It’s a deep and joyful process helping us to vocalize our authentic self. We can find our own voice, and sing ourselves through difficulties. But it takes courages to connect to our deep core essence and express our emotions. So I create a safe space: like an ancient singer, I use my voice, courage, and love to sing a tribe together. Songs are the most powerful form of communication, simultaneously penetrating both our minds and our souls. So we work with body and mind: 1. Vocal technique and the joy of singing, embodiment of the voice: breathing, making exercises to deeply connect our voice to our body, visceral visualization processes, practicing how to pour our emotions into singing, learning easy melodies to open and strengthen our voices. 2. The basic building blocks of songwriting: embracing our personal history through free writing, discussions. Playing with sounds, intonation, and tempo, pairing our own words with an already-existing melody. All participants will create a first draft of their own songs growing out of their own explorations.
