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 M

Relax, Release, 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.

Singing Meditation Journey ONLINE:

Though participants are muted, you're encouraged to use your voice along with the guide. Because you're singing from the privacy of your own home, you can use your voice without fear of judgement. This is a powerful way to release stress, reduce anxiety and achieve a more peaceful state of being. Even if you choose not to sing, just listening along is a great way to relax.

Circle Singing

Spontaneous Song!

In-Person and Online!

What is 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!
