Discover the magic of timeless, heart-opening chants and songs from diverse traditions and artists that inspire a deeper connection to ourselves, each other, the planet, and the spirit of Life that moves through us all.
Feel confident, connected, and uplifted as we journey from the depths of vocal mindfulnessand mantra to the heights of the most expressive singing.
Classes are held in an easy to follow, call and repeat style. We use the oral traditionof singing. No need to read sheet music. Each week builds upon the last, refining our blend and harmonies and deepening our heart connection with the songs and with each other.
You will learn basic vocal technique, how to trust your own voice, and how to harmonize and blend with the group. You will be invited to sing your prayers, intentions, griefs, gratitude, and dreams. The weaving of vocal vibration, deep intention, and radiant joy, shared by a sacred community of women is the most powerful form of prayer we know to manifest our dreams and transform our lives!
This is sacred space and time for women to be together without the distraction of children. We LOVE your little ones, and we ask that you leave them at home. Thank you!
We are women’s voices rising in harmony to praise life and bless the world. We are devoted to empoweringwomen’s voices, upliftingwomen’s lives, and building strong, vibrant communities.Please join us in lifting your voice with this sacred circle of women!

“Heather Houston is the Voice Whisperer. Yes, Heather’s teaching/coaching brings out our best voice and creates an arena where we can have fun singing. Heather invites you to discover your voice, how to nurture the parts of your body that create your unique sound, and learn ways to access your breath to allow your beautiful voice to flow. As my voice gets exercised and stronger, and feelings are awakened and honored, I’ve learned that singing can be healing, nurturing, and therapeutic. In these unprecedented, uncertain times, singing has been a way to come together as a community, as well as heal myself and the world.”
– Vicki Wynne, Santa Cruz, CA
“Heather’s song leader training changed my life! I was searching for a substantial way to help others through music and to make a living at it. Heather helped me to get my own women’s circle going through fantastic repertoire, leadership tips and techniques, mentorship, and business coaching. My first intro night had 32 women. My first circle had 18 registrants!”
– Zoey Wren, Nelson, BC
“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 continue learning with you online however that may be possible!”
“I feel very blessed to have participated in the Art of Mindful Singing Online Class. I learned many tips, songs and postural techniques that taught me to embody singing and will serve me throughout the rest of my singing life. I practice many of her techniques every day. My soul was nourished and I left feeling so open and giving of exactly that energy into the world. I love singing, and now never worry that I am good enough, because I sing from the inside out. Thank you from my deepest being.
– Jackie, Madison, WI
“I was a part of Heather’s online Spring Session of The Art of Mindful Singing. It happened to coincide with the time of shelter in place orders for Covid-19. Heather’s guidance in singing became my place of self care and grounding during a transitional time of great unknowns. I felt refreshed and protected by her calm, encouraging presence. The songs themselves became a meaningful shelter during the week when fear or stress would arise. I always felt that singing could be both a spiritual and deep somatic healing practice and longed for a teacher to guide me into the art with this as a focus. Heather’s approach supports this in spades. I’m so grateful.”
– Kathleen Cook
“I love Heather and the delightful, positive, encouraging manner in which she teaches. I love her voice and the light in her eyes. I loved the songs she taught from all over the world – uplifting songs, songs of welcome, spiritual songs. And she never put anyone on the spot.”
– Jayla, Santa Cruz, CA
“I love how Heather encourages women to sing and share their light. I love how excited she gets when we sing. There is such an appreciation and love that her energy surrounds us with, and it helps everyone feel safe.”
– Adora, Santa Cruz, CA
“I needed a versatile vocalist to headline my children’s music album. Heather exceeded my expectations in every way, sounding absolutely incredible on tracks ranging from Country Western, Calypso, Celtic, and Rock. Not only did she manage the entire project, bringing together a fantastic recording and studio crew, she even contributed her own original song to the mix.”
– Drew Freeman, Santa Cruz
“I started taking voice lessons with Heather because I thought it was time to get over my fears. With Heather’s instruction, I have already far exceeded my own expectations. I am finally experiencing the joy of singing! That’s me who you see driving around town singing – with a smile on my face, and in my heart!”
– Ted, Santa Cruz, CA
“I would like to tell you how much I enjoy your “Dis Moi” vocal music. Now I will tell you. Hold on -here it comes! “I REALLY LOVE IT!” THANK YOU SOOO VERY VERY MUCH! Your voices are so ethereal, other worldly and out right divine!”
– Ingela Sakkestad
“It’s been great to have such a safe and fun place to start to learn about how to hear my voice and mingle it with others. Heather is a total inspiration of how beautiful and full of emotional voice can sound and I am further drawn toward that journey. Thank you!”
