We hosted a Harmony Workshop today, and it was absolutely great, we had the best time. Gary and Anjalisa are so genuine, and their approach to music and harmony is tuned into what is natural in all of us. By the end of the workshop we were improvising with harmonies and rhythm that none of us could have imagined before. — Cheryl, Hayward CA
“I’d been a kind of ‘closet vocalist’ until I was somewhat transformed by your workshop in Waimea where I was able to join an entire roomful of amateur singers in ‘awakening’ my ear and voice to relative pitch. It seems that somehow, song captures and releases those messages from the heart where speech is otherwise likely to fail. And true to your purpose, you don’t allow anyone to believe that they’re unable to sing. And just as important, that they’re unable to sing along with others in harmony. The room buzzed with immediate gratification.” — John, Waimea
We also offer a Tantric version of our workshop, called “Hug, Hold and Harmonize.” With emphasis on consent, we offer participants the chance to sing in harmony while eye gazing, holding hands, and hugging. Many people tell us this is a transcendent experience.
“The Hug, Hold and Harmonize workshop by Gary and Anjalisa was out of this world. It was nothing short of a divine experience.
I am not a singer by any means but Gary and Anjalisa were so welcoming and patient and broke down their instruction so well that anyone could join.
Combining the power of touch, presence, voice and harmony an amazing energy was created. Each element had its own beauty from the partner work to the group ensemble.
The final activity of coming together in a tight spiral formation and harmonising as a group was the biggest highlight for me. The hairs on the back of my neck still stand when I think of that moment. We all could use much more of this in our lives.” — Hari, Perth Australia
