Shamanic Sound Journey Workshop, Christchurch
June 13 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm$80 – $100
Reconnect to source.
All day experiential workshop with Sika.
Sika holds a safe space for us to drop into relaxation, to enter a magical world of sound and silence.
A series of healing Sound Journeys throughout the day will invoke a primal memory, a gateway for reconnection to ourselves, to nature and to spirit.
After each Journey there will be silence for us to write or draw, inspired by our individual experiences. Following this, we will share together as a group.
The didgeridoo forms an important foundation for Sika’s music, however he also uses drums, native flutes, voice and a broad selection of both traditional and historical Maori instruments. Sika plays emphatically in-the-moment, as his beloved collection of natural instruments open him and us to spirit. His deep sonorous voice adds to the soundscapes, as do foraged natural objects like leaves, sticks, bones and shells.
Other sources of sound such as water, fire, trees, animals and wind are used with the ultimate intention to build soundscapes that enable us to leave time and enter a trance.
The Sound Journey really is a ‘journey’ – a powerful inner experience. Workshop participants will feel the physical vibration of the didgeridoo as Sika plays moving around the space.
The day will combine:
• Live Sound Journeys
• Time for personal reflection / journaling
• Wisdom teachings
• Sharing together as a group
Some prior experience of meditation is helpful but not necessary. If you feel called to attend it will be a pleasure to welcome you.
Doors open at 10am so we can settle into the space ready for a 10.30am start. We’ll finish at 4.30pm.
Door sales are subject to availability on the day and cost $120 cash. There is a limited capacity.
A limited number of Early Bird tickets will be available. Advance booking is recommended as drop-in availability cannot be guaranteed.
CDs and Downloads will be available on the day.
Beautiful fine art prints of Sika’s paintings will also be on sale.
