Whether you believe you “can’t carry a tune” or you identify as an experienced singer, you may –as many of us do– long to expand your vocal abilities, free yourself from the fears surrounding creative expression, and allow your voice to become a resounding instrument of your truth. Developing a regular vocal practice is one of the most physically, mentally, emotionally, & energetically nourishing things you can do for yourself. The effects of a regular practice flow into your daily your life, allowing for less stress, greater sense of well-being, and empowered creative expression. Voice Journey guides you through an exploration of the vocal techniques from all over the world — including Classical Indian, Tibetan, Afro-Diasporan, and North and South American indigenous traditions – as well as contemporary sound healing practices and musical forms. *No singing experience necessary. Come join us!
