ABOUT THE TEACHER:
Singing has taught me let go, to heal and feel my way through to express myself in my life.  Over the years I have come to know this profound relationship of spirit and matter and heaven and earth that the voice offers us, if we are willing to explore it.  “The Sound that Grounds is the Ground that Sounds”As well as the experience of joy and beauty our voice brings, our voices are a reflection of our connection to Self and point the way to ‘how we do one thing we do everything’.  My voice has been my guide and dear friend to knowing myself to my core and re-turning back to my own ‘Sound of Being’.

My intention for you is to re-discover the beauty and joy of your voice and to weave this in and through your life.  ‘I sing you to me.’  I invite you to sing as though everyone is listening and to live with enjoyment and expression from the deep well of your heart.  If you can speak you can sing and if you have a desire to feel the freedom of singing and let go then this workshop is for you.   There is no experience necessary to participate, everyone can sing and everyone has a beautiful voice.

From ‘Sound of Being’ participants:

“Anna with all my heart I am so grateful for your ability to allow space, with no need to fill it with much  doing-ness.  Thank-you from the bottom of my heart for the unmatched treasure that this is.  All that can finally unravel because of this space and attention.  Thank-you.  YES.

Your spot on intuition that is like a wash of clean energy through the entire room, yes like the bells you ring to penetrate into the heart of what is most needed in any moment.  It is equally beautiful and freeing to witness as it is to experience.

The manner in which you inform us by experience and example that everything in life and spirit is coming through the voice and the vast amount of help that that is in my life.” Rae

“What I experienced with Anna’s ‘The Sound of Being’ workshop was a very peaceful and clear state of mind, but at the same time I felt very alive.” Sheila

Singing is a life lesson
During which all that is delusional
Is gently revealed 
to the student
who seeing it 
remembers to breath
aaahhh

If you would like to sign up for my daily ‘Now & Zen’ meditations please email me and I will be happy to add you to the list!

Here is an example of a meditation…

 

Feel your breath moving in and out of your body

How are you feeling today?

What do you notice in your body? Sensations, feelings?

Say to yourself “I acknowledge a sensation of…” or, “I acknowledge a feeling in my…”

until you have scanned yourself head to toe

 

I SEE YOU AND I HEAR YOU

I SEE YOU AND I HEAR YOU

Take 10 breaths into your heart with these words

 

I SEE YOU AND I HEAR YOU (YOUR NAME)

 

Now on your exhale begin to quietly moan and hum

Gentle releases of a stroking sound into your body

Like you are soothing a baby with sound

 

Feel your vibration go into your body with the words

I SEE YOU AND I HEAR YOU

 

Breath and vibration create motion and movement.

They contact the fluid/water in your body and help

to move energy

 

Where you seen as a child?

Now’s your chance :o )

I see you and I hear you…

 

In light,

Anna
