Autumnal Tidings

Autumnal Shifts It is suddenly upon us, the days darker, the night deeper, bringing its gifts. The allotment shows end fruits; sunflowers raised high, yellowed marrows, tomatoes loaded on vines. The air feels damp. Red glints on the hawthorn in the shadows. A wanderer tells of a moor valley lit by rowan berries. Afternoon turns twilight, the shift is upon us, the pull is inward, to dreams, renewal. Stargazing later, wrap up warm. The Autumn Shift, Rose Cook News Hello all. I hope this golden time of change finds you well, warm and excited by the coming months, conserving our energy and discovering from within! As we enter into a new season, so does our pace, environment, thoughts, actions and all natural life around us. Autumn is a magical, wild and continually changing time of the year. Keep going outdoors and connecting with nature, whatever the weather! Go seek what fruits mother nature has to offer that will heal the colds & coughs. What spells will you cast, what magic will you weave? Accept goodness and possibility with gratitude for what is freely given. Accept your worth and accept your gifts. Dare to dream your own magic! Sound bath dates are booked in for the rest of 2021 with a very special session in November. Get in touch quick to book your place! Autumn Sound Bath dates: Sunday October 17th 5-6:30pm Sunday November 14th 3-4:30pm : 5-6:30pm (CaCao Ceremony & Drum Journey followed by Sound Bath) Saturday December 18th 5-6:30pm November brings an extra special double wammy of sonic goodness. Before the sound bath I will be running a Shamanic Drum Journeying workshop and Cacao Ceremony with the wonderful sound healer and singer/songwriter Inga Liljestrom. We will be holding a space to enable participants to release all that is outmoded and unneeded in your life, and then bring in a new intention to replace the old way. Cacao is a powerful Plant Medicine that helps release emotional blockages that no longer serve us, find forgiveness in ourselves and others, and shows us the way forward if we are stuck or afraid of making the necessary life changes in order to move on. We will be learning drum rhythms to bring back balance into our lives, invigorating and strengthening connections with ourselves and our community. The rhythms serve to balance the chakra systems, as well as the body, soul and spirit and are easy and fun to play. The second part of the drum session will be journeying, a time to relax to the continuous beat used in Shamanic work, that is said to synchronise the...

Autumn 2021 Sound Bath dates!

So I hadn't planned to be sending this update quite so soon.We expected to be moving to Herefordshire round about now (hence my early farewells in June!) but unfortunately the house we thought was ours didn't work out. Yet another housing blow during what feels like the worst time in history to find a home, fear of homelessness and many confusing upheavals. Although this has been an incredibly unsettling year for us with much uncertainty, insecurity and precariousness, I do believe the universe has a plan for us!This now means we will be in Birmingham for another 6 months...

Blessings & Farewell for a while!

Blessings & Farewells! So June saw my last group sound bath for a while. We are making our departure from the warm arms of Brumtown and venturing forth in to the somewhat unknown! I hope to return to running the monthly Buddhist Centre group sound baths in the Autumn once we are settled in our new home and I will be resuming 1-2-1 sessions from our new home in the Wye Valley. I will keep you all updated with when I'm back in business through my website/Facebook/mailouts/Instagram. I am so unbelievably grateful to all those that have supported me and my sound work over the last 10 years, especially over this last challenging year. The strength, kindness and acceptance I've felt, particularly from my regulars, has truly been a huge assurance and inspiration. Beautiful pre-Summer Solstice vibes at Junes Sound Bath...

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!

Spring has Sprung! Winter is ending, dawn is breaking! Now is the time to begin. Make a start on something, large or small, you don't need to think about it too hard. Just take that first step and don't worry about the next. There will be magic and momentum and the path will become clearer as you step forth. Spring is Natures busiest time. Ever changing, growing, and reproducing. At this time light and dark are in balance. What does balance mean for you? Take some time to celebrate the new life that surrounds you in nature - walk in a park, lay in the grass, hike through a forest, start planting your seeds. As you do so, observe all the new things beginning around you - plants, flowers, insects, birds. Let yourself be energised by the ever-moving wheel of the year, and celebrate the change of seasons. Thank you to all those that attended the last group sound therapy session to celebrate Spring Equinox, Nowruz and welcome in the light! Another lovely session, sewing our intentions and breathing clear. Next 2 sound bath dates: Sunday 11th April Sunday 9th May   I hope the sunlight has brought you all a fresh boost to your spirits and may the coming weeks bring you much positive change. As winter ends and spring begins, there is always, always room for hope. ...

Updates and 2020 Round Up!

As the days become colder we edge slowly closer our longest night. At this point of the year we are given hope with Midwinter Solstice. The shortest day, the longest night, the darkest point of the year. Within this moment of stillness, of time between time, is embedded the promise that the sun will return. This is a time for renewal. Time to dream a new dream. Time to breathe deep and trust as the days begin to lengthen once more. This is a great time to be out in nature, taking time for yourselves to reconnect. Have fun foraging fungus and hedgerow goodness. Rosehips are abundant this time of year and make a delicious syrup bursting with vitamin C to get you through the winter months.   Firstly...

September Greetings

September Greetings Apologies to you all for my radio silence. As things have gone back to some sort of weird 'normal' over the last couple of months, our life has become a busy routine again but unfortunately with a definite lack of sound healing interaction with good people. Time seems to be running at a monumental pace right now and we are already fast approaching Autumn Equinox. I ponder where the Summer went but feel comforted by the chance to be present in another fleeting moment of perfect balance, before we shift once more into a time of greater darkness than light, longer night than day. Harvest begins to slow, fruits ripen and fall, their sweetness exploding while they are plucked and nibbled. This is a lovely time of year of stunning colour changes and a great time to forage. Horse Chestnuts make a great natural hand soap, hawthorn berries a lovely tea to aid circulation and Elderberries are the perfect immune boosting, anti viral tonic. Continue to spend as much time in nature as possible. Take stock of your own personal harvest and consider what lessons have been learned over the last few months and what seeds you will take forth ready to be sewn next year. News I was very much hoping to be able to organise a public group sound bath (in the flesh!) this month, however with the latest news this won't be possible for the foreseeable future. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions as to how we might make this happen please do get in touch! I'm itching to get back to it and am willing and raring to jump hoops, make sounds out of the box and try new ways! 1-2-1 Sound Therapy I am however still running 1-2-1 sessions from my therapy room at home. Please do get in touch if you think you might like to experience a tailor made sound therapy session. I can also accommodate couples / 2 people in my therapy room which makes a great joint sound bath experience and a perfect gift for a loved one! Sessions are £45 for the 1st 1-2-1 session and £40 for any following sessions. A joint 1.5 hrs sound bath for 2 people is £75. Sound Healing Online Workshop I will be running a 2hr online workshop in singing bowl techniques and vocal toning and overtoning. This is a brilliant opportunity for you to learn some essential sound healing techniques that you can...

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...
