Event description

Description

After a sold out debut event, Cam Priyadarshana Fraser and Edwina Masson are collaborating again to bring you this Alchemy workshop where you'll learn how to connect with and authentically express emotions through movement and sound.

Drawing on his background in yoga and massage, Cam is coupling his knowledge with Edwina's incredibly in depth understanding of all things related with the voice to deliver a half-day workshop exploring emotional connection and exression through movement and sound.

We welcome you to Physical & Vocal Alchemy, a sacred relating experience unique to the incredible Swan Valley area. We honour the Nyoongar Aboriginal people of the Wadjuk tribe; the traditional custodians of the Swan Valley, Perth Western Australia.

Recent research is helping propound the idea that emotions, both positive and negative, are actually stored or retained in the body if they aren't appropriately and cathartically expressed.

Yogis have known about this phenomenon for generations and have developed practices that aid in releasing these trapped emotions. Vocalists have been tapping into these stored emotions for years and know how to access or evoke specific responses from themselves as well as others.

A you interested in the relationship between the physical and emotional bodies? Do you feel as though you're not voicing your emotions genuinely?

In order to truly start connecting with and expressing our emotions, we must first realize the importance and sacredness of our relationship with our body as well as our relationship with consciousness.

"The way we've gotten too attached to our stories can be compared to the emphasis we place on specific words and postures. Similarly, just as we neglect our underlying emotions, so to do we find that our voice or sounds are void of any intention," Cam and Edwina, Emotional Alchemists.

This half-day workshop will include:
- Unique teachings from Cam and Edwina
- Learning ways to connect with emotions stored in the body
- Understanding how and why emotions are stored in the body
- Finding postures specific for your physical and emotional body
- Learning various breathing techniques
- Introducing sound as a means to express emotion
- Discovering movement exercises to connect the body to the voice

Participation in all activities is completely voluntary and you will never be forced to do anything you are not comfortable doing.

Who is this for?
Physical & Vocal Alchemy is for all people, regardless of age, gender, relationship status or experience. This is an introductory event suitable for anyone who is interested in personal development.

What should you expect?
More often than not, our day-to-day expressions of emotion can be quite superficial, with no real connection between our words and our body, leaving us feeling numb and energetically stagnant. Imagine if you could channel your emotions into authentic and cathartic movement and melody. This is what Physical and Vocal Alchemy can help you achieve.

Part 1: Breath
You'll be guided through several breathing practices that will deepen your breath as well as relax your body.

Part 2: Movement
You'll be guided through a sequence of simple Yoga poses that will connect you to your physical and emotional body.

Part 3: Sound
You'll be guided through a series of gentle vocal exercises that will act as catalysts for emotional expression.
