Our voice has creative power. It can agitate and ensnare or it can bring clarity, joy, and trust. Our listening also has power – the power to transform suffering, anger, and limitations into peace, understanding, and opportunity. This workshop will help us develop a precise inner awareness of our speaking, listening, chanting and singing through teachings on mindful communication, a gentle practice of toning, and special exercises in stretching, breathing, and relaxation.
No voice-work or singing experience necessary. All voices have unique qualities and will blend together in our singing as a group. Come, open your voice and enjoy!
