Sound Lab for LightSong LV2 & LV3 People

Sundays 1-3 pm Pacific

2022 Dates:

August 28th

September 18th

October 16th

November 20th

Sound Lab provides community and educational enrichment to LightSong Course participants. This safe environment allows people to explore, experiment and practice using their voices, working with their drums and rattles, and coming into relationship with all of these precious healing instruments. Healing and learning experiences enrich LightSong’s Level II and III practices and techniques, tailored to the school’s shamanic curriculum. Level 2 topics are always addressed. Ask Lauri for assistance with anything that has arisen in any of your classes.

Sound Lab facilitates deep attunement to spiritual-energetic-vibrational encounters with Spirit. Our seen and unseen, known and unknown, formed, unformed helpers present through audible sound and inspire our own vibration and resonance. Everything we do in Sound Lab promotes and encourages greater perception & awareness of patterns in shamanic energies that are made more tangible, sensed and experienced as streams of sound and song.

Zoom offers you a unique level of privacy to play and make as much sound as you want, in our own sacred spaces–mostly on mute–using the sounds that flow from me (Lauri) and my altar’s spirits and instruments.

 

Prerequisite: LightSong LV2 & beyond.

——————–MORE DETAILS FOR INQUIRING MINDS———————–

We enter our interconnected sacred space, assisted by our electro-magnetic web and its mediating “techno beings”, where sound and intention can bring healing and transformative currents in new amazing ways! Every circle, course or ceremony is a co-creation of manifesting, transforming, expanding…where we simply feel better through engagement in community and the Divine.

Sound is such a powerful medicine required for effective, potent shamanic practice and energy work. Vocally-generated sound can be a super-accurate heart-felt, soul-focused healing force for our selves, others, Earth. All of my work seeks to help people re-discover their voice and reinvigorate modern shamanism with spirit-guided sound.

You can read more about how sound healing training augments our shamanic practice here.

The unique intimacy and privacy offered by the zoom space is particularly potent for assisting shy or resistant folk to expand into their voice and the power of their own spiritual healing capacity.  (Read more about Zoom Sound here)

Together we will learn how to:

– release blockages and access our voices as the creative healing tool that it is;

– expand our ability to listen to spirit and convey sound from the divine realms into ordinary reality;

– bring healing to each other through focused intention, sound, spirit, and love;

– form a support circle through which we can be nourished by receiving and transmitting healing sound;

– bring power and manifestation into our daily lives through sound, spiritual partnerships and intentionality;

 –learn even more ways to use the internet, telepathy, long distance healing techniques for the upliftment and ascension of all.

In a safe, light-hearted hoop, we will all gain insight, knowledge and skill for using the vibrational power of sound:

-For self healing;

-For augmenting other healing modalities (Shamanism, Reiki, Massage, Yoga, Energy Medicine);

-To increase richness and joy in life through personal, everyday rituals;

-For connecting more deeply with the wisdom codes of the divine realms.

We will learn how to be more vibrant channels of sound, bringing the power & wisdom encoded therein, that comes from the spirit realms.

To participate, you must be able to zoom into circle:

with a stable WIFI connection, 

in a quiet space where you will not be disturbed during our sessions together.

Ecotones: A Shamanic Sound Expedition:A Rich Inquiry Into Our Edges and Boundaries

You can cue up the shamanic sound work now here

or Wait until prompted below  & hit the Play button to the left

Broad Purpose & Intention 

This series of shamanic sound experiences is meant to be an expedition into the ecology of the soul.

We engage here in a fruitful spiritual and soulful investigation into the edge or boundary between “this” and “that”--two adjacent or polar states, conditions, ideas or beliefs.

Between them there may be a solid boundary or threshold we flirt with, or a grading from one form into another. Here we look, and listen, and work with an edge or boundary that yearns for resolution or dissolution.

Ecotone: Its’ origin:

The ecological concept of ecotones has been coming in vibrational waves through the senses, during my nature journeys and everyday livingness. 

In ecology, an ecotone is defined as  a transitional area between two adjacent ecological communities (Merrium-Webster).

There exists a unique set of dynamics and characteristics of the species present and facets of the physical environment, as we move from one ecological state to another, through the ecotone, to the other state. In ecological studies of biodiversity in forests, we call these stand conditions. So there is a parallel when we address boundaries or edges in our life between “this” and “that”. 

This concept of inquiry streamed into the forefront as a result of my work my sensing and working with thresholds (A hot topic inBill Plotkin’s  SoulCraft)

Here the term ecotone can be used to denote where to any two adjacent states butt up against each other– in the mind, heart, thoughtscape, belief system, energy field, or any other aspects of our physical & metaphysical lives. 

One of My Personal Ecotones

When I used this first sound journey for myself after it was completed, I found the edge between “safe and not safe”.

As I worked with my spirits from the bird nations, this ecotone feathered into, ascended up to a third way– neutrality–a spiritual practice/mindset/life skill/ soulscape quality is-ness. We have been cultivating, merging with, inviting, whooing neutrality very intently at in LightSong’s Mystery School teachings and learning experiences/ceremonies. So what a beautiful weaving of messages from the Divine to help me with my fears and courageousness.

Birds as Emissaries of the Divine: Singing Hearts on wings

We ask for help from compassionate spirits from the Bird Nations. Birds life our eyes from the heavy Earth to the sky with their glorious choruses, laments, and excitations! Their power of flight assists us to rise, and see our soul’s landscape from their bird’s eye…with eagle vision, a different, higher perspective.

Power and Practice of Part 1 of Ecotones, Edges & Boundaries:

This part 1 of the Shamanic Sound Journey Ceremony initiates us into the power of sound and spirit which we invite to help us discover and transform edges, boundaries, ecotones. 

First, the invitation: The Invocation–Calling in the bird nations. You can include any of your known, vetted compassionate spirits. Rattle, sing, hum, drum, or simply vibrate with intention. INTENTION IS EVERYTHING. As close as you can get toa sense of love of your soul, and connection with your ability to hear your heart yearning...Call forth to the compoassionate universe!

There is an opportunity to make offerings, a simple altar, add to your own. You can pause the audio if so moved to do some listening and finding altar items and offerings.

Then we are propelled on a Sound-empowered Spirit-guided journey. My (Lauri’s) spirits and sounds assist us in this journey, holding the Intention to find an edge or boundary…of spiritual/mental/physical significance. It may be an abrupt line or a gradient/gradation between 2 conditions, this or that. 

The spirits will guide us to see-feel-sense-know more about a particular edge, boundary that you are needing to transform around. Nature spirits–in particular the birds–show us something surprising and important about the landscape of our soul/life and an edge that is revealed. As in forest ecology, the tree spirits may show up and reveal patterns that help us understand and sense our ecotone, as one state (“this”) fades into another state (“that”); graded or abrupt.

We engage compassionate spirits from the Bird Nations to be primary guides on this sound journey. This journey is meant to help provide a birds eye view & experience. The eagle’s view. 

Mato Lauri’s bear drum, and her Abundance (G) crystal bowl, along with lakeside birds Lauri recorded in July 2020 provide sonic drivers, cleansers, fillers, songs, spirits all!

We ask for trust that Lauri’s guiding ones will collaborate with yours in the biggest way, and support you in your own experience.  Journey and use the sounds coming through me (Lauri), my instruments, you, your instruments, our altars, to inspire curiosity!

Ask the spirits that you be surprised!

Mmmm

Begin!

Take a moment to breathe, contemplate...

Be comfortable, and make your space safe to do whatever you are guided to do!

If you are guided to set up a simple altar. and/or gather offerings.

Do not worry if you dont cant wont its all good!!
