Sacred Sound Experiential Workshop with Blooming Alchemy Wednesday

Wednesday, Sept 12, 6:30-8 PM

Join Kim Horstman for an experiential evening of Sound Immersion and Healing. This workshop will introduce you to the art and science of Mantra Yoga and Sound Healing. Learn about the ancient shamanic origins of these practices, and how we can apply them to create a much-needed personalized healing modality in the modern world.

After being introduced to the Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls, Kim will guide you through a 30 minute chakra-clearing Sound Bath Meditation. There will be time afterwards for guests to have hands-on experience with playing the singing bowls if they wish. You can play them in the palm of your hand or have them placed on a certain area of the body...this is usually everyone's favorite part!

These instruments are rare and wonderful to observe up-close. They are made through various processes by combining different types of Quartz, Iron, Platinum, 24K Gold, and Sugilite. You don't have to be a musician, you just have to be curious and willing to learn!

$25, must pre-register.

Yoga & Bjork: Embracing Fearless Self Expression Workshop

Thursday, Oct 18, 6:30-8pm

Join Kim Horstman for this creative sequence to cultivate the bold courage behind true self-expression. As artists, our creativity is powered by our ability to express our true feelings through a limitless variety of mediums. In Yoga, the channel for self-expression is governed by the Throat Chakra. This center is where our thoughts, intuition, emotions, and past experiences converge and become translated into art, speech, song, dance, etc. We will flow through a brilliantly weird and unique sequence of poses to tap into that center of self-expression. Through movement and mindfulness, we will challenge any limiting beliefs that hold us back from truly unlocking our power for artistic expression.

In honor of wholey authentic, fearless expression, we will move through this flow to the unique sounds of Bjork. Her vision for capturing the complex essence of humanity and nature will inspire our movement and our journey to express ourselves with self-love and courage. You will leave this workshop feeling a sense of energetic renewal towards your unique self, your emotions, and your creativity. This workshop is open to beginners, although some prior experience is recommended.

$25, must pre-register.

A Solo Voice

OdeyaNiniPhoto (1).jpg

Featuring Odeya Nini & Archie Carey

Odeya Nini is a Los Angeles based experimental vocalist and contemporary composer. At the locus of her interest is performance practices, textural harmony, gesture, tonal animation, and the illumination of minute sounds, in works spanning chamber music to vocal pieces and collages of musique concrète. Her solo vocal work extends the dimension and expression of the voice and body, creating a sonic and physical panorama of silence to noise and tenderness to grandeur. Odeya has collaborated extensively with dancers, visual artists, filmmakers and theater directors as both a composer and soloist and has worked with and appeared in works by artists and ensembles such as Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Lucy & Jorge Orta, wild Up and The Industry.

1437590721 (1).png

Archie Carey is a bassoonist and composer living in Los Angeles and working in the world. He considers the art of music as a meditative and stimulating creative process whether it’s learning to play a new piece on the bassoon or composing a new piece with pen, paper, stones, sand, field recordings, analog electronics, and wind. Archie has had the opportunity to perform music with various orchestras, and chamber groups from the baroque to experimental new music in venues such as Walt Disney Concert Hall, Carnegie Hall, Zipper Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, and concert halls throughout China.

Archie is a founding member of LA's avant-garde new music ensemble wild Up, and has performed regularly with The Dogstar Orchestra, The Vinny Golia Large Ensemble, the WasteLAnd collective, the New Century Players, and other adventurous music groups in and around Los Angeles. His own compositional work has been shown at REDCAT, The Portland Art Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Hammer Museum, SOMArts, TED,  and many other spaces and places throughout the US, Germany, Vietnam, Israel, Australia and Iceland.
