SAGE ACADEMY OF SOUND ENERGY PRESENTS:   
RE-IMAGINING THE VOICE: AN EMBODIED EXPLORATION OF DEVOTIONAL SINGING WITH BISAN TORON  
 
Our voice has the capacity to gather and reflect our many dimensions. In deepening our relationship to our voice, we begin to bridge the chasm between our emotions and what actually comes out of the mouth as expression. In imagining the voice as the muscle of the soul, we learn to maximize its freedom and our ability to resonate our note in the world.
         In this workshop we will explore what it means to sound your inner life. Through breath work and vocal exercises that are grounded in the map of the body we will delve into your voices unique colors and nuances in a atmosphere that is un-intimidating, fun and safe.
We will end with a group chanting of the Divine Names in Arabic, inspired by the Sufi tradition of Zikr. 
This workshop is ideal for beginners as well as anyone interested in deepening their relationship with voice and sound. All levels are welcome. 

BISAN TORON is a experimental world music vocalist and voice teacher. Her music is informed by a multitude of cultures and vocal traditions which she threads with musical articulations that arise from the moment. 
Born in Syria and raised in Paris and New York, Bisan studied classical voice performance at NYU and holds a masters in Ethnomusicology from the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies. She did further studies in voice and improvisation with the Roy Hart-based company, Pantheatre in Paris, France.

MEDITATION, INTENTION AND THE ZERO POINT FIELD  
WITH RICARDA O'CONNER
Ricarda takes you on a lively exploration of consciousness and intention:  how to set it, release it, and hold space for it to manifest.  You'll learn how to drop down and tune in, helping you focus your unique frequencies and increasing your potential to create positive change.  A background in meditation or prayer is helpful but not necessary.  Anyone can benefit. After participants have completed their inner journeys, the session concludes with a collective sharing, which could be reflective of the experience or a creative sharing.

BRINGING HEAVEN TO EARTH
~ A NEW MOON CRYSTAL HEALING SOUND BATH  
WITH LEA GARNIER & BETH YLVISAKER
 
Our ancestral relationship to the cosmos and Sacred Sound induce varying degrees of "shamanic" experiences. The sound vibrations of the crystal bowls help bring the heavens to earth. 
The New Moon on August 25 is in the sign of Virgo and will also be influenced by the royal star of Regulus, also known as the Heart of the Lion.  This connection is associated with the return of the goddess.  "We stand at this very  moment on the threshold of a new age: the age of Regulus in Virgo.  The Age of the Common Woman... and we ask:  how may we be more resourceful, and more in service by using efficiency to get things working better. 
Crystal Sound will allow us to travel to portals of higher levels of consciousness, expanding the boundaries of our world, and clearing space in order to bring down these powerful energies for the good of all...

WHISTLING VESSEL CEREMONY 
with Larry Brown - Lea Garnier - Beth Ylvisaker  
We are honored to have been initiated into the magical world of the Peruvian Whistling Vessel ceremony from ancient vessel keeper Grandmother Threecrow.
Our vessels are acoustically and sacredly tuned whistle reproductions of pre-Columbian Peruvian instruments, and are used in a group to induce a consensual trance state.  While every experience is unique to the individual, it is possible to receive messages and clear psychic obstructions with this "knowledge is power" ceremony.   By using the vessels as a bridge we can regain this knowledge.

AKASHIC RECORDS REVEALED WITH JUNE BROUGHT 
The Akashic Record is the recording of one's soul imprint since inception. The word "Akashic" stems from the Sanskrit word " akasha", or ether out of which all things are formed. Referred to in virtually every ancient spiritual teaching, it is known in the Bible as The Book of Life. Through accessing this field of energy, with the client's consent, June works with individuals to translate information in response to questions or voiced perceptions; in turn offering the opportunity to identify and release patterns that have become a challenge or block to realizing highest potential from the soul's perspective. The Records offer one of the most powerful tools on the planet today to help us "re-member" our oneness with God / Spirit / Source, and how to create action in our lives rather than "re-action".The workshop will offer an opportunity to discuss some of the awareness' from the Records:Participants will walk away with tools offered from the Masters and Teachers to assist us in shifting and "re-patterning" some of the most common and universal challenges we face in daily physical experience.Participants will also have the opportunity to experience an Akashic Record session and dialogue with the Keepers of the Records.
