This month, we will explore various toning and chanting exercise which will allow us to feel the power of the voice. Ultimately, with the goal of convincing you about the healing power of sound.

Recently, I wrote about the healing benefits of Toning. If you missed it, Toning is the use of pure vocal sounds to resolve tension, release emotion and activate the body’s own healing process. Additionally, I introduced you to the Sufi expression used for sound and music, ghiza-i-ruh, which means food for the soul. A mantra
Toning is the use of vocalizations to vibrate our biological systems at the cellular level. Using the breath to move sustained vocalizations and intention to direct the vibrating energy to specific places with in the body, this movement serves to release whatever has been held there.
