 Sound Attunement  

(for individuals or groups of 5-8 participants.)

Deepen the relaxation response with Native Flute and Quartz Singing Bowl Sound Attunements 

Flute music and quartz singing bowl resonances creates a stimulating binaural relationship. Calming and deepening the breaths inhale/exhale exchange while listening to the melodic framework of a variety of pentatonic note sequences of the flute in combination with the resonant consonant and dissonant frequency flow of the crystal quartz singing bowls. 

Laurie Lynn Clark plays with the intention of deepening one's relaxation response so to stimulate the opening of the body's vital energy centres while breath exercises brings oxygen to the spinal plexuses (Medullary/ cervical/dorsal/lumbar/ sacral/ coccygeal plexuses).

As a musician, Laurie also offers sound bathing experiences for grief ceremonies for death doula certification courses. Laurie invites the opportunity to host bereavement circle groups out on the land around the council fire in the Lanark Highlands.

A poem written by Wendell Berry

that hit home for me...

 

 

Given


i. Make a place to sit down.
Sit down. Be quiet.
You must depend upon
affection, reading, knowledge,
skill—more of each
than you have—inspiration
work, growing older, patience,
for patience joins time
to eternity…

ii. Breathe with unconditional breath
the unconditioned air.
Shun electric wire.
Communicate slowly. Live
a three-dimensional life;
stay away from screens.
Stay away from anything
that obscures the place it is in.
There are no unsacred places;
there are only sacred places
and desecrated places.

iii. Accept what comes from silence.
Make the best you can of it.
Of the little words that come
out of the silence, like prayers
prayed back to the one who prays,
make a poem that does not disturb
the silence from which it came.”

- Wendell Berry
