Can you imagine your own resonance? Can you imagine listening beyond the edge of your own imagination? Can you imagine that every cell in your entire body is vibrating all the time? Can you imagine the tuning of the universe? Can you imagine the echoes of all the footsteps you have ever taken?

– Pauline Oliveros

Seminar Part 1 – January 27th, 2-5PM

Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp was formed by the Ramapough Lenape nation to educate the public on the impending crisis of the AIM and Pilgrim pipeline that threaten the water supply in our region. Join us to hear from water protectors and to listen to the sounds of this sacred site.

The Ramapough Lenape Nation has had to shoulder a large amount of legal fees to protect their right to live and worship on this sacred site. If you are able, we are requesting guests bring a cash donation to contribute to these legal fees, and to the continuation of the work of those at the Split Rock Sweetwater Camp.

Seminar Part 2 – February 10th, 2-5PM

Together we’ll explore the sounds of our city, practice ways of listening to place, to community, and to personhood, and introduce you to our new initiative – “Music City” – which celebrates the incredible diversity of music-making communities in Orange NJ. 

Led by Margaux Simmons, Doug Farrand and Ray Sykes.
