9:00-10:00am: Inner View:  Gabriella Brunel" Science of Sanskrit” Gabriella went to St James school in London and then studied Sanskrit at Oxford.  After trying various jobs, her love of Sanskrit got the better of her.  She released an album in May 2020 and a documentary is under way about the power of Sanskrit sounds.  How do you become a vehicle for the creative process?  “I have never worked in the usual sense of the word because teaching Sanskrit, and writing and recording songs is what I love.  Every day is different and an unfolding of myself. After leaving university, the question was ‘what next?’  The world didn’t seem to need me, or so I felt.  Every moment is important, valuable… and if it wasn’t being used for something that felt worthwhile … I couldn’t do it.  My dear parents have always supported me, but to keep myself going I worked as a nanny, and taught piano and singing to young children, whilst performing stand-up comedy, writing musicals, singing songs I had written with my band in various pubs and clubs, and chanting Sanskrit as a personal practice. But I underwent a quarter-life crisis: even though the comedy and song were creative, they had lost significance.  Another road was waiting, and I began to teach Sanskrit in yoga schools.  One day a fellow Sanskrit teacher asked me to make a short film on why I loved Sanskrit.  I posted it on the You Tube channel that I’d used for my old comedy videos and it all began from there. Musical comedy began to take a back seat and Sanskrit singing took over.  Instead of writing songs that “I” wanted to write, something began to shift and I began working on songs that wanted to be written.  An audience was there waiting to receive them.  The recording studio I’d previously used for my songs in English now echoed with the sounds of Sanskrit.
