Harmonic Voice

These days most people have heard of harmonics or throat singing. You may have heard a performance of the Dalai Lama’s Gyuto monks or perhaps the Mongolian folk-group from Tanu Tuva, Hun Hur Tu, have blasted your senses with their astonishing vocal range.
But what are these harmonics, these overtones that seem to transport both singer and listener into domains far beyond the mundane? Is it just coincidence that these are also the sounds produced by shamans from many different cultures to access altered states of consciousness and to journey to the Spirit World?
Music of the Spheres
Certainly there are techniques that can be learnt, but I feel that to see this form of singing as just another technique robs us of the potential for a great experience of re-connection.
I like to suggest to those who come to me for this course that, aside from opening their mouths, that they also open their ears. For harmonics invite us to embrace an attitude of heightened listening, so that we do not blindly dismiss these sounds that have been described as the Music of the Spheres.

Our listening is often so conditioned, so filled with thoughts and tensions that it is as though we were deaf.” Says David Hykes, one of the great explorers of harmonic sounds over the past forty years. He is referring not to our sense of hearing, but to our consciousness. When we are closed down and adhere to a limited world-view, we have lost the ability to ‘hear’. Then we can only be aware of our own projections.

An Invitation or a Dare?

So I invite you to join us, with open ears and aware of the whisperings of your heart. In these 4 weeks you will experience for yourself the power of Harmonic Voice, the power to transform your inner state, and by a ripple effect, your perception of reality and, perhaps, reality itself.
You will see how easily you too can find the harmonics already present in your own voice and the benefits that will be yours whenever you do so.
The course assumes no previous experience in either harmonics or in singing.
