Sound facilitator Elizabeth and Joseph lead a sensory sound immersion, surrounded by the works of visual artist and poet, Ilyas Kassam.
Join us from 5:30pm for tea and refreshments, 6pm class start.
“Everything is as it is, and the intention is just to become it.” Ilyas Kassam
Ilyas’s work, like sound meditation, explores the formless, inquiring into the infinite and the mystical role of language; asking “Where does a word live before it is spoken?”
Ilyas is known for his large textual paintings on rice paper and canvas that have an explosive yet meditative quality. This was born out of an immersive 5 year period of meditation and self discovery.
This is an opportunity to experience his art from a different perspective. Blending the senses and exploring vibration and visuals will help you to submerge and become the moment, encouraging you to view Ilyas art in a completely different way.
The vibrations from the gong, crystal bowls and other instruments will help you tap into creative and meditative states, detaching from the outside world and floating with the works. Layering sound and art allows each practice to become more potent and richer.
We will breathe with the art, experience silence, let go of attachments and just be. Accessing altered states through sound healing helps you experience yourself in a different way, changing our relationship with ourselves and the world around us.
