Visiting the Dolmen

16/03/2017
by
olivier

I took a detour from driving back to the ferry to visit this neolithic dolmen.
It's over five thousand years old, at a place called Kerangouez in Brittany, France.
I played a bit of didj while I was in there.
This was originally a Facebook Live video so apologies for the not-so-smooth recording :)

Sonic Tapestries into Winter

Such a lot has been happening for so many of us. So first of all may I invite you to take a beautiful self-loving breath. Hands on your heart with an easy inhale and Ahhh a releasing and softening exhale, and again.
How are you today?

We have just been with some of you at this year's College of Sound Healing Conference in the beautiful power spot that is Great Malvern. A perfect place to explore, experience and share the depths of Healing Sound and Stillness, surrounded by the restoring colours of autumn and life-giving quality of the fresh Spring water.

I was invited on to the Klepet ob Kavi show in Ljubljana, Slovenia to talk about aboriginal culture and sound healing with the didj.
Jasmina, the host, loved the sound of the didj and asked me all kinds of questions about it.
The interview was done in English and then Jasmina translated into Slovene.
Enjoy!

Autumn Equinox - lots of change happening

There was a full moon eclipse on Friday. There's a a lot of new energy coming through from the cosmos, how’s it treating you?
We're seeing so many people having big things to deal with. It seems that as soon as we get used to one big event in our lives another one comes along to shake us up again.

Sound Medicine Triathlon Weekend

olivier

The weekend has come – we’ve been in intense training over the last few weeks across the outback and the wet tropics. We’re returning to Brisbane now to allow all these experiences to take shape through sound and stillness.

Our triathlon this weekend is one you don’t need a bike, wetsuit or running shoes for. Three sound medicine journeys at Urban Hippie and Zen Space. We have room for more people so please share the events with others who may be interested and do come along and be part of one or all of them if you can.

Power vs Force

This book is blowing my mind. David Hawkins created a map of consciousness using kinesiology to calibrate different states such as shame, anger, courage, love and joy. Courage resonates at 200 and its the start of a journey of self determination. Love resonates at 500 and its the key to a high vibration life.

Carnglaze Caverns on Sound Cloud

At Carnglaze this year the first part of the event was held down by the underground pool. 40 of us shared a special time sounding, singing and connecting to each other and the earth through our voices.
Many people spoke of how deeply this affected them. It was a really magical experience.
You can listen to a section of our pool toning and sounding session on Soundcloud.
We hope you enjoy it :)

Land of the Rising Fun - Part 3

02/04/2016
by
olivier

On my weekend I took a train to Kagoshima in the very south of Japan. I wanted to see the volcano there, Sakurajima. A friend had helped me with the booking so I followed the directions I was given, taking first a bullet train, then a local train and then a taxi up winding roads to a small settlement on the banks of a wild river. The small hotel had an onsen downstairs. When I entered there was an eruption of noise from downstairs. Apparently the local football club were holding their Christmas party in the bath house, and having a mighty fine time by the sound of it.

My host family, the Tanaka were hospitality itself. Hiro and Miki with their son Shotaro, then 3 years old. They nearly crashed the car as we drove to their house and I told them I don’t eat cat very often. I had confused ‘neko’ with ‘niku’ the word for meat. After a hearty laugh at my grasping of the language our friendship was set. Over the next 3 weeks I studied at GenkiJACS – Japanese and Cultural School with students from all over the world.

I love Japan. As a teenager I was fascinated by the glimpses of culture that we could get. The story of Monkey and Tripitaka on their quest for enlightenment. The cartoons on BBC TV.
I knew that I wanted to go there and even applied for a scholarship for the JET scheme to teach English in Japan.

Equinox Eclipse - hang on in there!

This Friday we will witness a solar eclipse over the North Atlantic Ocean. It comes at the equinox, when day and night are balanced.
It is a time of great change, many people are experiencing big changes in their lives. Here is a short message about hanging on in there, and trusting that the cycles will pass and life will move into the bright sunshine once more.

Dancing with Seals

24/02/2015
by
olivier

What happens when you sing to seals?
We found out when we went for a walk at Polly Joke just south of Newquay.
It was such an amazing experience to connect to these beautiful creatures through song and dance. When they started following us along the coast we knew this was a really special moment.
We were inspired by the Maori singer Maisey Rika from New Zealand. She sings about Tangaroa, the Maori God of the Sea. When the seals started watching us it was like we were connecting to the ocean itself. A most moving experience.

Alice regularly attends our Sound Bath Healing events and has become a firm friend. In October 2014 she came on our Sound healing retreat in Portugal.
She is a wonderful massage therapist working in Perranporth, Cornwall. Alice's clients have had some amazing benefits since she started using the Sound Bath CD 'In the Heart of the earth' recorded at Carnglaze Caverns. In this video she talks about these amazing results. Thank you Alice for sharing your good news.
