Sound Event with Paulien Gort and Matthew James

The Academy of Light was blessed to have another evening of sound healing at Mosman Art Gallery with the earthy-angelic duo of Paulien Gort and Matthew James.
It was a beautiful blend of many instruments, from medicine drum and the didgeridoo (yidaki) to singing bowls, toning sounds and the gong.

All of us gathered in circle for a grounding meditation and commenced the journey lying down head first facing into the centre of the sound circle. I was very soon awash with a deep sense of peace and bliss as we were tuned in with Paulien’s singing. It didn’t take long to soon feel as though I was entering a deep meditative space – so grounded, very much of this world – yet out in the cosmic ethers simultaneously.
My mind switched off and I could feel myself and others journeying into a deep theta brainwave space. In reality it felt like a sense of losing focus on what my mind was busy trying to figure out; “what instrument is this?” … “Wow, that sounded so close, should I open my eyes to see what that was?” and instead just gave over to allow the sound current to do what it so seamlessly does. And so effortlessly weaves together, pieces of ourselves put back together again.

I knew I wasn’t the only person to experience a deep space like this as I could see others move so deliberately and blissfully rolling up their blankets and yoga mats.

Paulien Gort is a professional Sound Healer who offers one-on-one Sound Healing sessions and who offers regular Sacred Toning Sound Baths in North Narrabeen and Sydney area. She also incorporates sound in her Family Constellation workshops.

Matthew James is an Intuitive Sound Healer who collaborates with Meditation and Yoga teachers and Healers using Sound Harmonic Frequencies to communicate a Universal Language of Love.

Step Inside the Life of Fairies

Maggie grew up immersed in fairy lore, amid meadows, woodlands and moors, and people with fairy encounters to tell and, more recently, decided to search for others – everyday Australians – with their own tales of the fairy. She was astonished and humbled by all these individuals from all walks of life shared – personal stories of life-changing moments and profound connections to the earth.
Discover what ancients the world over have always known – that the land holds our story – yours and mine, and when and why this occurs. Learn about the deep wisdom hidden in fairy tales. Explore how and why the fairy kingdom has an ecology all of its own.
Find out about the power of ancient rocks and stones. See how the presence of fairies has helped some deal with otherwise unbearable childhoods, and what subtleties are evident in Nature at dawn and dusk.

Learn how to heal our wounded earth and our own bruised spirits. And, most intriguingly, where ‘fairyland’ is and how it can be accessed.
