A magical evening of shamanic visioning and sound healing.
Held in the magnificent octagonal Mary Potter Community Centre in Christchurch, with its spacious acoustics.
The didgeridoo forms an important foundation for Sika's music, however he also uses drums, native flutes, voice and a broad selection of historical Maori instruments. Sika plays intuitively in-the-moment, as his beloved collection of natural instruments open him and us to spirit. His deep vocal sounds add to the soundscapes, as do foraged natural objects like leaves, sticks, bones and shells.
Other sources of sound such as water, fire, trees, animals and wind are used with the ultimate intention to build soundscapes that enable us to leave time and enter a trance.
At this potent time, what is your heart's longing? What do you need to call forth? What's coming through you?
Sika will lead a guided visualisation which flows seamlessly into each sound journey.
Every journey is unique and everyone's experience will be different. The primordial sound of the didgeridoo transports some people into ancient landscapes and ancestral stories. Some travel out into the cosmos and see powerful visions. Others experience emotional states or gain practical insights.
Sika creates a safe space to relax deeply and connect with our inner guidance.
There will be two journeys with an interval. Most people choose to lie down.
Sika is a multi-instrumentalist sound artist based in New Zealand. He has been offering Sound Journeys internationally for over 25 years and has the blessing of many Māori, Native American and Aboriginal elders, including the Yuin tribe of South Australia. He's deeply humbled to share their instruments with people around the world.
