One Voice, One Heart ~A New Music Program from One Heartbeat and Giselle Felicia Vivian

As a music therapist, I have always been drawn to empowering others via musical creative expression – songwriting, listening consciously, exploring a new instrument or singing.  These activities have been offered not just as music activities for educational purposes or recreation, but have been strategically designed to address other therapeutic goals; empowering personal growth, wellness and self-expression.

One Heartbeat Rhythm Circles has offered a variety of rhythm-based music events and facilitation services for the community at large and organizations for recreation, wellness, team-building and spiritual expression. You can learn more about this program at One Heartbeat by visiting our separate site at www.circles4drumming.com.

One Voice, One Heart ~ Devotional Singing and Chanting, our latest musical offering seeks to empower and invite community connection, support individual creative expression, and offers a creative approach to wellness and spiritual practice through vocal expression and song.  In a safe, supportive and empowering environment, participants can explore the voice as another vehicle for creative expression and well-being.

The events offered at this time include:

  • An Evening of Kirtan (1.5 hours) – Featuring original, traditional and contemporary arrangements of Sanskrit and other timeless mantras or spiritual chants of various traditions.  The practice of devotional singing and chanting is an active form of prayer and meditation where the focus is not on vocal perfection but a willingness to sing with presence, an open heart, and allow the vibrations of the sacred sounds to find their unique place within us.  It is a wonderful prelude or alternative to silent meditation for many who find it difficult to just sit still.  The evening offers an experience of sound and silence for mind, body and spirit.  Features Giselle on Lead Vocals & Instrumental Accompaniment on various instruments.  Fundraising is currently underway for the acquisition of a harmonium. Visit:  www.paypal.me/GiselleFeliciaVivian
  

  • Singing In Spirit (Duration varies see individual event details) – An affirmative sing-along of original and contemporary songs is a fun musical gathering where the participants are invited to share their spirits and lift up their voices in joyful self-expression and play. All vocal levels welcome.  

Individual and private kirtan events are also available. Please check our calendar of events for upcoming events and click here to join our maillist to receive our latest news.

GISELLE FELICIA VIVIAN, BM CHT has had the joy of making music for most of her life.  She has expressed her musical gifts as a singer/songwriter, classical and contemporary violist, kirtan musician (singing, playing harmonium and viola, drumming), clinical music therapist, and, drum circle facilitator.    She has been serving clients in Santa Fe/Albuquerque, NM for the past 20+ years. 

She has worked as an orchestra manager with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute, The Debut Orchestra of the Young Musicians Foundation, and Disney's Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra and also in arts administration with the Santa Fe Symphony & Chorus and Santa Fe Opera.  Her experience as a soloist, ensemble musician (chamber music, symphony and chamber orchestra), a studio session player, and freelance musician have given her the practice and wisdom to coach others.  Coupled with her use of hypnosis and imagery for performance enhancement, she is able to support musicians of all ages and levels and those seeking to boost their talents to a higher level of expression. 

PERFORMANCE POWER COACHING FOR MUSICIANS & PERFORMERS
Learn to harness the power of the subconscious mind to boost your creative self-expression and success as a musician or actor.  Both amateurs and professionals can be faced with the challenges of performance anxiety, difficulty focusing during practice/performance, and memorization.  Composers/songwriters/playwrights can also suffer from the well-known writer’s block.  In addition to the creative side of self-expression as a musician or actor, many lack the self-confidence needed to audition, compete, negotiate, and make the gig a reality. Develop your PERFORMANCE POWER and take things to the next level.

In addition, Giselle Felicia Vivian, BM CHT offers private coaching to newly formed ensembles of all styles of music that are beginning the journey of working together.  The success of any performing ensemble involves musical rapport, communication, like-minded priorities, and  a commitment to honing the craft as individuals and a group.
