Jill Purce talks to Dr Guy Hayward about her pioneering Healing Voice Mandala process. In this, the group itself becomes a mandala incorporating multiple and deep layers of symbolism in relation to the structure of consciousness according to the Tibetan understanding of the mind. Jill does these ceremonies twice a year, each with a different theme, process and practice. The group spends 5 days journeying through the mandala of extended practice and deep psychological explorations. The mutual revelations are embedded in continuous and repeated chants, leading to profound spiritual and psychological transformations, as well as the joyful discovery of sonorous community.

Sound Creates Form - Jill Purce (10:41)
We are told the world was created through sound....sound creates form. Jill demonstrates this with overtone chanting. The overtones introduce pattern into formless heaps of powder on a vibrating plate- the form of the sound itself. This video shows these cymatic patterns as they occur.
