'SONG OF THE SOUL' workshop with Ayla Schafer
Each one of us carries our unique soul voice, a powerful and beautiful tool of expression gifted to us to connect and communicate with life. The Song of our soul is the intimate expression of our true nature, the spontaneous sound of our spirit. To truly sing is a journey of remembering, getting out of the mind, and trusting in ourselves as we surrender to the spirit of sound in us.
Our voice is the only instrument created by God, it is our connection to the truth of our being and to the prayer that we carry. We were born to sing.
This workshop is held as a ceremonial journey of deep discovery; unveiling our naked and untamed voice and awakening the power and free expression of our Souls song. We do not 'learn to sing', instead we unlearn and release the judgement, fears and blockages that hold us back from something that is our nature, so that we are able to get out of the way and 'be sung' as the hollow flute.
The journey is held by the guidance and teachings of ancient sacred ways and Ritual that remind us what it truly means to sing; together we will remember how to use song as tribal people have done for millennia, to connect to the source and speak with the spirit of life, to celebrate, to pray and to give flight to our intentions and dreams, so that we can step deeper into our soul purpose in this life.
Our voice brings us immediately into connection with ourselves, each other and the profundity of the present moment. We will be weaving between sound and silence, resting in the stillness from where our sound comes from; in doing so we return to the source of Life itself. This is a Journey of coming home to ourselves, our body is our portal, our Voice is our tool, our silence is our home.
'The purpose of music is for you to become who you are, to bring what is inside of you into play, to spin a vibrating thread through you into the world, to spark life...'
This workshop is open for all those who feel the call to sing. Absolutely no experience necessary
