Learn the ancient art and science of inner transformation through sound and tone.
Tuesdays 9th, 16th, 23rd February, 2nd, 9th March 2021
During this 5 week course Paula Tait will introduce you to the ways in which the world’s wisdom traditions have used sound to deepen consciousness and unite with our true nature.
Come and experience a balance of history, background information and gentle practical exercises. Each week we will explore different sound-based practices, including listening and chanting together, along with a representative musical instrument. No previous experience is necessary.
