POWER OF VOICE
OUR BIANNUAL FLAGSHIP program for leaders
find your voice and lead with it!
What could it feel like to aim for peak performance and to achieve it?
Fulfillment and reward are achieved through self-improvement and personal growth.
Before you can successfully take steps towards positive change, it is important to understand who you are, what powers you, and to recognize the self-imposed limitations that are holding you back.
At Power of Voice, you will have the opportunity to identify and develop a deep understanding of what you need to become your best, uncompromised self. This is a unique opportunity to focus solely on your personal growth in a fully supportive environment.
If you want to live a life fuelled with passion and purpose, the time to begin is now.
Come experience your full, uninhibited potential.
The embodiment of the inner self through the voice allows us to be alive in more aspects of ourselves. This integrative theory and process began with Alfred Wolfsohn, who initiated this voice approach in the 1940‘s and 50‘s. Inspired by Jungian psychology he believed that all archetypes are present in each human being. His ground-breaking work sought to reveal a way for full-range vocal embodiment not confined by gender or expectations. Wolfsohn worked with the premise that the more of these archetypes one expresses and embodies, the closer the connection with the authentic self.
The Roy Hart methodology explores the all the expressive possibilities of the voice, irrespective of aesthetic norms. Our Midderigh Vox coaches collaborate with the Roy Hart teachers to harness and channel discovery through the medium of storytelling.
At the core of this work is the synergistic art of active listening. To listen and to be listened to is the core purpose of all human communication.
The Centre International Artistique Roy Hart is a research and study center located at the Chateau de Malérargues in southern France. Named in honor of Roy Hart, a principal student of Alfred Wolfsohn for twenty years. Hart continued the work of vocal exploration as a vehicle for self-development following Wolfsohn’s death in 1962.
Run by the co-founders of the Roy Hart Theatre, the center remains an active hub of ground-breaking research and experimental study through successive generations of teachers and students.
Every voice is as unique and individual as a fingerprint. Yet few people have an equally neutral relationship to their voice as to their fingerprint. By focusing on listening from an open perspective, we learn to bypass judgement and follow our unique personal expression. Our pedagogy is non-hierarchical and collaborative. Our coaches seek to open new perspectives rather than impose prescriptive direction.
A central component of the experience is individual work that acknowledges the unique personality of each voice.
We cultivate intuitive trust through active listening, questioning, reflecting, and describing our experience to unlearn self-imposed limitations and create deeper awareness of potential in ourselves and others. Timbres, textures and emotional qualities become accessible and applicable to the form of expression desired.
BREATH AND BODY WORK
The voice is a part of the body that begins with breath and its energetic potential. Throughout life all of one’s states of being are related to breath. The movement of breathing persists automatically, whether we choose to notice it or not.
Breath is the primal connection between physical and vocal space. Vocal expression surfs the wave of the breath. By opening the breath’s channel, we take the first important step toward releasing the voice.
We use body work, and breath work to release tension, express restricted energy, and to re-experience the simple joy of movement. This helps us begin to consciously embody expansion of the full voice and our own authentic presence.
Stories bring ideas and experiences to life. The most memorable stories are punctuated with impeccable timing, emotional color, and clear turning points.
Over six days our work together will enable you to discover and explore your own leadership stories. You will experience the power of storytelling and understand the impact your stories can have in your professional and personal life.
Gain access to a new world of communication where listening and expression take on new dimensions and carry unexpected power.
This program brings communication from the background to the foreground, giving you unlimited insight on the most powerful and useful tool available in this business of living. And it is already within, waiting to be revealed!

Discover a new way of listening that allows you to communicate effectively in any conversation, with freedom and peace of mind regardless of the conversation’s content.
