And now for something completely different

My good friend and fellow EFTer Liz Kirsopp sent me the following email about an event she is running in Hexham. It has nothing to directly to do with NLP or EFT but I think it might be fun.

Hi Everyone,

I would love it if you could come to this event that I am leading or please feel free to forward this email to anyone you know who might be interested.

In association with Queens Hall Community Arts I am leading a workshop of Overtoning at the Moot Hall in Hexham Market Place on Sunday 26th April at 5pm to 7 pm. Ring box office on 01434 652477 to book.

Overtoning is a kind of singing or chanting that is practised in Tibet, Mongolia, Siberia and amongst native peoples in other parts of the world. There are very different ways of doing it but the basic technique is one of producing two notes or sounds at the same time with one voice.

I am not an authority on overtoning but am a competent practitioner of the basic overtone effects and I love to do it in a group! So I am not taking any payment for this but there is a charge of £6 each to cover the rent etc

I will provide basic tuition and the aim of the group is to be experiential and experimental.

Things I love about overtoning  –

– that we can create amazing harmonies very quickly with a minimum of practice,

– that we can vibrate that harmony together in a rare energy that has nothing to do with words

and that it does not matter if you are tone deaf or have a voice like a horse.

There are several youtube clips that demonstrate overtoning – the Siberian kind is called Khoomei or Tuvan singing , but don’t worry we won’t be doing that style! It is very deep and abrasive and has to be developed from childhood. Here are some links – sorry I cannot find any good examples of women doing it but we can do it just fine, I promise you! :

Please do contact me if you have any questions or if you are interested to try overtoning but cannot make this date.

Thanks

Liz
