The Power of Art and Music - A Sensory Voyage - To Stir Your Soul and Awaken Your Heart

Mary Attwood & Dr Angela Voss
Sunday 23 June
10:00am - 5:00pm

We can be powerfully moved by art and music- they awaken our senses and inspire wonder and awe.

Art and music can have the most profound impact, not only on lowering our stress levels but also on re-engaging us to the sensuous world of nature. It reminds us of what makes our heart sing and aligns us to our life purpose.

In this unique workshop, Mary Attwood and Dr Angela Voss will guide you on a wonder filled, sensory voyage.

Both art and music have been scientifically proven to heal and to open inner and outer eyes and ears, altering perceptions and moving you to states of receptivity, reflection, contemplation, imaginative engagement and meaningful action.

This workshop will include images from the Italian Renaissance and ancient Greece, as well as music from these periods and selected classical music, created precisely for the purpose of turning our soul to awakening.

The art and music of this time literally presents us with an image of the cosmos, in a sensory form.

This day will allow you to:

  • Experience open states of receptivity, slow down the busy thinking mind, to open to the greater mind of the cosmos
  • Rediscover through meditation, memory and imagination, the keys of your soul
  • Practice and cultivate your creative writing ability through image and music

Come and recharge your outer senses, the portals to a deeper knowing which bridge the threshold between the human, material experience and the ethereal.
