Nessi Gomes Music | Voice Workshops
The Vocal Odyssey is a deep yet playful journey of discovery into the mystery and healing forces of our most intimate musical instrument - our voice. The process aims to shed light on our judgments, beliefs, conditions and fears. To pierce through the voices in our head and open a door for a new relationship between us and the transformative quality of our vocal expression.

Voice Workshops

A Vocal Odyssey

Meeting with the Spirit of your Voice

Intensive Voice Workshop with Nessi Gomes

“The human voice needs no training; it is already there, finished and perfect as an entity sounding in the ideal world – What it is waiting for is liberation.”
— Valborg Werbeck-Svardstrom

“All I experienced in those 4 days was utterly mind blowing, extremely challenging and liberating. There is a “me” before and after the retreat. It changed how I see myself, both as an individual, but also as a part of a group. It was not an easy journey, but I would do it again any time, and I am deeply grateful that I found the courage to participate”.

Eyvind, Classical Music Composer

 

What is Vocal Odyssey?

Vocal Odyssey is a deep yet playful self inquiry journey of discovery into the mystery and healing forces of our most intimate musical instrument – our voice.

It is not a singing group. It is not about making anyone a better singer.

Rather than that, the process aims to shed light. To pierce through the voices in our head and open a door for a new relationship between us and the transformative quality of our vocal expression. To bring us a bit closer to our beautiful, raw, wild and imperfect human flow.

The voice is our bridge to the divine, our connection to the prayer we carry. In this group we will reconnect to the simple and natural way of expressing our authentic voice beyond judgments, painful beliefs and limiting conditionings. It is about unleashing our raw, natural capacity to celebrate all colours of life through our unique and authentic expression, while tapping into the intuitive and mystical realms of our connection to the present moment through sound.

We will explore all angles of our voice using various tools, while piercing and bringing awareness to all that blocks us from letting our voice simply be. We will discover how singing is not about ‘singing’ – it is in fact about ‘listening’ and expressing effortlessly all that is inside of us, moment to moment.

About Nessi Gomes

Born on the tiny island of Guernsey (UK), singing and music became Nessi’s way of dealing with challenging life circumstances. From a young age she discovered the ability to transform discomforts and unspoken emotions by exploring sound, and has continued to root herself more and more in the therapeutic value of music.

Nessi’s creative turning point took place four years ago upon settling in the community of PachaMama. The nature of the place has reshaped and deepened her approach towards music, therapy and self-healing.

She have just released her debut album, and is currently touring Europe both performing her own music as well as leading Voice therapy groups.

Nessi Gomes is a musician with a BA in Creative Expressive Therapies in Music (Derby University, UK, 2008). She also has a Diploma in Group Voice Therapy (British Association of Sound Therapy, Chichester, UK, 2015).

The Vocal Odyssey workshops are always limited to no more than 20 people in order to keep the intimacy, depth and quality of the work.

Registering in advance is highly recommended.
