I’m initiating a new project in Oakland: “Intuitive Sound Circles.”
Based on my training in sound healing, sacred chant, shamanic journeying, divine vocal lessons from masters in India, and connections with beautiful life force energies, this will be a intimate circle in my sweet cottage in Oakland. I plan to hold it several times a month, depending on my schedule back and forth between Oakland and Mendocino.
This Intuitive Sound Circle will build on what I’ve learned from the delicious circles I’ve been holding up in Mendocino for the last two years called “Joyshops.”
We sink into the energies of the day, of the room, of the people in the circle, of the unseen forces all around and play and connect with them! We explore how the sound lives in our bodies, especially in our arms and hands.
Starting with grounding practices and vocal warm ups, we begin humming, toning, chanting, singing, and sometimes ending with meditation and/or sound baths. I will use sruti box, electric tanboura, Tibetan bowls, drums, rattles and other instruments. Each circle is unique. Expect outcomes including bliss, joy, relaxation, stress-reduction, healing, connection, wonder, and empowerment.
Here are some testimonials: https://iolaj.com/testimonials/
I ask for a love donation of $5-$25 (sliding scale) for each circle. (I’m also open to barter.) I plan to hold the circles approximately twice a month, depending on my ever-shifting travel schedule.
The first two Intuitive Sound Circles will be:
Tuesday May 1, 2018, 7pm-9pm
Tuesday May 8, 2018, 7pm-9pm
Please RSVP if you plan to come, as registration is limited to 10 people each session. (Address will be given when you RSVP)
