Beginning Shortly after 7:00 pm We will settle into Silence; which will be shared in a manner loosely modeled on the Quaker tradition in which there is no overarching method or context except to be present, to listen, and to hold a supportive focus which allows those around you to move deeper into their own experience in the moment, and vice versa, Like a circuit being connected in the space we are sharing.
One may feel incubating from this shared space, a message that seems to bubble up as if from nowhere. It may be intended for you alone, or the group; if so, you are welcome to share.
The Silence will be followed by a performance by Jessica Rosen, an interdisciplinary artist from the USA based in Mexico City working with performance and experimental sound. Her research combines meditation and energetic channeling to create immersive sound journeys that facilitate sensorial connections to extra-physical dimensions. She has an MFA from California College of the Arts (2008) and has worked with internationally with institutions such as The National Institute of Fine Arts, LAA (Mexico City), CMMAS (Morelia, MX), Festival de Musica Estranha (Sao Paulo) and The Winnipeg New Music Festival (Canada)
Ideally will be the first in a series of wandering and amorphous convergences exploring Silence, Meditation, Waiting Worship, Noise, Improvisation, Contemplative movement, intuitive ritual, healing, Automatism / held primarily in art spaces and graveyards… If you would like to help plan, dream up, perform within or host something like this in the future please message Jim Strong
