Unlocking Vishuddha Through Sound and Song
Vishuddha or the throat chakra is our channel for communication, self expression and creative identity. It is our best tool for expressing emotion, feeling, need and self identity. It is the channel through which we best connect to the vibrational pull of the universe and dance 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 misunderstood, unheard and lonely, leaving a sense of disconnectedness from ourselves and each other.
So what strategies do we have to keep this channel open? How do we find the key to unlock our most free and authentic voice? How do we best communicate our needs and desires? How can we be heard?
This workshop will guide you on a journey of self discovery, utilizing the power of change facilitated by the fifth chakra. With specific attention to singing, sound and spontaneous chant, you will learn how to use breath and bodywork to find more freedom in the sound of your voice as well as unravel muscular tension within the throat that inhibits sound. Seed sounds and toning will be used and collectively we will create spontaneous songs with the intention of allowing more freedom into our lives.
Each participant will walk away with a profound understanding of what it is to be heard and a new song in their heart.
Healing and the Art of Spontaneous Chant
Since ancient times healers have known that vibration plays a unique role in transforming emotional and physical landscapes. From the overtones of the gong to the ring of Tibetin singing bowls, the vibration of instruments has proven to have profound effect on the healing journey, but none of as significant as the human voice. From toning to chant to mantra to song, the vibration of one’s voice has the power to manifest change from within and alter the vibration of every atom and molecule that surrounds it.
In this workshop, participants will be led on a journey of self discovery and healing through the voice, sound and spontaneous chant. You will be expertly guided into a fuller experience of your own voice and the voice the community, exploring toning, seed sounds, personal mantra, improvised chanting and singing. You will learn to use vibration to facilitate healing and change in areas of the body and your life that ask for it. Finally, you will experience the profound joy of beckoning the divine through communal singing and spontaneous song.
