Poems for peace 2104 VoSE Festival Timetable
“Peace is the only battle worth waging.”
― Albert Camus

“The World is over-armed and peace is under-funded: Last year, global military spending reportedly exceeded $1.7 trillion – more than $4.6 billion a day, which alone is almost twice the UN's budget for an entire year”
- Secretary-General BAN Ki-moon (www.un.org/disarmament/update/20120830).

Do people know those facts? How many of them? Would they think, act differently if they knew?

This workshop, a part of “Poems4Peace 2014” project, aims to make people stop and think, build community awareness, take action … make their voices count on the journey towards advancing world peace and disarmament. Poetry, throughout history, has always been the voice of conscience, helping build that awareness. “Poems4Peace 2014” is a project advocating: poetry in education and performance, plus community engagement as effective ways to build a culture of peace.

While examining some of the finest poems about peace from different eras, participants are invited to respond in their own voice. Within a most supportive environment, series of simple exercises will provide a platform for participants to unleash their creative potential.
Let one of the best known NZ performance poets take you on this unique poetic journey - an adventure and discovery of verse from all around the world. Be inspired by transformational nature of poetry – reading it, speaking it, writing it. All workshop material provided, participants are invited to bring a couple of their favorite poems, to share.


Let's make poetry a strong link, between awareness and action!

Matri Deep 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableIn this workshop Reinhard will demonstrate the sacred geometry of the cathedral of light by integrating the experience of harmony in sound, colour, shape, dimension and vibration with the human body, mind and life energy….
He will offer skills and tools…. how to apply that knowledge in our work and living space….. how to connect our vision with our reality ….. and our subconscious intuition with our conscious choices …..

This experience can inspire those who are keen to explore the powers of sacred geometry in their life and environment….. it can also assist you in making empowering choices that can get you from where you are to where you want to be.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore how to connect the material world with the vibrational world and how to create a balance in the choices you make in your awareness and consciousness….. every day and every minute…
 
Nicky Hamid 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableThe Natural Way to Human Solutions
Nicky will explore with you the question “What is Really Happening to Me and My World?
There is an unstoppable Wave and knowing that everything is changing and it is occurring through your own perceptions, feelings, thoughts, and actions.
There is a movement within everyone from mental mind to body, emotion to Heart. A change or evolutionary jump that in order to experience ones fullest potential expression and joy, each must make their own connection to The One consciousness and energetic Source, to Earth, and to all their brothers and sisters everywhere.
It is referred to as Unity Consciousness and is experienced in and through High Heart which is now anchored within you and calling you into a more expanded expression of your true bself and the vastness of your Being, your connection to All That Is.

Atarangi and Jenny 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableAtarangi is one of Maoridoms most respected healers. Her work is deep, unique, uplifting, enlivening and rewarding physically and spiritually. She is an example of the ‘living works’ of ancestral teaching. The body work she will be introducing includes:
Mirimiri - which stimulates all parts of the body. This in turn activates the wairua (spiritual) body as well as other bodies
Romirom - which is more agitating. This deep work aligns as well as releases areas of the body that are holding on to various things.

Georgia at Vose 2104 VoSE Festival Timetablewith Georgia Duder-Wood
A dynamic, free-spirited approach to singing under the premise that everybody can sing better when simple vocal and musical techniques are applied and “the need to get it right” is removed. Basic vocal technique is de-mystified into logical steps and communicated simply. Most importantly, the inner storyteller, an innate human gift, is revealed by working in trust and above all, love and when one feels safe to express individual, authentic truth. Participants will discover the joy of communion through the sharing of self through song and how to create true human connection through singing.
 
Peter Forster 255px 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableIntroduction to the joy of Toneing and overtone singing :

During this session Peter introduce you to the simple pleasure of toneing. ie: singing mostly simple vowel sounds and the effect they can have on body and spirit.
He will also guide participants in the first easy steps to learning the ancient and beautiful art of overtone singing (basically singing two notes at once). Peter has a fun and relaxed style that allows people to find new and exciting realms of voice. No previous voice or singing experience required.
 
Mike Odonnell 2 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableMike O’Donnell is a brilliant visionary sculptor/potter of Irish descent. Story-teller, educator, passionate defender of the land, Mike will share his unique blend of Celtic and Maori wisdom.
 
Rashani logo 2104 VoSE Festival Timetable In this communal ritual participants will step aside from their human identity and speak on behalf of another life form. This simple structure for spontaneous expression aims to heighten awareness of our inter-dependence in the living body of Earth, and to strengthen our committment to defend it. The ritual serves to help us acknowledge and give voice to the suffering of our world. It also serves, in equal measure, to help us experience the beauty and power of our interconnectedness with all life.

jamming 2104 VoSE Festival Timetablewith Hans Laven
A good jam can be an inspiring experience, providing
• pleasure
• energy
• confidence
• meaning
• well-being
• sharing
• conscious and subconscious communication
• ‘synchronicity’
• practice
• experimentation
• discovery
• learning from others

How does music make such magic? We can only guess at that, but there are things we can do that will let music become magic. This workshop will explore how any bunch of jammers can better express their creative energy through the power of shared music. We will consider the approach and etiquette that can make a jam work well and even rise to transcendent heights.

