USING VOICE for SOUND SUPPORT

Margy Henderson, one of the founding members of Threshold Choir, would like to share her sound skills with those who would care to use their own voices for healing self and others.

 

Toning and intuitive chanting are easily learned. Toning is singing non-worded notes and harmonies. With a loving intention we can be supportive by creating an atmosphere of helpful vibration. Just as lullabies are sung to a small child, we are there to comfort, not to perform.

 

A Toning circle begins with a short ritual to set a sacred space and for participants to open to their own divine impulse and awareness. Some time is then spent softly toning vowels. As the voice (and any judgments) relaxes, Margy will lead us through different uses of toning for meditation and self-healing. We can then begin to sing toward a volunteer in the middle of the circle, offering loving sounds for the relief of pain, grief or anxiety.

 

For Threshold members toning is helpful when we are at the bedsides of those near death, in coma, or very young. Sound Healing is not the fixing or improving of another. It is a form of love being offered to support the friend’s next place of growth, whatever the person is ready for.

 

Toning induces trance in both the singer and the friend. Trance states are naturally experienced often during each day, but the intentional opening to intuitive sound increases the potency of the trance state. It is then that there seems to be more time, looser space, and room for something New to arise.
