In this voice, in this song, we belong.
“Sound is sea: pattern lapping pattern,” wrote poet Ronald Johnson. Something inside of us is stirred alive by the sounds of nature: wind rippling waves at dusk, birds fluttering their wings on the way home to seaside cliffs, whale songs traveling through ocean for hundreds of miles. Through singing, we too can participate in this symphony, threading our bodies with other animals, the land, and the sea.
In this introductory singing workshop, vocal coach & singer-songwriter Jessica Sirena will lead us in exploring the power of our voice in tune with the rhythms of the seascape around us. Through mindful embodiment, vocal exploration exercises, and singing alongside others in a song circle, we walked away from this experience with:
a deeper appreciation for the healing capacities of singing in nature
greater confidence in using our voice for authentic self-expression
greater awareness of how our voices resonate with the sounds and acoustic textures of our ocean environment
Together, we tapped into the transformative power of music & sound, vibrating with the world around us.
