With Grammy-Nominated Musician, Composer & Sound Designer
Silvia Nakkach

New 7-Week Live Video Course Starts
Monday, April 22, 2024

Experience the generative power of your voice as a sonic activation and a liberating force that has the power to connect you to universal consciousness — and transform the vocal restraint you’ve learned into resonance, leading to joyful personal growth and the knowledge that you are eternally free.

I want to pay attention to the very moment when the voice makes me feel infinite.
Silvia Nakkach

Your voice is your most primal instrument of expression, yet too many of us carry the silent belief that vocal expression is reserved for the “gifted.”

We’re held back from expressing ourselves because of the “shoulds” and “musts” we’ve learned from society.

We walk through life wanting to express our truth, but are often stifled by the idea that our voices are not enough, or are simply not what the world wants to hear.

If you’ve ever felt the yearning to free your true voice from personal, societal, and cultural constraints as a singer or speaker it’s time to expand your consciousness and connect with your original voice.

Silvia Nakkach, a Grammy-nominated musician and artistic director, shares that once you free your voice, you can live in alignment with your true Self. Her method is a process of unlearning — peeling back the artificial layers we develop in reaction to societal expectations — to liberate and attune this precious vibration that is your voice, for your emotional freedom and spiritual longing...

... because from the beginning of your existence, there are two things you have that are unequivocally free: your imagination and your voice.

Silvia, a composer and sound designer who has released 18 albums, is a composer, sound designer, and pioneer in the fields of sound healing and music therapy, where she works with the voice as a musical instrument.

Join Silvia for a life-changing 7-week journey of self-discovery, where you’ll liberate your vocal expression, unlock the healing power of your breath, and embrace the sound of your true self.

At the heart of her approach is silence — the fertile ground from which all sound emerges, and an essential part of the flow of music and creative expression.

Delving into the metaphysical realm of sound, we’ll explore the profound journey from silence to existence. Embracing the power of silence allows us to forge a connection with Source. By engaging in deep listening, we traverse the ethereal bridge that links the realms of “materiality and metaphor,” as beautifully articulated by Silvia.

Just as children play to discover and interact with the world, adults engage in play when creating art, and this very playfulness is at the heart of rediscovering your voice.

This course draws upon ancient yoga and modern science to transform your doubts — turning “I’ve always wanted to sing, but I don’t have a voice” or “Can I even sing?” into an enthusiastic and confident exploration of your voice as sound-art.

You’ll also become familiar with the vocal meditation sadhana (practice) as a revelatory modality of self-healing, transcendence, and the shamanic experience of Tone Magic.

When the voice is approached as Tone Magic, it becomes a vehicle to tap into life energy (Prana), a means to assess energetic disposition, a primordial vehicle for releasing tensions — and the most natural way to align with the Divine.

This approach activates your circulatory system, clears your mind, and helps prompt your relaxation response — while opening pathways to new music that can enhance your creativity and joy. It also acts as a vital force, massaging your body organs and balancing your metabolic rhythms and nervous system coherence, all while stimulating the “frequency of enjoyment.”

By treating your voice as an instrument of joy, healing, and bliss, you’ll reawaken your sense of wonder — naturally learning to “play” it with skill and emotion.

During this course, you’ll engage in a blend of vocal exercises, mindful breathing techniques, and somatic awareness practices, helping you explore your unique voice and its connection to the vibratory essence of life.

Through deep listening, chanting, and the study of transcultural vocal techniques, you’ll not only synchronize your personal voice with the deeper currents of your inner self, but also contribute to a collective vibrational healing that transcends geographical and cultural boundaries.

Here’s a sample of Silvia’s music to give you a taste of what’s possible, whether you’re a singer or not:

Icaro Madresita (Dear Mother Icaro)

This course is designed for people of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience. Forget the notion that your voice needs to be “good enough” by conventional standards. This course is for anyone who wants to unleash the authentic power of their voice for personal and collective awakening, healing, and liberation.


During this empowering course, you’ll:

  • Discover how to create a private sanctuary of voice purification techniques and revelatory mantras that clear energy patterns, stimulate the brain, and enhance memory through call and response chanting
  • Channel raw emotions into a devotional and artistic expression, finding the divine in every sound
  • Become a vessel for ancient melodies and shamanic wisdom, using your voice to navigate and shape spiritual landscapes
  • Discover how to use generative smart apps and simple instruments to accompany your voice and help you develop an immersive daily practice that will add enchantment your life
  • Gain an understanding of how to integrate class information into various healing modalities, including integrative medicine, nursing, osteopathy, psychotherapy, bodywork, yoga classes, and all energy-centered therapies
  • Harness the healing potential of raga singing to align your voice with the healing energies of the universe
  • Explore deep listening and the architecture of silence (nādāna) to enhance your healing voice and foster wellbeing
  • Use yogic and Qigong breathing exercises blended with vocalization for enhanced wellbeing and vibrancy, experiencing the awakening of relaxation and deeper connections
  • And much more...

