Sacred Sounding: Embracing Our Authentic Voice with Anin Utigaard, MFT, REAT
“When we can embrace what is within, we can then embrace what is outside of ourselves.” ~ Anin Utigaard, MFT, REAT
Each person has a one-of-a-kind voice: a “soul-song” that is unique and individual. When we tap into this sacred vessel and listen with acceptance, a healing takes place and a sense of peace is discovered. Having a voice, is a powerful resource that many are uncomfortable using. Not being able to use one’s voice, for whatever reason, can result in feeling unheard, invisible or devalued. How can we support others to find their true voice? How is the voice linked to our own health, personal power and well-being? How can we gently guide others to express any trauma that may have been associated with or linked to their voice? It is amazing when we begin to explore our relationship to our own “authentic voice”.
In this experiential and didactic offering, we will explore how this work with the voice can be used therapeutically with groups, individuals and clients of all ages. This coupled with the powerful art of truly listening to ourselves and others, can reshape how we feel about ourselves and how we can assist our clients. When working with clients using “authentic voice”, one can move into painting, movement and other processes to gain additional insight around issues with the voice, and how the voice is linked to one’s personal power or old trauma. The session will combine the arts, working multi-modality, integrating movement, drama, visual arts and writing. The session will be offered in a Person-Centered approach, so that each individual is empowered to participate at the level they are comfortable with.
