Music is the Medicine!
Creating Musical Spaces, Song Circles and Sound Journeys with Gong.
Available to run music workshops in community groups, schools, day centres and at events. Every booking is tailored for you and your needs and incorporates health and well-being considerations.
Exploring sound is a particular realm of its own. Using a selection of culturally diverse instruments I aim to provide a comfortable atmosphere for fun and discovery. Focusing on the healing nature of sound and vibration, a number of learning avenues can be covered, including world awareness, historic, natural and cultural . I am at home with young and old and tailor the group work according to your needs. I have years of experience working with people with limited communications and have seen many magical moments of benefit with the medium of music.
My enthusiasm really stems from watching and sharing in the joy of playing, even at the most primitive level. In fact, usually this is the key place of discovery, where ideas are simple and yet they lead to such exquisite moments of unity.
This day is an exploration of a story. Looking at the ancient Inuit tale of the Skeleton woman we discover parts of ourselves, cast out, sunk beneath the waves, caught in the net, sat by the fire, then finally restored to wholeness. We will take a journey into our bodies and beyond, through partnered dance and the use of a blindfold. The day is open to men and women, an opportunity for us to allow the wisdom of the masculine and the feminine to speak through us in a whole new way. Follow the above link for more details.

Entering a deeply relaxing state in a peaceful and intimate space and enabling your self-healing. Here I work with a Gong and other therapeutic instruments as inspired by the moment.
