How To... Find Your Voice: finding connection, release and confidence.
How To... Find Your Voice is a guide to (re)connecting with the sound you make, finding confidence in who you are through your voice.
Voice is so complex, a system of body, mind, experience, emotion, feeling, breath, intention. It's our most versatile communcative tool - it goes round corners, travels upstairs, and isn't blocked by the dark. We understand the minutiae of other's tones, the nuance of their breathing patterns. We hear joy, rage, sorrow, confusion. And all this with or without talk, the language of which can clarify, obscure, and deepen meaning and communication, can make us think and feel, can guide and comfort, perplex and destroy. Sticks, stones and names can all hurt, very much.
If you feel you've lost your voice, can't find it, don't know what it was to begin with, I hope my guide will offer some ways in which to begin to find ease and confidence in your vocal expression. Your voice is your story.
On a personal note, am utterly thrilled to have had an article published by Psyche.co. I've been a reader and admirer of their thought pieces, essays and guides for years so this feels like such an honour - such a celebration of my voice. Editor Christian Jarrett performed magic, helping me craft books of ideas into this beautiful guide. Let me know what you think.
