In this workshop one learns
– how to choose, play and use the Tibetan singing bowls, and how to take care of them.
– to know, understand and feel the basic principles of the vibrations and sounds of the bowls and how to apply them in the physical and energetic body for oneself and people of one’s inner circle,
– the voice as an healing instrument for oneself.
– presence and listening actively and passively with the whole body, with all the senses,
to the bowls, nature and to the subtle sounds of what’s moving inside the body.
In the mornings the group goes to the nearby beach, or in the group-space, to awaken the voice at sunrise, surrounded by the sounds of nature, and continues with excercises with the bowls. In the afternoons the focus shifts to exercises with the voice and nature, to blend the voice with the bowls and the sounds and energies of nature. Re-discovering, re-encountering with the voice, one’s most intimate instrument, with the authentic voice of each and everyone, in relation and vibration with all there is. Everybody on its own way, with their own voice.
This workshop is an introduction to sound in close relation with personal and spiritual growth through Tibetan singing bowls, voice, nature and meditation. It’s also an opportunity, and necessity, for professionals to feel and experience the effects of these powerful instruments in themselves before applying them in their professional work.
This workshop is open to everyone who wants to explore the world of vibrations and sound. It’s not necessary to have a musical training or a good ear.

This is a different Sound Formation. One doesn’t learn “The Jacomina technique” but the participants will be stimulated to develop their own way of working from their own capacities, experiences and professional knowledge, in combination with sound. There will be new teachings of applications and integrations of the instruments with the voice, silence and new listening techniques. On the days of practice the participants investigate, experiment and create their own way of working, in the presence of the others who receive, observe and comment on each session in the group. In this “sacred” space, there’s an opportunity to open oneself, putting all the jewels and insecurities, doubts and questions on the table, mutually exchanging and supporting the process and the work of each one from the angel of experience of each participant. It’s also possible to practice with giving a “concert” or sound bath, to receive comments and suggestions.

In the Initiation Workshop and the Training one explores the voice, the most intimate instrument, mirror and ally in processes of personal and spiritual growth and to reinforce the innate health. The voice in the Body as a sacred path to the Soul. Singing only for oneself, for one’s body, heart and soul. Not to the outer world! In this work one enters from the body level, into the depths of the physical functioning of the voice, that leads to sing without effort, without tensions, re-vitalizing oneself.
One learns different ways of listening to oneself, the other and nature, to direct the vibrations of the voice to specific parts of the body which leads to an increasingly precise body awareness, the “felt anatomy”.
To unveil the true voice there’s no need for perfection, only contacting with the essence of being.
This work can produce a spectacular improvement of the voice in speaking and singing and deep personal proceses in healing on a physical and emotional level.
The introduction Workshop
– contact with the vibrations of the voice in the body
– synchronize the voice with the internal sound, in the group and with nature
– activate the external and internal ear, left and right, harmonics in the voice
– resonate with the larynx, the cervicals and the trachea, physical sensations and changes in the voice
– movement and voice
Accessible for anyone interested in exploring this new approach to song and healing. It is not necessary to have musical knowledge, a good voice, a good ear, or a sense of rhythm.
The Training will include the following themes:
– perception of the voice on different levels of consciousness,
– listening with the whole body and on an energetic level
– the ear, the larynxe and the trachea in detail
– resonance with specific parts of the skeleton
– the supporting arches of our body and our voice
– resonate with the skeleton of the other
– perception of the energy fields of oneself and the other through the voice
– a deeper contact with nature
In order to enter the Training of the Healing Voice, it is essential to have previously participated in a Initiation Workshop of The Healing Voice or in a long workshops where the group has worked with the voice. For whoever is interested in this path, with or without experience with the voice and for professionals.
