Sonic Healing: Poems of Loss

Sonic Healing: Poems of Loss

Explore the different facets of mourning, and learn how to harness these experiences to create exciting, healing and sonorous new work.

Migration, break-up, bereavement, redundancy – it has been written that there are over forty life events that can trigger feelings of loss and grief in our lives. In this workshop we will explore the things, places and faces we have lost and how we dealt with this loss and create a space for you to confront losses you are ready to, through the use of sound, verse and melody with hopes of creating new poems that sing.

This course is a half-day workshop running 2pm – 4:30pm on Thursday 25 July and is part of our Summer School. To find out more about the courses in the Summer School, please see here.
