Healing Voice Week Intensives

A Life Changing Week of Chant and Healing

Each week intensive has a different theme: one is held over the festival of Beltane (May Day) and the other over Samhain (Halloween /All Saints / All Souls). They start with an uplifting exploration of transformative breathing, chanting, mantra and sonic meditations, sacred chants, healing, shamanic ceremony and sonorous dream work. We learn and practice Mongolian overtone chanting, an ethereal and powerfully meditative vocal yoga which transforms our voices into rainbows of sound and light. We experience vocal purifications and ways to set parts of the body into resonance, cleanse and tune the chakras, and learn sonorous massage.

A major part of these weeks is a living mandala ceremony. As the weeks are timed to coincide with the ancient celtic fire festivals of Beltane and Samhain, when the veils between the worlds are more permeable, we do a powerful ceremony to honour the ancestors and heal the ancestral lines, transforming family curses into their corresponding blessings. Working with the voice in this way empowers our lives, balances our mind and body and frees our voice, bringing physical health, emotional joy and spiritual ecstasy.

Jill only does two of these Healing Voice weeklong retreats a year, and with limited places, they are in demand from people all over the world. Book early to secure your place!

This Spring we will be journeying through the Mandala of Green Tara, experiencing the union of the sacred masculine and feminine, bliss and emptiness. These mandala ceremonies developed by Jill, also have unique and profound psychological healing processes embedded in deep spiritual practice. In this one, Green Tara's gifts include enlightened achievement, karma-free, appropriate and fearless action; happiness and fulfilment; the immediate granting of wishes; luminous wisdom and enlightenment. This extraordinarily powerful week enables us to become effective in relation to who we are, our abundance, our relationships and how we realise our passion in the world. The practice enables us to overcome obstructions to these aspirations and heal ourselves.

The psychological theme of this week is harnessing fearless action in new beginnings in the four directional aspects of the mandala
1) who we are as enlightened human beings
2) what we want to have and how we want to flourish, prosper and establish happiness, flow and eloquence in our lives
3) how we want to regenerate and harmonise present, or invoke new, exciting and harmonious relationships
4) discovering and articulating our role and our benign and effective activity in the world.

We will do this work ceremonially, aligning ourselves with one of the most powerful of all deities, the Great Goddess Tara, the quick acting Mother of the Buddhas, who is able to bring enlightenment in this lifetime. Traditionally, equally loved and revered by men and women, many, including almost all Tibetan Buddhists, from the most sophisticated to the simplest, including the Dalai Lama, maintain their deep connection with this feminine manifestation of the divine. She acts swiftly and confers compassion, enlightened action, liberation, emotional and physical healing, and long life. Through working with the extraordinary energies of Tara we are able to ease the blockages to achievements in life, in work, in relationships, in emotional and physical health, to bring about order and flow in our lives, to liberate us from afflictive emotions, leading us to ecstasy, joy and freedom. We work towards achieving the essential state of reality of naked awareness and luminous being.

The April-May 2015 retreat is held over the festival of Beltane or May Day, a festival of fecundity when the male forces of heaven penetrate the feminine richness of the earth (represented in traditional England by the Maypole). We will celebrate May Day and harness these joyful forces using sound as the bridge between the worlds to connect to the source of power through the instrument of our own voice and purify the body, the elements and past karma. In Tibetan Buddhism, the ultimate liberation is to transform the elements of the body into the essence of their substance - the rainbow colours and ultimately achieve the rainbow body.



Healing Voice Samhain Week Intensive

Oct 31st - Nov 6th, 2015 Add to Calendar 10-31-2015 9:30 11-06-2015 19:00 Europe/London Healing Voice Samhain Week Intensive The aim of the October mandala ceremony, held as part of the week intensive over the festival of All Souls is to understand and learn the practice of conscious dying, so we know how to become enlightened at the moment of transition.

The Samhain (Halloween / All Saints / All Souls) week takes place in London, in Belsize Park, in a beautiful garden setting close to the 1000 acres of Hampstead Heath.

The aim of the October mandala ceremony, held as part of the week intensive over the festival of All Souls is to understand and learn the practice of conscious dying, so we know how to become enlightened at the moment of transition. This part of the magical week involves continuous and diverse chant and practice, which Jill has activated at the heart of the mandala, described as the journey through the afterlife in Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. This essential housework for mortals is a sophisticated practice at the core of the ancient Tibetan understanding of the mind.

There are three parts to this October's Mandala ceremony.

Firstly, the phowa, the practice of the transfer. We learn how to gather consciousness into the central channel and then direct our own, or others' consciousness directly towards enlightenment, rather than wind through endless cycles of rebirth in the lower realms. This is not only an essential map for the dying process, whenever and to whomever it may come, but practice for enlightenment in itself.

The second part, is the psychological practice of understanding and identifying the multiple personas we present to the world, and seeing how they are merely the manifestations of confused states of mind. We will encounter and articulate these diverse aspects of ourselves, realising they are all equally illusory and temporary - the result of expedient and often inappropriate emotional reactions to life's circumstances, but ultimately the shimmering mirages and complex faceted manifestations of emptiness. We understand how they provide us with the very tools for their own transformation into their purified forms as enlightened wisdoms. The principle wisdoms they aspire to and become are, in the Tibetan understanding, presented to us in the first five days of the Bardo, the immediate aftermath of death, and give us successive opportunities for enlightenment.

The third aspect of this mandala process is the practice of the teaching of the Bardo, which is the encounter with these enlightened transformations of our unconscious delusions of mind. We learn how to recognise these luminous states and to distinguish them from the comforting phantasms which lure us back into realms of illusion, and finally recognise our projections and dissolve the sense of self into the light of reality.

At this period of All Souls, and offered as an optional part of this retreat on one of the evenings, is a requiem mass held especially for us and for our ancestors at Jill's local church. During this service we will be able to sing and light candles for, and chant the names of our ancestors. In this way we bring together diverse and powerful ways of understanding and actively participating in this liminal moment in the year.

As each of the themes of Jill's weeks are different - it may be some years before she does these two again - so if this work is important to you, try to make one or both of them. People come from all over the world to these retreats, and as places are limited they fill up fast.
