In Person in Berkeley, CA | March 28, 2024, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm, Pacific Time


Since ancient times, music has been used to connect us to our internal world and to help us explore different parts of ourselves. We would like to invite you to a unique opportunity to celebrate the connection between sounds, voice, silence, music and our inner experience. 

In this workshop we will explore your essential self through mindfulness and the soul connecting quality of music. No musical ability is necessary. You can be tone deaf! Music has the capacity to touch us very deeply, evoke our feelings, move our bodies and inspire our spirits.   

We are born with an innate sense of love, personal mission, natural self-expression, authenticity and grace that often becomes compromised through the inevitable hurts and disappointments that wound us, and around which we tend to contract away from our essence. This workshop is designed to help you reconnect with what is deepest in you, the music of your soul, the richness of your own song that is longing to be sung.  You will be supported in embodying your own uniqueness in a safe, gentle and music filled environment where you can rediscover yourself in connection with others. 

In this workshop we will use world music to sing, chant, meditate and study the different experiences that music evokes in us. 

  • Allow music to begin the process of healing the wounds which separated you from yourself and yourself from others 

  • Connect with others from a place of authenticity and celebration through music 

  • Participate in music that will evoke your compassion for self others 

  • Use traditional music from different parts of the world and modern exercises to bring our attention inward.  

  • Use music as a tool for transformation and growth.
