explore our own inner space and the expression of inner truth through sound. Incredible insights can emerge as we allow ourselves to be sung and become the instrument. Many find unexpected openings. We can experience the alchemy of sound, healing with sound in co-creation with Nature, connecting more deeply with our nature and the Earth through the portal of sound and working with intention and the willingness to allow ourselves to becoming an instrument of life.

 Sound Weaving Workshop

Weaving consciousness through Sound .
In this workshop we are invited to use our awareness to weave strands of consciousness through the vibrational medium of sound. As we do we can experience ourselves as the instruments through which consciousness creates reality. When we engage with the sounds we experience a circle of attunment which allows us to come into resonance with ourselves with time, space and nature. In this state of resonance we are co-creators of the future world
We can tune ourselves through the voice and sound in recognition that we ourselves are the instruments through which consiousness creates. The more we are in resonance with ourselves, the clearer our creations can be.We also have the opportunity to discover parts of ourselves that are ‘out of tune’ and allow them to re-tune.

We will work with our voices and with as well as learn to work with the handmade singing-bowls and bells.

Want to host a workshop / talk  / experience?

 we can offer ‘mini workshops’ or talks: length: 2h to half day 

1) What is sound weaving?
How can we use our awareness to weave strands of consciousness through the vibrational medium of sound to co-create with Nature , the Earth, spirit of time and place?

2) Experience a Circle of attunement through sound.
drop into a heart space, allowing the sound to assist us to come into resonance with time , place, nature….. -co-creating as we become the instruments.

3) Tuning ourselves through sound:
We can tune ourselves through the voice and sound in recognition that we ourselves are the instruments through which consiousness creates. The more we are in resonance with ourselves, the clearer our creations can be.We also have the opportunity to discover parts of ourselves that are ‘out of tune’ and allow them to re-tune.
4):Sharing of the stories of our songlines journey through Brazil, South Africa and Australia. Tales of meeting the Dragons of Brazil, White Lions of Timbavati and the Dreamtime of Australia – Spirit of the Land in each continent… a journey that was crafted by following invitations and opening to both receive and attune with the frequency of Gold Consciousness. Some have described these sharings as being washed in the frequency of each place.

5) Abundance ritual :  a ceremony of manifestation and Actualization co-creating with the elementals of fire , water, earth and air with sound and frequency.
