With Odeya Nini
The voice is an instrument that radiates from the soul, resonates in the body, and is pure breath and touch. Harnessing the energy of the voice is a strength that is felt deep within ourselves and heard loudly outside of ourselves. Resonance is the act of reciprocating sound and creating vibration, an ability we all have with our voice.
This two-day workshop is dedicated to sensing the voice, strengthening the relationship with our vocal instruments, and realizing the healing effects we have on ourselves and others when we use our voice with intention and love. We will explore sound as touch, and practice exercises that clear mental and physical expression, develop the imagination, and invite awareness and meditation. No prior experience necessary.
Single Day option available for Saturday, February 15.
This workshop includes FREE admission to a Valentine's weekend special featuring Evening for the Senses: Ambrosial Dinner & Voice Bath on Friday, February 14 from 6–9pm; and A Solo Voice: Evening of Performance by Odeya Nini Saturday, February 15 from 8–9pm.

Our Community Ethos
During all Earthdance workshops and jams, participants contribute 1–2 shifts (typically Meal Cleans) and participate in a Final House Clean on Sunday. This is to enable a process of collective care for the space, where participants and staff work side-by-side to establish a shared sense of home. If, for whatever reason, you are not able to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
