More about “A Sound Education” Workshop for Teachers

“A Sound Education” works on the premise that the human embodiment is a progressively evolving instrumentation of original Being in momentary Becoming. The core of our existence, experienced in silence, expresses itself through the ‘song of our life’. The mood and melody of this our life’s tune is determined by our inherent disposition and conditionings of our upbringing, environment, motivations and aspirations – and can be positively transformed through becoming aware of its ‘composition’ and consciously re-tuning to the ‘central tone’ of our being.
Using the symbol of the human ‘Instrument’ participants explore in playful and contemplative exercises and reflections the basic elements of its constitution and will learn to listen to and express the uniqueness of their own ‘sound’, will re-cover the gift of their creativity, find a strong and healthy tonus in the physical, and the power of a focused vision.

Even if we are professionally trained and experienced in the work field there is always more to learn, to discover and to integrate. The key to growth lies in the hidden potential inside and can be uncovered and stimulated through creative activities and expression. Knowledge of self brings understanding of others, facilitates pragmatic skills and eases technical and methodological comprehension. The means of creative and musical discovery lie in the voice and its multifarious expression, the body and its versatile movements, the emotions and their diverse palette and the mind and its rich resources.

Through experiential exercises and spontaneous unfolding intuition we explore
– the receptive poise, listening
– concentration, breath and body rhythms
– voice, sounding, toning and chanting
– authentic movement and dance
– playful improvisation
and arrive at
– a deepening of our perceptions of self and the other
– a nourishing and regeneration of our creative potential and
– a fresh outlook and renewed enthusiasm for our private and professional life.

Through heightened self awareness of ones own creative potential challenges in the professional life can be seen as opportunities for progress and to strenghten engagement and comittement on the base of inner balance. The exposure to Sound Play can open new vistas of possible application for personal growth and in the service oriented educational and caregiving field.
