Once upon a time, when the women were birds, there was the simple understanding that to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk was to heal the world through joy. The birds remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated.
~ Terry Tempest Williams
If your voice could tell its story, what would it say? When did your voice feel most alive? Most shut down? Most empowered? Most vulnerable? How does your voice make you feel today?
As Women, our voices have often been silenced or repressed through personal or collective traumas, experiences of cultural conditioning, and gender norms that place less importance on the voices of women. Worldwide, we are seeing women rise up to reclaim their voices – speaking up, singing out, and coming together to create positive change.
In this workshop, Mila creates a safe, fun, and supportive space to playfully explore the unclaimed territories of your Voice. Using the Five Elements framework designed by Barbara McAfee, we will journey into the full spectrum of the Voice using the elements of Earth, Fire, Water, Metal, and Air. Together, we’ll use group-singing practices and playful exploration to connect more fully with our authentic voice as Women, and ultimately to our full aliveness.
This workshop is for Women and female-identified persons. Space is limited to 18 participants. It will be a communal experience, and no woman will be asked to speak or sing on her own. Bring a water bottle, a journal, and a pen or pencil. All voices are welcome, and no singing experience is required.
