About This Event
Your naked voice is your authentic voice. It is the muscle and mouthpiece of your heart. Once heard, it moves through you like a river. Its resonance touches a wisdom inside you, opens a gateway into the landscape of your soul. Your naked voice will awaken new dimensions of your consciousness, beyond ‘right and wrong’ where your personal and universal spirit can meet as one unified sound.
The Naked Voice Wisdom School provides a multi-faceted and supportive listening environment where you will access, embody and express the voice of your truth through a discovery of the seamless connection between your spoken and sung voice, as one undivided wholeness. Through the practice of sound with energy movement, sacred sonic codes, self-inquiry and spontaneous expression inspired by your poetic imagination, you will access your naked voice in ways you never imagined possible – and all sourced from the music of silence. This empowering vocal journey enables you to integrate your highest aspirations with your grounded purpose on earth, as you come home to yourself through your sound, again and again, discovering what it is to be fully inside your own skin.
Your naked voice is also a unique bridge between you and the rest of the world. Naked Voice Wisdom explores vocal sound as a transformative catalyst for the evolution of conscious loving relationships. Once fully embodied, your unique sound dissolves alienation and loneliness, transforms depression into longing and belonging, navigates conflict co-creatively, restores coherence, harmonizes cultural differences, ignites the compassionate heart, and inspires courageous outcomes.
Once found, your true voice becomes a shining torch that unearths shadow, melting the frozen music of personal history. Your natural sound and the singing melodies of your soul, bypass the rational mind, and activate a quality of surrender or kenosis (letting go) that releases self-limiting beliefs, possessive and narcissistic habits of mind. As self-confidence returns, self-remembrance arises from within, re-uniting you with your sovereign Self. The Naked Voice is an all-inclusive wisdom tree that invites you into a direct experience of unconditional loving presence. You will find yourself in an empowering ‘singing field’ where the individual and the collective are one interconnected community. There, you will discover a resonance of Love that will revolutionize your life and the lives of those around you. This journey can no longer be ignored or silenced.

Hollyhock definitely captured my heart. The food is wonderfully balanced and full of flavour. The garden is mesmerizing and the staff is always welcoming with a smile. Accommodation was comfortable and clean. There is something enchanting about this place that is calling me back ~ Monica G
