Are you yearning to feel greater comfort in your body or greater freedom in opening and using your voice?

So many of us have had things happen in the journey of our lives that made us feel like we diidn't have the means or the right to speak, to express, to give voice and caused us to lose touch with a sense of ease, safety, and joy in our bodies.

If this resonates with you, we invite you to a very special workshop On Saturday September 21. Professional voice artist, sound healer and healing arts practitioner Susan DuMett and professional dancer, transformative yoga teacher and healing movement expert Vanessa Skantze invite you to a very special transformative workshop: Unleash the Siren: Liberate Your Voice and Body

Together, they have created a gentle yet visceral approach to liberating the voice and the body. Their practice and process is designed to simultaneously validate your unique experience of disconnect/trauma, and contribute tools for discovering creative expression and directly catalyzing deep healing.

From their own personal experience, and from working with hundreds of clients and students over the years, Vanessa and Susan understand that disruptive and traumatic events of life often cause a fragmentation within—between heart and mind, body and soul. This fragmentation can cause us to lose connection with the core of ourselves, which can result in disconnect from our bodies and our authentic voice.

In Unleash the Siren, Vanessa and Susan lead an authentic exploration, honoring without judgment what may be held and hidden in your cells and bones. The work is intentional, intuitive, compassionate -- and beckons a freedom to express what in many cases you may not yet find words for. As you explore intuitive sounding and movement, your body “remembers” the truth of who you are and opens you to new perspectives. You experience energetic and emotional release, a greater understanding and integration of self, a calling forth of personal and collective power, and the creating of space for greater joy, clarity, and creative expression. By the end of the workshop you’ll feel more empowered in your body and confident in your own true voice.

When: September 21, 11 am – 4 pm

Where: Madrona Mind Body Institute, 200 Battery Way E, Port Townsend, WA 98268

Exchange: $75 per person; For those in financial challenge, bring a friend special: 2 for $50
