Voice Movement Therapy: Voices of Strength and Resistance

1st March 2019
IEATA Conference in Berkeley, CA

Song has always mediated the struggles and expressions of humanity. Voice Movement Therapy is an Expressive Arts Therapy which uses the voice as its main modality. In current times, the use of voice to declare ourselves is ever more important and this workshop places the voice and song as tools of resistance which allow us to demand change and join with others to raise our voices in strength and unity. This workshop will be an experiential, multimodal process working with breath, movement, voice, imagery, improvisation and art materials, and will culminate in song based on the art produced. No experience necessary; if you have a voice, you can sing.

Workshops with Lena Måndotter, Copenhagen, Denmark

The Healing Power of Voice and Song

2 February 2019
CG Jung Foundation in Copenhagen
FULLY BOOKED but you can sign up on the waiting list. www.lenamandotter.com

”When the soul wishes to experience something:
she throws an image of that experience out before her,
and then - she enters into her own image.”

Lena Måndotter offers educational and experiential programs in the psychological aspects of voice and singing. The courses give an opportunity to explore the Psyche through vocal expression, combining various expressive and creative techniques using voice, breath and movement.

The focus is on releasing the voice from physical and psychological inhibitions so one can express oneself freely with presence and confidence, in song and in speech.

The song workshops are for anyone who is interested in connecting to and reclaiming one’s own authentic voice. Participants come from many different professional fields and they have all kinds of backgrounds.

No previous experience in singing is required of the participants but a certain interest in psychology can be useful since we can not free our voices without contacting our emotions.

These songcourses offer an inspirational journey through the artistic, therapeutic and transpersonal dimensions of song, music and sound.

The programs are of varying lengths and include the following themes:

Teacher:

Lena Måndotter, singer with a diploma in Voice Movement Therapy (Royal Society of Arts/London under the leadership of founder Paul Newham). She is a registered professional practitioner/member of the International Association of Voice Movement Therapy. Besides working as a singer and teacher, she is also involved in creative work with photography, film and writing.

Lena has studied analytical psychology at the CG Jung Institut in Zürich and and is also a diploma candidate at ISAP – International School of Analytical Psychology in Zürich, working with clients in Jungian analysis under the supervision of ISAP. She has also studied with internationally known Jungian psychoanalysts Marion Woodman and Mario Jacoby.

Other teachers and writers who inspires her work are Marie Louise von Franz, Shaun McNiff, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Deena Metzger, Russel Lockhart, James Hillman, Alice Miller, Linda Shierse Leonard and Robert Romanyshyn.

”The real teachers on the human journey are life and death itself and the sacred helpers from the archetypal worlds. We grow in wisdom from the journeys we dare to make along the exterior and interior horizons of the psyche – through light and through darkness. And mostly I honour the wise animals who still surround us on this earth. A deeply transforming voyage in my life was the one to the sacred mountain of Kailash, in Transhimalaya in Tibet. A journey beyond words.” LM

Lena Måndotter has given workshops and individual sessions since 1990 and she has taught at many organisations, companies, schools and universities: The Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm, the University of Malmö, The CG Jung Stiftelsen Sweden, The Swedish Writers’ organisation in Malmö, MEDIS Medborgarinstitutet Åland, Sensus Study Organisation Sweden and many more.
