WORKSHOP – from 20 July to 23 July 2023 – (English language with simultaneous translation into Italian) – THEORETICAL LESSONS AND PRACTICAL EXERCISES
We will approach SOUND and HEALING from three different angles
GONG: the Gong is the resonance instrument par excellence and is able to touch our whole being and make every cell of our body vibrate. With SHEILA WHITTAKER we will focus on individual treatments and how to approach healing on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. With CHRISTOF BERNHARD we will explore the value of rhythm and musical repetition in the healing process and how this can link gong, voice and melodic sounds together.
VOICE: WOLFANG SAUS will guide us on a journey in search of internal resonances in our body, through overtone singing and free singing. We will try to discover the connection of empathy and voice, and how this connection can have a direct effect on a receiving person.
MELODIC INSTRUMENTS in copper, stone and crystal: JOCHEN FASSBENDER will lead us in the search for resonances and harmonies external to our body. Where does the harmony begin and where does it end? What role does dissonance play in healing? What happens when we repeat melodic sequences and how does rhythm matter in all of this?
The program will also be enriched by MICHELE FOLCO: Tai Chi and Gong, the art of flowing between sound and movement – FABIO BERETTA: new mallets for ever richer sounds.
