The Art of Vocal Meditation – Connecting to Source in Sound
Vocal Meditation can take a number of different forms — chanting, toning, singing, improvising. This workshop introduces vocal techniques that are extremely efficient in inducing a meditative state. Perfect for musicians wanting to deepen their awareness around their work and/or people looking to develop a meditation practice or integrate sound into an existing personal practice. These techniques serve to prime the mind, awaken the body’s listening and deepen the journey within. *No meditation or singing experience necessary.
