I would sign up for anything Phoenix Song teaches. I’ve done both private sessions and group classes with them. Both are the most inspiring and supportive classes I have ever taken–Lisa
Do you want to live your life in alignment with your truth? Have you felt stuck in different areas of your life and want to move forward with clarity and ease? If you are willing to do authentic, vulnerable and courageous work, then we may be a great match. My approach is playful, mindful, and compassionate. Expressive Arts allows you to contact the wisdom of your body as different modalities such as movement, voice work, drawing, storytelling, and theater allow deepening insights and breakthroughs.
I am a Tamalpa Associate Teacher of expressive arts and on faculty at the Wheat Institute where I co-teach a course called The Art of Solidarity. I incorporate somatics, drama therapy, and other healing practices such as tai chi, reiki, mindfulness, theta drumming, and breath work to help you explore different themes in your life that don’t seem to resolve through talk therapy or left-brain processes. I love working with people who are empowered to create change in their life and need some support, witnessing, and guidance to release grief, rage, adoption-related trauma, sexuality, gender and racial/cultural issues, and more. I enjoy working with internal family systems and helping people reparent their wounded inner children. I also like providing tools for people to gain clarity and voice their boundaries, desires, and needs to create safety and new directions in their lives. I am here to help you connect with your life force, pleasure, and joy. I am available for single, short term, and long term sessions. Reach out for a complimentary 20 minute phone call to see if we’re a good match.
Musical Instruments Lessons
Phoenix has taught me to play from within. They create space for my own music and song to express itself while also pushing me to build good technique through careful listening–Andrew, Native flute
Have you always wanted to learn how to play a musical instrument? It’s never too late to begin. It’s one of the best activities for your brain and is deeply satisfying as you tap into your creativity and expression. I am available to teach absolute beginners to advanced students. I am a patient, supportive, enthusiastic, intuitive teacher and guide on your journey of playing your instrument and allowing your music to come through. I teach the following:
Hand drums (Djembe, Cajon, Arabic Tambourine, Buffalo drum, Hapi drum)
Piano and Harmonium
Native flute and Harmonica
Sound Healing & Theta Drum Journeys
When I heard your sounds, all my body’s tensions relaxed and softened, and I had a general sense of ‘surrender’, letting go, from within. This helped me be more open and receptive to letting in love–Leo, participant
Experience the healing effects of sound in a private sound healing and/or drum journey. Sound baths include lower frequencies (buffalo drums and didgeridoo), medium tones (flute and strings) and higher vibrations including bowls, bells, and angelic singing to tune your whole body and leave you feeling more grounded, relaxed, calm, and energized. You may experience a release of painful emotions as well. If you choose, I can lead you through theta drumming to entrain your brain to theta waves so that you can access clarity and a higher state of consciousness to meet your power animal, spirit guides, ancestors, and more so that you can gain greater insight and healing.
