Overtones and Sound Healing with Jill Purce

JillPurceJill Purce is a voice teacher, therapist and developer of Sound Healing and Ancestral Healing movements, a system of using sound, chanting and overtones to effect healing. Jill is the author of The Mystic Spiral: Journey of the Soul and has recorded CDs of her healing chants. Her work has helped people to recover from emotional and physical stresses as well as aiding expectant mothers to have smoother deliveries with less pain.

The Times of London wrote about her work, “I was there. I was producing two notes, the greater and the lesser, the lower and the higher at the same time. I can only compare the exhilaration, and slight shock, with the notion of some experience that I have never had: say, discovering a new limb or sense, finding a bowling green in the bathroom, or being given instant familiarity with a foreign language… it is hard not to feel that you have tapped yourself into an awesome and timeless sense of wellbeing.”

Ms. Purce is based in England, but lectures and conducts sound workshops around the world. She describes her workshops in her own words. “My aim is not modest, I am trying to re-enchant the world, which means to make it magical through chanting. My workshops have this as their aim. I am trying to reintroduce into our daily lives, ways of experiencing the extraordinary power of group chant. My aim is to help people rediscover their own voices as tools for deep meditation and personal transformation.”

Jill Purce is married to the noted British biologist Rupert Sheldrake, and has two sons with him. Her website is www.healingvoice.com

Didgeridoo: The Beautiful Sound of Relaxation and Energy

| by Michele Rosenthal

Michele Rosenthal writes on www.spiritualityhealth.com “A didgeridoo concert reveals the instrument’s powers to reduce stress, blood pressure, and pain and promote an intense feeling of peace and well-being… I’m sitting in yoga position in a darkened room lit mostly by candles surrounding a Buddha altar in the corner. On the mat to my right Julie says, ‘My boyfriend would never attend something like this. He says it’s too woo-woo.’ She sighs and tucks a lock of hair behind her ear. ‘ This’ is the didgeridoo concert we’ve come to experience.”

Alice Herz-Sommer: “Music, Yes Music Saved My Life”

| by www.nickreedent.com

“Alice Herz-Sommer is 106 years old. As well as being the second oldest person living in London, England – she is more significantly the world’s oldest survivor of Hitler’s holocaust…Yet despite all that has befallen her, Alice insists that she has never, ever hated the Nazis, and she never will…she has seen enough in her life to know all too well that hatred eats the soul of the hater, not the hated… Alice survived through music… Still today, she speaks with great pride and passion of playing more than 100 concerts inside the concentration camp and she likens that experience, both for the performers and their imprisoned audience as being close to the divine. Alice is unequivocal in stating that music preserved her sanity and her life — while bringing hope into the lives of countless others. To this day Alice never tires of saying; “Music saved my life and Music saves me still.” “
