About The Event
Take a very deep dive into your throat chakra. Your voice is the primary interactive vehicle and personal vibration that you take into the world. It helps you to create your identity and forms your personal energy. An open throat literally opens up the soul of every person.
This Throat Chakra Workshop is designed to explore the speaking voice, the simple mechanics of how the voice works, how to awaken the expressive voice, the capacity to truly listen, the breath and how your body supports and connects these. Learning how to open up the voice is a life-changing and liberating experience. The process presented in this workshop enables us to open up our sound and listen deeply to others as we release throat constriction created in the past and let our energy flow.
This workshop will include a short relaxation meditation with chakra seed sounds, an explanation of how the healthy voice functions, breath work, toning, a “listening lab”, varied vocal exercises, movement, exploratory sound making, chanting and open discussion. Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to move and use their voice. No singing experience is necessary.
