Wisdom of the Body

Feb 26, 2021

Listen to inspiring musician and voice therapist Nessi Gomes explain the process of really meeting oneself through speaking and sounding. She explains her Vocal Odyssey work, and the process of helping individuals unblock their voices without getting caught up in the stories that formed the patterns. Learn how to reconnect with the primal part of your being that doesn’t care about what it looks or sounds like, or about being perfect or good: your essence.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why so many of us edit our expression.
  • That it’s possible to transform discomforts and uncomfortable emotions to release blockages and gain insights about your life from essentially a shamanic journey through the voice, and no drugs necessary!
  • How to explore creature language, vowel sounds, gibberish and made-up language so that we keep our minds away from words, which can bring us back into story and block our ability to dissolve the ego state.
  • The importance of playfulness and improvisation in healing work, and how we can learn a lot about flow from children.
  • The voice as a mirror and a portal to our essence.
  • The importance of releasing your emotions and communicating about uncomfortable sensations and emotions, rather than keeping up appearances.
  • Encouraging people to bring all of them to the table, including the uncomfortable to the surface – to find liberation.
  • Why it’s not just about chasing rainbows and light and the benefit of being with the difficult parts of ourselves.
  • How to explore this voicework to plant the seeds for a more holistic relationship with yourself if you feel the call.

Born on the tiny island of Guernsey (UK), singing and music became Nessi Gomes’ way of dealing with challenging life circumstances. From a young age, she discovered the ability to transform discomforts and unspoken emotions by exploring sound and has continued since to root herself more and more in the therapeutic value of music and expression. In 2016 Nessi released her debut album Diamonds & Demons and since then toured in more than 30 countries, sharing her music on major stages as well as her Vocal Odyssey, voice exploration workshops and retreats. Nessi holds a BA in Creative Expressive Therapies in Music (Derby University, UK, 2008). She also has a Diploma in Group Voice Therapy (British Association of Sound Therapy, Chichester, UK, 2015).
