Enrich your meditative practice through the wonders of sound and contemplative movement. Join us for a day of mindful creativity by finding inner stillness through immersion in movement, silence, the voice and improvised sound.

 

Music and movement go easily hand in hand. Each one independently has great potential to evoke imagery, take us on an internal journey, influence our mood, bring us out of ourselves or indeed bring us into ourselves. Both sound and movement have great potential also to lead us into stillness, and into a sense of harmony and balance. Anna Fiona and Paula have been on a journey to explore just how music and movement collaborate to lead us into stillness, and how they influence and interact with each other.

In this workshop, you will have the chance to explore how improvised movement and music collaborate and how you can enrich your meditative practice through the wonders of sound and contemplative movement. We will explore how to find stillness through immersion in creative movement, silence, the voice and improvised sound. We will work with the voice and some instruments such as singing bowls and the xylophone. We will create movement in response to sound and create sound in response to movement.

Please bring lunch to share.

Paula Higgins is a music therapist who has worked with people in various health and community contexts since 2006 to promote creative expression and self awareness through connection with sound, voice and music. Paula believes that all human beings are innately musical and that music anchors us tightly to the experiences we encounter in being alive. Paula looks forward to creative collaboration with Anna Fiona in offering opportunity to find stillness through sound and movement on Saturday 18th November at The Sanctuary.

Anna Fiona Keogh completed her training as a dance movement psychotherapist in Goldsmiths University of London in 2008. She is also a Laban Guild community dance teacher. She has worked with many organisations, and regularly with The Sanctuary, particularly on their Youth Programmes. She is really interested in how creative and authentic movement can support our healing, integration and wellbeing. She also loves to write and has contributed a chapter called ‘Stillness’ to Sr. Stan’s book Day by Day. She also co-authored a chapter on ‘Cultivating the felt sense of Wellbeing’ for the Oxford Handbook of Dance and Wellbeing. For more information about Anna Fiona, see her website.
