Music and sound can have a multifaceted impact on our health and well-being as humans. Every dimension of a person’s being can be affected in some way by music and sound. However, one dimension of being that is roused in a profound way by music and sound is the spiritual. Whether by listening to it or by actively creating it, engaging with music and sound can connect you with experiences of the numinous or transpersonal. Such experiences allow for personal healing, clarity, and developing a greater sense of who you are and where you belong in the world. This experiential workshop invites you to engage with different music and sound-based activities in order to help you rouse, connect with, and express your inner spirit. Activities include guided meditation with music, voicework and singing, and percussion. Give yourself permission to experience your true Self through music.
