Sowing Your 2018: an Inner Landscapes Sound Journey

Presented by Samavesha as part of the Rose Labyrinth Series

What do you want to invoke for your 2018? What does your intuition want to reveal to your awareness? What do your spirit guides and guardian angels want to communicate to you? What does mother nature want you to sense? What do you need to let go in order to create more capacity to receive? What is encoded in the memory of your body that can facilitate the path to your New Year?

When we are at the beginning of a solar cycle, it is important to spread out widely our vision and to sense the path that wants to manifest in front of us.

In this first 2018's Inner Landscapes Sound Journey, ceremonial sound healers Laura Inserra, René Jenkins, and Janay Cipriani will create a sound journey with the opportunity for you to envision and sow the seeds of your New Year's pathway. We will journey vision-ally with our inner 'eye', and physic-ally through the vibratory memories in our body. We will create room in our mind for the intelligence of our senses to give us hints and guidance for the year to come.

Inner Landscapes Sound Journey is the development of Laura Inserra's work around the transmutational and evolutive power of music, which invites and nurtures personal transformation, healing, and self-awareness. These 'sound ceremonies' are a musical immersion into enchanted soundscapes and an invitation to listen with your whole body to your inner visions, moods, feelings, thoughts, and states. The sound coming from each instrument resonates differently with each part of your being, opening up, liberating, or transforming stuck energies, emotions, creative thoughts, healing, inner guidance, and so much more. Some of the instruments presented are rooted in ancient schools of wisdom, others are so new you have never heard them before. All of them create an opportunity to journey into your ‘inner landscapes’ with a different perspective, a different mode of being. In other words, Inner Landscapes Sound Journey is an invitation to relax into your precious 'presence' through a form of sound meditation.

The room will be set up in a way that we can fully and comfortably immerse ourselves into the journey. There will be available regular chairs, room to lay down in the wood floor, and an assigned area where you can dance the flow of the invisible. You are welcome to bring a mat, an eye mask, pillows, and blankets if you want to lay down and completely surrender to the experience.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to the concert and will close at 7:30PM sharp. No one is allowed after that to enter the space. Please arrive not later than 15 minutes prior to the concert to allow yourself to land and set up your seat.

She is specialized in the transformative and healing power of sound, resonant frequencies, sympathetic resonance, and binaural beats. Thanks to her musical and spiritual studies with teachers from ancient and modern schools of wisdom, she has developed a unique form of healing practice called 'Harmonizing Therapy'.

She applies this method in one on one sessions, as well as group settings, concerts, workshops, and company retreats. Laura is a classically trained musician with a strong improvisational background. Her music displays a rich palette of global sounds using ancient and modern instruments which she infuses with a unique blend of harmonies and melody lines on top of intricate rhythmic expressions.

She composes soundtracks and sound design for dance, theater, art installations, and movies. Since the age of 21, she has been teaching music to students of all ages and levels.
