*singing our authentic voices: women's voice workshop w/ sylvi alli.


Experience your voice as an instrument of personal expression!

• Discover a more open, responsive way of using your voice through breath, movement, toning, chant and song.
• By increasing awareness of sensation and inner resonance, we will move towards strengthening the voice/body connection.
• This embodied voice approach encourages a release of tension and self-consciousness and a deepening of inner listening.

a mini-update on Hollis. thank you to everyone who gave to help her and who came to the GOLD RUSH benefit recently at Slim's. $10,000 was raised that night thanks to all of you! $100,000 has been raised overall, but money is still needed to support her and her family during this time of healing. you can donate at http://friendsofhollis.com anytime. a loan was taken out last week to fly her back to the US, and she is now at Stanford University Hospital, receiving donated care. her Mom has huge medical bills from India in addition to the loan for the flight to pay back, so every donation helps. check http://friendsofhollis.blogspot.com for updates on Hollis and to find out about more benefits. she is reported to be making verbal noises, opening eyes, and squeezing hands - please continue to keep her in your thoughts.

also, did you hear? the Obamas are going to grow an organic garden on the White House lawn! celebrate by planting an organic garden at your house too!

thank you. hope to see you soon. as always, please spread the word~
