There’s so much to be said about the power of our voices, but nothing that I can explain will be so understood as when you experience it. Instead of explaining theory, I simply choose to tell you my story about the way I relate to my voice and how I got ontothe path of working with the voice as an instrument of transformation and healing.
I sing as long as I can remember. As an only child I experimented with my voice to entertain myself while playing and drawing and I gave daily concerts for my neighbors, singing to them from the balcony, four stories high in Alfama, which was like a religious act to me. It meant bringing happiness and joy to people and to myself.
Singing was in fact such a must that teachers in school tried to quiet me by letting me sing all I had to sing at the start of the day, in an attempt to make me not disturb the rest of the class. It helped very little :)
Music elevates us. It’s a divine comfort and brings up memories of our life’s, connect us to others and to ourselves. To me the voice mirrors the soul. I can relate my sound to all aspects of my personality.
The responses of listeners to my concerts made me aware that there is so much more to the voice than just the beauty of song. Many people told me how my voice touched them, how they feel not only emotional, but also elevated and connected to angels and the love that is present beyond our everyday perception.
It took me quite some time to understand and accept that my purpose in life is to inspire people by following their hearts, to help them sing their soul and to bring beauty, grace, passion and spiritual growth through voice and singing. That is what I call ‘Singing Beyond’.
You don’t need to be able to sing or to be in tune. This workshop is for everyone with or without experience with voice, that have the wish to liberate, express better, explore. We will do relaxing exercises, breathing exercises, group toning, body movement and song and singing with intentions in small groups. We also use our voices to meditate, connect to our intuition. In the end of the workshop you should feel more open and liberated, happy and relaxed.
When I feel totally in flow with you and my intuition is clear, I will start to do an energy reading through the voice. I connect with what you are ready to show in the moment, with the experiences on earth, from this or other lives. You and I will have images and sensations while my voice mirrors whatever needs to be heard. You will have the insights you need or that you are ready to have. After a while always my voice wants to go on what I call angelic vibrations, a place of love, beauty, light and cleansing. While the energy refines, you connect to your spiritual side or true essence and pure origin, and I sing your song. A unique personal song that is there for you in the moment. This personal song will keep you in contact with this experience and many changes can be observed, if you’re open to receive. I will record, cut and send the personal song for you, afterwards, by email or postmail. You can combine this with a personal mandala that I can make for you and send to you later, by post.
We can use our voice not only to express, liberate and heal ourselves, but also to direct our healing voice to others.
During the training, you will experience how much we can offer each other through sounding and singing, while tuning into other person’s issues.
What to expect? Through daily subjects, and your personal intention, we will guide you in discovering your unique voice.
The subjects are acceptance, longing, hope & faith, letting go & surrendering and love.
During this profound process, you will probably contact hidden emotions and unconscious beliefs.
By accepting and expressing matters that you usually rather avoid, will lead you to experience more space, playfulness, joy and love: liberation.
The daily morning sessions will include guided meditation, silence, sharing with the talkingstick, bodywork, breathing excercises, (mantra)singing, singing and sounding in the circle, in couples and individually, sounding your name, lament singing, systemic work, rituals and giving and receiving sound baths and voice healings.
There is plenty of space for individual attention in a safe setting and loving atmosphere.
If you are not able to be present in an individual session or if you want to offer this to other person, it is possible to do the personal song and mandala even so.
In that case, you will have to let me know some things about the person by writing down some information and send me a picture.
Please contact for further information.
