“When you offer your voice at the end of dance, what comes alive for you? Each person’s voice is a unique signature, an element of the Medicine we all carry. By offering our voices into the Dance Medicine circle, we transition the energy of our dances into the energy of sound, gently, playfully bringing us together, calling in the energetic Medicine with each of our voices.
We’ve begun by experimenting with the universal sound of AUM. Tradition has it that this ancient mantra is composed of four elements: the first three are vocal sounds: A, U, and M. Each of these three sounds has a different quality as it vibrates through our being: The sound “A” is the sound of infinite expanding energy in the universe, the energy of unity consciousness and Divine Love; “U” is the sound of that very energy manifesting and materializing in our waking reality; “M” we absorb and integrate that energy into our own being. The fourth sound of AUM is the primal sound within the silence at the end of the sacred syllable. In the silence after the sound we give thanks and allow the process to resonate within us. Sung together, the sacred syllables are an invocation, creating a field that amplifies the Medicine we invoke, share and offer up to the world.”
