TRANSFORM YOUR VOICE. RECLAIM YOUR LIFE.....What is it that is only yours to say?
When our singing and speaking is directly connected to our entire body, thoughts, and emotions; we can truly hear ourselves and be heard by others.
In the Unified Voice-Work, participants become aware of and shift physical and mental patterns that may be interfering with the freedom and authenticity of their vocal expression.
We all have a voice. The Unified Voice-Work meets you where you are and helps you uncover and share your unique voice, no matter what your current skill or comfort level in singing and speaking is.
Participants in workshops and sessions have received a variety of benefits including reduced fear in singing or speaking in front of others, release of tension in the throat and elsewhere in the body, singing with more range and expressiveness, and speaking more from the heart.
Heather also offers private VoiceWork and healing/personal growth sessions through sound and movement, as well as instruction in singing, songwriting, music fundamentals, violin, basic piano, flute and guitar.
Her teaching approach is personalized and intuitive-bridging practical techniques to the innovative and creative. $55/$50 for adults and $45/$40 for children and teens (1 hr. long), shorter times avail. as well as group sessions. Call: (541) 531-1933
I want to express my gratitude for working with me in your group workshops. I have attended four so far and I find it quite amazing how you create the nurturing environment and feeling of safety that allows me to express myself in song before a group of people. From a variety of experiences in my life I did not feel safe to express myself freely and I have been very shy. Not only do you provide the nurturing environment that enables me to let my voice out, but you also encourage me to take further risks. I've already witnessed myself speaking spontaneously and authentically in the working world environment without feeling fearful. I am thrilled to witness this evolution in my own voice-thanks to the sensitivity, intuition and skill you bring to your work. I thank you from the bottom of my heart."-Elma Ondry

"I would recommend Heather's workshop to anyone, regardless of their vocal abilities. I personally arrived with a challenging set of issues with singing, being brought up with "children are seen and not heard". Because of the techniques and support I received, I am now not only able to breathe more deeply and project easier; I am filled with a new sense of hope and inspiration and will soon be taking private lessons!"-A'janae Jensen

Prepare to have fun and be inspired!" In appreciation, Lyn Bailey (1st time Unified Voice participant)
"I had a wonderful experience in Heather's workshop. In the 90's, I studied voice in NYC for over 10 years in a competitive and successful program, yet felt disillusioned, like something was missing. After that, I let it all go until 6 months ago, yet I couldn't get it back. Something was still missing. In the Unified Voice workshop, I found out what that "something" was...my soul and core truth. I began to sing from a very real space...something I never found in the Big Apple!"-R.B. Brown
"This was the first time I sang in public and it felt very good. For the first time in my life, I felt my voice so free, with the song coming out all by itself. I also noticed how deeply connected we all were in the end. This seminar is a beautiful way to open more of yourself and meet others in a very safe and natural manner. I strongly advise it, especially for those who love to sing but for some reason don't let themselves-like myself!"-Philipp (Coach/Consultant, Saint-Petersburg, Russia)

I met some great people and came to have a lot more compassion for my own and everyone else's process around sharing and opening the voice. We learned some new ways to explore and express song in our bodies and in performance. I had been exploring these methods in private sessions with Heather and found that the group setting amplified the process and added another dimension. Thank you for helping me find and trust my voice."-Sharon Kraus, alternative health care practitioner
