Evolving the Voice for Changing Times

Individual Programs 

  • Do you feel that people aren't really listening to you or don’t take your ideas seriously?
  • Does your voice sound too soft, weak, tense, or ‘caught’ in the throat when you speak?
  • Do you struggle with sounding confident and self assured? 
  • Do you have a desire to express yourself creatively, but feel frustrated, intimidated or limited by your fears of being vulnerable and visible? 

As a conscious and evolving person committed to making your unique contribution to the world, you long to be fully HEARD and SEEN. Empowering your relationship with your voice is a key factor in being recognized, valued and stepping into your full potential.

We all have stories about our voices - how we became disconnected from them, and ways we have compensated in our lives for that loss.   And.. let’s not forget that our personal experiences belong to a much larger story - of how the dominant patriarchal culture has silenced women, denied men access to their deeper knowing, negated the intuition-based wisdom traditions, and devalued our relationship with our bodies as well as with the earth.

When our voices are discounted, there are profound repercussions.  By unlocking that free, expressive and uninhibited place you knew as a young child, your authentic VOICE will guide you in the next steps you need to take in offering your transformational gifts to the world. 

  • With a resonant, strong and clear voice, you will begin to communicate with assurance and self-confidence
  • Your creative energy will become enlivened, infusing your projects and life with new direction and vitality
  • As your work becomes more recognized, it will have a direct impact on your financial flow and abundance
  • A fully embodied voice will create a new relationship with your body so you feel more grounded and present
  • Your magnetism and radiance will flow through your voice and enhance your leadership skills
  • Asking for what you need will flow more authentically and relationships will flourish in new ways

“We're living at a time when Western womanhood is just a moment away from emerging into the light of our collective possibility.    Western women should be a moral force on this planet....and we should be taking the wheel of human civilization and saying to anyone who will listen: We're turning the ship around, and we're turning it around NOW.   Marion Williamson


Now is the time for our voices to be heard loud and clear 

The emergence of the Feminine in our world continually gathers strength with each passing year, issuing a call to all of us – men and women – to become deeply attuned to our unique soulful connection with the voice. 

As we become reconnected with the innate power that our voice can reconnect us with,  a new body of wisdom will begin to blossom in the world once again.  Wisdom that is meant to be heard, valued and enacted upon. 

  • Reconnecting to the voice opens up a pathway to your own intuition and inner knowledge
  • Your wild and wise nature will come alive as your reconnect with the "sound of your soul"
  • Experience a sense of coming home to yourself as you remember who you are and your unique purpose
  • Come into a deeper connection with the creative Source of Life and a renewed connection to the earth

With the season of celebration behind us, now is the time to take full advantage of the gifts that the solstice lunar eclipse and this new year of 2011 has ushered in.  Since this is the year for new possibilities, greater presence, and increased visibility, I have created some new programs that are intended to meet you wherever you are in your vocal story. 

What vision for your voice do you hold and where do you want this connection with your voice to take you in your life? I would love to talk with you and explore these and other questions you may have.  I
will be giving complimentary ½ hour phone consultations on how these programs can help you, and what is the best fit for your situation.

Getting to Know More About Me:

Two of my most favourite things to do in life are expressing myself through my voice and guiding others into a transformative and creative relationship with their voice.  Over the last 30 years in my professional career as a composer, I have evolved a large body of musical works dedicated to ‘uncovering the lost voice of the feminine’. In this journey, I have combined different vocal traditions, digital music technologies and software, bodywork, mythology, energy medicine, earth wisdom and ancient spiritual practices that honour the feminine.

Through numerous grants, awards and commissions from the Canada, Ontario and Toronto Arts Councils, I have received the support to develop my own unique approach and musical style in the quest to reclaim the silenced feminine voice and restore our relationship with the earth and all beings.  My works have been performed and broadcast both nationally and internationally, and I have had the opportunity to collaborate with many artists of different backgrounds and disciplines. As well, I have taught music technology and sonic arts at both the college and university level, including Ontario College of Art and Design, U of Ottawa, and U of Waterloo. 

My guiding passion has always been a deep commitment to the voice and to unleash its full potential for both the creative process and as an agent for personal and cultural evolution. 

I am a certified practitioner in SoulVoice, a pioneering soundhealing method that works with the voice and body to create shifts and change on multiple levels. Using the principles of SoulVoice as a foundation, I have explored tapping into ancestral and earth wisdom through my voice, resulting in a new series of pieces from recordings made at ancient sacred sites in Crete and Malta.  The music is mixed in surround sound, and will be released in the spring of 2011 on MP3,  CD and DVD formats.  It is entitled Sound Dreaming:  Oracle Songs from Ancient Sacred Sites and you are invited to listen to previews here

I am also currently participating with the California-based Gaiafield Center for Subtle Activism evolving ways that voice and sound practices can bring collective healing & social transformation, particularly in our relationship with the earth.  Locally I have led numerous workshops, healing rituals, sound circles and labyrinth walks, introducing ways to blend voice and soundhealing practices for diverse intentions and situations, including the ritual celebration of the seasons and events to support those working to create cultural shifts in awareness and practice. 


Working with YOU: I will be bringing all of these varied threads of my background into my work with you.

My joy is to support you in whatever ways you seek to expand and evolve your connection to your voice.  The individual attention I offer you in these programs can serve you in multiple ways and you will experience a breath of new vigor, vitality, passion and freedom as you sink into the rich tapestry that your voice is waiting to reveal to you.

Your guiding voice is the deepest expression of your soul, longing to be known more fully in your body, your relationships, and in the evolution of your pioneering gifts you are here to offer at this time of change. 

I welcome this opportunity to assist you and your voice as you emerge through the chrysalis and become the butterfly, opening your wings to new horizons.
