$80 per person (includes Slovenian Supper) – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available

Slovenian Storytelling Night

Here is an irresistible invitation to you from international storyteller, soundscape artist and singer, Ljoba Jence. This is an incredible never-to-be repeated opportunity to explore the magic and wonder of Slovenian story and sound from the exquisite collection accumulated over three decades by Ljoba …

“Come and sit by my fire and listen to the well of Slovenian stories and songs.
Listen to the sound of singing stones from the most beautiful turquoise Soča river and the message of Goldhorn’s treasures from Triglav mountain!
Or maybe you would rather hear Slovenian version of Eros and Psyche…or…a myth how God one day went to swim in the sea as the day was so hot that he could not stand the heat anymore”

Slovenia lies on the sunny side of the Alps and is becoming the No. 1 tourist destination in Europe renowned for its diversity in nature and quiet, peaceful culture and healthy environment. A country of two million people who speak Slovenian it still has in its cultural heritage about 50 dialects.

Such a small community has a rich national archive of oral tradition which Ljoba Jenče explores, collects on her own and has safeguared for more than thirty years.

In 1993 she attended the International Storytelling Symposium at Emerson College in England with Ashley Ramsden as a leader and others and from then on she has run her Institute for Sustainable Living PAJN with Storytelling Symposias, such as the one on Parzival in 2013.

Ljoba is deeply connected with the process of transmitting intangible cultural heritage to the younger generation and has been awarded a medal by the President of Slovenia in 2015 and with special mention of the jury of Europa Nostra Awards in 2017.

We will celebrate this amazing Slovenian storytelling night with a delicious Slovenian Supper.

We welcome Ljoba Jenče to Perth Hills as part of the visit to WA by a number of amazing Slovenian performers. During their time in Perth, they will be performing an Australian/Slovenian coproduction called “Somnus”. Here at The Sound Temple, we are committed to offering opportunities for talented artists from around the world.

River Blue Conscious Fashion and Film Discussion Night @ The Sound Temple
Oct 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

River Blue Conscious Fashion and Film Discussion Night Contribution: $10

Common Threads Woven Through Community

FILM NIGHT
Join us on International World River Day as we screen the film River Blue is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on what’s happening to our rivers and asks us to consider – Can fashion save the planet?

Following international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, River Blue spans the globe to infiltrate one of the world’s most pollutive industries, fashion. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, this groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future.

River Blue Conscious Fashion and Film Discussion Night Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, one of our favourite iconic products has destroyed rivers and impacted the lives of people who count on these waterways for their survival.

River Blue brings awareness to the destruction of some of the world’s most vital rivers through the manufacturing of our clothing, but will also act as a demand for significant change in the textile industry from the top fashion brands that can make a difference.

Help propel positive change and protect the world’s rivers.

We will show the film then there will be an opportunity after for discussion and reflection about – What now? How can we make a difference?

Dawn Steel, the founder of Common Threads Woven Through Community, will talk about how she heard India Easton, a Year 12 Steiner School Student who presented this topic two years ago as part of her final year, and how it inspired her so much that she decided to launch this cutting-edge annual exhibition which will cut to the core of this grass roots movement that is shredding decades of fashion industry propaganda, hype and environmental abuse.

Dawn will be joined by Jeremy Hurst and Simon Cherriman.

Jeremy Hurst has 13 years’ experience as a classroom teacher and 13 years’ experience in business. Most recently he’s been working in his sharing economy start-up business. He manages his own Eco B&B here in Perth Hills and recently has been active in promoting Save Perth Hills. Jeremy has a passion for environmental sustainability and applies this to his work wherever possible.

Simon our very own local hills environmentalist who is so passionate about making change will be engaging in discussion after the film.

Common Threads Woven Through CommunityCommon Threads Woven through Community is a week-long community engagement project proudly brought to the Perth Hills following on from the World Fashion Revolution week in late April and  leading into the local Toodyay Fibre festival in June.

This exhibition includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.  These events are designed for you to leave feeling deeply inspired to become part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.

Start: 7:00pm (arrive from 6:45pm)
Ends: 9:00pm
Includes: Endless cups of warming organic teas and coffee plus a soup supper will be served

The Feminine Way @ The Sound Temple
Oct 31 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The Feminine Way - Self KindnessContribution $120 for all 3  – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available

Practice of Self Kindness – A Series of Three Women’s Circles

This series is dedicated to exploring how to be gentle with self in an ever changing landscape and greet your inner and outer life with kindness.

The Feminine Way is a safe space for women to dive inward, dump the burdens, take off the mask and for a time simply feel the truth of what it means to be woman.

Nothing to do, nothing to prove and no-one to look after.

Unfortunately, many women have had no alternative but to hide and deny their deepest desires. The Feminine Way is a journey back to wholeness, a place to claim ALL your bits … the bits you like about yourself and the bits you don’t like so much.

