Why I love this art form:
Collaborative vocal improvisation teaches people how to drop into their bodies, their truth, their hearts, and connect from that place and create beautiful music together. We nurture each other with sound-- the body and spirit soak it up. It is a balm in these word heavy times, when people are exhausted by polarization, the news, and a general lack of listening. It teaches us to be generous, to provide support for someone to soar and express their truth. It teaches us to drop into a deeper intelligence, to listen to where the music wants to go.

Sounding the Soul, Santa Fe, NM, dates soon!
Experience the healing power of your voice and the joy of improvised singing.
For thousands of years, mantras have been used to heal the body and mind and connect with spirit. We will explore Sanskrit mantras and chants as vibrational tools to open the body and voice. From this centered place, we will play with spontaneous-music making, finding melodies and harmonies together in a potent circle of sound. Singing heals and enlivens us. We come into the organic self, allowing a nourishing river to flow.
For all levels of singers wanting to deepen their connection to their voice.
Tuning Into Nature, July 28th 10-5 pm
Kerhonkson, New York
What happens when we listen deeply to nature? In this workshop, we will explore connecting to the earth with sound, movement, and silence. Discover the process of rewilding your voice, allowing natural music to emerge. Dropping into the senses, we will deepen our awareness of the natural world. We will collaborate with nature and allow her mystery and beauty to infuse our musical creations.
The art of vocal improvisation strips away layers and reveals the vulnerability and power of your natural, true voice. It’s a wellspring of inspiration. You sing the deep truths of the moment. When you tap in, it’s spellbinding.
We will explore spontaneous sounding and song creation in community, playing with rhythm, textures, melody, and harmony. Singing heals and enlivens us. It brings life to our creativity. We sing our prayers. We come into the organic self, allowing a nourishing river to flow.
