What Is Vocal Meditation?
Vocal Meditation is a workshop created by musician Jane Lewis. She describes it as "a way in to the present moment using the voice." You will be gently guided through singing, chanting, and sounding exercises. The practice of deep listening is encouraged, as is exploring the voice beyond what we normally think of as "singing." Jane creates a safe environment where you can participate at your own comfort level. Sessions can be both calming and energizing.
Jane began offering regular Vocal Meditation sessions in Southern Ontario in 2017. Due to the pandemic,
she now offers sessions via Zoom—so you can participate from anywhere!
