DO YOU FEEL HELD BACK FROM YOUR VOICE?
Afraid of the sounds within you or how others might hear you?
Feeling a sense there is a voice inside you that wants to come out?
Worried that you need to sound pretty, hit the right notes, or fit some 'acceptable' social standard?
Unsure how to stay connected to & express your truth?
Concerned that your voice isn't enough?
What if Your Voice EXPRESSED All of YOU?
the SACRED, the PRIMAL, the SENSUAL, the RATIONAL, the SOULFUL, the PLAYFUL, the POWERFUL, & the INNOCENT
My vision is to live in a world where each of us is re-united with the power of our body & fullness of our voice. To transmute the pains of being silenced, dismissed, or unheard into a revelation of self understanding, unbridled expression, & profound listening. I want us to unapologetically express the fullness of who we are, to rise together in shared humanity, & to realize the sacred nature of this life & our embodied voice.
~ Amy Thiessen
What is an EMBODIED VOICE?
Embodied Voice is the expression of all of you. It is the re-discovery & reclamation of your body, your soul, your experiences, & your ability to transmute it all through sound & voice.
When our voice is embodied we discover an anchor for our expression. A deeply personal & resonant sanctuary where we come to listen, express, & truly be heard.
Whether you want more dynamic expression, to sing or speak with greater authenticity, or to heal your relationship to your voice this 6 week program will open portals into new understanding & multi-layered expressions of your voice.
I THOUGHT I'D BE LEARNING HOW TO SING BUT I LEARNED SO MUCH MORE!
Amy provided an atmosphere that was so safe and easy to open up and to share, that growth was imminent. The information, and knowledge that she shared was invaluable and applicable to everyday life. This was all very, very empowering .
I am very grateful that I received Amy's message about her course when I did. She has given me a gift that will inevitably change my life
How does the Embodied Voice Program Work?
The EMBODIED VOICE program is intentionally designed to gradually open & integrate layers of body & voice connection. By honouring & gently expanding receptivity in the nervous system participants have the opportunity to unveil patterns that limit their vocal expression & activate new layers of possibility in their body & voice.
