SoundTouch is organising a number of exciting and innovative events throughout 2018, please feel free to join us at any of the following:
13th, 10am-4pm – "Poetry in Resonance", The Sound Lodge, Hexham
Unlock your creative expression with a day combining Writing for Wellbeing with Laura Napran and Sound Healing with Johanna.
Words have a resonance, a sound — whether written on paper, read aloud, or heard in our minds and hearts. We’ll be doing some gentle writing inspired by beautiful poetry. Poetry speaks directly to our emotions, and can help us open up and learn a little more about ourselves. You don’t even have to write poetry — just use your words to explore your own creative awareness. And you never need to read aloud what you’ve written. All writing levels welcome, and no previous writing experience is needed.
You can deepen this creative awareness by experiencing the harmonics and resonance of Gong, Singing Bowls, Monochord and Colour. This is a wonderful way to relax, "unlock" and explore your creativity. Sound Healing helps the body, mind and emotions to come into harmony so that we can open up to a greater freedom of expression of ourselves.
Please bring a packed lunch for yourself. Hot drinks will be provided for lunch and breaks. The workshop will be held in the very special Sound Lodge yurt. Most of us will be sitting on the ample cushions and blankets provided for our comfort, but a few chairs will be available for those who prefer. If you’d like to bring any blankets or cushions of your own, please do. Clipboards will be provided for a writing .
3rd, 2-4pm – "Summers End" Sound Meditation with Colour, Voice and Gongs, The Sound Lodge, Hexham
Marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year, come and explore the power of Colour and Sound together accompanied by Mantras, Gongs and sounds of Nature. Booking required, Cost £15.
