SOUND HEALING by TONING – May 17th

SOUND HEALING by TONING

Sunday, May 17 Noon to 4pm

Experience and practice TONING, a gently powerful method of supporting ourselves and others with intuitive sounds.

This four hour workshop is led by Margy Henderson who has, for many years, used sound for healing, end of life comfort, meditation and ritual.

Join this circle of open hearted explorers. Any level of experience is plenty. It’s remarkable how effective TONING is by its Nature. Our willingness to open our mouths and allow sounds to emerge, while keeping our ear to how we feel in our own bodies and generous hearts, is all it takes to co-create a non-performance healing chorus. It’s fun. It is transformative.

Please reply email or call Margy at 707-938-8334

Event location: Margy’s house, 945A West Spain, Sonoma, CA

Hum or sing on the way.

Dress comfortably; bring slippers or warm sox and a journal.

Suggested donation: $30 (please come, donate what you can)

You may want to stay for a bit afterward to socialize with the amazingly wonderful people who have been healing you during the circle. If so, bring a snack.

DIRECTIONS: I am near Hwy 12 on West Spain, opposite the Blue Moon Saloon. Walk through carport at 945 West Spain to white house behind the yellow one.

Tito La Rosa Bio:

Tito La Rosa, a descendent of Quechua Indians of the Peruvian Andes, has for more than a decade, has been recovering and preserving, studying, and intuiting the ancestral music of Peru.

La Rosa was asked by the Peruvian Institute of Culture to play 2,000-year-old instruments at the Museum of the Lord of Sipan to reinvent the sounds these instruments made. In recreating the sounds of this culture that had disappeared into time, La Rosa stated “Time, like death, is a lie.”

Experimenting with the sounds of these 2000-year-old musical instruments, speaking with the archeologists, listening to the sounds of the wind and the murmuring of the birds when flying, La Rosa was deeply moved by this acoustical and magical mochican world, resulting in new “ancient” compositions.

Featured guest artist on New Age superstar Kitaro’s 2001 Grammy-winning CD “Thinking of You,” La Rosa has toured with Kitaro in Japan. Kitaro has said of La Rosa, “His attraction to the Spirit dimension and his love of all things from the natural world allow him to traverse musical landscapes with tranquility and deep passion.” La Rosa has also recorded with Mary Youngblood on his Silver Wave record label (www.SilverWave.com), of which BILLBOARD Magazine says: “La Rosa and Youngblood interweave North and South American winds like smoke..” La Rosa’s 2002 CD, “The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor” was nominated for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music Recording.

Tito is also a Curandero de Sonido, a Shaman of Music. When performing ritual and ceremony for healing, he enters into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates the frequency of an individual and allows for healing and balance to occur.

La Rosa was a main presenter at the International Conference on Traditional Instruments in Contemporary Music, sponsored by the French Government. He also took part in “Heart and Hands: Musical Instrument Makers of America,” a Smithsonian traveling exhibit.

Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of
the beliefs – and becoming who you are.
–Rachel Naomi Remen
Knowing love, I shall allow all things to come and go, to be as supple as the wind and take everything that comes with great courage. My heart is as open as the sky.”

On Sunday afternoon at 4:30 p.m., March 22^nd , Readers’ Books welcomes back San Francisco’s legendary writer and teacher, *Adair Lara*, to discuss her latest book, /Naked, Drunk, and Writing: Writing Essays and Memoirs for Love and for Money./*//*

*/ /*

Lara has shepherded many talented young writers into the publishing world, including Janis Newman, Lolly Winston and Jacqueline Winspear (author of the popular Maisie Dobbs mystery series) among others.

In* */Naked, Drunk, and Writing /she tackles all the problems, anxieties and questions budding writers have pondered from time immemorial. How do I know where to start, and where to end? How do I know when I need more detail and when less? How do I keep writing when I know it’s crap? Why would anybody care about this?

If you are a writer or ever thought about writing, or someone who just enjoys reading an elegant sentence now and then, come join us for a delightful afternoon with one of California’s most insightful, witty and humorous human beings.

Readers’ Books is located at 130 East Napa Street, Sonoma. For more information call 707-939-1779 or email us at info@readersbooks.com .

On Tuesday, March 24^th , Readers’ Books will host an evening with *Raphael Cushnir* to celebrate the publication of his latest book, /The One Thing Holding You Back: Unleashing the Power of Emotional Connection./*//*

*/ /*

Most people have a vision of their lives that they’re not pursuing, or they are only pursuing half-heartedly, or they are pursuing it with all their might and yet still falling short. This vision can be modest or grand. It may involve breaking free of a destructive habit or finding a truly healthy relationship. It might have to do with making a real difference in the world. Whatever the quest, in /The One Thing Holding You Back /Raphael Cushnir, a leading voice in the field of personal and professional development, reveals that whenever people aren’t living their dreams it’s because they are not yet willing or able to feel specific emotions related to those dreams. Once we access and understand these emotions our dreams can and will come true.

Cushnir has shared his unique approach to personal growth and fulfillment with millions of readers of /O/ magazine, /beliefnet/* *and /Spirituality and Health/. He is the author of three previous books, lectures worldwide, and is a faculty member of the Esalen Institute, the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, and the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies. In addition, he coaches individuals and teams at Fortune 100 companies, governmental offices, religious organizations, and leading nonprofits.

Raphael Cushnir’s talk begins at 7:30 p.m. and the public is cordially invited. Readers’ Books is located at 130 East Napa Street, Sonoma. For more information call 707-939-1779 or go to http://www.readersbooks.com.

On Thursday night, March 26^th , at 7:30 p.m., Readers’ Books and the Sonoma Community Center will co-host a special evening to celebrate *Nafisa Haji *and her debut novel, /The Writing on My Forehead/ at Andrews Hall.

Nafisa Haji is an American of Indo-Pakistani descent and she now lives in northern California. Her novel, which has attracted nation-wide attention, concerns the yearnings of a young girl for freedom and meaning of family, tradition, and the ties that bind.

Khaled Hosseini, author of /The Kite Runner/ and /A Thousand Splendid Suns/, has called Haji’s book “lyrical and touching. It is a story of mother and daughters, and a story of a young Muslim woman at the crossroads, shaped by the forces of her past, her religion, her roots, her culture, and her own determined will.”

Join us at the Sonoma Community Center, 276 East Napa Street, in Sonoma, for what will surely be a memorable tour of the foreign and the familiar.

This event is part of the Sonoma Arts + Lectures Series . Andrews Hall is at 276 E. Napa St. Tickets are $15, available at Readers’ Books or The Sonoma Community Center. For more information call 707-939-1779 or email us at info@readersbooks.com.
