🎤 Workshop announcement!

“Who’s on the Stage?”

Exploring nervous system science and attachment theory for a more embodied, authentic performance. 🌟

In this in-person introductory workshop, participants will be invited to reflect on their performance art and explore the chemistry of fight/flight, dorsal-vagal shut-down and freeze. These states often arise during a performance and can result in stage fright and cause us to disembody.

Content will include an introduction to autonomic nervous system function, emphasizing the influence of the vagus nerve as outlined in Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory. 🧠

Participants will learn Chi for Two® partner practices designed to help recognize and stabilize instances of transference and countertransference, as well as trauma responses that may emerge on stage. You are invited to bring an instrument of your choice, but it is not required. 🎸🥁

You gotta resurrect the deep pain
within you and give it a place to
live that's not within your body.
Let it live in art. Let it live in
writing. Let it live in music. Let it
be devoured by building brighter
connections.
Your body is not a coffin for pain
to be buried in. Put it somewhere
else.

Suppose your voice has gotten weak, tight, even painful -- what we sometimes call 'muscle tension' dysphonia. Is skilled massage around the larynx a good option? Does it help to do physical/manual treatments on the larger vocal column?

According to a recent systematic review by Cardoso et al (2017), the answer to both questions is a provisional 'yes'. Even higher-quality studies were limited in their sample size, but the results were encouraging. Several forms of massage and manual therapy for the neck, larynx, and breathing column were assessed for their impact on vocal function, and most methods showed at least moderate benefit.

The big question I have is: how can we extend the relief beyond a few days? What are the cofactors that turn a meaningful session into a robust recovery? My guess is that within sessions, we must simultaneously seek to create near-term relief and also teach our patients a practice of self-inquiry.

Unless a person can build tools around breath, vocal posture, and emotional self-regulation, their voice will engage in protective contraction and the sordid feedback loop begins again. Let us instead use our vocal massage to initiate a virtuous cycle of relief, curiosity, and resilience.

We'll be learning some ways of doing this in Saturday's online/in-person class -- Neurofascial Approach to the Diaphragm, Breath & Vocal Column.

The class blends hands-on manual therapy, compelling breath/voice practice, and of course, a solid neurofascial anatomy of the diaphragm, pericardium, and larynx. We hope you can make it!

When we are in this state, we will often find ourselves flustered, disconnected, dissociated, agitated, and activated, and most of our behaviors are dictated by childhood coping strategies.
