ACTIVATE the BODY & SOUL in YOUR VOICE
A SIX WEEK COURSE with AMY THIESSEN
BEGINS MAY 31st
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

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
