 from SONG OF ONE live online workshop  for Evolver learning labs  Intoduction to Sound Therapy with Alexandre Tannous

Guest: Dana Gae Hanchard  

For our fifth session, Alexandre's guest will be the vocal artist and composer Dana Gae Hanchard. Dana will present "Song Of One," a fundamental practice in grounding, unifying and resonating life force energy with increased awareness and focused intention through singing. "Healthy singing belongs to no category, style, or culture of singing. It comes from a body integrated with mind and spirit. A healthy voice is the voice of one who can express from one’s heart freely.  

"Song Of One" encourages you to explore a meditative singing practice and will give you techniques to bring about greater freedom, ease and vitality in the body and voice. You will find improvement in your musical and rhythmic skills by learning songs and movements designed to bring you into greater harmony within yourself and the environment." 

Dana will offer instruction in:  

Anchoring yourself in the cosmos through the breath  
Training the release of the body-mind in order to allow full vibratory resonance in the voice and response in the "body bell"  
Singing with better balance and poise, increased support, greater dynamic range and musicality  
Singing to the smile behind the eyes and into all cells; this activates the pituitary gland and also the soft palate "lift" necessary for fuller release and vibratory resonance  
New songs that will make you feel more life energy, songs you will remember for a long time to help lift you along the way
