  • What’s in a Voice? An Authentic Voice Exploration with Mary Elizabeth Wheeler

    What’s in a voice? The whole world. Our whole life - all of who we are. This workshop offers another dimension of listening and access to creativity for the CircleSinging community and beyond. We will have the opportunity to sing together as a group and individually. All levels of experience are welcome, regardless of musical ability or training. We sing the human experience, unfettered by criticism or judgment. PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED - SPACE LIMITED - SCROLL DOWN FOR DETAILS AUTHENTIC VOICE is a deep listening practice for the voice that wants to be heard – in this moment, now – arising from pure impulse and unfolding moment by moment, breath by breath. Learning to listen on various channels – auditory, kinesthetic (body and emotion), visual (image and spatial) – we expand our ability to “hear” ourselves. In the Authentic Voice experience, we invite volunteers to step into the circle one by one, using the vehicle of the wordless song to explore the vast territory of the unknown within us. We welcome, encourage, receive and celebrate each other as we connect deeply to the creative source through our own humanity. Singing in the presence of a community of witnesses can help us reclaim the power of our authentic voice and change the way we listen to ourselves and others – with empathy, trust and respect. Mary Elizabeth Wheeler is an improvisational vocal and performance artist, songwriter, song leader, and teacher with 30 years’ experience in Authentic Voice. Co-creator of the SpiritSong® process, the SpiritSong Institute and the “Mystic Soul” CD, she is the founder and director of Indigo River, a coaching, consulting and training organization dedicated to bringing the authentic voice to life. Mary Elizabeth has taught nationally and conducts a private practice in Cambridge and Arlington, MA, helping people access the power of the embodied voice for self-expression, creativity, healing and transformation. A practitioner of improvisational theater for over 25 years, Mary Elizabeth is a member of True Story Theater, an Arlington-based nonprofit theater ensemble that uses Playback Theatre for community building and social healing through the arts.