This space calls for women that are thirsty for genuine connection, clarity, purpose, enthusiasm, fulfilment, inspiration and self-empowered living.

We all meet as equals creating a safe and welcoming space which can hold the varied nature of the feminine. Love, pain, yearning, heartache, fear, dreams, joy, despair, compassion, creativity, denial, frustration, truth, betrayal, intuition, power, vulnerability, selflessness … and more.

Women have been gathering in sacred circle for eons, they come together to share their joys and sorrows and make sense of their jumbled experiences.

The Feminine Way is a place to take risks and allow your deepest desires to take root and blossom.

So, what happens?
For 3 weeks the same women gather in circle where there is a consistent opening and closing ritual and a time for outpouring and sharing.

Circle 1, 2 and 3 will have different themes under the banner of Practice of Self Kindness and they will each have different activities and practices.

Between each circle you are invited to practice a small exercise to assist in claiming the “Practice of Self Kindness”.

About the circle
The circle has particular guidelines that contain the mystery and safety of the space. These will be shared with you at the first circle however to support your understanding, we have listed some below.

  • We all sit as equals with no hierarchy, corners, podiums.
  • One woman speaks at a time and the other women practice open listening
  • We use “I” language and in doing so we take ownership of our own experiences, rather than hiding behind “we”, “they”, “it”.
  • When we speak we share honestly and authentically about how we feel. Speaking in this way is both powerful and courageous can take some getting used to.
  • You are your own authority and only share if you choose to do so.
  • This space is free of advice-giving, fixing, therapy, comments and feedback.
  • Judgements are left outside of the space.
  • The sacredness of the circle is dependent on maintaining confidentiality and treating each other with the utmost care and respect.

Vida Carlino describes herself as a straight shooter with a big heart and lives in Perth Hills with her soul mate (her husband). Having grown up children and 9 grandchildren life is a hoot, filled with ecstatic highs, soulful moments, joyous experiences, tragic events and deep feelings – which all help to make life extraordinary.

Vida is a Published Author, Speaker and Leader in conscious evolution, inspirational mindfulness and authentic accountability. She is a social entrepreneur, founder of Inspiration Source and author of “My Power Statement”.

By integrating ancient wisdom practices in sacred union with the neuro contemporary techniques Vida aligns intellectual, emotional and intuitive intelligence so we can feel, think and act in ways that consciously shape today and tomorrow. Vida strives to inspire everyone to live a more enriched, fulfilling and conscious life.

Vida runs a successful coaching business and one of her absolute passions is creating the space for women to gather in sacred circle. She has been holding women’s circles for many years and loves the opportunity to help women tune in and get to know themselves at the deepest level.

We welcome Vida to our team of facilitators here at The Sound Temple and look forward to her sharing her gifts with us.

Here are some beautiful words which women have had to say about their experience with Vida ….

Vida opens a gorgeous space of acceptance and invites us just ‘to be’. I love her ceremonial introduction and the ambiance she so carefully creates to make us feel welcome. There is something so deeply earnest and wise about Vida and the space she creates to make us feel comfortable is so relaxing. I felt at ease and able to be vulnerable and share and in turn it was beautiful to be able to sit, listen and be in the moment of other’s sharing. Vida’s circles encompass so much honoring, love and depth -she facilitates us all getting to know ourselves deeply.
Thank you so much Vida!!

Louise

I had not attended a sacred circle for a long time and whilst sitting in the space I felt a rigid resistance to listen and feel within myself. The words of the other women ignited my inner flame, melting and softening the hard container I had buried many of my emotions in. I felt a sense of relief and clarity to speak what I had hidden and denied. Thank you for a lovely reminder of how liberating and enlivening it is to sit in circle with other women.

A Thousand and One Nights: Stories from The Middle East @ The Sound Temple
Nov 1 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Contribution $80 – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available.

We Invite you to Join us as we Enter the World of Mythic Imagination

Roll up, Roll up, Roll up …. Hear all about it!!

This would have to be one of the best night’s out Perth has on offer! Over three hours of magical stories, sensational sound and a fabulous feast as the grand finale!

Gather your family and friends and warm your heart and soul at one of our exquisite storytelling events.

The night will unfold with our professional Storytellers leading us on a journey into sacred story.

Old mystical tales, which have been passed down from generations, are delivered in the way our ancestors told them. You will find yourself completely mesmerised and enthralled as these stories transport you to bygone years, a far cry from the busy world we live in today.

We asked one of our much-loved storytellers to tell us why these events held at The Sound Temple were so important and here’s a snippet of what she shared …

“The Sound Temple is one of the amazing organisations that have recognized the importance of reviving this ancient tradition.
They’ve seen first-hand how people are mesmerised and deeply moved by the power of oral storytelling.
That moment you hear something of your own experience in a story it’s magic. It’s healing.
It creates a feeling of shared meaning and understanding.
Creating community spaces in our society is so important. Places where people can come together and be opened up by a new experience – and then share that sense of awe or wonder or curiosity with each other.
These storytelling events are unique in that they are immersive – story, sound, community. A powerful mix”.

