The Embodied Voice and Shamanic Singing Retreat with Christa Ray
SEPTEMBER 26-29, 2014….DISCOVER…how to sing songs and use vocal sounding as vehicles for bringing forth and integrating hidden parts of yourself and your soul.
…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.
TRANSFORM …fear of freely expressing yourself through compassionate permission and the spirit of experimentation.
AWAKEN…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. This is an invaluable training for performers, speakers, singers, therapists and adults interested in embodied vocal presence.
No vocal experience necessary, just a willingness to explore, play and let your voice guide you!
