Voice and Somatic Therapeutics
Opening the Voice of the Soul
Music, specifically through the human voice is regarded as one of the most powerful tools for emotional healing and somatic therapy. Singing in harmony with others, cultivating overtones, seed syllables and mantras correlating with the human body’s physical and energetic centers, reconnects us to our inherent birthright of emotional, mental and physical well-being.
In this interview, we will discuss the voice as a unique, powerful tool for sound therapy, the medicinal use of the human voice in healing, the purpose of singing in context of social bonds and community healing, nervous system regulation and vagus nerve stimulation through the voice and the breath, and an overview on trauma therapy and stress relief through the voice.
A few practices will be shared for unblocking and healing the relationship ones voice, unveiling the voice and cultivating pure tone for sound, speech and song therapies. We will be discussing methods of implementing effective vocal technique, with ancestral songs, eastern modalities, esoteric Taoism, and Yogic arts.
