Is EMBODIED VOICE For YOU?
Do you feel stuck in your expression?
Perhaps there’s a voice inside that longs to be expressed but feels vague or unreachable. Or maybe you find that when the time comes to speak up your voice get’s caught in your throat, your mind goes blank, or everything comes out jumbled & incoherent. It may even be that guilt or fear prevent you from saying the things your need to say, singing the songs your soul craves, or even simply speaking up & asking a friend for support.
What you might not know is how closely your voice is tied to your animal body. These seeming limitations are often the result of conditioning, trauma, or inexperience in connecting to the fullness of your body & voice. In other words… you aren’t failing when you can’t express yourself ~ you are encountering a place for reclamation.
As you come to inhabit your body, you in turn reclaim the power of your voice; the strength of conviction, the joy of play, the tenderness of open hearted being. This connection becomes a compass allowing you to trust yourself & express with greater freedom, flexibility, & authenticity.

"LIBERATED & INTEGRATED"
I'm a classically trained soprano but was feeling stuck in how I want to use my voice. I wanted to tap into my 'real' voice, that which is natural & not evaluated by classical standards. I also wanted to liberate my expression in other areas of my life which are critical for my professional career as a psychologist and sexologist. Amy's holistic & nonjudgmental person-centered approach is just what I needed. She helped me embody parts of myself that have not had voice before. I'm so grateful for how liberated & integrated I feel with Amy's support. I will definitely be referring clients and friends.

"TRUTH over SHOULD"
Since working with Amy I've learned how to honour the depths of who I am & practice deep listening with those areas of myself that I had been silencing. I feel more connected to my body & my inner self through the somatic work we did together which has been deeply profound and healing. Working with Amy has allowed me to express myself from a place of truth, verses a place of 'should'. This type of coaching is truly unique & has awoken areas of myself I previously did not think I could access. I'm so grateful for this journey.

Priddis, AB, June 18th, 2022
Begin a love affair with yourself, one that is intimate, raw, & sacred. This module is dedicated to creating a sacred space to meet your self & your voice(s).
Listening is a full body experience. Work with sound, vibration, & presence to experience the dimensions of body, sound, breath, & voice. In this module you will learn the practices to integrate what is felt, heard, & experienced in your journey of embodied voice.
BODIES of VOICE
Your voice reflects the layers of your physical, emotional, & mental bodies. In this module you will learn the map of your voice, the sounds that emerge, & how each body of voice will influence your resonance. The module includes; physiology of voice, vocal hygiene, nervous system influence, & an outline of the spiritual & emotional bodies of voice.
Devotion is a tether, connecting us to the infinite love, power, & acceptance that exists in this human experience. Embodied devotion creates a conduit between our deepest experiences, their expression, & reception in most sacred of spaces. In this module you will learn paths of devotion to lift the most authentic & sacred of voices within.
Re-claim the primal instincts of your voice. In this module you will learn to recognize the strategies of defence (fight/flight/freeze/fawn) & re-orient to them for greater sovereignty, self compassion, & freedom. Re-discover the energizing forces of play & pursuit.
Integrate the intelligence of your animal body & steady yourself in the revelation of your embodied voice. In this module you will begin to intelligently map your voice through your body & find steadiness in the expression of your boundaries & intentions.
Archetypes are patterns of expression that exist in the universal consciousness. What you might not realize is that as you embody these internal spaces you open the door into the experience & integration of these voices within you. In this module you will explore 8 key archetypes & delve into the healing & integration of these voices in you.
Intuition arises from the integration of instinct, awareness, & intelligence. As you inhabit the wilderness of your voice you inevitably express the fullness of who you are ~ not as a performance but as the emergence of you. In this module you will review the work of this program & forge ahead with the creativity & intuition of your sacred voice.
ALL MODULES INCLUDE A COMBINATION OF SOMATIC, TONING, SINGING, PRACTICAL & LISTENING PRACTICES.

REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR VOICE FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Where do personal sessions take place?Sessions take place online or in person. When you book your appointment here, you will receive a zoom link for our session. I am based between Calgary and Bali, as well as tour internationally. If we are in the same city I would love to work together in person!
Where are do your group programs take place?Group programs will most often occur in Canada or Bali, with some international programs. ONLINE programs are aviaable to anyone anywhere! These provide a great opportunity to study together and usually coincide with group and indiviudal coaching online.
What can I expect in personal coaching?Personal coaching is designed around you. My job is to come to understand your values, worldview, and what makes your voice you. Every client is unique. I work with you to find the best methods for clarifying, strengthening, and expressing your voice in relationship to your goals. Methods may include (but are not limited to) - Somatic Experiencing - Mindfulness proactices - Active Listening - Effective Inquiry - Sing/ Chanting - Speaking practices - Vocal techniques - Narrative work - Archetype work - Movement - Creative Expression - Communication skills
Are you a singing teacher? Public speaking teacher?Yes & no. I help clients navigate their voice in a holistic method that includes vocal technique and is anchored in creating synergies between one's thinking, emotions, and body sensations. When an individual is anchored in these components their expression becomes clear and resonate. By utilizing the whole system in communication & expression client's find more dexterity in their voice, and a greater ability to express themseves whether in speaking or song. If you are drawn to voice in singing, we will work with song and chant. If you are more intereted in public speaking or communciaiton skills we will work towards your goals. Sessions are designed around your unique needs and interests.
Do I have to sing?Only if you want to! Singing and toning can help bring more deterity to your voice, relax the voice, and offer insight into more embodied conneciton.That said, there are many exercises and methods aroudn teh speaking voice that we can work with if that is your preference. Together we work with practices that meet you where you are and respect the needs of you and your voice.
I feel like I'm walking on egg shells with _____________ can you help?Yes! The feeling that we are unable to express ourselves in a relationhsip can be very challenging. Together we will work to uncover the truth of your feelings/ needs/ etc, and how to communciate those apporopriately, whether that be verbal, or through action. There is no 'right way' each scenerio is met on a case by case basis. My goal is to ensure we honour your wolrdview and authenticity so that when you begin to communciate yourself more readily it stems from a place of integrity & alignement.
Why do you use the term 'Resonance' so often?When 2 things resonate it means that they vibrate at the same frequency, this gives the combination greater power or energy. It is my philosophy that when are body, our mind, and our emotions resonate together we have greater impact with our communciation & expression. Resonance, as I use the term, refers to our ability to brings these forces together so that we communciate from a place of truth and clarity.
Do you help with communciation in relationships?Yes! Absolutley! Communciation in those relationships that are closest to us are often the most difficult. Together we will help clarify your thinking, find effective methods of expression, and ultimately build the capacity to both speak & listen from a grounded and centered place.
Is this going to be 'woo woo'?Ha ha ha... it might seem that way at times, but no, this is not woo woo The work I do draws from studies in philosophy of mind, business, years in yogic training and facilitation, studies in psychology, training in coaching, and a intense curiosity of self that has taken me thorugh various eastern and western studies. The intention is to meet you where you are, whether they work in a more cirtical linear thinking style, or froma more feeling based place. I will challenge you to expand outside your norm in order to gain new perspective in your ability to communciate but always with respect to your worldview.
Do you have scholorships?Yes. I realize that the cost of coaching can be a hindrance to those that sometimes need it most. It is important to me that my clients are engaged and demonstrate that they value this work - something that payment provides. I take up to three sessions/ month on a 'pay what you can' basis, for those that demonstrate a commited desire to learn and value coaching through their means. Together, we decide on a figure that demonstrates value, while fully considering the client's financial situation. If you are interested in applying for this scholorship please email here
A FEW MORE TESTIMONIALS...
"COMPASSION FOR MYSELF"
I have always struggled with using my voice. From speaking up, to asking for what I want, to being an effective communicator. The biggest thing that I've taken away from the program is more compassion for myself. Permission to be exactly where I'm at and more gentleness towards myself when I am not where I want to be. I've found more freedom in my voice and have found different places to sing from which has been so much fun! I really wish this program could have gone on forever and I look forward to joining it again in the future! I can't recommend Amy enough if you're looking for a caring, kind, supportive environment to explore your voice, filled with laughs (and tears).
