Shame

Shame

My experience with voice has been a journey really: sometimes joyful and sometimes dark and saturated by shame.  I do know that the voice holds much of whom we are—it is our connection to breath and emotion and possibly a conduit for the expression of the imagination or the soul.  To add soul or soulful expression to our lives allows us to find more potential to our humanity and in turn more meaning to our experience of living—more expression, more wisdom, more meaning, more joy and peace, more creative action, more satiation.  Who we are is not altogether pretty or well trained.  The creative imagination can be noble, delightful, comic, and a thing of extreme beauty.  Yet, it can also be mean, diabolical, tragic, dark and ugly in every conceivable way.  The voice carries that expression and can give a person insight into what may be truly going on within the inner recesses of one’s soul/shadow.
