We experience that listening, as a common skill, is an ability where everybody and everything tune with each other and open us to embrace the present. The tunes that we are developing and offering are:
1) MEDITATIVE CONCERT: “THE COMMON LANGUAGE OF LOVE”
A travel from Andean Mountains to Africa, from Lakota tribes to south of Spain, from turkish ilahis to farsi poems, from universal peace melodies to heart prayings. The Common Language of Love, what music is, where the soul finds healing. In this travel we perform with guitar, ukelele, clarinet, frame drum, koshi, ocarina and kalimba.
This activity embraces a huge repertory of world sacred songs, connected with the essence of life. We adjust our huge repertory to the specific audience and place, creating always an intimate and fertile space to relax and listen with the chest tympany in a concert format.
2) DANCES OF UNIVERSAL PEACE
The Dances of Universal Peace are a spiritual practice in motion. Drawing on the sacred phrases, scripture, and poetry of the many spiritual traditions of the earth, the Dances blend chant, live music and evocative movement into a living experience of unity, peace and integration. This taste of our true nature – as Universal Peace – opens to the possibility of a deep spiritual revolution within the person.
We offer this activity also as a way of experiencing togetherness, bringing us into a circle where we hold hands, witnessing into each other eyes and breathing towards the unity and comunion of everything existing. It is a tool for communities and people to unfold a closer and more intimate relationship within the inner being and others.
Plants communicate just through feeling. They are purely feeling beings, they do not even know what “thinking” is (except to the extent that they can get a taste of what “thinking” means when they connect with a human). You have to get in touch with your own feelings in the moment in order to communicate with a plant.
Each plant through a mystic channel is connected to the whole forests that grows in and each forest is connected to the whole forest of the Earth. We can imagine them as a net of a spider when the rain drops of the rain stays on the net each drop reflect all other drops that exists on that new, at the same time they have their own space and character. In this space we focus on how to connect to this mystical web by tuning ourselves to the common language that exists between humans and plants.
4) RESTORATIVE SOUND SESSION
Restorative sound sessions with the help of sound, music, silence, meditation & breathing ,invite us to a deep listening.
Deep listening is a skill that needs to be practice, which can help us to consciously rest our body and mind. Also this skill is beneficial to open our perspective and increase our creativity, and fully embracing the present moment.These sessions guide us to find the inner wisdom and bring us a better understanding of our reactions and how we can modify them to positive answers.
5) THE CALL OF THE FLAME
“It is the fire of Love that fell into the reed!” Rumi
The call of the flame is a combination of our services coming together as a 3 days retreat. It is a good opportunity for those who wants to deep into different practices of Sufism from the world.
