video about our living group
http://youtu.be/sFol8suWNCM

Contact & muziek originated through the wish to live a meaningful life. Marthe, Erik and Jeannette started to live with Leonoor in her house in 2006, in the neighbourhood Lombok in Utrecht where she already lives since 1989. In our work and lives we missed room for own initiative and creativity. We started to look for a conscious way to live together and cooperate.

We are very grateful that we have a unique chance to be engaged with meaning, social consciousness, sustainability by our way of living together and cooperating. We talk, meditate, singen, make music, meet people and are engaged with consuminderen (consuming less). After a 8 day process in May 2014 about letting go of food, during which we did not eat or drink for three days we started a process to let go of food, in a natural, free and creative way. We find it a very beautiful, inspiring process to eat less and feel (more) conscious, experiencing what eating and not eating is doing to you(r body).

By being engaged with living on light we learn to know ourselves and each other in a different way. We live in a busy performance and consumption orientated society. We realize still more how dependent we are on food and how much time we are engaged with producing, transporting, buying, preparing and consuming of food. More and more people search for new ways, want to live sustainable, care for each other, live consciously, without alcohol, meat, medicine, vaccinations, with home schooling and sharing knowledge and experiences with each other. We work hard, learn much about nature, about herbs, flowers and plants, old and new knowledge. Leonoor has contact with butterflies, who also come on her hand and flying over us, confirm us and inspire us to go further on this path.




muziek

Leonoor is the initiator of our living group Contact & muziek. She was a violinist and a violin teacher since she was 18 years old. She teached herself, Marthe, Erik and her sister Jeannette to play the viola da gamba (viol) and the lute , two instruments from the renaissance. We are a singing, viola da gamba (viol) and lute quartet and especially play music from the renaissance by heart.

We sing 4-part a capella, very slowly, meditative, as much in tune as possible. By this slow way of singing as much in tune as possible overtones arise (difference and sum tones of pure harmonies) and a sound field/aura of extra tones is audible, which gives the music depth and radiation. People are very much impressed when they hear us singing.

After the 8 day process in May 2014 to be free from the necessity of food Leonoor
composed (Dutch) 7 beautiful affirmations 4-part about love, light and the universe.

Leonoor develops new ways of making music, singing meditative without a rhythm, with space and time for expression of words, like you recite a poem by almost practicing almost daily with Marthe, Erik and Jeannette. Spontaneity, expressivity, creativity and spirituality, eating less, meditating and singing meditatively and also playing the viola da gamba (viol) slowly meditatively brings our life on a higher, lighter and more social level. Singing and making music without eating sounds and feels spacious and open.

We built bamboo flutes of one tone on which we can play melodies together. You can listen to us on the page music.

music lesson, (music) education, teaching materials

Leonoor teaches music (viola da gamba, lute and piano) to children and adults and developed teaching materials and a new way of (music) education. Jeannette draws the booklets, which you also can order.

Children (and adults) learn the music basics, in such a way that they really understand it. The children learn to make beautiful sounds and tones on bamboo flutes of one tone, and learn to play the viola da gamba (viol) and the lute.
We are engaged in a relaxed way with concentration, rest, (tonal) purity, working together, singing, (learn) to listen. We take time for new experiences, see
children.

Everything that happens with love has a healing power.
We are all connected with each other and one.
There is no distinction between me and the other.
Love connects us with each other
and solves all contradictions,
contact from soul to soul.
Every human being is a part of the whole
with his/her life and experiences.
