dates: Sunday, July 15th 2012
time: 10am – 2pm

Participants will learn how to develop their subtle sense of listening. 
Subtle listening isn't listening attentively to barely audible sounds. 
Subtle Listening is the ability to hear sounds as shapes, contours and 
textures and, via meditation techniques, map them to internal states, 
developing a deeper awareness and sensitivity to the environment.

During the workshop we will practice techniques culled from Jungian 
psychology, Hermetic philosophy, Rhythmanalysis, synesthesia, paradox & 
Buddhist mediation and brain entrainment. Subtle Listening is not just 
another meditation class, the workshop participants will work towards 
creating a sound art piece derived from their experiences in the 
workshop – and there is a possibility of pieces being broadcast on radio.

While the workshop is designed with developing one's auditory sense in 
mind any type of artist can participate. Whether you are a poet, writer, 
photographer, painter, filmmaker, dancer, musician or sound artist your 
work will benefit from a heightened, subtle sense of being connected to 
the world around you.
