“To sing the truth of your heart is powerful medicine” ~Maniko
How did seven women, all who considered themselves non-singers, move from fear of expressing their voice to recording an album and performing a live concert? Maniko, founder of Temple of Song, shares their music, personal stories and the techniques we can all use to self-express through song.
About the Event:
All voices welcome! Join us in song for an inspiring afternoon of music, magic, and divine mischief in the Temple of Song nestled in the Sierra Foothills 3 miles from Nevada City. Maniko and 7 other women will sing original songs from the newly released “Gift of Truth – Medicine Voice” album along with chants and mantra’s for all to sing. These are songs that have been born through the healing, transformation and creativity that arise from a meditative, loving consciousness during Maniko’s annual Song, Silence & Soul Sanctuary Retreats.
Medicine Voice Performers: Maniko, Carol Levow, Garima Tammra Harrison, Karishma Darby, Lisa Wade, Michelle Malaika Black, Natana Spohler, Urmila Marcy Chamberlin.
