Vocal Healing Workshop

Teacher: Dori Levine

Participants are guided on a journey to their inner selves; an exploration of body ans soul in search of their true voice. We work to uncover years of layers and blocks whether they be psyhchological, emotional or physical that prevent one from singing out with joy, effortlessness and confidence. Through the use of guided imagery, gentle streching and movment, and deep whole-body breathwork we will arrive to an altered state of relaxation which sets the stage to help us search for what’s been “in the way” and attempt to let it go. We’ll do group “toning” which is a healing form of singing and experiment with other ways in which the voice can be used as a healing instrument. We’ll extend this work into improvisational excercises as vehicles in which we can practice “turning it loose”!

For Whom is the Workshop Appropriate?

This workshop is for non-singers as well as singers, dancers, actors, artists and performers at all levels. Non-singers may experience the joy and gratification of expressing feeling vocally from a deep place within. For experienced singers and singers-in-progress the workshop is loaded with tips and tools for warming-up, increasing resonance, opening and waking-up the voice as well as breathing, placement, vocal technique and improvisation. Great singers who feel “boxed in” and would like tp start taking more chances and for anyone who would like to find their voice and set it free!

Space and materials needed: Quiet room either carpeted or with rugs or mats so we can lie on the floor.
