No. 319: to What Are We Do/Be/ing?

When we experience solo singing
as a response to a collective event
("V"oice singing through US)
suddenly It All becomes impersonal.

The solo singer, aware of this Largest, Collective "V"oice
And the perhaps more rare listener who also knows It

that What We Are Being
What We Are Doing
has everything--and nothing--to do
with our unique individual bodies
at once.

This is the Wonderful Mystery Which Keeps Singing Alive,
Keeps Us Thirsting for Truth,

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 318: Voice Conservancy, the Beginnings of a Dialogue

What is Voice Conservancy?

Voice Conservancy is a perspective of Voice which,
going beyond, yet including tactile experience,
acknowledges the communal act of singing--
even and especially while singing 'solo'.

Voice Conservancy acknowledges
that the individual Human Voice Experience
is not complete until Every Human Voice,
past, present, future--in the NOW--, is honored and heard.

This is the beginning.

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.

No. 317: Introducing the Voice Conservation Institute™

While reading The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony
I realized that Opera Organically 
has always been the vision
of a "Nature Conservancy" for Voice.

I cannot shake the idea that Voice is an Entity:
a Beautiful Creature, a Life Force
that exists only to be expressed
through those who are ready and willing
to allow It to BE: 
complete, whole, wild, strong, true, free, and aware.

I also cannot shake my deep conviction
that, in the right environment
with the right tools and time,
ANY Voice can be allowed to thrive.

 Like the Conservancy Lawrence Anthony created in South Africa,
the Voice Conservation Institute™ holds 
an infinitely strong boundary of Absolute Love, safety, and integrity:
We honor ALL Voices, like all elephants and wild creatures, as integral
to Life Itself. 

The VCI™ is intended to be a community, 
a conservancy, a place of rest and renewal,
a space where we watch, observe, and honor Voice
as It Is Already.

From the Heart School of Singing™ is VCI™ "Junior":

Together, we create a wonderful world for Human and Voice!

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love.  THIS is Opera Organically.

to describe Bliss*)

And, carry on yOur Search for Voice
settling for nothing less
than THIS.

THIS is Life.  THIS is Love. THIS is Opera Organically.
