Woerner will explore the power of the voice in a mindfulness workshop


Community members are invited to join Healthy Acadia on Thursday, January 6, 2022 from 5 pm to 6 pm, via Zoom for “The Presence-and Presents-of Our Voices,” with special guest Danielle Woerner. The free online event is the tenth installment in Healthy Acadia’s monthly Mindfulness series.

Woerner will lead participants to explore how developing the simple habit of being attentive to the sound and feel of our voices, and not just the content of what we say, can transform our communication with others – and with ourselves. Participants will use simple chants as well as speaking exercises to experiment and discover together. Woerner recently explored the mind-voice connection in his blog, Song-Lines: https://singintojoy.org/blog.php.

Woerner is a professional singer, recording artist, and vocal teacher whose work has always included a deep interest in our attention span and the healing aspects of working with the voice. In 2020, she moved her teaching practice entirely online while simultaneously launching the “Sing into Joy — Singing as Your Path to Wellness” initiative (www.singintojoy.org). Mrs Woerner lives in Milbridge with her husband, with whom she founded the Sunrise County Institute of the Arts in 2014.

Pre-registration is required for this free event. To subscribe and receive the Zoom link, go to bit.ly/mind-voice.
