Soul Voices Workshops
Finding the Inner voice
In some places in Africa, when the future mother is aware to her wish to give birth, she goes out of the village and sits under a tree. She listens to the surrounding nature and to the nature within until she hears the song of her future child.
Before making love, she teaches her lover the song and later on she teaches this song to the tribe people. This song will be sung to the new born from its birth and throughout his whole life: in moments of sickness, sadness as well as moments of joy – on his wedding day as well as on his death bed.
This song expresses his essence, therefore whenever a member of the tribe sins or does wrong, the tribe people gather around him and instead of punishing him they sing him his song to remind him of his essence.
The 'Soul Voices' workshop invites you to explore your hidden inner voice and get an access to your vocal emotional expression.
The workshop Content
In these intensive two to four days 'Soul Voices' workshop we do a unique combination of classical vocal techniques with body oriented psychotherapy techniques. Together with voice practice, it includes experiencing various tools such as movement, touch, drawing, writing and meditation. We will encourage personal and group exploration in a supportive environment which will allow each one to find his or her own soul-print and express it through the voice. Through personal process that each participant is going through we aim at opening new dimensions and new possibilities. Singing might be one outcome of it.
Who is it for?
The 'Soul Voices' workshop suits anyone who is interested in exploring the connection between voice and soul and who is ready to participate in a process of getting closer to his or her essence and expressing it through singing.
There is no need for previous experience in singing. If you are afraid of singing and have never sung before or if you are singing but feel that something is lacking or 'not in tune' – this workshop is for you.
