with Silvia Nakkach
In the universe, everything sings: plants, animals, waterfalls, bones, people, the stars, the rain, and many things we don’t see. Even silence makes a sound. From time immemorial, the shaman has heard the hidden music of the universe and sung it back through “medicine melodies,” simple tonal configurations that reflect a sacred unity with nature and have the power to heal body, mind, and spirit. Many people today are visited by such melodies—as if spontaneous transmissions from nature or the spirit world are “singing into” the person rather than the person “singing out.” In the jungle of Peru, healers or shamans use the song called “Icaros”. The melody of “Icaros” is listened by the shaman… through dreams, visions and states of consciousness induced by “plant teachers”. Through the song they sing they invoke the presence of the medicine plant, and obtain the information needed to heal. Singing the Icaros is an act of spontaneous reverence for a subtler dimension of reality, where we obtain spiritual information in a process that Nakkach refers to as musical divination. Through deep listening we are open to receive information from the great cosmic realm, and the spirit world uses our voice as a vehicle to sing through us. We receive and render the Ragas of India through a similar transpersonal connection with the scale of Light. During this musical offering we’ll share the emotional magic of these melodies and other healing vibrational formulas that enhance deep listening and receptivity.