Great jamming isn’t about musical ability. Playing or singing skills can help, but can also hinder depending on the attitude.

Great jamming needs the group to agree on ground rules, then one or more people willing to lead a piece or a song in a way that can be followed and supported by others.

Great jamming isn’t about proving ourselves or competing, it’s about the experience and the creation. The ego will get in the way. The skill of jamming (as for most creative performance) is to feel it and let an inner intuitive flow guide the journey. Where and how each individual finds that source will vary but great jamming can really help to develop that elusive skill.

This workshop will involve some teaching, some group process and some great jamming. Participants can expect to gain new insights that will help their future jam sessions, musical activities and performances rise to new heights.

This workshop will be suitable for novices and experts alike, anyone with an acoustic instrument or a voice and willing to try the workshop’s method and principles. Even people who simply want to be present in support and to listen with an encouraging spirit are welcome and can add a great deal to the energy and magic.

 
Vasumi Mayan 600px 2104 VoSE Festival Timetable facilitated by Vasumi
This participatory Sacred Theatre shares the Creation Story as held in the Mayan Calendar. It is based around the 20 archetypes/universal truths of the Mayan Calendar and tells the story of creation as it evolves from one archetype to the next

All attendees will participate in this unfolding drama, representing one of 20 archetypes/universal truths. The story of creation will be related through them and through wonderful costume, along with music relating to the frequencies of each archetype, movement and storytelling. In this way the great wisdom teachings of old will be shared, as they were then, through participatory community theatre. A wonderful format for learning the mayan calendar and personalising it to see if it seems valid or not.
 
Zane Aphrodiasias 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableTribal Fusion Dance Music
The music of Zane Lazos blends various world influences into a wholly new combination of sound aimed at ecstatic dance and deep listening. Having performed in the US, New Zealand, Australia, Europe, and Turkey, Zane seeks to uncover this new (yet ancient) perception of sound globally. By combining the haunting sounds of Turkish bowed tanbur and saz with modern sequencing, live looping, and real time synthesis, a mesmerising tapestry of tribal fusion ambient and dance music is realised that is sure to move audiences and leave a transcendent and indelible effect.
The presenation includes a poetry set with Gus Simonovic.

dancing 2104 VoSE Festival Timetablewith DJ Anirvan
“Rather than give limiting names to the genres, I describe my music as beats, rhythms, textures, and different colours. My philosophy is that the genre distinctions themselves aren’t important, the emotional content of the music is.”

Mike ODonnell sculpture 300px 2104 VoSE Festival Timetablewith Mike O'Donnell
Mike uses water as a metaphor for the life spirit – the water of life. His story starts with the water of his stream, Tarariki, in the Hauraki district close to Paeroa. His pottery workshop stands on the banks of the stream. When the stream and all the surrounding ecology came under threat from gold-mining companies more than a decade ago, O’Donnell reacted on many levels.

His water guardians, water bowls and water carriers became a symbol of a heritage under threat, which touched people of all races who saw them.

Rongoā Māori is a ancient traditional integrated healing system. Matauranga Māori – Māori Wisdom knowledge was passed on by direct transmission orally i.e. chanting, karakia – invocation. There are diverse tribal practices which are specific to the geographical location. i.e. forest, coastal, lakes and mountains. Wairuatanga – Wisdom knowledge is the foundation which encompasses herbal remedies, body therapies and spiritual practices. Native Plant remedies known as Rongoa Rākau provide the herbal pharmacy from which skin aliments, urinary tract, digestive and circulatory remedies are used to assist the holistic healing process.

Grandmothers Healing Haka is based on Tikanga Maori and Yoga of Integral Learning. It includes the elements of Haka, Waiata, physical exercises, lightbody exercises, meditation, songs, rhythm and elements of ritual for your well being.

It connects you to your spiritual roots, to Rangi-Nui and Papatuanuku. It harmonises your male and female energies and creates peace within yourself.

The original Haka named “Grandmothers Healing Haka” was created by Mere Tewake Tana, her grandson Ojasvin Kingi Davis and Whanau in 1998, inspired by the “Earth celebration” in Switzerland, an arts festival of all cultures of the world.

DAring donna children 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableGaia/Papa Tuanuku Our Planet is a Living Organism For Kids/ Children

Hey kids .... yes ... we know that we are surrounded by 'muggles'
especially in the city and urban environment, however when you come here
to be part of the 'Voices of the Sacred Earth' at Kawai Purapura you will
find that there are very few 'muggles' here at all!

