Deep Listening® Workshops & Seminars
Certified in 2016 as a Deep Listening® Facilitator, Jane offers workshops and seminars for people of all ages and interests. These workshops explore contemplative walking and sounding creation in a collaborative, joyous and thoughtful environment. Founded by the composer/performer/electronic musician Pauline Oliveros, her partner Ione (writer, dreamer) and Heloise Gold (dancer, Tai Chi master), Deep Listening is a non-denominational, flexible experience that promotes expanding consciousness through a multi-sensorial listening practice that is available for everyone. Listening involves more than hearing with the ear, it’s an engagement of attention with the whole body. It’s playful and contemplative, enlivening our present moment while asking us to recall or imagine, individually and collectively.
Jane offers in person and telematic (Zoom or equivalent) workshops at institutions, schools, festivals, art galleries, museums among other locations.
As part of the Pauline Oliveros’ 80th birthday celebration Jane was invited to compose a sonic meditation (text scores/prose guidelines). Her scores are archived on the Still Listening Oliveros website here: http://stilllisteningoliveros.com/imaginary-mediations/
For Jane Imaginary Meditations bring us to the source of sound (i.e. our imaginations). They are contemplative scores that guide the listener into their own inner sounds that might promote memory and creative sonic curiosity.
