All over the world, music and singing has had a primarily spiritual purpose.In this workshop, we will experience how our voice can connect us to deeper levels of ourselves and to the incredibly healing world of sound. In a loving and supportive environment, we learn to listen intuitively, making sacred sounds and using the power of intention to heal ourselves, each other and our communities. Together, we will discover and reclaim our own voice as a source of inner power. For all those who wonder why we are making all those strange sounds when we meditate together and yet have no idea why you feel so good after, this is the workshop for you! Equally accessible for singers and non-singers alike, believers and non-believers!
