Deep Listening is practice that is intended to heighten and expand consciousness of sound in as many dimensions of awareness and attentional dynamics as humanly possible. It includes bodywork, listening meditations, movement and sound-making exercises. It cultivates a full-bodied and heightened awareness of the sonic environment, both external awareness of the sonic environment, both external and internal, and promotes experimentation, improvisation, collaboration and play. Sessions facilitated by the certified Deep Listening Instructor Doug Van Nort.
