No previous experience is required, only a curious heart.
A journey for women or anyone that identifies themself as women.
This two-day online workshop for women, is an invitation to sing, sound, voice, play, explore and awaken all the different aspects of our vocal expression so that we can reconnect to our inner emotional landscape of feelings that may have been silenced and buried for too long.
When we discover that singing can provide a safe container to release the repressed aspects of our voice and soul, the power, healing and vitality which is expressed can be truly profound and transformational.
"In particular, women have suffered at the hands of a society that wants them to look, behave and sound in a certain way. Many women have repressed a whole octave of sound and along with it, a whole spectrum of feelings." Paul Newham
The workshop will be recorded and delivered to you soon after the weekend has completed. This means you will all be able to revisit and practice in your own time. The platform that we will use throughout the workshop is Zoom.
