SOULSPEAK EXAMPLES, SITES AND PROJECTS




SOME EXAMPLES OF SOULSPEAK 
AND THE FORMS IT CAN TAKE



ONE OF THE BEST WAYS 
TO KNOW SOULSPEAK IS TO LISTEN TO IT.

Below is a SOUNDCLICK Player with many types of SOULSPEAK spontaneous spoken poems.We call them speakings. The Player contains 41 speakings, beginning with the haunting DARK JOURNEY and ending the mysterious THIS IS THE WAY. They are called SPEAKINGS

All of the SPEAKINGS can be downloaded and /or played by clicking here: 





 


For those who wish to create their own speakings, or other instinctive SOULSPEAK art forms, be aware that learning to speak should be learned before proceeding to the other instinctive art forms.


Also be aware that speaking is primarily learned by listening to speakings. Simply listening in a relaxed way will begin to awaken that ability, which currently lies dormant. All that it takes after that is a learning a simple SOULSPEAK technique for quieting the conscious mind and focusing the unconscious.

Here is a link to some simple
SOULSPEAK tutorials
for the various instinctive art forms.


Here are some DREAMSTORIES, which are a video form of speaking:







Here's some music I composed with Garage Band to assist me in creating my speakings. Speakings, like the ancient preliterate oral poetry is easier when composed to music.  








 
The JUSTIN SPRING Show, my web radio talk show on Varieties of Spoken Poetry and Spontaneous Storytelling. It can be very informative as to how SOULSPEAK compares to other forms of spoken poetry.

Click on the Playlist symbol on the SPREAKER Player to select different episodes you'd like to listen to and hit Play. Episodes can be also be downloaded as mp3 Podcasts.


 







What you will hear on our audio recordings (and see on our videos) are eclectic contemporary visuals and sounds created spontaneously from the creative unconscious.

Nothing is rehearsed, planned or edited. What you hear and see is what was created at that moment.



We call these highly spiritual, spontaneous communal oral/musical poems, speakings and their video counterparts: Dreamstories.

We believe SOULSPEAK offers poets an attractive alternative to our contemporary, over-intellectualized written poetry, especially if they are seeking to move their poetry into audio and video forms.

We have taught a simplified form of SOULSPEAK to thousands of individuals of all ages, many of them students, allowing them to create beautiful SOULSPEAK poems within minutes.

Many have also participated through our SOULSPEAK Healing Programs, as SOULSPEAK allows anyone to speak from the unconscious in a beautiful, healing and cathartic way.


Because SOULSPEAK bypasses the conscious mind, it is especially effective in treating those groups resistant to standard therapeutic procedures. A White Paper on those results is available by clicking here.

SOME NEW SOULSPEAK PROJECTS








I am a big eater and a big fan of family owned restaurants that serve great food at good prices and who see their restaurants not only as a way of making a living but also as a way of sharing of the things they love.


Photobucket
I have compiled a series of video reviews of restaurants in the Sarasota, Miami, and Florida Keys as well as in Alamos and Merida Mexico. These are all of places where I love to eat and have never had a bad meal.








 




    As many of you may know, I have a strong interest in alternative world views (UFOs, alien abductions, psychic healing, Atlantis, etc) but am dismayed how uninformed many proponents of these views are of the nature of the preliterate sources they are using as stone cold facts to support their theories.


 





 I'm also dismayed how ignorant some proponents are of the power of the unconscious mind to project visions into this world, preferring to see those psychic events as alien abductions from outer space. 





I have started a new blog to supply what I see as necessary corrections. Click here to see it: Investigation of Alternative World Views




Here is a sample of a few of the videos:
