Where vocal meditation meets the fundamentals of effortless singing.
About the Series:
Free your voice, quiet your mind, and nourish your spirit.
Through the use of mantra, seed syllables, toning and chanting, we’ll do a deep dive into the subtleties of your voice and awaken the rivers of your breath. You’ll discover more vocal presence, refinement of intonation, and the bliss of a relaxed tone. Learn to sing with ease rather than force. You’ll be given simple, yet powerful take-home practices that develop sustainability for your voice and promote greater health and well-being for your whole body temple.
Each 6 week series, A, B, and C, will offer a different repertoire, a different collection of chants for you to learn and practice and enjoy! A is held in the new year, B in Summer, and C in the Fall.
This is an invitation to slow down, tune-in, and listen deeply with complete embodied awareness. The power of presence awaits you.
The course includes:
6 hour-long Zoom classes with Heather’s instruction
A playlist of weekly vocal excercises and chants from various traditions
A re-play of the Zoom class sent to your inbox (just in case you need to review anything or missed the call)
A free download of Heather’s “Prayers for the Water” album

“I must say, I have been taking private singing lessons for several weeks and I have gotten TONS more out of a single lesson in this Art of Mindful Singing course than I have through all my weeks of private lessons! I would sincerely love to just contiue learning with you online however that may be possible!” – Anonymous
“I feel incredibly honored to have participated in the Mindful Singing Online Class. I learned many tips, scale nuances, songs and postural techniques that I know will serve me throughout the rest of my singing life. Just being even in the same virtual space as Heather I found to be powerfully moving and informative… taking an hour once a week to drop-in for a sit and sing with Heather and my beautiful fellow singers was a high point of my week.” – Mitchell Hambley, Monterey, CA
“The Art of Mindful Singing taught me to shift my attention in the process of singing from outward to inward. I now pay attention to the vibration of each note that is sung, to where it lands in my own body and how I can create more space for it to be within me. It opened me up to the depth that exists in songs that I had sung before, but never with minute such attention. Heather’s guidance taught me how to let go and get lost in the vibration of each note so that my mind could rest and I could be connected to my Self. It was truly medicinal and deeply nourishing. I am so grateful and can’t wait to take the full series!” – Megan Murphy-Rouse, Ashland OR
