SHORT COURSE: The Deeper Magic

SHORT COURSE: The Deeper Magic

A journey in Story, Sound and Symbol with storyteller Ashley Ramsden and reiki gong master Dean Hallett.

There is no deeper magic than sound. We are made of it. It's vibrations underpin every story, every movement, every utterance we make. Dean Hallett has been a healing practitioner for almost 20 years who has developed his own methods of transformational therapy using ReikiGongs and Tarot symbology. Ashley Ramsden has been telling stories for over 30 years and is the founder of the School of Storytelling at Emerson College. Now, for the first time, they combine their experience in a week of the Deeper Magic: an immersion in sound, story and symbology. The gongs will open you, their vibrations realigning you and giving you wings; you will hear stories and create them out of the genius of your imagination and the Tarot will be there too with all the richness of its symbology to inspire and guide us when we need it.

" You are Treasure Island. The most exciting thing you will ever discover is yourself"
