CONSCIOUS SINGER / ACTOR
May 3 from 10am-1pm
Workshop on the Energetics Behind Performing
acts as a carrier wave. Any sound, whether it is
spoken or sung or instrumental, allows the listener
to receive the intention of the performer. What
would happen if the performer consciously focused
on qualities that the music would easily convey
such as compassion, gentleness, love or joy? Here
is the world we will explore.
Using your own body, breath, and simple yoga, I'll
show you how your energy field impacts your voice.
We will clear the throat area, and empower our
bodies, particularly in the navel chakra. I've
shared these techniques with recording artists in
early music, rock, pop and musical theatre. And
they invited me back for more lessons! By request,
I will do this in a group setting.
I am teaching this workshop
I've found a way of helping people call upon their
own guide (or angel, or Higher Self), then welcome
conscious connections with the Nature within rooms,
such as performance spaces, as well as the angel
(or the archetypal energy) that inspired the
composer of a song or play. This magnifies the
healing that the song/play intends to offer to the
listeners. So much so that it is palpable to people
who aren't used to feeling, really feeling,
energy move with sound.
Most of the musicians/actors I work with have
figured out pieces of this (and I'm not convinced
that I have the 'entire' picture myself.) My
experience comes from years of watching auras when
other actors and singers are performing, and my
background as a professional singer and energy
Opening the pelvis through gentle yoga and
coordinated energy movements. This allows much
deeper breathing, and a greater sense of ownership
of the voice.
VOCAL CLARITY AND EXPRESSION What we express as
ourselves comes from the Navel Chakra and lower
body. Our vocal chords are merely conveyers of this
expression. Releasing any energies that are taking
up space in our low body allows us to more
accurately express with our voices.
INSPIRATION The heart space both in the physical
body and in the surrounding energy field contains
the quality of warmth that people perceive in our
voices. Opening into this space more fully and
inviting our guides (some call them angels or
muses) to truly inspire us allows this inspiration
to move out to all those listening.
NATURE By inviting the participation of nature
spirits in a room to join us consciously, we can
gently change the quality of energy and even the
acoustics of sound in the room.
TURNING OFF SPIRITUAL CONNECTIONS Releasing, with
gratitude, all those angels, guides and elements of
Nature that create the container of Sacred Space
for a performance. Sleepless nights, restlessness,
migraines and general fatigue are often the result
of too many ongoing spiritual connections.
For the NY workshop the focus is on performers;
singers and actors. I trust that those who are
listening to their inner guidance will hear if what
I offer, either in a workshop or private healing
sessions, can assist them in their journey. If you
feel drawn to come, please follow that

Sound Shaman Norma Gentile lives between the worlds
of professional music making and energy healing.
Trained in both worlds, she holds a master's degree
in Vocal Performance from the University of
Michigan, and is a published author and channel for
the Hathors and Archangel Michael. She appeared on
CBS TV and has been profiled by NPR's All Things
Considered and the Toronto Star. According to Mark
Longaker (music critic, Washington Post) her
singing has a "supernatural presence,
concentration, and modal sensitivity." Norma's
gift, to be deeply intuitive as a highly trained
musician, allows her to step beyond even the
extraordinary, into the truly new realms to which
music leads us all.
