Visuddha or the throat chakra is our channel for communication, self-expression and creative identity. When the fifth chakra is open, we can easily express emotions, needs and self-identity. It is the medium through which our voice contributes and connects to the vibrational pull of the universe and dances in it’s rhythm. It’s power is paramount for personal change and growth. Any sort of block in the fifth chakra can cause stifling feelings of being silenced, misunderstood and lonely, resulting in disconnectedness from ourselves and each other.

So what tools can we access to keep this channel open?
How do we unlock our most free and authentic voice?
How can we make our truest selves heard?

This workshop will guide you through an ancient singing tradition of self-discovery and change by unlocking the power of your voice through the fifth chakra. With specific attention to the sound of our voices, improvised singing, and spontaneous chant, you will learn how to use breath, body and sound to find more freedom in your voice. You will also be aided in unraveling muscular tension within the throat that inhibits your ability to communicate and make sound. Through intentional toning, chant and singing we will create spontaneous songs that will help us find more freedom in our voices and lives. Each participant will walk away with a new song in their heart and a profound understanding of what it is to be truly heard.
