Audio practice with Cai Tomos

‘I hope these audio scores may be like simple kindling for the fire of the body and imagination. The scores are companions of sorts, for those of us who spend time alone in spaces. It is one way of many, to open doorways into the dialogue between sensation, imagination, and expression through the body.

There is no one-way of responding to the words, images and invitations I propose. In the practice I invite you to follow what feels useful to follow. You might continually move or be still, or move between both. The intention is to orient towards what might bring resource, and with the spirit of a beginners mind, with patience towards the mystery of the body and imagination.

As the audio score goes along,  It can be helpful to return to the breath when needed so that you can remain connected to the possible aliveness of the connections between sensation and imagination as it changes. The trickster mind can sometimes wish to participate, in a variety of  ways. We can kindly decline its invitation and place our attention someplace else. The audio scores are simple gateways into creative acts that I hope bring us into conversation with our creative selves.’

This score is available in either Welsh or English.
