Find your true voice!

Are you called by that voice inside that tells you "I KNOW that I can be more?"

WHAT WOULD IT FEEL LIKE TO AIM FOR PEAK PERFORMANCE AND TO ACHIEVE IT?

Fulfillment and reward are achieved through self-improvement and personal growth.

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.

To lead with confidence and live a life fuelled with passion and purpose, start here, now.

Come experience your full, uninhibited potential and learn to LEAD WITH YOUR VOICE!

“It was a magical experience and what had to happen from my end was to have no expectations but to say yes.”

the work

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 all the myriad 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, and the key to authentic presence.

the theatre

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.

“It was all about fresh air and a reset button. It was empowering and something so important for me - communicating properly and using my voice in all its explosions of meaning - connecting to my passions. I feel that I have recharged my energy while embracing my inner self and my passion to live and to share.”  
— RE, Consultant, Spain

the process

Vocal exploration

lead with your voice midderigh vox.jpg

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 a deeper awareness of potential in ourselves and others. Timbres, textures and emotional qualities become accessible and applicable to the form of expression desired.


”I established a new relationship with myself and the world; the deepest look inward, a connection to my soul, an exploration of physical and emotional expression that I’d never experienced before, and a connection to what is at my core, my deeply resonant voice. To share this experience, and watch others unfold, to hear the uniquely beautiful voices of our people come forward, was nothing other than transformational.”
— CB, Executive Coach and Leadership Development Consultant, USA

Breath and body work

breath and body work midderigh vox.jpg

The voice is an aspect of our physical embodiment 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 connect our inner being directly with the outer world. Voice is the vehicle of manifestation and creative expression.

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 truly authentic presence.

“It was a magical experience. Not only it allowed me to find my voice (didn’t know I had such a strong voice by the way) it let me get out of my comfort zone and try new things. I learned so much about the connection between voice and psychology. I learned how important it is to relax and remove the tension on the body to have a clear voice.” 
— MS, Financial Services Manager, USA 

Storytelling 

storytelling Midderigh Vox.jpg

Stories bring ideas and experiences to life. The most memorable stories are punctuated with impeccable timing, emotional colour, flavour, and clear turning points.

Over six days our work together will enable you to uncover and explore your own stories. It is a constantly shifting, inward-outward journey. In learning to listen deeply to ourselves, to others, and to the space between us, and to what is being expressed on an embodied level, beyond words or language, we unveil the power of storytelling and understand the impact our stories can have in our professional and personal life.

 

“I learned about the voice as it connects directly through to your soul, and the processing that one must move through in order to express clearly, resiliently, resonantly.”
— MP, Development and Test Manager, USA

Coming out of the workshop my whole world seemed different. I took away how sensitive I am, how that has an effect to my reactions and behaviours and that there is so much hidden within the soul, voice, body and I have learned how to access that magic within me.

“(The teachers) created a safe and accepting space where I felt free to explore and play with the range and colours and harmonies of my voice. I was invited to be myself, but challenged to take risks. I have learned to honour my own voice, thoughts and feelings despite other people’s thoughts or perceptions. I have more confidence in what I know and who I am.”
