Song, Sound and Silence working with Death and Dying (exploring the Threshold Choir and other voice modalities)
This one day workshop is completely experiential; no talent required as we believe everyone can create beauty with their voice (regardless of what you were told at school!). Come willing to sing, to make sounds, to explore your inner landscape of sound and silence. We will have an introduction to Threshold Singing (which is three-part harmonies sung as lullabies to the dying). We will also explore lamenting and keening as well as sharing silence and developing or deepening our own relationship both with our voices and with the space between, the silence. This workshop is ideal for anyone who wants to work in communities to raise and share awareness and literacy around positive death; as well as anyone wishing to develop their own voice practice.
Cost of the day is £60 (£40 for Red Tent EOL Students) or £100 for both days if attending Griefwork and Ritual workshop on the 16th March as well. Teas will be provided, please bring something to share for lunch.
