Experience the magic as your voice connects you to your true energetic and emotional nature. Feel music clearing and opening energetic channels, becoming a gateway for divination and love.
This workshop will refine the singing voice through yogic and shamanic practices, integrating the rejuvenating power of sound and chanting, gentle yoga and mindfulness. Free from conditioning, the voice soars, listens, receives, and releases healing frequencies and songs—the body lovingly coaxed to release tension, open the breath, and experience openness and radiance.
Through the guidance of these exceptional teachers, you will develop your spiritual practice of the yoga of the voice and gain a repertoire of chants to use in your sessions.
Ancient sound and voice healing practices will be offered daily at sunrise.
This workshop is for musicians, spiritual seekers, sound and music healers, music therapists, psychotherapists, yoga teachers, wellness practitioners, and singers.
CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO AN INTERVIEW with Silvia Nakkach and Tami Simon (Sounds True).
"…Her talent makes for music that at times recalls the ‘mystical minimalism’ of modern composers like Arvo Part, at other times ranges from Latin and Indian sonorities, but always feels ambitious… and could probably hold a tough New York club audience spellbound." ~ Jon Spayde, UTNE READER
"Nakkach is a master teacher that brings the discipline of a classicist and the poetic imagination of the indigenous wisdom to her unique approach, which challenge students to sing and create music beyond cultural boundaries, incorporating profound changes into their lives." ~ Bonnie Lowen, Ph.D, Music Professor, student of the Vox Mundi Programs.
