***** 'SONG OF THE SOUL' WORKSHOP*****
'Each one of us carries our unique soul voice, a powerful and beautiful tool of expression gifted to us to connect and communicate with life. Our Song of our soul is our intimate expression of our true nature, our spontaneous sound of our spirit ' - Ayla
'The purpose of music is for you to become who you are, to bring what is inside of you into play, to spin a vibrating thread through you into the world, to spark life...'
This workshop is held as a ceremonial journey with the power of our voice to awaken the expression of our souls song. Our voice is the only instrument created by God, it is our connection to the truth of our being and to the prayer that we carry.
To truly sing is a journey of remembering, getting out of the way and trusting in ourselves as we surrender to the spirit of sound in us.
This space will create an opportunity for a deep discovery and opening of our voice that is born from our connection with our heart, each other and ancient sacred ways. Together we will remember how to use song as tribal people have done for millennia, to connect and speak with the spirit of life, to celebrate, to pray and to give flight to our intentions and dreams.
We will explore:
*Vocal channeling of the elements of nature
*Connecting to the Earth energies using our breath and voice.
* Use different exercises to liberate our voice and learn how to use the voice as a tool for healing, communication and free expression.
*Explore harmonies and improvisation
*Learn traditional global tribal songs
*Play with drum/rattle
*Work with traditional rituals: the healing medicine and teachings from these ancient lineages that support us to ignite our authentic inner connection to the song within our own being and to focus our offering and intentions.
This workshop is beneficial for singers on all stages of the journey, from very beginner to advanced. And yes, we are all singers!
Please bring with you:
A pen and paper
A drum and/or Rattle
Something comfy to sit on (Sheepskin/cushion) and a back rest if you have one
A stone, a flower and a feather to give as an offering
