Opening the Voice with Plants Medicine and Our Hands (Craniosacral), w/ Erin Gattuso

The combination of song and plant medicine has been used traditionally by many cultures to create a transcendental state of being. In this talk, we are going to talk about the structural and metabolic aspects of this phenomena and learn how we can carry some of the benefits into our daily lives. Voice expression and herbs create a synergistic effect to help relax the fascial and muscular system of the body, allowing the pineal gland to float freely within the cerebral spinal fluid which acts as a transducer, strengthening the connection between divine guidance and our own consciousness. The vibrational aspect of singing allows for the fascial system to unwind, releasing osseous (bone to bone) restrictions that inhibit the fluid movement of the cranial vault. The plant medicine, depending on the type, carries certain energetic or chemical properties that increase our ability to ‘hear’ divine guidance either by removing obstacles to clarity or by strengthening chemical messengers.
