A 12-week interactive online course that brings together metaphysical principles with cutting edge somatic practices

It's like yoga for your voice 


If you've ever lost your voice, it was probably while you were going through a crisis, a dark night of the soul or a rite of passage. Nothing reflects how you feel as much as your voice and when you lose it, your Soul is calling out for attention and that call needs to be heard. 


In meditative vocal practices to become more fully embodied and expressed you'll explore your voice, learn to trust yourself and unlock the wisdom of your soul. You'll understand how to change your state, feel subtle energy and open doorways into mystical realms of experience within yourself, because your Voice is the seat of your Soul.


We'll be covering 

- How your voice can regulate your nervous system and reduce anxiety 

- How sound is a source of pleasure that connects to your sensuality

- The three basic principles of chanting that underpin all mystical traditions, so that you can experience altered states of consciousness 

- The five pure vowels and how to work with them to release tension and feel expansive

- How to use consonants and syllables to strengthen your voice and move energy

- Vocal breathing exercises to deepen your breath, strengthen your diaphragm and regulate your heart rate


This isn't about learning some vague or abstract spiritual concept, nor is it about singing. It's about unlocking the dormant potential in your voice.


This is a 3 month course with weekly practice sessions, modules, interactive elements & more. Starting September 2020. Cost: £375
