Diane Cluck will lead a workshop focusing on singing as deep self-care and embodied expression. This inclusive workshop is created with both new/never-before singers and experienced vocalists in mind. Diane guides participants through a series of bija mantras–seed sounds for warming up and connecting with the voice as it inhabits and influences the body. There will be an exploration of personal mythology as a means of discovering and developing one’s own ‘vocal signature’–an opportunity to delve into and revel in the natural qualities of one’s unique voice in an encouraging environment. Group and individual improvisation leads to spontaneous song-making. Tools shared are flexible, and with the intention that empowered singers help create healthy communities. Open to twelve participants.
