UPCOMING EVENTS AND WORKSHOPS
SOUNDWEAVING WATER CAMPING WEEKEND in Hinton Alberta
Although a lot of interest has been expressed about the SoundWeaving Water weekend with Danielea Castell, the timing seems to be other than ideal for many people.Therefore the weekend has been postponed until the Fall of 2013 when we are looking to schedule a one-day SoundWeaving Water workshop in town.
For personal reasons Danielea is still required to be in the Hinton area next weekend and we are delighted she is willing to offer a couple of Water-appreciation opportunities as well as her private Voice Mentoring and Sound Therapy sessions.
VOICE MENTORING AND SOUND THERAPY
Each session is unique and designed to address a current challenge which becomes your doorway to voicing your heart's truth with passion and clarity.
Phone, text or email Danielea directly to discuss your personal situation and book appts. Sessions are 1, 1.5 and 2 hours @ $75/$115/$150 each.
Appts are available from Thurs. June 13-Sunday June 16

BENEFITS OF CHANTING
In addition to deepening your personal relationship with Water, chanting has many documented benefits for health and wellness. Benefits include: expands lung capacity, increases oxygen in your body, lowers blood pressure and heart rate, releases physical tension, mental stress and reduces pain, while increasing energy, vitality and releasing endorphins or ‘feel good’ vibes.""
"When we chant we activate the sacred in our voice and unite with others to amplfy the sacred in our world." Danielea Castell

What People are saying about Danielea and SoundWeaving experiences:
"I can't thank you enough Danielea for the offering you are bringing to Quesnel. My being has been moved in such a deep and profound way! Your commitment to your calling, your voice, your purpose truly inspires me to become more open, committed to my own calling, my own voice, my own purpose on the planet!
Your workshop has reawakened yearnings in me that I haven't felt since I was a child. You are indeed a Weaver, not just of sound but of souls. I will be highly recommending you to my clients and everyone I know."
Janice Butler MEd Registered Clinical Counsellor
Through Danielea's voice empowerment workshops I have fallen in love with my voice again. The authentic sacred voice that was lying dormant deep within me has risen to the surface and has given me a renewed sense of confidence and awareness. I am able to communicate with more clarity and conviction whether through song, sound or speech."
"My experience at your workshop 3 nights ago was awesome. Nowhere before have I learned that the voice can be used for so many purposes. It reminded me how sacred our voices are in all the ways that it expresses our inner selves and provides means for communion. I am grateful for Danielea's ability to create a welcoming atmosphere that fosters risk-taking and experimentation with the voice. This workshop is more than just vocal training, it is a workshop that trains us on how to be more fully human and alive.
Furthermore, I went for a 3-day solo kayak trip right afterwards and I sang the craziest, ranting, chanting, panting, screaming, hoofing, giggling, solemn songs ever. I am amazed." Michael Geselbrach, UBC Urban Agricultural Student
"What I took away from the Water ceremony was how the river is such a powerful metaphor for living - inviting me to totally trust and surrender to what is. I am grateful for this timely teaching. Water is definitely the gift that keeps on giving! Thanks for the experience!" Parise Cyr-Lasonder, Hinton AB
"Danielea's voice and the chant starting with 'Oh Water' keeps repeating itself in my mind. Then I add my own words blessing water with my deep feelings of Love and Gratitude. The ceremony really touched me." Troi Leonard
