What if your voice could reflect your personal power? And what if, through your voice, you would gain the energy, strength and confidence to express who you are?

You know how it feels to have words stuck in your throat and not really be able to “speak your mind”. You know how it is to have a faint voice, when you would rather need a firm tone. We decided to shake things up a bit and bring you the experience of the “Liberated voice” in Bucharest!

We invite you to join a two days workshop (2014, March 1-2), a dynamic and self-discovering experience, where you will learn how to use your voice as a tool for your own personal growth, confidence and freedom. The workshop will be facilitated by Kefas Berlin from Sweden.

IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR YOU?
Try to remember:

  • is it difficult sometimes to make yourself heard?
  • are you afraid to use your voice just as it is?
  • do you long for betterexpressing your thoughts and ideas?
  • are you afraid to sing and feelfree?
  • are you working long hours in an office, using mostly your hands and head?
  • do you want to learn how you could work with your voice as a tool for personal development?

If any of these matches you, then this might be an experience you don’t want to miss.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT IT
ghilimele“…The fact that how I use my voice corresponds to how I live my life, is a sensation for me; to ground, deepen, play and improvise…”

“…Among the most important things are that I’ve found my way back to self again; I found my core, the tranquility, the light, the warmth, and not the least, I opened my heart…”

“…The effects I’ve noticed from the course are partly new energy, curiosity about my voice, a strong self-confidence, and a connection with my body when I sing…”

WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE
We will express a lot, sing and learn to breathe. We will allow ourselves to use our voice in a powerful way (not necessarily loud or by shouting). Through movement and sound, in an atmosphere of trust and playfulness, we will be discovering ways of being more authentic, powerful and courageous, revealing and allowing ourselves to shine. Not pushing limits, not breaking personal boundaries.

WHY IS THIS WORKSHOP HAPPENING

Paul Dumitru

Paul Dumitru

“I’m about to make a dream come true. One year ago I was invited by a dear friend to attend a festival in Sweden, where I joined a 2h30 workshop called Liberated voice. The moment I saw the title I realized I wanted to go! It was something I had been searching for a long time. I had realized that I have a tendency to modify my voice so that it would be a bit more softer, more pleasant, “more likable”. Which was subtly affecting my self esteem.

Kefas’s workshop turned out to be great. It has really been a transformational experience. I remember many things from that day even now. Because they helped me to understand that my voice comes from the same place where grit belongs. And there have been moments when the exercises I went through gave me the confidence to express myself. They offered me the friendly and secure context to set my voice free and connect it to my true self and my own energy. That’s how I decided to invite Kefas to Bucharest and partnered with Irina Negrilă so that together we could make this thing possible.”

“When Paul told me about his idea of bringing Kefas to Bucharest I thought this was the type of event I want to attend and make it happen for other people. So I said “yes, let’s do it” and we started. The theme of the workshop, liberating the voice, is a new journey as it offers a different perspective of what lies inside of me, in completion to what I do through dance and conscious movement. And this workshop is a place where my passion for creative self expression and communities come together. See you at the workshop!”

Let’s put down the veils and masks between us. Let’s be honest and real and allow our melodic voices to bring something pure and direct. Let’s enjoy that together! Looking forward to sharing this experience with you.
