"It was truly one of the most nourishing experiences I've ever had, expertly held and guided. This is the work that women and the world need right now" Katie

Some of us know, and some are yet to discover, the healing power of sound and voice work for personal and collective transformation. Everything has a vibrational frequency. Through working consciously with sound and intention we can shift our own frequencies, enabling stuck patterns to unravel and accessing places of power and potential that have been deeply buried in our beings. When we sound together in a group we create a morphic field of resonance where the sound waves ripple out, within, and then beyond, the group - not only healing ourselves but also affecting the wider sphere of existence.

"Sounding is the most direct way to experience our true essence and connect to our hearts."

As women many of us have experienced, whether consciously or otherwise, feeling shut down around our vocal expression. Society has imposed ideas around the “feminine” that don’t allow for the full depth and breadth of what it is to be a woman. We may have adopted ideas around certain sounds being acceptable – that we have to sound sweet, gentle and pretty to get our needs met. When we take the lid off and allow our voices to sound freely, old stories and hidden emotions can be re-written and released. We also find we are able to access a deep-rooted source of strength from within. Through therapeutic vocal exercises and guided somatic journeys, we can discover and integrate the rejected parts of ourselves, and celebrate the joy and creative expression that is our essential nature.

“Beautifully, safely held, with reverence. The structure had the shape of a ceremony over the 3 days, beautifully crafted.” Anne​
