Singing and Silence – let your soul sing
“For me, every human being bears the visage of God and carries within him or her the power, the love and the knowledge of the Highest. With the help of music – that which I am most familiar with – I hope to inspire others to rediscover this source within them as well as to gradually develop a feeling for their own intuition. Intuitive music, singing and silence are perfectly suited for this.”
This course in open to everybody, not only musicians. To persons who love to (or long to) express themselves through singing and want to explore its effects on the body, mind and inner worlds.
The participants sit or stand in a circle. We sing together, alternating with exercises in silence in between. Sound echoes in the silence. The singing material is not based on traditional songs, rather on vowels and intuitive improvisations. Sometimes we move and dance with the singing. The aim is to raise the energy level of everyone. Sound can do this with us. Harmonious sounds may even heal us.
Instruments can be brought if people know how to play them, and may be used in certain moments, however, it is not a course in instrumental improvisation, rather the exploration of sound through singing – and silence, leading to meditation and inner peace.
Markus Stockhausen says: “People from all races and cultures can join here and experience the unity among themselves in sound. This is the great miracle of sound and music, it can really change the consciousness of people around the world.”
Markus Stockhausen, born in 1957, studied trumpet and piano and is an international trumpet soloist. He has composed for many renowned orchestras. He gives courses on ‘Intuitive Music and More’ as well as his work of the last ten years concentrating on ‘Singing and Silence’.
