Big Mouth Society Presents: Sirens, Interrupted
Sunday, March 4th. 2-3:30pm
The Broken Consort will present a mesmerizing program of virtuosic polyphony and improvisation inspired by women innovators over a 800-year period. Music made by disobedient women; by courageous women; by thinkers and doers who dared to act outside the box.
We will start by exploring a group of innovative nuns in 13th c. Iberia, who passed onto us the very first collection of virtuosic vocal music probably performed by and composed by women.
Then, we fast forward to 17th c. Italy, where a collection of skilled women musicians known as the Ladies of Ferrara inspired audience, patrons, and composers alike, and opened up a new line of musical language unlike anything prior.
Lastly, we will feature some of the most interesting creative voices of our time, alongside and echoing the courage and grace of all those who came prior and opened the door.
General admission: $35, Premier seating: $50, Students: $10, Big Mouth members: Always free
Tantra Foundations with Shambhavi Sarasvati
Thursday, March 22 through Sunday, March 25th. 1pm-6pm.
Discover greater freedom, spontaneity, self-understanding and intimacy with life.
Tantra Foundations is a four-day immersion for people who want to establish a daily spiritual practice and learn about the View of the direct realization tradition of Trika Shaivism.
The essence of all direct realization traditions is the understanding that we have an innate capacity to directly discover the nature of Reality using our own minds and senses. Self-realization means coming to more fully embody enlightened essence nature by relaxing the tensions that temporarily obscure our experience of it.
Topics include: daily self-care from the tradition of Ayurveda; classical hatha yoga; mantra chanting; kriya yoga; meditation; managing energy for health and happiness; releasing emotional karmas (Six Realms teaching); and how to work with everyday circumstances and relationships so that they are nourishing and not depleting.
$325 or $220 for low income and returning students.
