Intuitive Voice Work & Sound Healing

There is a way between voice and presence where information flows.
— Hazrat Inayat Khan

Intuitive Voice Work

I support people to connect deeply with their voice, to learn ways to use it intuitively and in a way that feels good, honest and free. While I have been singing for as long as I can remember, it has been a process to allow authentic expression. As a queer woman raised within an Orthodox Jewish environment (and existing in the world), my voice was suppressed and hidden beneath social conditioning, internalized/inherited misogyny, homophobia and anti-semitism. I firmly believe that the practice of liberating the voice cannot be separated from the impacts of oppression on our bodies and souls.

As I’ve continued to devote myself to the ancient current that is voice and song, I am awed by how transformative, tender and healing it is to attune to our (literal) voices. The body knows. The voice knows. My voice, my song is born from the longing in my bones. The longing to connect with my ancestors. The longing for wholeness. The longing to be free. Singing is how I channel that longing. It is how I embody the wisdom and medicine within me. It is how I integrate and make meaning of my experience being alive.

My approach to this work is rooted in being raised in a musical family that sung harmonies together around the Shabbat table every week. It is shaped by experience praying at altars and in spiritual ceremony around the world and across traditions- chanting, healing, remembering and vibrating in community.

I am here to affirm that it is your birthright as a human being to sing and make music freely and authentically. I know it can be scary, especially for those of us whose voices have been silenced for so long. And, I am here to support you in connecting with your wholly unique voice and listening together for what needs to move for you to feel more liberated and honest in your expression.

This work is ancestrally resourced, which means that I will invite you to lean into the support of your well ancestors throughout the session.

I especially love working with folks who want to deepen into devotional aspects of music and sound for personal practice and ritual facilitation, with a speciality in Jewish devotional music.

Held in-person or via zoom.

 
Our whole being is music: our mind and our body, the nature in which we live, the nature that has made us, all that is beneath and around us, it is all music.
— Hazrat Inayat Khan

Sound Healing

Sound is a tool for transformation and a portal for inspiration, resourcing and connection with our ancestors. Everything is vibration. We can attune to vibrations and frequencies that support healing and connection with the consciousness within and all around us.  Through sound, we can awaken the memory of our inherent dignity and belonging to life. We are each instruments in the orchestra of creation.

Some benefits of intuitive sounding work may be: feelings of peace, calm, centeredness, increased self-awareness, relief of physical pain, emotional release, connection to a sense of collective consciousness, energetic balance, increased capacity and resilience to be with challenge or struggle.

My approach to this work is informed by my ongoing sound-studies and work as well what I continue to glean from my personal healing journey with chronic Lyme disease. I am inspired by and draw upon multiple spiritual traditions, healing cosmologies and modalities that all share threads of: earth reverence, mysticism, connection with benevolent spirits, guides and ancestors, attention to vibration, somatic awareness, sound as a tool for healing and communing with consciousness, ritual medicine and ceremony.

Each session is unique and intuitively guided.

Every atom confesses by its tone, ‘my sole origin is sound.’
