“The Healing Voice”
Workshop Series for Finding and Developing One’s True Voice
This series of 4 workshops explores the world of sound and subtle vibration, using the human body and its vocal cords as our main instrument.
We focus on re-discovering, developing and liberating our natural voice in its fullness. Through practical exercises we pave the way to finding our deeply personal path (Dharma/life purpose). Working on the voice will connect us to the inner world of peace and wisdom. It will help to heal our physical and emotional injuries.
Beginners are most welcome, no former voice or singing skills are required.