Yes, this green and lush portal is very different and is one of the more
unique places in the whole shire of Auckland.

You may not know this but, I was actually born in Matamata, known as
Hobbiton in Middle Earth and as you know the hobbits have many, many
challenges, especially today, as they have become so distracted with daily
activities and diversions that they have forgotten their connection to the
earth and the pulse of the great mother who when she breathes out, we
breathe in and when we breathe out she breathes in.

Also, as we are all participants in the 'Never Ending Story' regrettably
the 'Nothing' is increasingly active on our planet today and we all must
work and play in unison and 'create a better world' and turn the 'nothing'
back to where it does not exist any more in our reality and where beauty,
peace and love can reign again.

Fortunately, we know that Aroha and The Force are available to us all, to
assist us in our journey through and into existence and that at heart we
truly can be the change in the world that we wish to see.

Remember, the Naa'vi who lived on the moon Pandora in the movie 'Avatar'
not only could they tune into the animals, plants and the tree of life,
but also 'floating fairy like creatures' who intuitively were drawn to
those who carried the codes of leadership and compassion and when the
Naa'vi came into alignment with each other, they would exclaim 'I see
you.'

If you are drawn to sharing breath and aspirations towards shaping and
creating our common future, come and let us meet so that we can say to
each other ... 'I see you!'

tamashii drummers 2 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableTamashii Taiko Drummers is a contemporary Japanese taiko drumming troupe based in Auckland, New Zealand. They are best known for their high-energy performances, and for mixing martial arts movements into their performing styles.
Performers Tamashii Taiko Drummers bring a tradition that has been in Japan for thousands of years, starting with its introduction from China and Korea. Early Taiko was a practical tool with many military and regional uses, as a staple for every temple ceremony and local festival, and with each town and village developing their own distinctive beat.

In the 1950s, Daihachi Oguchi, generally regarded as the father of modern Taiko, invented the form as it is seen today. Taking influence from American jazz, he created the first taiko ensemble, making a huge, multi-person version of the standard drum kit. He then took the traditional sounds and infused them with modern beats and rhythms.

Tim Lynch 2 2104 VoSE Festival Timetable**** Earth Consciousness from the Gaia sphere to the Noosphere****
with Tim Lynch

We live on a being who's body we wear?

And we live on a being whose body we eat?

We also share breath together - in reciprocity ...

Yes, the great mother, the sacred feminine, our sustainer, whom the
ancient Greeks called Gaia said 'from her all life issued.'

When we breathe in 'she' breathes out and .... when she breathes in - we
breathe out.

And the magic of it all, is ... that what keeps us alive is invisible. We
can not hear it, smell it, taste it, feel it and even grab it with our
hands ... and it keeps us alive. Two minutes without it and all of us
here would be unconscious on the ground ...

Yes, it's oxygen bestowed on us by the vegetable kingdom in tandem with
ocean going plankton within the magnificent web of life ...

How can something invisible be so powerful and ... how did 'she' do it?

Restoring our relationship and connection with Mother Earth and the
divine feminine is the imperative of the moment and for this whole
century. And, what we have undone we can heal and restore and both create
and evolve a conscious impulse of cooperation, kinship and reconnection.

Come share breath and aspirations ... where we at heart can realise our
potential and
undreamt-of possibilities.

With Tim Lynch in Mobilising Consciousness.

Phillip Cottingham 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableNATURAL HEALTH AS AN ECOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL AGENT FOR SERVING THE PLANET
with Phillip Cottingham
This talk will centre on our obligations as practitioners for serving the world. After a short introduction, participants will be guided into making some observations about how they are currently serving the planet and then some resolutions about where we go to be more effective in being a force for good in the world. This talk is not just for practitioners as we are all natural health proponents in our own way. Phil will share some of his experiences as a naturopath, both in practice in NZ as well as in medical camps in Fiji and an embryonic project to utilise natural health as a social service in South Auckland.
 
Nicky Hamid 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableQuantum Self-Healing Through Activation of Light Codes
Nicky introduces a deceptively simple technique with mandalas for the activation of cellular healing. The method utilises the natural unfolding of the new human blueprint in the morphogenetic field. Through conscious intention the cellular codes become active to generate new cell growth from light patterns which are initiated through conscious visual and active meditative participation.
This workshop presents, the deceptively simple and revolutionary method of self-healing that utilises basic characteristics of the quantum field. The underlying focus will be on our relationship to the microcosm, namely our DNA codes. It posits that the transformation (healing) of the physical, emotional mental and intuitive bodies are intimately connected with the natural activation and movement of Light codes. The activation of these light codes are transforming every human being on this planet and can be accelerated through intention or conscious initiation and surrender (non-directive participation).
Nicky will share some of his own experience with the transformative power of mandalas in his own journey through chronic fatigue, immune shutdown, and cancer. A New Book on this technique will be available at the festival.

