Wild Mystic : Vocal Embodiment Journey with Rara Avis and Lucia Grace

A profound invitation to explore the transformative potential of music, voice, breath and movement as tools for harmonizing body, heart and mind.

Have you ever wondered what it might feel like to ride on the wings of your own voice?

Or perhaps you sing already but yearn to feel a place where your voice belongs in harmony with others?

Singing is a gateway, and the voice is perhaps the most direct path to realizing that we are never separate, never alone.

Combine that experience with the timeless and graceful movement meditation practices of yoga and qi gong. Experience and learn powerful tools that you can carry with you every day in your life's journey.

Join renowned world music pioneer Rara Avis and somatic shamaness Lucia Grace for a journey into the wild and mystical nature of the heart.

We will explore simple mindfulness tools that allow freedom from self-judgement where the voice is concerned. While bringing vitality and energy into the body through transformational embodiment practices.

Flute, guitar, didgeridoo, harmonic overtone singing, opening prayers and DJ techniques are layered together to create the backdrop for a mindful and embodied experience – inspiring ecstatic journeys in venues as intimate as a yoga studio and as sprawling as a festival setting.

"Your voice touches my heart in ways that are deep and profound… Your vulnerability and deep sharing creates and holds a safe place that inspires up to go deeper into our hearts.”
