"It is very difficult for me to sum up my experience of working with Lauren in a simple testimonial. I went from being completely shut down in my voice and not even being able to sing the first verse of a song for my best friend without crying, to playing the uke and performing at open-mics. I have even been being asked to co-lead women's circles and other rituals because of my new-found musicality! But Lauren's teachings are about so much more than music. They are about the big, beautiful, messy, and worthwhile business of being a spirit in human form. She lovingly coaxes and artfully guides us to unfurl our wings and reclaim our voices because when we share our songs, the whole world soars!"
“... profoundly transformative ...deeply meaningful event if my life and evoked major and lasting shifts...I have finally broken the barriers to being self-loving and am much more in touch with my creativity; I am filled with overwhelming gratitude for Lauren and the magical groups she offers.” -Erin R.
"Lauren is a gifted facilitator in the sound, healing arts, and song. I came to Lauren to work on a wound with my music. After working with Lauren I have discovered more confidence and ability to channel my thoughts, emotions, and surroundings into sound. I have been touched and inspired by my work with Lauren to find rhythm and rhyme ever where I go, to start musical improv with friends and to not be afraid of it sounding perfect. The gift I have taken away is resilience and imagination within song sketching, writing, and creation."
“...I reclaimed MY powerful ancestral voice!... I reclaimed part of my soul with Lauren’s strength and compassion...” -Tamara L.
