Our next Vocal Toning for Health, Happiness and Harmony workshop is being held over two four hour Sunday afternoon sessions – in Surry Hills – on the 14th and 21st of June 2015.
If you are looking to find, befriend and free your true voice, then ‘Toning for Health, and Wellbeing’ may be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Vocal Toning is an opportunity to develop a healthier and happier relationship with your own voice and with the voices of others in your life. When toning we principally use our voice to produce extended vowel sounds, outside the constraints of words, pitch and rhythm.
In this workshop We will explore together through vocal sound, how our voices can consciously be engaged as powerful instruments of love, healing and harmony.
Just as Yoga relaxes and frees up the body, vocal toning relaxes and frees up the voice.
Each section of the workshop includes explanatory information which supports a range of experiential group activities including using the voice, for toning , and practising deep listening sound awareness tasks.
Over the course of two interactive 4 hour , sessions we will explore and experience the fundamentals of Vocal Toning for meditation, health and harmony. As the sessions progress you will take part in and experience some more advanced voice and toning techniques. You will leave the workshop with a variety of voice-based meditative techniques for relaxation and self-healing.
Over the two afternoons , each of us will contribute to and be the recipient of conscious healing sound from other course participants.
In addition to learning voice and sound techniques for health and meditation, you will:
Develop a richer, healthier and happier relationship with your own voice
Become more conscious of your own voice and sound
Open and expand your capacity to speak from the heart, with more warmth, expressiveness and authenticity
Find yourself listening to and understanding others and your environment with more depth, compassion and understanding

Have available a range of easy vocal techniques which you can use anywhere to shift your mood, raise your level of alertness, or to release stress

Vocal Toning is the elongation of a sound using the breath and voice no matter the quality or pitch of the sound. Unlike singing and speaking, vocal toning frees us of judgment or assessment of the sound, instead focusing our attention on the quality of our intention. When toning we principally use our voice to produce extended vowel sounds, outside the constraints of words, pitch and rhythm. Toning works to bridge the gap between speaking and singing, releasing both the intellectual and the performance associations we tend to hold with the voice.
Vocal toning isn’t reliant on any particular religious or spiritual beliefs, though it does draw upon ancient wisdom regarding sound and healing across cultures and sacred texts.
