Join a Sound Healing group session in Chicago!

Your voice is a powerful tool for cultivating radiant health, abundant power, and focused energy.

The fabric of the world itself is comprised of sonic vibration - from nature to the cells in your body to the words you say to the thoughts in your mind. Creating specific intentional sound, can help you uncover your authentic voice and connect with your ability to create, change and direct the flow of your own life.

``Kirtan`` is a word that describes when a group of us join together to sing, chant, play and listen, orienting around ancient mantras and contemporary melodies. I facilitate Kirtan events and Voice & Mantra workshops in and around Chicago.

Find Your Voice with Private Voice & Mantra Coaching

Together, we will explore the therapeutic benefits of vocal techniques from classical Indian music, Sanskrit mantra (repeated words or phrases with specific vibrational properties), yogic pranayama (breathing exercises) and guided meditation.

Practical applications include:

  • Improved singing, speaking, and listening skills
  • Relief from physical, mental and emotional stress
  • Confidence in public speaking & presenting
  • Awareness of your energy levels
  • Mental focus
  • Self-esteem & personal power
  • Release of creative blocks
  • Healthy breathing habits
  • Vibrational healing
  • Fun, play, creative expression!

No previous music, singing, or meditation experience needed - just an open mind and willingness to explore the potential of your own voice.

Beginning harmonium lessons are also available if you'd like to learn how to accompany your chants on this traditional Indian instrument.

What is Sound Healing: Voice & Mantra?

Voice & Mantra sessions will help you find your authentic voice, build confidence, clear energy, and tap a deep well of inner resources. This can involve breathing techniques, mantra, meditation, singing and/or vocalizing and can be done as an individual session, integrated into a bodywork session or in a class setting.

Listen to this recording of an original arrangement of the mantra Om Nama Shivaya, which was (and is) helpful to me in times of intense transition, when I need to let go of something that is not longer useful, to make space for what I desire.
