Medicine Singer 2020
A residential training for Singers and Healers with Sarah Patterson September 5-11 2020, March 6-12 2021
Becoming the Medicine Singer is a journey to embody your personal medicine through your singing voice and offer it in the world.
Singing creates a doorway. Essentially when you sing, you are materialising something into the world through the pure vibration of your sound and your intention and it is a powerful act. It changes things. At best your singing inspires, moves and heals. A Medicine Singer is someone who becomes a gateway of sound to enable transformation and healing in the world. Consider this training if you have a calling to bring through the songs, sounds and energy that create transformation.
There are 2 main focuses within this programme.
1. To facilitate your development as a Medicine Singer through all the stages of the training.
2. To help you explore and refine your vision for this work and to support you as you focus on a project you would like to birth in the world.
Whether you are a workshop leader, one to one facilitator or someone engaged with your own personal exploration, ‘Becoming the Medicine Singer’ programme allows you to integrate a profound level of listening, receiving and being medicine in yourself. It helps you bring your unique, inspiring sound and songs into your work and your daily practice. Group support and honouring each other deeply are essential during the training. Also essential is the deepening awareness of the effect of your voice and knowing the best way to use it to be of benefit to yourself and others. We work with care and vibrational, energetic awareness so we become skilful. As much as anything this is a training in wisdom.

Why Medicine Singing? We create our own medicine songs to support the loving heart of who we are as spiritual human beings and our path in this life, just as people have for millenia. Knowing our medicine and what we offer to others and the world is an important and empowering experience. Often medicine songs arise spontaneously for that moment, a song of the wind singing the sky, your love of a tree or a healing colour. Perhaps you sing an invocation, a calling to Spirit with a purpose. These experiences can often lead us into a deep calling.
In Medicine Singing we cultivate inspiration, knowing how to receive and when to act. From the deep place of listening and the development of your intuitive sound and energy skills, you can offer your singing in situations requiring healing, when individual clients ask for healing and on a personal, group or planetary level. The interaction of sound and energy, the subtle and powerful vibrational levels of this work, are all important as you develop awareness during the Medicine Singer training. Our group work, individual work and energy bodywork reflect this as does our attention to the purehearted, loving and true nature of the offering.
As you create medicine songs which express and empower you, we turn our attention to supporting the next stages. How do you want to offer your medicine in the world? What are your intentions? How do you want to unfold your path as a singer? The deepest, truest aspect of Medicine Singing is being in trust and clarity with your own heart and the greater heart we are all within, the joy and wisdom we experience with our true resonance, sharing its beauty.
I have developed these sound and healing techniques over many years, through working with clients, programmes, workshops and trainings in the UK and working internationally as a Medicine Singer. I also include Hawaiin lomi lomi and practice, Tibetan practice, chanting, meditation, visualisation and breathwork. You are actively encouraged to seek out and include your own approaches in this work.
Bonus Session: Each participant is offered a Medicine Singing Journey with Sarah during the training.
Our venue is a lovely retreat centre in Cornwall which has a fogou, an ancient human created cave for singing, personal reflection and ceremony. There will be personal vision quest on the beautiful supportive land.
I have sung and created songs in ceremony and travels with indigenous peoples in North and South America, Australia, Asia, the Himalayas, Hawaii and in Europe and know how wonderful and healing it is to gather together, listen together, sing our medicine, share our wisdom and offer our prayers. I am looking forward to what this group shares immensely.
