This experiential, somatic Earth-awareness forest bathing meditation workshop teaches techniques to heighten awareness and experience of the vibrancy and presence of the natural world and of our own bodies and voices. Discover ways to be more fully in dialogue with the Earth while strengthening your own voice and presence, utilizing the resources of breathing meditation, forest bathing, Vocal Yoga, improvisation, and geomancy. Make intentional sound in conversation with the Earth and other creatures -- no singing  experience/skill required!
