Sound and Music are two of the most powerful tools for transformation. It is a blessing and a given skill to be able to connect and receive these divine elements. Sound, the basis of Music, is everywhere. It is a quality innate to all existing things and this, alone, seriously suggests how fundamental it is nowadays to realize and understand the healing powers of sound and music.
Recent advances in this area based on studies coming out on a daily basis, have been helping to bring more awareness and trust to these therapies. ‘What’s easily accessible bares suspicion about its benefits.’ - It is a natural human conditioning that sometimes prevents us from experiencing the most amazing things life has to give.
By just using our attention while working with sound and music therapies, we can achieve higher levels of healing and transformation.
Soundscapes are sonic environments that provide a specific musical template that help the enable the listener to connect with the deeper parts of her/himself.
It consists of a composition of sounds with melodic, harmonic and musical nuances, that will create a meditative environment where clarity can come, and peace and presence can happen. The compositions use different sound and music therapy techniques as well as vibrational healing approaches.
In order to let our inner energy flow coherently, our body needs to be in a relaxed and soothed state. It is the foundation for any treatment or therapeutic intervention to be successful. These soundscapes are structured in the same way. They have elements that subtly create conditions for your brain and body to rest. This sound basis provides a platform for other layers of sounds to work in order to address the non-physical aspect by creating emotional archetypes with the use of specific harmonies and melodies. Together with specific frequencies, the whole experience will start to trigger specific aspects of the whole being, be with them, observe them, breath, enjoy!
These sessions consist of musical pieces with around 10 minutes each. Each piece was designed to work certain aspects of ourselves, bringing them to light in order to be addressed.
The listener should be seated in a comfortable position, relaxed and present. The music may trigger some emotions, it is advisable to be aware of the specific emotion and feeling that may arise.
Before playing each piece, an introduction will be given explaining the piece to be played and the aspect to be worked.
Use your Voice
One of the aims of these Soundscapes relates with balancing and stimulating a coherent flow of energy between the energy centers (Chakras) and the Subtle bodies that compose the Aura. The use of the voice strongly enhances the whole experience and the results. It has the power to reverberate the whole body at the frequency pretended for each exercise. When toning, direct the vibrations of your vocal chords to the area of the area you are working on.
JOSE has been involved in music since his first successful punk rock band as a teenager in Sintra which had a strong following for many years and made a number of recordings. He quickly moved into working with the uplifting, feel-good beat of ambient electronic music which he composed and produced as a professional musician for several record labels and performed as an internationally acclaimed musical artist DJ for over a decade.
Performing to a live crowd gave him the knowledge of how music influences emotions, the sense of well being and connection to the whole.
His musical expression is continually evolving as he is continuously looking for new ways of communicating through music to now embrace the deep healing resonance phenomena of medicine songs and the healing frequencies of plant spirit vibrational medicine, especially to the essential oils and the aromatic herbs whose high frequency vibration has a commonality to harmonious musical resonance.
His warm, easy going and caring approach allows people working with him to relax into their own healing through close encounters with teacher plants and allies.
