Singing Journey Meditation
“Masterfully created and brilliantly performed. The flow of energy was indeed a deep, exotic, and inspiring journey. Roy's vocal creations include ethnic sounding languages channeled from his own imagination, and live looping of organic and world music inspired sounds. Not to be missed.” - James Marienthal
In-Person & Online Journeys
RELAX, RELEASE AND CONNECT
In these journeys, we'll use the voice as a tool for relaxation, healing, and deep connection with our creative, intuitive mind. You'll be guided through practices like toning, non-religious chanting, and improvisational soul singing over an improvised sound bed.
Everything is improvised, so every Journey is different
IN-PERSON Singing Journey:
Roy brings this popular online offering to life, live-looping his voice to create a moving soundscape that transforms from start to finish. Follow the journey with your voice and body. Sing, hum, chant, move, dance, or simply relax, breathe, listen.
Bring water and a yoga mat or blanket if you wish.
Fully vaccinated participants only please. Contact tracing form required. (Click here to complete the form in advance)

“Thank you so much for last night's musical experience. I got off the call feeling absolutely transported, relaxed....It was incredible medicine for my soul.” - Laurie E.
In-Person and Online!
What it Circle Singing? Circle Singing is a community singing and sounding practice, spontaneous and evolving — like a drum circle for voices.
Based on practices developed by Bobby McFerrin and his collaborators, Circle Singing is a supportive, judgment-free space to play with your voice. Leaders create songs in the moment — patterns, percussive sounds, rhythms, harmonies, melodies, recognizable words, or invented language — and teach the parts orally to the rest of the group. The parts layer together into completely original compositions, each song a unique creation, never sung before, never to be sung again.
It's a very organic, playful, community singing experience. All voices are welcome!

Vocal Meditation Practices
two-part workshop via Swallow Hill Music
Our most powerful tool for wellbeing is one we carry with us all the time — our own voice.
During this two-part workshop series, we'll use our voices to release stress, reduce anxiety, promote mental well-being, and enhance creative intuition.
We'll learn and practice toning, non-religious chanting, mantra, vocal meditation, and improvisational singing for tension release. We'll explore self-soothing and self-healing techniques using sound and vibration.
Because this is an online workshop, students will be able to explore these vocal practices from the privacy of their own home. No singing or meditation experience is necessary. All voices are welcome.
Two part series (Participants must register for both)
(Please register at least 48 hours in advance)
