Deep Listening©: workshops & seminars
Certified in 2016 as a Deep Listening© Facilitator, and also working as a faculty affiliate at the Lyda Hill Institute for Human Resilience, “Listening Presence” sessions give small groups, or individuals, tools to explore their bodies, the environment and creativity in a playful, safe and private experience.
The “Listening Presence” series are individually tailored sessions that provide a toolset for the participants to carry on (and develop) Deep Listening© practices throughout one’s daily life.
Founded by the composer/performer/electronic musician Pauline Oliveros, her partner Ione (writer, dreamer) and Heloise Gold (dancer, Tai Chi master), the Deep Listening© practice encompasses non-denominational, flexible experiences that promote expanding consciousness through multi-sensorial listening activities that are accessible and attuned for each person and group. Listening involves more than hearing with the ear, it’s an engagement of attention with the whole body, dreams and imagination. Deep Listening is playful and contemplative, enlivening our present moment while asking us to recall or imagine, individually and collectively.
Jane’s “Listening Presence” sessions build upon these practices through her on-going study of the effect of arts practices on well-being and resilience. Jane guides and opens possibility and potential for others through these creative practices. Her study of resilience through the Organic Intelligence© and courses offered at the Lyda Hill Institute for Human Resilience are providing Jane the skillsets to offer “Listening Presence” as a trauma informed facilitator.
“Listening Presence” sessions are offered in-person or remotely (Zoom or equivalent) at institutions, schools, festivals, art galleries, museums, parks, homes and other easy-access locations. For information on these sessions, and how they can work for you, contact Jane at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of the Pauline Oliveros’ 80th birthday celebration Jane was invited to compose a sonic meditation (text scores/prose guidelines). Her scores are archived on the Still Listening Oliveros website here: http://stilllisteningoliveros.com/imaginary-mediations/
For Jane Imaginary Meditations bring us to the source of sound (i.e. our imaginations). They are contemplative scores that guide the listener into their own inner sounds that might promote memory and creative sonic curiosity.
