2018 has seen the launch of our 'wellness through listening' sessions. Through these sessions we explore listening as a way to find calm and focus, feel present and connected, experience the moment, and gain a deeper understanding of the world through sound.
We live in a beautiful world of sound, and listening should be part of a full and enriching life experience. Yet often the distractions and challenges of the noisy environments we live in mean it can be difficult for us to listen and fully and reap the benefits of using our often forgotten primary sense.
Our sessions vary from short and simple listening-based guided meditations in a room, to sound walks through a city. Our special workshops take a creative approach and use an immersive sound system to hone listening skills by journeying into soundscapes of far-away and tuning into the wonderful sounds of our everyday; exploring the natural world and our urban and social environments, as well as the wonders of musical composition, familiar sounds, strange sounds and the sounds of silence. We explore how listening can be used for our health and wellbeing, as well as for environmental understanding and nature connection.
The approach is a simple, accessible and enjoyable facilitated practice that allows us to take time out to explore, develop our listening skills, and learn practical techniques and approaches we can apply to everyday life.
These sessions are available publicly in the UK, but are also available privately for organisations and groups. Sessions can run from 30 - 90 minutes, and bespoke workshop packages are available depending on your needs.