Another highlight of the evening is brought to you by the magic of sound. The storytelling theme for the night is supported by a sound narrative facilitator who will use their voice and their instruments to weave layers of intrigue and mystery in and around the story which will leave you absolutely spellbound.

And the Grand Finale is the coming together after the story and sound to gather together to enjoy a feast which provides a welcoming hearth to congregate around, sharing in heartfelt conversations and your journey! Joining together around story, sound and food nourishes our heart, body and soul and creates true community.

Enter into a world of Ancient Mystics as we journey together on a magic carpet of stories into the heart of the Middle East.

The tales of the Arabian Nights stem from the rich tapestry of the Islamic Golden Age and offer historical insights, tragic romances, comedies and remarkable social revelations collected over the centuries.

Come and hear how the phenomenal storyteller Scheherazade enchants and intoxicates a tyrannical King with the power of her stories, preventing her own execution and the death of many hundreds of women.

The Sound Temple team of storytellers, Melissa Min, Jaya Penelope and Jesse Williams will be joined for the night by Perth’s very own storyteller extraordinaire, Jenny Hill and Kim Echammaal Coull our soundscape artist for this rich and enchanting evening.

These tales will enchant and fill you will wonder as they transport you into the deeply mystical realm of ancient myth and magic.

Not knowing what to expect but willing to give it a go, here’s a wonderful 5 star review from one of our lovers of story which we’d like to share …

“I went in not exactly knowing what to expect, all I knew was I would be listening to some stories and a meal after.
Little did I expect to enjoy some music, while talented tellers weaved their tales for us at a beautifully reclusive and peaceful retreat in the hills.
Afterwards a feast allowed us to enjoy the surroundings and chat to late about the experience we just had.
Extremely recommended for those who love performance, art and finding hidden gems in Perth”.

This event is held in the Perth Hills at the lovely grounds and studios of The Sound Temple.

These events are aimed for an adult audience and the content is not filtered for children.

When: Friday, 1st November 2019
Start: Please arrive 15 mins early for a 7:00pm start
Finish: 10:00 pm

Included:
An evening of live storytelling and sound performances by a selection of Perth’s leading storytellers and musicians.

Create Layers of Rich Soulfood through Story @ The Sound Temple
Nov 12 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Contribution $120  – This is a ticketed event, no door sales available

Workshop on Storytelling and Voice with International Artist

We are delighted to be able to introduce Slovenian Storyteller Ljoba Jence who has been a collector of Slovene oral tradition for thirty years.

She is a superb performer, combining story and song to create layers of rich soulfood. This is her first time in Australia, although she has toured much of the world.

This 5 Hour workshop is a one-off event and should not be missed.

Here are some of Ljoba’s own words which will speak to you if you are already a storyteller and would like to tap into the magic of voice and speech which Ljoba will share at the workshop. Or if you are someone who loves story and recognises that this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from an international artist who has travelled far and wide telling ancient Slovenian myths and stories.

“A Storyteller is an artist of many languages.
Beside the vast imagery world that she or he creates and tells through speaking, with the physical and emotional body, inner feelings and with as many a tools brought to the stage as the outer support to the telling, the most important is the full presence of a storyteller.

To some, it is given by birth but for most, we need to work consciously on our development for many years of devoted learning and practicing telling live.

We will learn one or more Slovenian stories and work on such skills. Most of the work would be to support the deepening and colouring the sound of our voice and speech”.

Ljoba Jenče is a singer and storyteller with experience in collecting oral tradition among people who are carriers of knowledge and wisdom. She has travelled performing in nearly half of the world … from Tibet to Alexandria in Egypt, from Argentina to Canada and along Europe Ljoba has been singing and telling Slovenian old myths and stories.

The most important event that has made her choose this path was a moment when she recognised that while singing old songs in nature she felt the intense response of the elements and beings danced and enlivened the environment where the song was sang or the story was told.
She realised that stories and songs were not only for human beings but for the whole of creation which responds to the spoken or sung word.

Conscious speaking or formation of voice and its sounding became Ljoba’s main role and she is happy to explore those worlds with you whilst supporting and uncovering the fuller voice, its colours and many possibilities of expressions.

She is deeply inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner and the knowledge of speech formation and eurythmy that he gave to humanity hundreds of years ago. Ljoba is on a research of zodiac beings and connected sounds in our language.

Start: Tuesday 12th November 1:00pm , arrive from 12:45pm
Finish: 6:00 pm
Location: 30kms east of Perth CBD in the Hills WA (details on booking)
Included: Endless cups of warming organic teas and coffee and raw treats
To Bring: Please wear easily slip off shoes for entry into our spaces
