About the retreat
Your Wild Voice
with Ana Maria Pinto
9-14 June 2024
This is a Tinhela610 curated retreat.
Sing, be enchanted, relax, let go and find your voice. The voice that perhaps has been forgotten?
Your wild voice, embedded in the wisdom of your body. The mirror voice of the lineages, open resonance of the wound and the feeling of every muscle that screams, cries and laughs, you savage, daughter of other daughters, daughters of the Earth. Your voice that inflames you, that lights your guts, the voice that rises in tears to the spark that gives you Eternal Life. Your voice that teaches you to heal with sacred sounds.
The voice that remembers giving birth and being born. The voice that never stops germinating because it is the seed and the flower of life in the cosmic sky. The the voice that tears the path to the light.... the voice that you feel in your guts and in your sore legs, the voice ripped from the inside of your body, the free voice, profoundly and immensely free in your hands!
The wild voice, the voice that roars, the voice that screams, the voice outside of time and space, the voice of fear before your vivid, present and terribly lucid eyes. The voice of intensely raw and pure love, the love that chews every particle, the love that never ends, the love of an imperishable tree in the center of your chest, the voice of Universal Love.
You are whole and your Power is indestructible. You are the Voice of an Angel on Earth, You are the Light! Know Your movement, embrace Yourself, expand Yourself, remember the Flower and the Wind in every atom of your Body, reveal Yourself to Yourself - in Your Voice.
What to expect in the 5 hours of guided practices per day:
