All Together Now: What Group Sound-Making Can Teach us about Working Well Together

November 21, 2015, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


In every culture on the planet, people make sound together as a way to work cohesively, affirm connection, build courage, and cultivate joy.  In a dominant culture that over-emphasizes the individual, many of us never experience the power of belonging and sense of flow that comes from joining with others.


Using a series of simple sound experiments, we will:

  • Discover the power of becoming "one voice"

  • Explore the challenges of holding one's own in the midst of chaos

  • Build capacity for deep listening and reflection

  • Experience the tensions that arise from being an individual, a member of a team, and part of a larger whole

  • Understand how sound opens the capacity for collective intelligence

  • Examine the questions of beauty, meaning, gifts, and intention in co-creating work together

If you are leading in times of change, this morning will inspire and uplift you in your work.  If you are living in times of transition and loss, come find solace and healing as you add your voice to the voices around you.
