An Immersive Sound Experience:
Why do I cry when I hear the first eight minutes of Wagner’s Ring Cycle?
Presented by Sheila Traviss, L.M.F.T.

In this workshop, we will explore the collective, familial, and personal experiences of sound via a soundscape, accompanied by a personal narration of pre-birth, in-utero, lived experience, as well as those imagined to accompany one post-death.

This workshop will include a written active imagination for participants to use for themselves and/or their clients as an aid to accessing embodied memories.
