Ancient Voices ~ Feb 7-12, 2018





In January 2015 Ayla sat down in front of a small group of people, two cameras, and 100 online participants, to do her first-ever online workshop. And an unplanned river of creative ideas and inspirations came through.

The course consists of 5 videos with all audio, packed full with hours of Ayla sharing creative prompts, exercises, and many ideas for channeling song and creativity, based on her own personal processes and experiences of creating. Also included two special PDFs of creative exercises, made by Ayla.

This course centers around the craft of song, melody, and words — but applies far beyond the realm of music, and has supported yoga instructors, writers, elementary school teachers, music teachers, filmmakers, dancers, painters, and more.

If you wish to empower your voice, whether for singing or speaking or leadership, this course will support you. If you just want to open to more creativity coming into your life, this will help open your channel. And if you want to write more songs, this course will deeply inspire you, and spark your core creative self.

The course is $150, but if you cannot afford the full amount please send a note to Ayla at the email below. She wants to make it accessible to those who need it.

roots15-389-X3A workshop that is as ever-growing as a voice, led by song weaver and performer Ayla Nereo, to offer our Sound into the world to feed the Life that breathes us each moment.

Through trusting our ability to listen and create sound, we learn to trust our own intuition and power to be creators of our lives. Each time we sing, we find new edges, and by leaning into them we can see who we are becoming. We sing for the Joy of it. And we sing for the Need of it, to make offerings of sound that can ripple out and make beauty and good for this planet.

Ayla facilitates group singing that leads us into a deeper understanding of how to receive and create music, find words and shape lyrics, follow melodies into whole songs, and trust ourselves as we do it all.
