Soaring Voices
Presenter: Pamala Lewis

Discover the hidden dances in your heart and the sacred voices of your soul through this very simple yet profound practice of moving and vocal streaming. You will explore the natural connection of your breath and spontaneous sounds in your body while inviting them to lead you into movement, dance or stillness. The class ends with a group Sound Circle that allows each voice to soar together as ONE. No previous voice or dance training is necessary. You will study with Wise Masters...your Body and your Voice.
