I hope you’re doing as well as possible and taking care of your lungs in the midst of these fires if you happen to live in CA.
RENEE’S LUNG CARE TIPS:
1.Wear an N-95 or KN-95 outside if possible.
2.Drink mullein or slippery elm tea. They are great lung tonics.
3.Sing! Play with sounds for 10 minutes non-stop. Let yourself
sound ridiculous, or tone. It’s ALL good, know why? Because
when you sing, you breathe!
4.Find a Breathwork practice. Breathing regularly not only
expands lung function, but also allows you to monitor it.
With so much change and loss around us on so many levels, we begin to ask, where is the ground?
It seems to me, that one of the opportunities of this time is the possibility of becoming more comfortable with uncertainty.
There’s a joke in the vocal improv community that we graduated from UMSU: University of Make Shit Up. A place where change is a constant, and the invitation to accept and include is foundational.
Let’s come together to find ground, so we can fly into the unknown spaces and birth our new songs in a few upcoming classes.
We will start with mindful breath awareness, play vocal and rhythm games, and explore different ways of creating music in the moment, regardless of musical experience.
I am super excited to invite my friend and colleague, amazing Drum Circle Facilitator, Music Therapist, Musician, and Founder of Rhythmic Innovation, Phil Didlake. We will create a blend of rhythmic play and vocal improv together. Get ready to PLAY!!!
