Join Selina Van Orden as she talks with Jill Purce about the deepest aspects of sound healing and using our voices to shape shift our minds, bodies, and consciousness.
Jill Purce is recognized internationally as having pioneered both sound and ancestral healing movements, teaching all over the world since the 1970’s. She re-discovered ancient vocal techniques, developing the spiritual potential of the voice for healing and meditation. She is also one of the first people to introduce family constellations as a means to healing family and ancestral trauma alongside ceremony and chant. She is the author of The Mystic Spiral, Overtone Chanting Meditations and Healing Voice.
She lives in London with her husband Rupert Sheldrake, and their two sons: musician Cosmo Sheldrake, and author and biologist Merlin Sheldrake.
In this episode, you'll learn about:
  • What is sound healing, and why is it so effective for us as humans
  • How things got so out of tune along the way
  • What it means to resonate with ourselves, each other and the universe!
  • The origins and practice of Overtone Chanting
  • Family Constellations, what it is, how it works, and how it can help us heal ancestral trauma
  • Epigenetics and trauma, and how we can meet and heal the past in the here and now
  • The voice, the vagus nerve, clearing the channels and feeling well by means of our voice
  • Mindfulness practice through sound
  • Spiritual practices for being in the moment with ourselves
  • And more!
