Using Your Voice for Stress Reduction and Maybe Even Healing!

This a wonderful tool for your toolbox of self-care.
You will learn to express.
What is sounding? Is it hard to learn to do? Sounding is not singing or chanting. There are all kinds of sounds. It depends upon your intention and your desire for well-being. You will make different sounds to gain different results – and you will learn to make spontaneous sounds that naturally arise.