With a career spanning over three decades, Silvia holds a master’s degree in music psychotherapy and the art of composition, and she’s the founder of the international Vox Mundi Project, dedicated to the preservation and teaching of unusual vocal traditions and Indian raga music.

Her extensive work and contributions have earned her international recognition, making her a sought-after lecturer and workshop leader in the field of voice, consciousness, shamanism, and music therapy.

Silvia employs a blend of theory and practice, including deep listening exercises that draw on ancient wisdom and modern science to unlock the expressive power of your voice.

Through a supportive, interactive environment, you’ll discover how to use your voice to navigate life with greater confidence, creativity, and emotional clarity.

You’ll learn how to use your voice as a cosmological instrument, weaving musicality, emotional depth, and your spiritual essence together to embody your voice as a portal to joyful creative expression and spiritual growth.

By the end of these seven weeks, you’ll be amazed at how you’re able to use your voice as a powerful agent of change for your life.


— Music Therapist Christine Stevens:
“I Think of Silvia as the Joseph Campbell of Song”

Module 1: Drink From the Source of Tone Magic to Experience Your Voice as a Gateway to the Vibratory Nature of Consciousness (April 22)


In this foundational module, you’ll redefine your relationship with your voice — shedding layers of societal conditioning to uncover a voice that’s truly yours, free and unbounded. Through practical exercises, such as call and response and a 21-minute chanting ceremony, you’ll ground into what Silvia terms the “voice mindset,” linking the physical aspects of your voice to metaphysical and psychological layers.

By the end of this module, you’ll not only understand the mechanics of your voice, but also experience it as a gateway to consciousness. You’ll integrate theory with practice, using insights from metaphysics and the ancient Hindu Science of Sound to enhance your memory, awareness, and creativity using Tone Magic.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Use your voice to activate your relaxation response for stress reduction and mental clarity
  • Enhance your transcultural intuition by engaging with contemplative listening and tuning into your bodily sensations
  • Access the vibratory nature of consciousness, opening new pathways for personal growth
  • Reconnect with your voice in a deep, embodied way, turning it into a source of strength and confidence
  • Change your “voice mindset” to uncover your free and unbound voice through call and response practices and a 21-minute chanting ceremony.

Module 2: Explore the Space Between Sound & Silence to Discover the Edge of Silence (Nādāna) and Activate Your Voice for Healing (April 29)


Explore the healing powers of your voice and its pivotal role in the dynamics of relationships, evolution, and consciousness. You’ll discover the profound impact of listening skills and aural experiences in empowering your life, bringing about immediate physical and psychological shifts through focused attention (dharana).

Through sonic meditations, vocal meditations, and an introduction to raga singing, you’ll connect with all facets of your brain, enhance your muscle memory through listening, and unlock the full potential of your voice as a tool for healing — both for yourself and in your interactions with others.

By engaging in deep listening practices, you’ll learn to navigate the delicate balance of sound and silence, activating the power of your voice for personal growth and collective wellbeing.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Forge a deep connection with your inner self and others using the healing power of your voice
  • Cultivate listening as a transformative practice to reinforce muscle memory and psychological resilience
  • Experience the liberating potential of your voice, fostering creativity and transcendence
  • Use deep listening and the music of the voice to create a more harmonious future for yourself and your community

Module 3: Use Your Voice, Breath & Breathing to Accumulate Life Force (Prana) and Ignite Your Vitality (May 6)


Discover the intimate relationship between life’s breath and the soul’s voice. This module weaves together scientific knowledge with spiritual practices, highlighting the interconnectedness of breath and voice. You’ll examine the feedback loop between voice materiality and the metaphors that define our individuality, transforming yourself into a resonating instrument of sound.

By mastering mindful breathing and developing resonance awareness, you’ll tap into deep sources of healing, both physical and emotional. Engage with subtle breathing techniques to become intimately aware of the body of breath and its role in accumulating life force, or prana. Practices in this module will guide you to release psycho-physical tension, allowing for a union of breathing and voice that frees the spirit.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Harness the power of voice and breath to transform into a healthy resonance instrument for deep physical and emotional healing
  • Master mindful breathing to enhance your presence and wellbeing
  • Learn ancient and modern yogic and Qigong techniques to maintain sound and voice health
  • Experience the synergetic effects of breath and voice to awaken relaxation and release stress

Module 4: Experience the Voice as a Yogi With Somatic Techniques for Enhanced Freedom and Expression (May 13)


Use the power of somatic awareness to unlock the full potential of your singing voice. Through foundational body-engaged exercises, you’ll learn to fully embody your voice. This module introduces you to a transcultural vocabulary of vocal techniques that will expand your pitch, range, and expression, all grounded in precise muscular alignment.

