Consciousness From An Artist's Perspective

Claire Hedin

Friday September 28, 2018, 7:30 - 9:30PM

Why are we not yet creating societies that reflect the phenomenal nature of the Universe? What do humans need to understand, or simply need, in order to come together in a more harmonious way? Our Universe is highly interactive and is the ultimate expression of creativity, relying on chaos and order, patterns of relationship, and it seems to be waiting for us to catch on to our own creativity. So... what's it going to take??

Each person walking this earth has a special access to knowing, to being, and to creating. A big part of our healing journey is to walk that path, to experiment and connect with the phenomena of the universe, to see how we influence it, and vice versa. If there are different modalities, different types of people, with different gifts and perspectives, then we need to perhaps have a greater understanding of those differences. As an artist and a highly sensitive person, yet hailing from a family of pragmatists (!), Clare is learning to walk a path that moves, with ease, between these ways of knowing.


She wishes to share with you part of her journey of being an artist in a world that favors rational intelligence, why she thinks even our understanding of 'being rational' is not quite accurate, and what we can do about it in our own lives. Part of this presentation will also include our better understanding of our own ways of knowing (our 'knowing bias'), and the ways we can shift our own state of being in order to access greater healing and wisdom. She will bring her music and art into the conversation, in a slide show, and also with some improvised live healing music. You will leave with an invitation to continue the great journey of self-awareness with some new ideas, some heartfelt reflections (Clare's and yours), and the feeling of music, hope, and healing, in your bones. There will be CDs available to purchase.

Clare Hedin is a sound healer, educator of consciousness and an artist. She was born in England, UK, and migrated to California in her mid 20's to pursue her creativity and to discover her true purpose. A public speaker of many years, she co-designed the Sound Healing Program at the Sound Healing Institute, SF, spent five years taking original healing music into Oakland Children's Hospital and lectures at SFSU on Creativity & Innovation. She has 8 CDs - and is completing her book on Dynamic Emergence - An Original Theory of Consciousness that explores the human experience of being a living system in a sentient universe, and how shifting our understanding of who we are will shift our appreciation for how to create holistic societies.

"Clare is a vocal, tonal, resonance and energy master. She reads the underlying dynamics and aspiration in a group field and brings those hidden dimensions into the most fulfilling and harmonious expression. Clare knows that the evolving edge of healing lies in exploring our collective emergence…and she knows how to bring us to that edge. Maybe you have never heard the sound of our collective longing, our collective sorrow or our collective joy but you will in the presence of her work!”
