This workshop introduces exercises in tone, sound, and song to awaken your cosmic voice and skillfully weave it into the universal tapestry of vibration.Integrating healthy vocal technique with fundamental principles of sound healing, we cultivate a deeper familiarity with and trust in our voices, such that they become the resounding instruments that they are meant to be. Joining in the dance of sound and silence, we open the creative channel and allowthe voice to flow freely through us, unconstrained by inhibition.
Go beyond the fear of singing and dive into the pure joy of the experience! Participants will be guided through the vast spectrum of their voices via simple and accessible, yet profound practices suitable for people of all levels of singing experience. With continued practice, the concepts introduced open path-ways for each participant’s unique “voice journey” to unfold infinitely. Join us to experience liberation of your voice and connection to all things through sound.
No previous singing experience necessary –only the desire to free your voice!
