Are you Hesitant of Your Voice?

Afraid of the sounds within you or how others might hear you?

Concerned that this power you feel inside of you may never be fully expressed?

Worried that you need to sound pretty, hit the right notes, or fit some 'acceptable' social standard?

Concerned that your voice isn't enough?

What if YOUR VOICE Could EXPRESS All of YOU?

the SACRED, the PRIMAL, the SENSUAL, the RATIONAL, the SOULFUL, the PLAYFUL, the POWERFUL, & the INNOCENT

I want 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 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 is Embodied Voice different from singing lessons?


In embodied voice we will use some vocal techniques & skills dervied from voice lessons. But, there is so much more involved. ~ Sound science & healing ~ Devotion as a means of self acceptance & altruism. ~ Contemplation & Somatic Techniques. ~ Emotional regulation. This is unlike singing lessons primarily because we are less concerned with performace & more concerned with establishing a deep & integrative relationship between you & your voice.




Why would I choose BUNDLE over BASIC?


The Embodied BASIC will give you plenty of material to work through & engage. It's a good package & I've had great success with similiar programs. The Embodied BUNDLE is a more direct & expediated way to create change & understanding in your voice. The 3 months of coaching allows you take concepts explored in the program & integrate them into real shifts in your expression in life, relationships, & creativity.




I want to do the BUNDLE but when I look at the 1:1 coaching packages I realize I'm interested in all 3 types. What do I do?


You are not alone! When we work together I am happy to draw from all three programs to best suit your needs ~ Embodied Voice, Connected Communicaiton, & Evolved Expression. After the BUNDLE is purchased you will fill out thorough intake package & we will do a short 20 min chat to get to know eachother. This way we can ensure the coaching program is a fit for you.




What types of topics will we discuss/experience in the program?


Here are some of the topics we will be exploring; ~ Embodiment & Somatic techniques ~ Sound science & healing ~ Psychology of devotion ~ Mantra & Song (both spiritual & contemporary) ~ Vocal Hygiene ~ The Voices within

Of course! There is always the challenge of time zones ~ you are welcome wherever you are. * Please note if there is significant interest (5+people) who would prefer a 9am MST (4pm London time) connection call this will be added.

Absolutely! In fact having a multidude of different backgrounds & languages adds depth to the program. In the facebook group & in session there is opportunities to share the music that moves you.
