    What is Vocal Tai Chi? 'Moving voice between earth and heaven....' At the heart of Vocal Tai Chi is a willingness to listen to yourself, your voice and your body in the moment and to marry this, through vocal improvisation, with centering and grounding movement practices found in Tai Chi. One pathway with the work is to explore this practice in front of an audience. Workshops however are self-contained and provide a complete experience by themselves. When you feel ready to step up in public (and Jenni also feels the time is right) this opportunity is available – thus closing the circle between self, other and the world. Jenni is facilitating small groups and one to one sessions in Vocal Tai Chi to help develop this freestyle singing. She has created this work after 25 years of research and activity across a number of fields including singing and Tai Chi. One of the unique aspects is the original backing music that Jenni has composed for the workshops and for performance. This contains and supports each singer. The workshops use simple vocal and physical practices that help release your voice and body gently and effectively. The music of Vocal Tai Chi is always drawn from your experience of the moment as it is expressed through your voice. Vocal Tai Chi encourages you to listen to yourself, to the backing music - and to the space around you, all at the same time. The challenge is to work with your own spontaneous vocal material to start to create a unique musical language - each one - with their true palette. This can bring a sense of new identity - not always recognized as totally familiar at first! The Tai Chi aspect of the work brings a philosophical source and a practical application. You are not expected to know Tai Chi but simply to engage in the basic feeling of grounding, breathing and centred, relaxed attention that is at the heart of Tai Chi. The form of Tai Chi is not practiced as a formal sequence in the workshop but is there to be called upon as a source of ground, inspiration and deep support when singing in the moment. • You are in a safe and supportive space to improvise vocally and work with Tai Chi in essence. • You will learn how the voice can be navigated with a simple four-step system. • You can deepen your sense of freedom between you voice and body. • You will work together with others and learn from and support each other’s voice work. You will discover a much wider vocal range and a vocal world that is all your own. You will learn from hearing Jenni sing Vocal Tai Chi as part of the workshop. www.vtcsummerworkshops.eventbrite.com
