Find Your Voice - Online Mini-Retreat Day (With Cacao & Kirtan!)

About this event

DO YOU:

- Wish that you had access to a greater capacity to express, articulate, communicate or sing?

- Find that your inner voice doesn't always match what you express outwardly?

ARE YOU:

- A teacher (of any discipline), speaker, singer, vocalist, actor or just someone who in some capacity uses your voice in important situations regularly?

- Seeking a little more access to this beautiful expressive function our bodies are created to perform, but not sure how to get there?

.... This event may just be of interest to you.

This day-retreat/workshop will incorporate aspects of all the things which helped me find and more importantly - to EMBRACE - my voice:

2.30-3.30pm - Yoga & Meditation practice

Using techniques from traditional tantric hatha yoga, pranayama & meditation, I'll lead you through a complete practice which will focus on strengthening Agni (digestive fire) and creating depth in the scope the diaphragm for breathing - this will greatly aid in the breathing/vocal techniques we'll learn later.

3.30-5.30pm - FIND YOUR VOICE workshop

During this portion of the day, we'll explore the breath as a key tool for singing & self-expression, the significance of Sanskrit mantra, the physiology of the voice, as well as some self-inquiry & vocal practices to help you access your unique inner voice & ability to use it. Please note you do NOT have to have a microphone turned on (in fact it works better if you're muted) - this can be an entirely personal practice. Just make sure you are in a space which is fully comfortable enough for you to sing out loud in.

5.30-6.30pm - Hour break

6.30-8.30pm - Cacao & Kirtan session (it is possible to join for this portion of the day only, just see ticketing options)

The lovely Paula Gibson will join us for this final portion of the day, leading us through a cacao ceremony to infuse what we have learned and practiced during the day with heartfulness. This will be followed by a kirtan session (devotional singing)led by me (Jenny). These two practices combined are a beautiful way to return to the necessary ingredients required for confident, clear certainty of expression - self-compassion, love, and a trust in the sense of something beyond our awareness - the divine guidance we all have access to.

ABOUT ME:

Vocal work & singing is not something I ever exactly planned to do. I never officially took lessons (disclaimer, lol!)- I didn't even really start properly singing until I was about 15. It was then that I was literally PUT in a recording studio by a teacher I really looked up to, who clearly saw something in me that I did not - and everything kind of unfolded from there.

For this reason, I always felt like I had some 'catching up' or filling in the blanks to do. I always felt unworthy of whatever minor 'successes' I did experience with singing, as if I had no ground to stand on. I'm still not great with music theory, technical composition knowledge or even basic scales on anything but the flute - but harmony, singing in groups & creating music just touches my soul like nothing else can.

It wasn't until I started chanting mantra and doing breathwork (alongside a daily yoga practice) that something really shifted in my ability to tap into this natural inbuilt capacity to use my voice. I believe that everyone has this capacity, we're just not always given the opportunities to explore it like I was at a young age.
