2023 Sound Healing Summit
Program & Replays
How Sound Awakens the Audible Body
According to Vickie Dodd, your voice, when expressed with intention and awareness, dispels the amnesia that can settle in your physical form as congestion, and helps stimulate circulation which feeds your brain. Using your voice to activate somatic sound healing is one of the quickest and surest ways to change and rearrange your structural posture, your emotional stance, and your psychological perspectives.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- How to use your voice to process emotional memories that are undigested and stuck in the tissue
- The structural bodywork of the voice changes your form, especially postures shaped by emotional or psychological conditions
- How sounding wakes up the audible body
