Explore the Power of Your Voice for Healing
A sound healing and vocal workshop for patients and their loved ones
The Power of the Voice
Through the various techniques of sound healing, vocalizing, toning and freewriting, people can gain the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of honoring their own voice and working with their built-in, stress-relieving musical instrument.
The tools and techniques discussed and practiced in this workshop will assist you in daily life. These small actions, when used routinely, will help you to pay mindful attention to your heart and voice, while experiencing the health benefits of sound, vibration and self-expression, with clarity and joy.
Vocal toning creates a vibration that, studies show, promotes healing throughout the body on a cellular level.
In this workshop you will explore breathing techniques, writing for healing, vocal toning and chanting.
Workshop participants will:
feel a reduction in anxiety and a sense of peace and grounding in their own body, mind and spirit
learn vocal exercises to help free their voice and experience sound healing
learn how to clear chakras for better energy (chi) flow
learn tools and techniques to utilize in their daily lives
