~ Inspired by our site ~
Want to know where its heading.
Since getting into didgeridoo playing I've been inspired by its healing power and potential. Its an amazing musical instrument but it seems to instill and inspire much much more.
Every person who teaches, performs, makes, or plays has a different slant on this instrument. This is its beauty. Its like everyone of us, individual and perfect.
If there's one slant on didg that I feel has been not given much attention is, why is it so haunting and powerful, what is its symbolic and physical role as such as popular instrument in our times, how do we open to it as a healing instrument, how can we journey with it as a sacred instrument.
Many are passionate about this, but few are sharing this from a western persons perspective. Hearing from Traditional indigenous folk gives us a glimpse in how didg is a sacred instrument in a tribal context, but does it help us open to how we can integrate the sacred and spiritual into our own didgeridoo journey.
Didgeridoo takes us there on some level anyway. What worries me is the nature of western approach to any instrument, is to dissect it understand it and master it. Technical mastery in playing is fast becoming or already has become the focus. Whether conscious to it or not, very little attention is given to the spirituality side other than the western or tourists way of buying spirituality by listening to talks, watching aboriginal dancers, going to a didg workshop, etc. Spirituality becomes a commodity something that is consumed like our music or entertainment these days.
Didgeridoo was not the focus traditionally it was one of many instruments and voices weaving a story a ritual, celebrating life.
In coming month's I look forward to uploading onto the site blogs and vids that explore these subjects.
Thanks for taking the time to read about my passion for didgeridoo and where I desire to take it. If you've read this far , I bet your passionate about didg too. Its a great journey , hey.
All power to where it leads us .
