WHAT IS DEEP LISTENING?

Deep listening is a meditative exploration of forms
of listening and sounding. The training is designed
to help people gain flexibility in as many forms of
listening as possible through participating in an art
created and taught by Pauline Oliveros.

The training includes attention to breathing, exploration
of unusual acoustic environments and phonomena, just
listening, listening as an ensemble, strategies for
creating and performing pieces, inventing instruments,
using voices and found sounds, keeping a sound journal
as well as group interaction and discoveries. Plus
twice daily movement sessions with Heloise in the
the open air.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Composers, performers, sound artists and anyone who
is interested in expanding and deepening respect and
appreciation of one's own inner music and the
possibilities for expressing it.

Musicians and artists who are interested in expanding
their understanding of sound.

Practitioners of various meditative and healing arts
who are interested in enhansing the depth of their
existing practice through listening and sounding.

Teachers who wish to encourage an appreciation in their
students for listening.

For those interested in a sense of well being, relaxation,
excitement and connection with others and with the
environment.

THE ROSE MOUNTAIN RETREAT CENTER is a special site 8,000
feet up in the pristine Sangre de Christo Mountains of
New Mexico. From the spectacular views from Moon Meadow,
to the whisper of the wind in a grove of aspens, to the
hush of the pine needle floor of the camping site, the
experience of the setting alone is transformative. Far
removed from the sounds of urban life, Rose Mountain
provides a rich silence for deep listening.
