Do you desire to play, sing, and pray while igniting and fine tuning your inner songstress/songster? Come join Lauren & Alexander for "THE LIBERATED VOICE!” weekend Playshop at HeartSource in Berkeley, CA.
We all have an innate gift of expressing through sound, but many of us may rub up against blocks either emotionally or physically when we sing. All of this can be cleared! And of course if you have broken through these barriers and just LOVE singing, we would LOVE you to join us and hold the space for other people navigating and coming into their voice.
Together, Lauren & Alexander hold a joyous space to deepen your understanding of both how the voice works on a mechanical level and the energetic blocks that may keep you from fully expressing. The intention of this weekend is to give you an experience of your capacity to freely express through singing. You’ll receive tools, exercises, emotional & spiritual coaching for opening to your authentic voice.
Saturday will be devoted to creating a safe environment for us to singing into, to share of our hearts and begin the process of putting down the blocks and armor that keeps us feeling constricted around our voice. This will include groups singing, playful embodiment exercises, Chi Gong and vocal pedagogy teachings, as well as time to share and be held in your personal experiences.
Sunday will be a deeper diver and limited to only 6 participants. The day will be dedicated to personal coaching aimed at supporting transformation of personal beliefs about your voice while giving you practical tools to liberate your authentic expression.
Pricing structure for the Playshop:
Saturday: $110 - $220 Sliding scale
Saturday + Sunday : $360 - $470 Sliding scale

Alexander brings his 15 years of operatic study to share with you, skillfully weaving in his playfulness and precision to support you in expanding your awareness of the pedagogy, or science of singing. Alexander loves to watch people awaken to the power and beauty of their voices with his easy to learn exercises and enthusiastic coaching. Alexander also brings with him the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, a cross-cultural shamanic lineage from Peru. Initiated in the art of altar tending, he weaves into the room the unseen forces of creation to support us in the profound work of liberating our voices, shedding off the layers of fear and shame, and remembering the joy of singing.
