…It was like there was a magical connection between me and this instrument. He would tell me how to play it. That's a very native way of thinking... Mary Youngblood
The Native Flute is an easy instrument to play. Even if you think you know nothing about music, you'll be amazed at what you can do in a short amount of time and with little practice. You just need to create the space, allow yourself to experiment, open yourself to the unknown, and stop thinking about “how” to become music with the flute, and you will live a transforming experience.
All existence is in motion, creating infinite vibrations of light and sound – life. There's been music going on since the beginning of time. Every form of life, in essence, combines in itself a sequence of vibrations ordered by rhythm, harmony and melody. When we tune in with nature, we create a relationship and resonance with the essence. You too have a song, it's happening in you, let it play!
In animistic, shamanic cultures, the music of wind instruments, are independent beings, which were given by divine ancestors to fulfill specific functions in invocations, rituals, ceremonies, etc... The sound of breath transports vital energy. All beings are music breathed by the Great Spirit. Listen to your music and sing the breath of your soul.
The native flute has the power to develop in us a fluid, pleasurable and therapeutic spontaneous musicality. It reduces anxiety, leads to relaxation, puts us in resonance with nature, in addition to favoring meditative and contemplative states. When playing the flute, we start to value silence, intervals and intuitively wake up to true listening.
Musicality is natural in us, and can be developed or not. Ancestral instruments invite us to rescue our musical expression. My encounter with the Native Flutes, transformed my life, enabled the expression of feelings that vibrate directly from the soul, sensations that hover in a subtle space where unspeakable words in a universal language inhabit.
With the Native Flute,
We can disconnect from the musical conditioning ingrained in our culture of “right” and “wrong”, and discover the magic of spontaneous music, which happens naturally. When playing a Native Flute, you will feel the magical and powerful effect that its simplicity and sound involve people and yourself, even if you consider that your improvisation has been imperfect or inexperienced. We all have the right to share our vibration and be heard, and with the Native Flute, we can redeem this right, in addition to having the opportunity to communicate our emotions in resonance with the other vibrations of the Universe.
