SOL VOICE

"Only free people can make a free world. Infect the world with your light." Ben Okri

"Sol" means sun in Spanish. This workshop takes place close to the Summer Solstice which represents the height of Summer and the longest day of the year. It is an opportunity to celebrate the light; the fullness of the sun and the element of fire which represents transformation, energy and passion. This weekend is an exploration of the Agni or inner fire using the power of voice and sound, chant, mantra, movement, the Indian scale, improvisation and much more to ignite, illuminate, express and embody the deepest sound of our being. We will look at ways of embracing these qualities to release anything that is holding us back. No vocal experience required.
