Music as Meditation
The concept of "Music as Meditation" is based on the idea of creating a safe space, which supports the meditative aspects of music and pure sound. Meditation and healing are interrelated. Through deep relaxation, we gain access to our subconscious. Old memories may surface and pass, blockages may be released. As we perceive the music in a dreamlike state, we travel through soundscapes and inner landscapes that connect us to our centre. Different kinds of vibration affect different parts in us. As everything is vibration, it helps us to reconnect with ourselves and the nature around us.
Our music is a blend of eastern sounds, rooted in sacred Greek, Turkish sufi and Indian traditional music, of mostly improvisational character. Our instruments consist of string instruments as the Turkish saz, the Greek lafta, lyra and tambouras as well as wind instruments as the Indian bansuri and the Turkish ney. One part is of a more percussive nature, introducing the shamanic element with frame drums and various small percussion instruments. Voice and mantras, singing bowls and bells are interwoven throughout the musical journey.

Opening up for the heart
Yoga is a heartfelt practice and based on feeling rather than on reason, in this workshop for the heart we will explore in depth the meaning behind that.
The heart is associated with the hands, we undertake action and achieve things in life from our heart if this is not in balance we face difficulties. Coming back to that source again and again is an action of love, living our true lives in resonation with why we are here. In anahata (heart chakra) one makes decisions "follows ones heart".
In this workshop we dive into the mystery which is our ever- changing natural state. We allow ourselves to be, take time and open up to what arises. Through several breathing techniques we find a more calm and focused mind. With movements of the spine we release the energy and from there bring the focus of that energy into the hands, here we breathe together with a subtle movement that takes place from the inside out and start moving the energy around.
Abundance is feeling alive, feeling ones body, breathe and heart. By moving freely around, starting slowly and getting more connected with oneself we start to experience this more and more. From here we start exploring the yoga asanas and their connection with the heart.
In the end there will be a meditation on the integration of the workshop. Then I will close the class with a savasana where we let go and trust in our journey.
