Ancient tradition and modern experts agree that past traumas and negative cultural conditioning in early life are stored in the fifth chakra (also known as the throat chakra). Often, stuck energy in this area presents as an inability to express oneself comfortably and easily through speech, song, and vocalization. Freeing the voice is an important and enjoyable key to transforming trauma and facilitating the flow of energy through this important center of expression.
Gathering in a stunning Topanga location, you are invited to a full-day immersion into joyous sounding, singing, movement, and meditation. We will engage in both fun and contemplative body, mind, and spirit practices intended to create flow, release tension and holding, allowing for greater freedom in this most important chakra.
You will emerge with a greater understanding of your personal energetic blocks and practical tools to access and support your voice.
