Who is it for?
This event is for everyone with a voice who feels called to explore and strengthen their relationship with their voice. You do not have to be an experienced singer. This is not about singing well, pretty, or in the “right” way. This is a space and place of discovery, remembrance, embodiment and collective liberation.
When Greta & Heather discovered that their independent offerings around voice are so complementary and harmonious they decided to bring them together for a fabulous full bodied daylong communion.
The Whole Body True Voice Communion intends to strengthen our connection to our unique voices by discovering and celebrating our natural resonance. We honor that voice is an extension of breath and breath is key to our embodiment. Our voice is medicine. Every one of us carries a sacred power in our voice – to enchant ourselves and our world. The voice is a direct channel for our most authentic self, making vocal expression both deeply vulnerable and powerful. Many of us are estranged from our voices, fear to sing, blocked by shame and wounding. Whole Body True Voice Communion is a space to lovingly feel and heal, to clear and open the channel of our voice through bodily accordance. We begin with acceptance of our unique voice exactly as it is. We root into ease instead of effort, practice softening instead of pushing through. We cultivate a direct relationship with the energetic quality of our sound, its resonance in our bodies, and the participation of our whole body in our vocal expression.
The body is always speaking. Somatic practices help us listen to the ways our body is communicating. Attuning to the language of sensation, singing and sounding with bodily awareness naturally opens states of bliss, awakens inner wisdom, intuition and power, and catalyzes healing for our whole body, and each other. Reclaiming our voice frees us in all respects.
We honor that the freeing of voice may also bring with it grief, anger and frustration. By anchoring our communion in somatic practice and nervous system regulation tools, we will each have greater capacity to titrate, hold and attend to whatever arises. We allow harmonies and welcome dissonance with curiosity. We pendulate awareness between our own expression and the embodied experience of our collective expression. Deepening our felt sense of belonging, we will harvest our gifts together.
