Resonating with the Divine

September 17, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

One of the highest purposes of Sacred Music is to awaken the Divine presence, or Holy Ghost, within us. This resonance of “God in us” leads to greater concentration, focus and productivity. Discipline and commitment can only take us so far—we need joy  for optimal motivation.

We, as church musicians, offer congregations a sonic portal to their own experience of the Divine. When we deepen our perception of the Divine and infuse it into our music, listeners sense an invitation to relax into their own sacred experience. This is what makes Sacred Music performance truly sacred.

In this workshop we will use sacred music and meditation to:

  • improve the blend, attunement, and inspiration
  • expand awareness for greater vocal blend
  • attune more closely to the inspiration of the composer and director
  • deepen the inner experience of the Holy Ghost
