Please bring your Native American Flute. If you don’t own one we have extras to lend you. We will have flutes for sale at Breakthrough.
This workshop series is based on the sacredness of the music within inviting your Soul to connect with your flute.
You will learn how to PLAY the Native American Flute. You will learn to play exactly as the first flute was played over 10,000 years ago. Imagine closing your eyes and connecting with divine energies, letting go of control and ego and simply breathe divine breath into the flute. The music you play is like a prayer, the music is played in that moment and may never be played again. This music you play WILL change the vibration of the space around you. Playing is a wonderful form of meditation when you play without thought, when you simply play from your heart and therefore the Source.
Anthony uses the flutes as a healing medium during ceremony as the flute itself when played delivers a sonic sound frequency of 432 Hz. This frequency is said to be the “DNA Healing Frequency”. Flutes are also tuned to 528 Hz said to be the “LOVE” frequency. When you play you will be receiving this healing as well.
You will not learn music, you will be creating your own music.
You will play not only for yourself, you will play for those around you and the angels. They do listen to your song and your prayer. All will feel the vibrational change.
You will be taught the sacredness and history of the flute.
Flutes will be available for those of you who have not yet acquired one and are waiting to learn how to play before you do so. There will be no charge for the flute.
At the end of the course you WILL be a flute player.
Saturday July 7
Playing Fundamentals: During this class you will learn the ceremonial blessing of the flute, we will call on divine energies to play through us. The flute is a divine instrument constructed from Mother Earth’s natural resources. You first will learn to breathe into the flute and how the power of your breath changes the key and the pitch. You will also learn to use the holes to create notes and melodies.
Saturday July 14
Advanced Techniques: We will be creating a sacred space as we call on the angels and practice calling on them. You will know as you play when they are with you. You will be shown melody transitions you can create using your breath and the holes. You will learn advanced finger to hole transitions that create unique music. This is your time to create music and experiment.
Saturday July 21
Creating Music: “Solo and group”. Flute Blessing and Angel calling ceremony. In this class you will be guided on how to create music in the moment and from your heart using all that you have learned so far. You will learn what flute keys join in duets harmoniously. Your solo will be performed in a circle with the other participants and their eyes closed. They will not know who is playing. We will then experiment with duets and group performance.
Testimonial for Anthony: You have a divine, loving, warrior energy in your soul, that is rooted deeply within this earth, and well connected to cosmic energies. The music you play, instantly harmonizes energies and lifts the vibration.
Who is Anthony?: “My given name is Anthony Barr and my spirit name was gifted to me by spirit and is “Gentle Deer”. The tribe I have spent some time with is the Ojibway from the Garden River Indian Reserve in Sault St. Marie, in northern Ontario. One of my teachers is a medicine man on that reserve. I completed my training in four years. In 2009 I was gifted with an eagle feather and he sent me on my way with the words, “you have learned everything you need know to perform these centuries-old Native American ceremonies.
I purchased my first flute in Glastonbury UK in 2010. The following day I played my flute for the first time without any musical experience inside the White Springs Well next to the Chalice Well. 30 people were in that well. The music I played was simple but to my surprise was very powerful and it did “come from the source”. Since then I have performed many “Healing Through Sacred Sound” ceremonies using seven flutes representing each of the chakras.
I recently recorded a CD called “Seven Sacred Directions”. Using the philosophy of playing from the heart, unhindered by rehearsing or any form of planning I recorded seven tracks. After listening in the studio to the recorded seven tracks there was no editing needed which is truly magical for 47 minutes of recorded music. I used only half a day of my full day in the studio. The recording engineer was amazed.”
“The flute will enrich your spiritual life and your day to day life in so many ways.”
