Webinar February 2nd 2023 19.30: Therapeutic Harp With Animals - by Vimukti Warr , CTHP Australia
The fundamentals of working with animals is not too dissimilar to working with humans, the intent, compassion, observation and willingness to play what is best for them in that moment is similar. How we go about implementing this varies for whoever we play for. However, there are some quite obvious and some not so obvious differences in our considerations when working with animals.
Join Vimukti as she shares with you her stories and insights from working with animals as an animal lover and therapeutic harpist. Allow the words, pictures and videos to draw you into the stories of working with rescued farmed animals and wildlife. You will be guided through an interactive experience of playing in one of the stories. Please have your harp tuned to play in the key of C.
Working mindfully with animals.

On Saturday, we are blessed to invite Maria Palatine, who is such a creative harpist and great singer, committed to her lofty convictions. She is going to make us explore jazz chords and swing rhythm. These two themes can be approached for their subtle and refined quality, and we can easily integrate them in our approach of improvisation in harp therapy situation.
Jazz chords: a new space opens up.
The rhythm of the swing: a lightness sets in.
On Sunday, Alix Colin, who is dedicated to the Harp therapy field in a more meditative and sensitive approach of music, will bring us to listen more finely to the sound that we produce while playing. We will deepen our touch and our presence, to obtain a more therapeutic effect beyond the music itself.
We will also take time to share our experiences in the field and ask our more personal questions. This meeting will allow us to recharge our batteries, to support each other, to update our skills and to maintain relationships between us.
The course will be in English, but Maria speaks German, and both speak French. So welcome everyone!
