Voices from Participants

Dear Sabina

For me it was simply an evening for the soul: immersing in the beautiful sounds of your voices and instruments, arriving in the body through the rhythm of the drums and your own voice while singing mantra, relaxing, regenerating, being. This has given me in the currently rather hectic time a soothing break and reconnected me more with myself. And I found the alternation of listening and participating quite wonderful. Mahalo 🙏🏻
💗Much Love.

Damaris

When the music started, my heart filled with positive energy.
Tony played an instrument and my soul left my body.
I was physically here, my eyes closed and my soul in my “happy place.” This rarely happens to me, but the music and the musicians were magical.

I heard Sabina and her beautiful voice. I heard her but did not see her and was in seventh heaven, far away from my problems and life issues. From that place I listened to the wonderful music and enjoyed the mantras.

Thank you Sabina, Tony and Efisio for the magical evening!

Sabina with her wonderful voice and her authentic way of interpreting mantras – unique. and oh, Toni – his percussions always hit me right in the heart.

I am impressed how you manage every time with your skills to create this magic in the room (and beyond) and to involve us all. The music is full of heart and soul, you can feel that so much and also that you really know your craft.

What is important and pleases me is that everyone is allowed to be as they are and what they feel like.
Some people dance to the beat, others sing along with heart and soul, and others just sit or lie there, listen and let the melodies and rhythms take effect on them silently. Nothing must, but can.

The flow of the evening is a spectrum of sacred sounds of different cultures.

Personally, I experienced the entire range of emotions during this evening and occasionally lost myself in the sounds. Losing oneself in the togetherness and yet arriving completely at home. This is how I would describe the evenings of Voice Alchemy.

A treat for ear, soul and heart. Heartfelt thanks.

The Voice Alchemy & Music for the Soul event is brilliant, with mantra chanting, music, dance and meditation. It was indeed an alchemical process of coming together. The evening was truly wonderful and light-filled!
