Embody and express your signature sound

Facilitator: Chloe Goodchild

Your sovereign voice is your unique DNA signature sound, deeper than the reactive voice of your personality. Your sovereign voice unlocks the forgotten or lost songs and stories of childhood, reveals the vibrant music of longing and belonging drawing you home to the source of sound itself, the stillness within. Your sovereign voice reveals your spoken, sung and silent capacities to feel connected and at home in the world, to express yourself freely, to be heard, to love and to be loved.

Early Bird places have sold out – standard priced places are now available.

A Language of Conscious and Compassionate Communication

Both scientists and musicians agree that every particle of matter, every phenomenon we experience, is a form of vibration. There is no form of expression more personal, more tied to our identities, than our voice, as unique as your DNA or fingerprint. It can express the vast spectrum of human feeling from the density of despair, to the lament of unrequited love, the passions of the soul, the mystical longing for union, and the joyous affirmation of Life itself.

Now is the time to activate the vibration, energy and frequencies of your sovereign voice, to discover your innate and intuitive capacities to express your whole self openly and effortlessly. Your sovereign voice is a super-power of self-confidence, creativity, wisdom and sonic activism. It is the voice of your soul. Come and explore a whole new language of conscious and compassionate communication, deep inside you, a wisdom of oneness, older and deeper than the polarity of all conflict. This inner music awakens your heart and activates the desire to spontaneously express the moods, modes and energies of Love. Your sovereign voice is the messenger of unconditional loving presence. This liberates you – once and for all – from inhibiting past narratives & conditioning. Your sovereign voice releases you to hear and to respond to yourself anew, and afresh. Enjoy Chloë Goodchild’s playful, empowering and sonorous exercises, to embody and express your True Self.

With shared intention, intuition and insight you will restore and remember your “I AM” presence – enhanced by meditative mantras, love songs, multi-part harmonies, love poetry and improvisation.

The Vocal Practices

The Naked Voice teachings are rooted in the practice of non-judgemental listening. They include ancient and contemporary recitation, mantras, devotional chant, love songs, prayer, poetry (spoken song), sound energy movement, improvisation and spontaneous utterance, sonic modes, chakra sounds, the Seven Sounds of Love, Octave of Consciousness. The vocal practices take place in pairs, triads and the group as a whole. A direct experience of unconditional loving presence evolves as you learn to let go, release inhibition, shame and blame, instilling self-worth, forgiveness and gratitude. Your healing voice has the power to dissolve isolation, to transform conflict, to harmonise cultural difference, ignite compassion, and to restore coherence personally and collectively. Loving presence plays an essential role throughout the retreat.

As friendships strengthen throughout the retreat, you find yourself diving deeper into the secret depths and songlines of your soul, and your own sound wisdom. Your authentic voice is your most intimate friend. It is the mouthpiece of your soul’s deepest longing to return Home to the source of your true Self.

"We are participating in a birthing process of a newly evolving world. As we prepare for a greater shift in humanity's collective destiny we must courageously stay awake to the responsibility that is our shared song."