As you discover fluid gestures that involve the spine and hands, you’ll not only release the power of your voice, but also enhance neuro-coherence. You’ll come to appreciate your voice as an aesthetic instrument, capable of wordless communication of subtle emotions, a language spoken by the body and felt by the heart.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Engage in movements that unlock a fluid, open, and expressive voice
  • Discover how to use your spine and hands to enhance vocal power and expression
  • Learn how to relax your shoulders to improve resonance and phonation
  • Experience the activation response that links somatic awareness with vocal embodiment

Module 5: Experience Your Voice as the Wings of the Shaman to Ignite Your Voice With Icaros and Spirits of the Unseen Realm (May 20)


Explore the aesthetic connection between your emotions and expression through the embodiment of the 10 rasas, the Hindu theory of aesthetics. This journey through cosmic chant teaches you to transform emotion into devotion, allowing for the release of emotions without being consumed by them, as you tap into the universality of emotions.

You’ll engage with creative imagination and find the frequency that brings you enjoyment. Through practical applications using two pentatonic scales, you’ll encounter the healing power of innocence in lullabies and experience the nurturing aspect of your voice as the Divine Mother. Embrace the concept of the sonic placenta and the spiritual melodicism found in goddess chants drawn from Silvia’s literary works.

This module empowers you to use your voice as the wings of a shaman, flying beyond fear and limitations. Create a private sanctuary filled with medicine melodies from various shamanic cultures, and open yourself to the wisdom of forest Icaros and the protective Orixà chants. As a creative portal for melodic divination, your voice will lead you into trance and unseen realms, teaching you how to craft music as part of a spiritual journey.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Cultivate your voice to navigate beyond the boundaries of fear and convention
  • Create and inhabit a sonic sanctuary with shamanic melodies for healing and protection
  • Learn to receive and interpret the chants of nature, unlocking devotional and protective energies
  • Use your voice to connect deeply with Mother Nature and become a vessel for musical divination
  • Explore the aesthetic connection between your emotions and expression through the embodiment of the 10 rasas, the Hindu theory of aesthetics.

Module 6: Experience the Healing Energy of Your Voice as an Artist With Raga Singing (June 3)


Combine deep listening, transcendental experiences, and profound self-discovery to immerse yourself in the divine connection that comes alive when you tap into the endless energy flow of your voice, channeling the ancient power of Shakti.

Discover the art of raga singing, where chanting doesn’t just produce sound, it reveals the innate healing energies within your voice. As you echo the primordial soothing voice reminiscent of a mother’s lullaby, you’ll satisfy a deep archetypical yearning within. This practice aligns with Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy of tone as a spiritual entity, allowing you to experience inner, outer, and universal harmonies.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Engage with the spiritual essence of sound through raga, awakening your emotional and healing capacities
  • Satisfy your deep-seated longing for connection with the archetypical comfort of the sonic placenta
  • Connect with nature and your inner self using the shamanic voice through Icaros and medicine melodies
  • Practice a repertoire of Indigenous and forest chants, complemented by the rhythms of drums, shakers, and nature-inspired instruments

Module 7: Reflect on “Who Is Singing?” and Awaken Joy Through Your Liberated Voice in a Harmonic Humming Ceremony (June 10)


Reflect and integrate the lessons your voice has revealed throughout this seven-week experience in community with your fellow participants. This final module is a celebration and acknowledgment of the myths you’ve shattered and the sonic boundaries you’ve crossed — demystifying the incorrect belief that only musicians, the naturally gifted, or those from musical families can sing.

Realize how the intentional use of your voice can elevate spiritual practices, catalyze healing, foster emotional wellbeing, and boost confidence. Your voice is not just an instrument but a pathway to discipline, devotion, and unity with the cosmos. Embrace the boundless possibilities of deep listening, your voice, and the joy they can awaken within you.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Reflect on the key concepts and breakthroughs of your vocal journey to reinforce your learning
  • Begin to create atmospheric shifts in mood and energy by starting a raga
  • Revisit the personal letter to your voice from week 1 to measure growth and set future intentions

More Praise for Silvia Nakkach...

“Silvia’s work transcends mere music...”

Having had the privilege of listening to Silvia Nakkach sing and teach for many years, I am continually awed by the transformative power of her voice. Through her artistry, Silvia has a unique ability to guide you toward embracing your voice and becoming your own song, and when you become your song, all is possible. Silvia’s work transcends mere music; it is a journey of self-discovery and empowerment through sound.

“Silvia masterfully frees my voice...”

In my 12 years of exploring the voice with Silvia, I have never been in the same class twice. Silvia masterfully frees my voice, and anyone who will devote themselves to attaining that freedom will be given wings to soar. Much like those connect-the-dots drawings we loved as children — each raga, each vocal meditation, mantra, or medicine melody offered by Silvia connects new dots within us until our voices become living poetry and we disappear in sound.
— Devavani Lawrence, recording artist, music director, teacher, author of Falling Off the Moon
