Explore • Express • Experiment • Embody
The voice is the mirror of the soul: At the same time the voice has its home in the body. We will focus on becoming more aware of our bodies and the natural flow of breath and sounds within. By exploring the connections between voice, body and soul we are enabled to express what is found there. A creative combination of vocal techniques, movement and bodywork encourages participants to experiment by releasing the power of their natural voices in a safe, supportive environment.
Each day will begin gently, tuning in to our bodies, breath and voices: resting, rolling, stretching, shaking, bending, walking, dancing, groaning, moaning, sighing, squealing… whatever is needed to get ourselves into the flow where we can fully embody the voice in the moment. Attention will be given to listening to ourselves, each other and the stillness between the sounds. We will play with sound and rhythm games and create group soundscapes that can be meditative or playful. Practices which help to heal blocks in voice, emotions and body will be taught; one session being dedicated to the Voicing the Soul process which uses the Chakra system with individual affirmations. Sound meditations, toning and overtoning add to the exploration of the healing voice.
Each session will end in group singing, with an emphasis on chants which honour Mother Earth.
