Event description

Description

We usually sing songs. Folk songs, choral compositions, band songs, songs we've written.

What happens when you take the song away, but keep singing? Alone and with others?

In India they'll say that God sings through. In Shona culture, it's the Ancestors. For me, it's Nature. When we drop the song, the knowing, the form - and listen, really listen - somehow we allow Life to sing us and Life is pretty magnificent.

Vocal Improvisation is an extreme sport, for singers with a creativity that naturally reaches out beyond the form of songs, and into a wilder territory. It's for singers who can sing in tune, keep a beat, and want an adventure.

We'll play with the forms that help singers create layered sound baskets, drop deeply into the resonant body and bring out the voice in its fullness, and we'll play. Play play play.

People have said things like:

“One of the most powerful experiences of my life! I feel changed on a cellular level!” (ok it was a 4 day retreat not a weekend...)

“This workshop completely opened me up to new frontiers in sound healing. Thank you. Now I feel more confident integrating my energy healing techniques with sound and voice.”

“Briony really made us all feel at home – starting off with exercises that didn’t force me outside of my comfort zone, and a no judgement pact, really allowed me to feel comfortable with the group, which then gave me the confidence to try out some solos.”

“It was seriously fun, crazy, inspiring, opening and meditative, all at the same time.”

“Some singing teachers teach you sing with your voice. Briony teaches you to sing with your heart and sing from your soul.”

“It was deeper than an ayahuasca ceremony; I grew more than in workshops with leading psychologists, and it’s the safest I’ve ever felt in a group.”

“Being bathed in beauty. Being held in love. Being winkled out of a shell. Being birthed into a new world.”

“You made it feel like a womb. Protected, loved, nourished, warm and holding.”
