Workshop Details

This retreat will introduce you to core sound and vocal practices that can help transform and embody your sound, express your truth, and empower your life. Your “naked” or authentic voice is a unique bridge between you and the rest of the world. Your vocal sound is a catalyst for conscious, caring communication. Once fully embodied, your unique sound can help dissolve alienation and loneliness, shift conflict into creative expression, and ignite the courageous, compassionate heart. Your true voice can become a shining torch that dissolves shadow and melts the frozen music of old narratives. The natural sound and music of your soul bypasses the rational mind, and activates a quality of surrender or kenosis (letting go) that can release self-limiting beliefs or habits of mind.
In the Body of Your Voice invites you into a direct experience of unconditional loving presence — the foundation and anchor point of true self-leadership — accessed through the alchemy of spoken, sung, and silent sound. Working with energy movement, unique sound keys, and vibrational building blocks, you can integrate your highest aspirations with your grounded purpose on earth and come home to yourself, to live fully inside your own skin.
