Vibration is as omnipresent as the air around us. It influences us on physical, mental, emotional, and energetic levels, in ways that can be so subtle as to be barely noticeable, yet so profound as to shift our entire mood or state of mind almost instantly. Our voices also carry this game-changing capacity, as they reverberate throughout our bodies and resonate the spaces around us. In this workshop, we will peel back the layers of fear, doubt, and control that prevent us from fully experiencing that subtle & profound vibrational power of our voices. Working with both meditative and expressive methods drawn from a spectrum of global vocal cultures, including ancient sound traditions and contemporary forms, we can surrender to the flow of creativity that naturally runs through us and reap plentiful benefits of the voice as meditation, medicine, and magic. No previous singing experience necessary – only the desire to explore & free your voice.
