Toning Gathering – August 8 – Sonoma

Toning Gathering
August 8 10am to 2pm

It is soon time to meet for collective sound healing! Let’s share voices together. This gathering will focus on harmony, listening, and ease.

Beginning with simple ‘trance posture’ we will explore contemplative vocalizing. There is a Great Song of Creation that vibrates all ‘this’ into being. We can sing back. And sing for each other, as we tone for ourselves.

Easy, no previous skill necessary, just come be with some great people.

If you would like to come, 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 sox and a journal.

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

Everyone is welcome to stay afterward to eat any lunch you bring. That’s when you’ll want to socialize with the amazingly wonderful people who have been healing you during the circle.

DIRECTIONS: Map quest to Hwy 12 and 945 West Spain. I am across from the Blue Moon Saloon. Walk through carport to white house behind the yellow one.

TONING CLASS REMINDER: This Sunday

SOUND HEALING by TONING

Sunday, June 28 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.

All it takes to co-create a non-performance healing chorus is 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.

It’s fun. It’s transformative.

TONING CIRCLE – June 28th in Sonoma

TONING CIRCLE

Personal Sound Healing

Sunday

June 28, Noon to 4 pm

Margy Henderson invites you to participate in a Toning Experience

Toning is an immediate form of self-help. In any moment we have an option for feeling better. Our own voices, released from constiction, vibrate whatever healing tones are intuitively appropriate to ‘re-set’ the system in which we find ourselves.

Consider the posibility that there was an Original Song of Creation. All matter (including us and our circumstances) arose from Sound. “In the beginning was the song”

All original people of the planet remembered their Creation Songs and passed them down for thousands of years. These songs not only described what brought them into being, but included the Geography of the Land. This is how they could travel from the Inka trail to the Valley of the Moon, from Mt Shasta to the Ocean. The map was in the songs.

Our personal geography, a sense of being in place and time, can be guided by listening with an inner ear to the Original Song, which is outside of space and time. Somehow, by listening and singing, we come to understand that we are a system of earth elements, animated by Light, Consciousness, Love, and Order. The ongoing Creation Song has no time and space restrictions. The big bang of original sound is a pulse wave of Now.

The Songs also held the Moral Code. There is a natural rythmn to a balanced life in Common. When we were warming and cooking at the fires, we also used drum and song to teach, celebrate and Vision. The altered states of Consciousness that arise in commonly held song and rythmn are an invitation for Guidance toward the well-being of the whole group.

It is a radical act to gather for common good, and to bring our personal energy into the mix. We each feel all the better in the shared song.

Maybe modern culture has been bent into submission by commercial jingles and by performance anxiety, but there are many who are ready to explore what is our individual responsibility: Presence. One method of engagemant at this level is to use the voice in a surrendered way. Sing sounds that feel like the Truth of you in the moment. These sounds might initially seem rough, or reflect the difficulties of our circumstances. But they tend to resolve into beauty, into resonance, into a strengthening vibration that heals. We really are naturally built for toning as personal healing that draws us back into harmony with wholeness.

Listening to the truth of ourselves leads us to an even deeper truth: We share the Integrity of the whole.

Heard fully only by the original Consciousness, the orchestra of all matter is a glorious thing. And we are each a destination point in the whole cosmology. We each bring our attention to some part of the Whole each time we are Present to our circumstances. (circum…the circle around our stance, where we are now)

Just look around you right now, bring your attention to something that attracts your interst, and engage with it; love something. And be open to It loving you back.

And here is what is so comforting to me: It seems likely that the most respsonse-able I can be is to listen, listen, listen to what is Singing me Alive each Moment. And sing along.

This Toning Class is like warming ourselves around the common cooking fire. And singing ourselves into rememberance of who we really are.

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.”

PERUVIAN SOUND HEALING CEREMONY – 3/24/09

PERUVIAN SOUND HEALING CEREMONY

Tuesday March 24   6:30 to 8:30 pm

Peruvian Whistling Vessels Ceremony with Margy Henderson

Peruvian Whistling Vessels Ceremony with Margy Henderson

Margy Henderson invites you to experience the healing effect of a rare replica set of Peruvian Whistling Vessels. When 8 people blow the Whistles the feeling is balancing, entrancing, and joyous. Find out more about these wonderful healing instruments.  Shamans used ancient whistling vessels in their rituals and sound healing work. They create ‘binearal beats’ which bring about specific, very helpful physiological and spiritual balance.
You are invited to join  in the fun:
8 to 11 people get together. Margy gives a brief introduction and explanation. A relaxed and enjoyable ritual circle is opened. It requires no experience or skill as all the 8 Whistles are blown together.  This stimulates an otherwise unused part of the ear to create healing sounds. Binearal beats balance the left/right hemispheres of the brain, as well as sodium/potassium levels in the body. Trance states, deep relaxation, and insights are often reported.
Ritual sound healing session:
location: 945A West Spain, Sonoma (come through the carport to house in back)
RSVP: email planetsounds@sbcglobal.net or call 707-938-8334
Donation requested: $10 to $20

TONING CIRCLE Jan. 24 SONOMA

Toning Circle

January 24, Saturday Noon to 4 pm

Harmony

Collaboration

Courage

Fun

Love

Toning is a tool to learn

to live in the vibrancy of what is present Now

and to respond authentically.

What the world needs now is love, sweet love.

Consider joining with others

in a safe circle of sound explorers

to practice simple, authentic, intuitive voice.

It is a powerful comfort.

Margy Henderson has been teaching Toning classes in Sonoma for 7 years. These experiences have helped many people to consider their own voices to be effective self-healing.

The class begins with a gentle ritual that draws each participant into a sense of belonging. Vocalizing sacred sounds relaxes the throat and the heart.

Margy will demonstrate intuitive Sound Healing. The circle will find their collective voices, and each participant will have opportunity receive the loving sounds of the group.

SOUND TRANSFORMING CIRCLE, Dec 28th, Sonoma

Well, now, friends.
We are going to have a powerful, laid-away sort of week between holidays and I hope some of you will want to come join the Toning Circle on Sunday. It is an opportunity to use a new voice to express who we are in this new time. I love the relaxed ritual of these classes. I learn so much, while having a experience of compassionate community for the afternoon.

SOUND TRANSFORMING CIRCLE
DECEMBER 28, SUNDAY from 12 Noon to 4 PM

I am excited to see a growing community of people who are experiencing growth by use of Sound. At the end of this month, this year, I invite you to be together in what is our Origin and Opening….self expressed native sound. Toning is easy and powerful.

This month’s format will include use of the most ancient sounds as mantras: the sacred vowels that were the basis of all the original languages. The vibration of these sounds are immediately felt as transformative. They bring great peace because they are the sounds we are made of.

Sound Healing is the gift we give each other by voicing the Truth of us. Our words and tone of voice will be more harmonious after this class. We 1st come to know our deepest Self through shamanic ‘looking’ and then give voice to who we find there. It is easier than you might think. And then the intuitive singing we offer helps each person in the room feel more at home with the absolute greatness which is our original design.

Much love,
Margy
