James Bay United is blessed to be hosting Los Angeles based vocalist, composer, and teacher Odeya Nini for an immersive 3 hour workshop. 

Odeya is an internationally renowned artist and educator, who has lead immersive and inspired workshops around the world through her Free the Voice workshops. Free the Voice is workshop where participants "explore the voice as an instrument that radiates and resonates from the imagination, body, and movement". It is open to any and everyone—I would say especially for those who feel a disconnect from their own singing voice. This is a chance to not only discover, but to fall in love with, your voice. This is a healing practice. 
Here is how Odeya describes Free the Voice:
"A workshop dedicated to Vocal Expression, feeling and understanding the physicality of sound, freeing our minds of preconceived ideas of song, and opening our ears to new forms of sonic composition within ourselves. Both through introspective work and outward playfulness, we will explore the voice as an instrument that radiates and resonates from the imagination, body, and movement, not limited to conventions of language, but rather able to convey myriad forms of communication. Come play, unwind, listen, explore and Free the Voice!"

In addition to the workshop, Odeya will also lead a Sound Bath. Sound Bath's are a healing practice were participants enter into a "total sound immersion in the healing power of the human voice." 

Voice Bath offers an invitation to open your body, heart and mind as you journey in meditation to the healing sound waves of changing vibration, dynamic tone, melody, emotion and the powerful resonance of the voice, crystal and Himalayan singing bowls."
