Sounding The Sun

The month of May has brought us yet more colour, sunshine, warmth, and growth. We may not have felt it but we have already evolved and continue to do so through the fear, confusion and fog. As we try to navigate through our new existence, our lives having changed for ever, there are beautiful shoots of green hope bursting up through the cracks of the concrete. Take note of these shoots, open your heart to the kindness of strangers and expand your mind to the incredible possibilities for the future. As we enter into the Gemini phase it rules the brain and nervous system. Take some time to focus on brain heath through learning and creativity as well as physical exercise. Set aside time for meditation and head to nature for absorbing inspiration. Trust your instincts, not the media. Trust your own health and be your own doctor when possible. Trust our Mother Earth and all her abundance to provide, feed and heal. Have faith we WILL get through this, together, with strength, learning, understanding and love. News I hope you are all keeping well, safe and healthy, on all levels of being! Hopefully some of you have managed to enjoy my online sound bath sessions. If you are not on Facebook, all the sound baths are uploaded here to my website so you can still enjoy from the comfort of your own home at any time. As I have stumbled through the world of online streaming, with slips, trips and a thumping heart, I have now bitten the bullet and invested in a posh mic! This will enable me, fingers crossed, to stream with ease, calm and great sound! The next Sound Bath live stream will be from my Edan Sound Facebook page on Friday 22nd May, 8:30-9:30pm. It is best listened to through head/earphones, lying or sitting down in a quiet cosy space. I am offering my online sound bath sessions for FREE. However, being self employed things are precarious especially with all public work cancelled for the foreseeable future. If you would like to make a donation for the session/s I would be eternally grateful. You can do this via paypal: paypal.me/edansound   Zoom Singing Bowl Workshop: I am planning on running a 2hr online singing bowl and voice healing workshop (date tbc). This will be run through Zoom and will include singing bowl techniques, how to use them therapeutically on yourself or others and how we can use our greatest tool, our voice, to...

CHANGE IS UPON US

EMBRACE THE CHANGE In today's world, humanity is facing a critical point. The current conjunction between Saturn and Pluto will effect the rest of our year. At these sort of major astrological moments, there are often very significant events happening in history. When Saturn & Pluto come together, these events are often to do with containment, control and constriction. We are entering a major transition in the history of humankind and our planet. We are just at the beginning of an extraordinary shift from what we knew as our old lives. Things have been incredibly tough for many, with sacrifices made and loved ones lost. This is global. We are in this together. And my deepest heartfelt thoughts go out to those on the front lines and those really suffering. Those without roofs over their heads, without food, without loved ones or without protection. Amongst this heavy fog of isolation, there is also a beautiful blossoming of pockets of community coming together. We are already beginning to live differently, making bread, sewing seeds, walking, riding bikes, perhaps talking to our neighbours for the first time, becoming less reliant on convenience, appreciating what we had and reflecting on what we love, need, want and what we are happy to let go of. And when we finally stop, with nowhere to run to, or activities to continually distract us, we will eventually come to meet ourselves. Our hearts have to open. Can we use this time to deeply connect with ourselves and who we are? In this space, isolation and time, can we learn to love ourselves and connect with the land and ultimately all other beings across the globe? This is a rare opportunity to dig deep. To respond to things, even if they're incredibly difficult, as if we have chosen them. If we can connect with gratitude to all we have in our lives, use our defenses to fight fear rather than using them to fight ourselves and others, perhaps we can reach a place of peace and healing? Adapting will give us the energy to plow forward with positivity in the possibility of new found opportunities, ways of living, ways of connecting with others. We are each being called to do our part and sacrifice or “make sacred” for the good of the whole, as we seed the Aquarian vision for our collective future. We are being called to cultivate our inner gardens, our own inner resources, and our abilities...

Welcome 2020!!!

As we begin a new decade it is time to begin a fresh direction. All too often the vision we have seems unattainable, far from our current reality. It can seem like an enormous task but a small shift in our trajectory can lead to a big difference in destination. This year, 2020=2+0+2+0 vibrates to the energy of the number 4, reminding us to send down our roots and anchor ourselves in our wisdom and in the land. Four is the builder, the organiser, and the law maker, and provides an opportunity for a new year in which we can build new systems for the future. Its time to transform old worn-out systems and situations and create new foundations for the new circumstances in which we find ourselves and from which a new future can unfold. This year learn to live in the right relationship with yourself, each other and the Earth. This will create a solid foundation for whatever happens next.   2019 saw the beginnings of a number of very exciting projects! I had the absolute eye-opening pleasure of working in Bristol Prison at the end of this year. An incredibly humbling day which went so well that I will be returning this month. An absolute honour to be part of my friends essential project; RiseUP   Using my voice more and singing with some utterly beautiful women has given me much healing and strength. Our very ad-hoc, non public and non performing group has ended up making 2 public appearances and 2020 will see us gathering for more vocal therapy to soothe our souls and bond our bones. Deepest thanks to my Singing Sistren.   I'm looking forward to starting my monthly sound bath sessions at Sense Touchbase Pears in Selly Oak this month! This may suit people that live closer to Touchbase than Birmingham Buddhist Centre and if you don't manage to get in quick enough with the Buddhist Centre sessions its a great overflow session! They will be held on a Wednesday evening, 5:30pm-6:30pm.

Remember November

Remember November"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." Chinese Proverb.As we enter the latest Mercury retrograde we delve deeper into our spiraling transformations. This time brings regenerating wisdom, new forms and emerging expressions of our truest self. As we continue to shed our skins there is a richness to be found in the dark soil of our being. Dig in and gain a deeper connection with all of natures beauty.   Big thanks to Sense Touchbase Pears for a lovely 1st sound bath taster! Great space, lovely people and I look forward to it being a regular happening!

Echoes of Equinox

It's been a while since I have written - apologies for the space and quietness! Welcome September! The light is stunning and I can see a definite change in the season. A time of abundance and harvest. Bright berries shine in the hedgerows, crab apples, conkers and hazelnuts start to fall from the trees and apples ripen in the orchards. The reason we have a long school summer holiday was originally to give children time off school to work 6-8 weeks in the fields. September would have seen our ancestors and their children busy working to get in the rest of the harvest, root crops, drying herbs making cider and preserving seeds for next year. This is a great time to take stock in order to prepare for winter and bring your life back into balance. What do you need to do more and what do you need to do less of? I've had a lovely few months dotting about the place giving and receiving good vibrations! Big thanks to Yoga Haven for such a wonderful afternoon. Boy was it hot in there but as soon as the amazing Yin yoga began I managed to get to grips with it heat and truly relax. What an amazing warm up/cool down before the sound bath. Lovely group of people, great space and I look forward to returning!     Up next...
