HOA is pleased to invite YOU to take part in our very own Handpan Music Circle!
On March 28th & 29th, join HOA co-creator and resident musician Jens Ringefelt in this immersive sonic experience that calls out for those who seek to express their spirit with sound. If you have ever been enchanted by the ethereal tones of the Handpan, or ever wanted to try your hand creating healing music, we invite you to make magic with us at a very special Handpan Music Circle weekend.
The element of sound is connected to the Throat chakra, which governs how you express yourself and communicate with others. This chakra is not only related to the throat as it extends to your shoulders, arms and hands. Similarly communication is more than just speaking as you can express yourself through movement or translate your emotions through music.
The word rhythm in Greek means "to flow". Drumming, when done with intention, can be a path of healing that guides us into experiencing the flow of our mind and emotions. Group drumming brings us an experience where we can be free to connect with ourselves and others, in order to release, restore and heal. It is a universal language where all people can be a part of, free from words and concepts so we can experience life with an open heart. Current research suggests the therapeutic effects of drumming include reducing tension, anxiety and stress, and a release of negative feelings, blockages and emotional trauma. Drumming can also stimulate the production of endorphins and endogenous opiates in the body, which can help elevate our spirits.
In this special 90 minutes interactive session, we will bring these themes together as you will get to join in the creation of sound with each participant having a role to play. You may be asked to play the Handpan, a Singing Bowl, a Drum, a Monochord or Hum a Mantra.
Don't worry if you do not have a musical background as we will curate the experience to be easy and accessible for all participants. The aim is to create something beautiful from the sum of all parts.
Collectively we will break through the hesitation and uncertainty that stops us from expressing ourselves with truth and clarity. Limited spot only!
** Shala closure on March 30th - April 12th for co-creators to welcome their newborn. Sessions will resumed on April 13th. Those holding a valid Six and Twelve pack will get an extension of 14 days on March 30th, end of day.
