Aural is a toll-free non-emergency hotline you can call sometimes to talk about whatever. Aural was founded by myself, Fiona Alison Duncan, in late 2016 as a way to practice active listening, intersubjectivity, and connectedness (democracy). It's an experiment: art-like, playful, and heartfelt. Maybe because I used to write about this stuff, I often receive emails and other direct textual messages pertaining to mental health, physical health, and being-ness: people asking for guidance. I'd rather respond to such queries on the phone than via text. I feel, often, overwhelmed by the visual (text is visual). We were blessed with many senses. Aural is a way for me to exercise, with focus, a sense I don't get to enough.

“Man, sometimes it takes you a long time to sound like yourself.”
― Miles Davis

Aural is a volunteer operation. All patronage will go directly to covering operational costs and towards expanding the project. I would like to get more volunteer listeners involved, offering more call hours. I'd also like to continue commissioning art, like the stock photographs John Edmonds made for Aural, and to produce promotion materials, like business cards and cellphone cases. I also intend to continue researching―as I've been in the ~1.5 years it's taken to prepare Aural―active listening, meditation, chakral systems, response-ability, body talk, idiolect, intention, trauma, projection, existentialisms, and the feedback loop of belief/concept and experience/reality.

This will offset base operational costs — hotline and website hosting.
