Rose Labyrinth 2138 Cedar St, Berkeley
Inner Landscapes Sound Journey with Laura Inserra and Cornelius Boots
As part of the Rose Labyrinth Series
With decades of practice, in dialogue with rare ancient and modern instruments, and in full resonance with every participant, Laura Inserra and Cornelius Boots will bring the transformative and healing power of sound in a unforgettable evening. They will lead us to an Inner Journey with their rare and ancient sounds and melodies. Laura will create a sound ceremony with a rich palette of global sounds using ancient and modern instruments which she infuses with a unique blend of harmonies and melodic lines on top of intricate rhythmic expressions. Cornelius will add his recent work about new and traditional meditation repertoire on shakuhachi 尺八, the earthy flute of Japanese Zen Buddhism, and Taimu, its baritone brother. The two together are promising a one-of-a-kind evening of beauty, harmony, healing, meditation, joy, wonder, and infinite stupor.
Inner Landscapes Sound Journey is the development of Laura Inserra's work around the transmutational and evolutive power of music which invite and nurture personal transformation, healing, and self-awareness. These 'sound ceremonies' are a musical immersion into enchanted soundscapes and an invitation to listen with your whole body your inner visions, moods, feelings, thoughts, and states. In other words, is an inspiration to relax into your precious 'presence' through a form of sound meditation.
The room will be set up in a way that we can fully and comfortably immerse ourselves into the inner journey or dance the flow of the invisible… There will be available regular chairs, room to lay down in the wood floor, and an assigned area where you can dance the flow of the invisible. You are welcome to bring a mat, an eye mask, pillows, or blankets if you want to lay down and completely surrender to the experience.
