A one day “Embodied Voice” workshop exploring the dynamic connection between the ancestors and self.
This experiential professional body psychotherapy workshop is designed for body-psychotherapists, psychotherapists, and professionals from different therapeutic modalities who are interested to learn and explore ways of working directly with the voice in an embodied way. We will explore the particular relationships between the ancestors and present day self as an embodied reality and how it affects mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health and its relevancy in psycho-therapeutic processes.
The human voice is unique in its versatility and its ability to express feelings and intentions. It connects the inner and outer realities, conscious and unconscious, past, present and future. Our voice and its rhythms carry the sound of our memories as stored in our body.
The ancestral legacy is vast and alive within us. In times of change, challenge and crisis interacting with our personal and global ancestral legacy can support our well-being, heal and empower, give a sense of belonging and resiliency to oneself and the community.
The relations between ourselves and the ancestral narrative can give a wider context to one’s life providing a connection beyond personal experience. We will explore the affects of the dynamic connections, relations and interactions between the voices of the ancestors and self, on the well- being of individuals i.e clients and society. The ancestral voice opens a path to the spiritual and
trans-personal levels adding depth and meaning to life.
We will look into the interesting relations between past, present and future in the context of legacy, as we too will become the voices of the ancestors to future generations.
In a safe space, working in couples, small groups and individually we will use voice, movement, breath, touch, psycho-therapeutic creative processes and energy work among others to explore all
topics mentioned. What is taught in this workshop can be used in clinical setting and private practice.
