Embodied Voice ~ Singing Body

Training  with Christa Ray

Sept 14-17   2012

A 3 or 4 day weekend training exploring a path to Embodied Presence through excavating the full expanse of the Human Voice & Body.

Registration for 11 participants Open NOW ~~  Sep 14-16, 2012 at Butopia on Whidbey Island, WA

You will discover:
…how to sing songs and use vocal sounding as vehicles for bringing forth and integrating hidden parts of yourself and your soul.

…how to Heal the fear of freely expressing yourself through compassionate permission and the spirit of experimentation.

…a singing method based on sensing your body, sourcing somatic and archetypal images, and cultivating trust in the raw impulses that allow you to move authentic and powerful energy through your voice.

…exercises to vastly expand the range, volume, power and qualities of your voice.

…the archetypal singing shaman within you capable of singing songs to bring nature, community and self into balance and health.

This weekend workshop explores Voicework as a path to healing, embodiment of the Soul and rich empowerment. Exercises and creative processes will be drawn from Voice Movement Therapy, Body Mind Centering ™ , Roy Hart Voicework and other expressive healing art modalities.

No vocal experience necessary, just a willingness to explore, play and let your voice guide you!

What past participants are saying:

“Christa creates such a loving and safe container in which to explore the hidden potential of your own voice, body, psyche and spirit. Her workshop was packed full of information and experiences that allowed me to cultivate parts of myself with which I had been longing to connect and meet other elements of myself I had never before accessed. It was powerful beyond my expectations. I feel blessed to have met Christa and am forever changed by her unique and powerful work.” –Christina Stinchcomb

“Christa Ray is an incredible facilitator, holding a potent container for transformation. With myself and the other participants, I experienced her meeting us where we were resourced, then take us to our edge and back. She is a master at encouraging growth while nurturing the soul. If you want to experience more of yourself, connect with your inner shaman, and have a deeper understanding of the polarities within you, Christa’s workshop is the perfect place to explore and integrate an expanded version of you through voice and movement. Healing, fun, grueling, and glorious, Embodied Voice is a temple for profound awakening.” ~KC, Boulder

“Throughout our weekend together, Christa showed great sensitivity to us each as individuals, and at the same time wove our personal materials into a coherent group process that left nobody behind. Although we each came to the workshop with different levels of voice-work experience (from the professional to the bathroom singer), Christa guided each of us in our own way to using our voices to liberate, reveal, and empower. Christa’s approach to voice work has brought me in touch with new facets of my self and my self-expression, and has opened my eyes to a profound way of working therapeutically with others. I highly recommend her as a teacher, mentor, and guide to the inner realms.”
