The second weeklong summer singing retreat, freeing our voice and developing the Art of Vocal Harmonics, treats the Magic involved in singing, the stuff that's hidden in our heart.
We are on a quest to regain confidence in our voice and our heart, by discovering the healing effect of improvised song and overtone singing. Every day we will sing, among olive trees, on beach and sea, leaving time for relaxation and leisure.
Song magic is when our singing comes from the heart.
Song magic is meeting our inner child and it's inner parents.
Song magic is being and becoming a channel of loving awareness.
Song magic is about Vitruvian Man and the thoroid-space surrounding our body, about re-alignment and centering ourselves.
Song magic is about The Inner Shaman: wounded healers, sharing the same wound.
Morning and evening group sessions, with plenty of time to discover beaches, lie in a hammock or get a massage...

The main purpose of these sunny days is to provide, in a simple and light way, the techniques that help free the voice and develop harmonics in the voice. This week will be steeped in Magic, from the natural emerald surroundings of Arillas and our event place, the Music Farm, to the depth of the work we will do with our voice.
Igor will accompany everyone in his search for vocal relaxation and full natural expression, assisted by his partner, yoga teacher and wellbeing researcher Arianna Artioli, using simple techniques of breathing, movement and relaxation, discovering ourselves through the sound of our voice. It's the best kind of magic!
The main singing techniques used are:
The main principles followed are simple: listening, openness to the new, sensitivity, courage, awareness and self-esteem. You do not need to know how to sing, you will be sung from your heart :) The course includes demonstrations of various singing techniques, both individual and group exercises, sharing moments and healthy deviations in other subjects.
