Sing…& Be Sung is a journey into deep listening, the body-heart-mind connection of the voice, and empowered expression through multicultural practices and experimental vocal sound. The essence of the Voice Journey® approach is based in a delicate balance of cultivating awareness of the instrument of the voice and surrendering to the flow of creativity that runs powerfully through us when we can truly “get out of the way.” Joining in with ancient echoes of sacred sounds and treading into the mysterious unknown of improvisation, we are led by our voices into the timeless and universal experience of vibration within and around us!