Jonathan Evatt 2104 VoSE Festival Timetablewith Jonathan Evatt
We’re in an Age of profound revelation. Surrounded by that which is false, misdirected, and invented by Man for millennia, where do you turn? We face this grand illusion in every moment. Life is calling you to reawaken to That which is real and true; to the very Heart of Life, within you now.
After months of intensive study with Kogi Elders from the Sierra Nevada mountains of Columbia, Jonathan is sharing The Wisdom of the Ages. At the beginning of time humanity received from the Divine Mother what the Kogi refer to as The Original Knowledge—Ancient codes of behavior the Kogi have protected & kept pure to this very day. This timeless wisdom puts all other knowledge, traditions, paths, and spirituality into a freshly profound and meaningful perspective.

Join Helen as she channels the ancient Egyptian Deities bringing through Language of Light ‘Codes of Ancient Egypt’. Feel the sounds of Egypt penetrating deeply into your being as the memories of temple life stir from within facilitating your expansion into the fullest expression of your authentic self as pure consciousness (expressing in human form). The ancients of Egypt understood the power of sound as harmonic codes of creation. These Egyptian Codes of Light (channelled by Helen) include harmonic sequences for renewal, rejuvenation and re-genesis.
Having lived in Egypt, at the Giza Pyramids, for several years Helen has no doubt as to the power of sound in the descent of consciousness into matter. Helen’s sound frequencies are experienced by many as pure vibration that literally cuts through density to reveal truth and expanding consciousness. The harmonic codes of (re)creation assist to re-calibrate molecular structure, crystalline grids and light body circuitry.

antion 2013 vose 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableSacred Voice for a Sacred Earth with Antion Meredith
Your Sacred Voice is the voice of your soul’s purpose. Sacred Voice Chanting is - as in ancient times - a call, a sacred offering, opening portals into dimensions of truth, healing and transformation.

We all had ancestors who were tapped into the primal source of power, the Kundalini Yin feminine nurturing loving nature-based energy of Goddess Mother Earth, which once was predominant on our planet and is now being reinstated. Sacred Voice Chanting of sacred Oli (Hawaiian chant), and mantras and mudras is an advanced spiritual discipline that takes you to ecstatic altered states of coherent consciousness.



 
popping dance 2104 VoSE Festival TimetableIn a small rural village in the U.K the magical Dance style of Popping has been infiltrating the countryside, helping to unite animals, plants and people back into the most divine creation known to man. Now the time has come to take this movement to New Zealand.

Learn and experience the unique Dance Style of Popping with the Brother James and Uncle Philbert from the Animated Countrysiderz! Popping is the dance of 'tensing' your muscles to the beat of the music to create a funky robotic effect. It involves funk, illusion, mime, imagination, creativity, body control and musicality and has inspired stars such as Michael Jackson.
The aim of our workshops is to empower people to be more in the moment where the magic occurs. To help people tap into their potential inside and open up a sacred space in which one feels comfortable to simply be as creative as they choose to be though the basic fun Popping dance styles we will teach you in the workshop.

To master the art of Popping you must master this way of being:
"Here is natural instinct and here is control. You are to combine the two in harmony, now if you have one to the extreme, you will be very unscientific. If you have another to the extreme, you will all of a sudden be a mechanical man, no longer a human being. It is a successful combination of both. Therefore, it is not naturalness or unnaturalness. The ideal is unnatural, naturalness or natural, unnaturalness." Bruce Lee

In this action lies our freedom from the ego ; as you allow your sound its true freedom your spirit can soar. Come and engage with Four Elements Voice and energise your whole being.
 
Brandon Strickland  2104 VoSE Festival Timetablewith Brandon Strickland
An objective and passionate analysis of the contrast between the current status-quo, practised by conventional first-world culture, and some of the concepts, tools and methods required for humanity to transition towards a greater environmental and social equilibrium.

As many minds have pointed out, from Buckminster Fuller to Terence McKenna, we have the technology, resources and know-how to end poverty, war, and all other forms of discordant & destructive behaviour currently accepted as 'normal' while also enhancing the quality of life for everyone on the planet.

The question then begs to be asked,, why aren't we – as a collective
expression of human potential – practising this enlightenment now? The
answers, I believe, lay within our own consciousness. In other words; our beliefs, worldviews, and the degree to which we are willing to learn, let-go, and grow into newer and higher levels of cooperation.

Seeing this potential, first in the minds eye, may then lead to successional manifestations being realized into form.

"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary. War is obsolete. It is a matter of converting the high technology from weaponry to livingry."
- R. Buckminster Fuller
