Voice as Practice: Instrument of the Heart

December 18-20, 2020
with Meredith Monk

Garrison Institute, Garrison, NY
Stay tuned for more information about registration.

The voice, the original human instrument, is an eloquent language of the heart that delineates energy for which we don’t have words. This workshop offers an environment where voice, movement, and image intersect to create an opportunity for participants to discover their own personal richness. A basic instruction in meditation is to follow the breath. We will explore how the outbreath expands into sound, tone, and resonance and work with exercises to deepen our listening and awareness of the inspiration of our environment and voices coming through us. The playful aspect of creation and the joy of discovering our unique vocal qualities will be emphasized as a way of connecting us to the healing power of the voice. During the workshop, Meredith will also give a talk on the relationship she has crafted between her Buddhist practice and her art.
