what does freedom feel like as a sound? when was the last time you connected with the power of your voice and allowed it to move you? how does your voice represent you?
the human voice is a powerful tool for connection, feeling and expression. unique to each of us, our voices carry wisdom, memory and connection to spirit. unfortunately, many of us have been conditioned to use our voices in limited ways, or have been silenced in various ways by oppressive powers of conditioning.
in this 2 hour online workshop, we will in the safety of our own homes be able to explore various embodied vocal techniques to help connect to our voices as sacred, vibrant and important parts of our being(s). through breathwork, somatic explorations and vocal games, we will practice feeling our voices individually and as part of a collective.
no previous experience with vocal work is required, come in clothes that you are comfortable moving in, advise housemates of sound in advance, and arrive with an open mind + sense of curiosity.
