The workshop is for all who want to experience the expressiveness of their voice in a new way. We let our voices cheer, dance, sound together, be wild and rough and quiet and gentle. And we let them fade into silence.

By integrating the silence, our singing gains a dimension in which we can fully enjoy the variety of expression, harmony and rhythm. And in return, the creative use of the voice helps us to immerse ourselves in the silence and gives it lightness.

Voice:

We playfully combine elements of voice training, improvisation, overtone singing and choral pieces from 5 centuries.

Silence:

We experiment with possibly 5000 year old meditation techniques from the ‚Book of Wisdom‘, with Vipassana and with active methods developed by Osho for modern man.

Enjoyment:
And in a relaxed atmosphere without pressure to perform, we will find time every day to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and good food.

Elontuli:
The workshop takes place in the south of Finland.
The detached seminar house Elontuli is surrounded by lakes, fields and forests.
The friendly team of the house provides a soothing atmosphere with excellent vegetarian food and keeps the house sparkling clean and beautiful.
