“A large part of this work seems to be letting my body, breath and voice speak before my brain gets involved, to evaluate, calculate and regulate the sounds and shapes my innocent self wishes to make. Christine made space for us all to be our buried, truer selves. The expertise, knowledge, wisdom and love she has for this work allowed every person in the room to go to the land in themselves where dragons live and to come through safe, cleansed and bigger. Like an old stuffy boarded up house that’s had its door lovingly opened. I feel privileged to have witnessed such humanity in a world where there is such savagery to the human spirit, where we all get a bit crippled by being silent witnesses. We have been able to to go to places in ourselves and show them to the group to be embraced, loved and held for being just the person we are. I stand on my chair and applaud. Here’s to the human in all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” Andy McD.

“Vocally more self expression, confident, open and relaxed. Really loved exploring where my voice could go and what emotions surfaced with the different exercises. I recently worked with one of the legendary acting coaches who insisted all actors should take regular voice classes and go to therapy at least once a week. In this workshop I felt I have covered both. I walk out of here more open, energised, connected and expressive.” Mel G.
