An old Zen saying claims that human beings are responsible for 'looking the sky into blueness.' This statement indicates the power of attentiveness. The quality of what lives in our awareness is determined by our state of attention, or mindfulness. Beauty, in this sense, is cultivated not merely consumed.
I believe humans are responsible for 'listening the world into wholeness.' I also believe that exploring and expressing our creativity through interactive soundmaking is an imaginative way to exercise levels of listening.
In short: I have combined my years of musical study, pastoral counseling, and improvisational performance and designed a practice I call 'soundwork as soulwork.'
I offer soundwork sessions in Toronto and travel throughout the world bringing aspects of this discipline to communities, organizations, and teams.
Along with a faculty of colleagues, we offer Soundwork Practitioner Training Intensives on a regular basis. Check out the Toronto SoundSource section.
