December 9 - 11 Rowe Conference Center
Molly Scott Workshop
Deep Flow: Sounding the Unsayable
Expressing Your Soul-Story through Embodied Voice
Discover how opening the sound-language that lies beneath ordinary speech can transmute old patterns into fresh insight and release.
You are composed of energetic frequencies as subtle as spirit, as dense as bone. The sounds you make, the sounds you are, affect you at every level, from molecular structure to thought, emotion, and your sense of self and soul. You are always tuning yourself as an instrument, consciously or not, through your vocal expression: the sighs of relaxation, the hum that brightens your thinking, your cries of ecstasy or wailing grief that serve to align your inner feeling with the outer world. Molly is a pioneer in the field of sound therapy, created the Deep Story treatment for trauma, and has led sounding circles at sacred sites in many parts of the world. In this powerful weekend, join her to work and play with sound and silence, meditation, movement, writing and spontaneous song. You’ll encounter and express your deeper story, using your voice to enter that luminous realm in which old stories transform and new ones begin. Bring your voice, your open heart, and your willingness to listen in and sound out!
