Seminar Week: The Sensuality of Singing
Tuesday, June 2nd – Sunday, June 7th, 2020
An intensive self-experience week in nature, focussing on breathing, voice- and body-work, trance and rituals
Seminar Coach: Sabine Rittner
Location: Odenwald-Institut / Wald-Michelbach near Darmstadt
Singing is the most important form of self-expression. The sound of our voice – when singing or speaking – expresses our multifaceted personality. Our voice is a “sounding biography”.
This is an introductory class that addresses people who want to feel, hear, and experience their own voice and rediscover this most natural source of nourishing and healing power. It is intended as a preventative, health-promoting measure for all those whose main “working tool” is their voice. It is also aimed at people who occasionally experience breathing difficulties and vocal problems in stressful work-related situations, and who are looking for practical advice and experience to prevent permanent voice damage.
We will have enough time and space to rediscover our very own voice, which is oftentimes buried under “dirt and stress”. Through intense self-experience, we will get to know our life melody and open ourselves up for the possibility of receiving a personal power song from our most inner resources.
Using practical experience and theoretical elements, quiet withdrawal and playful organisation, contemplation and joint reflection, courage to dissociate and pleasure in surrendering, solitude and community life, closeness and displacement, expression and impression … we will continue to work on expanding our self-awareness and our physical and vocal expressiveness. The connection between body, breath, voice, mood and your overall health will be felt immediately.
On our journey, we will use: vocal- and bodywork, relaxation and sound massage, rituals and intense experiences in nature, body sound and resonance, dance and trance, rhythm and energy, songs and improvisation, chakras and meditation, sensuality and physical contact, shapes and colours, as well as fascinating voices from many cultures around the world. And silence.
Together, we will find joy again from the sensuality of singing.
