Are you a female identifying creative type, singer, songwriter, musician or performer experiencing doubt, fear, confusion or shame in expressing yourself?

Have you had to deny your feminine self and rely only on your masculine side to be heard?

Are you turned off by the patriarchal, aggressive vibe of the music industry (or elsewhere) and sick of feeling like you’re not good enough or you have to prove yourself, sacrificing your own creative integrity to serve another’s standards?

Is there a constant longing to express yourself through song tugging at your belly?

Have you spent years waiting for permission to sing and now, even though you want to and you’re ready, you just feel blocked?

Do you shy away from calling yourself a “singer” or a “musician” or when you do say it, you feel like a fraud?

Do you sometimes wonder what happened to your six-year-old self who sang out, loud and often?

Through group discussion, singing work, and other process based exercises, you will learn:

• Why we, as women, often struggle to feel powerful onstage and confident in our voice and how to claim our right to be seen and heard!

• How to use your singing voice as a vital tool to clear any energetic blocks around being heard and expressing yourself, even if singing is not your primary mode of creative expression.

• Why denying or undervaluing your feminine self is a huge barrier to being empowered in your self-expression and could be at the root of what’s keeping you from fulfilling on your music goals.

• A non-linear feminine pathway to help you identify where you are stopped and what to do today, tomorrow and a year from now to move forward with your creative intentions.

• How to dissolve the physical blocks and energetic barriers that are keeping you stuck.

• Tools to continue discovering and developing your authentic creative voice so you can stop apologizing for what you have to offer and focus your heart, energy and attention towards embodying and sharing your gifts.

• How to attract the right people to guide you on your journey, from key coaches and teachers to a loving, attentive audience.

She Sings Out Loud (SSOL, pronounced soul) helps female identifying creative types, singers, musicians, songwriters and performers move beyond the barriers of fear, doubt and shame that are impacting your experience of being heard and seen and keeping you stuck in a limited experience of your true creative voice and self-expression. In sacred women’s community, we work to support you in embodying feminine wisdom in the creative process so you can discover your true voice, own the stage with power and poise and courageously take the next step to impact the world with your sound. We know you have an extraordinary gift to offer and we are here to help you discover what that is, trust it, and develop to reach your full potential as an artist committed to the transformation and healing of yourself and the world.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a “Musician,” or “Singer,” this workshop will give you powerful access to unlock and unleash your creativity and feminine power in all areas of your expressive life.

Even if you feel on fire with creative energy and have been actively performing and singing for years, this workshop will help you uncover hidden blocks so you can connect more deeply to your authentic voice and move into a whole new level of singing, writing and performing,
