Wellness With Sound & Voice Workshop

Within each of us there is a potential so potent, so personal and expressive, that we can actually heal ourselves with it. From ancient cultures to contemporary scientific methods, information about using the voice, the ear, and sonic vibration for good health is fascinating and astounding. Join Grammy-winner Darlene Koldenhoven in opening a “new” and healing part of you. Learn how to improve your health, eliminate stress, and stay well using music and Your Voice, in her informative, entertaining and rejuvenating adventure with sound, utilizing the many newly researched and proven benefits of music & sound-making for the brain, body and all around health. Guiding you through the space-time code of music, Darlene will demonstrate how you can open your voice and strengthen your ear-voice-body connection while balancing your energy, release stress & emotional blockages, improve circulation, blood pressure, oxygen flow, mental focus and more. The pitch & tone of your speaking & singing voice reveals much about your state of mind, health of body, & intent of purpose; that when tuned, returns the body to a state of homeostasis. Discover how the ear is connected to all areas of the body and why deep listening and the vibrations of singing are vital to your mental, physical and even your spiritual health. Dr. Alfred Tomatis, Don Campbell, and many experts say singing (including 'toning') is one of the most healthy activities a person can do for physical and mental health. Exploring a variety of “healing-with-sound” methods from the ancients to modern medicine around the world, you will experience deep breathing, rhythmic entrainment, resonance balancing, sensory connecting, sonic strengthening, & much more. Emerge with a freer, more confident voice, a tuned “ear,” and restored, enriched, balanced, life energy. No singing necessary.

“Darlene presented a wonderful workshop about healing ourselves with our own voice and music. She preceded her workshop with a live concert of her music. The beauty of her music brought tears and opened our hearts. She is an important addition to any program especially about healing with sound. Darlene is really impressive as a professional performer and as a teacher of healing techniques with sound...

–Carl Bohannon, Director, Edgar Cayce A.R.E. Center, Houston


Mini-Concert
Some venues include an intimate, half-hour opening concert of rejuvenating angelic soul-stirring sounds from Darlene's award-winning albums of her inspiring original pieces and timeless arrangements, blending Classical, Inspirational Positive Pop, Vocal & Piano New Age & World Romantica. Darlene’s vocals are transformingly beautiful and engaging, touching a universal note in all. For those attending the concert and/or workshop, it is a wonderful primer for the wellness-with-sound activities that follow at the workshop.

Don't miss this bliss . . . if you want to experience a sincerely deep and healing relaxation. The Sonic Massage Concert is a one hour therapeutic sound 'concert' using tuned quartz crystal singing bowls designed to massage you entirely with sound, inside and out, bringing you into a deeper state of relaxation where homeostasis may occur.The brain waves slow way down, consciousness flows to a special awareness in a deeply relaxed state. This shift from the chaos, out-of balance, blocked energy into balance and deep relaxation, allows your body and mind to open the flow and release its healing mechanisms. Participants sit or recline in a comfortable position while Darlene plays her quartz crystal singing bowls, serving the needs of each particular audience dynamic, including a piece in a special key used by ancient healers in Malta, a frequency interval that helps break up cancer cells, a sonic guided imagery designed to release negativity and induce positivity and more . . . many participants have said that once the sound started and circulated, they never wanted it to stop. It was like being transported to another dimension!

Certain locations only. Check schedule. Due to the nature of this event, no admittance after start time and no refunds. Bring your own matt or sleeping bag to lie on, a small pillow and light blanket or shawl.

"It's hard to know where to start in praising Darlene Koldenhoven's new album . . . Color Me Home is a mega-ambitious project from this hugely talented singer/instrumentalist and she succeeds in every aspect. It's an utterly charming, beguiling, and highly entertaining recording which deserves many repeat plays in order to appreciate the care and detail that went into crafting it. Massive props to Ms. Koldenhoven on this crowning gem of her musical career (so far)."

"In short, she does everything to put the listener into a customized zone of comfort and relaxation, to receive pleasure from music. The music is often complemented by magical flute, mystically tuned crystal-sounding layers, soft rhythms and delicately synthesized textures. Here, in Tranquil Times [sic], is a true example of an extraordinary, wonderfully beautiful album created by a real master embroiderer of soulful warmth and universal harmony."
