In this course we will explore together:
What can you expect to come away with from this course:
One of the first impressions we give out to the world is through our voice and yet quite often it is something we take for granted. A good voice can help you communicate more effectively, convey your message with confidence, and build stronger relationships with others. It can also enhance your career prospects, improve your presentation skills, and make you a more persuasive speaker or performer. Additionally, it can boost your self-esteem, lower stress levels, and promote better breathing and overall health.
We are excited to offer this short introductory course to get you started in finding your true authentic voice and how to use it!
Details about the course
The course is organized in five weekly two hour classes which will be recorded and made available to all participants. So even if you miss a class you can catch up at home in your own time. Practice makes perfect so there will be “homework” exercises to do every week. You will also be challenged to work on a project to share with the group at the end of the course. Learning materials will be provided.
The course is open to everybody who is interested and curious about improving their speaking and singing skills. Whether you are just starting to explore the potential of your voice or are already using it in a professional capacity, this is an unique opportunity to enhance your vocal skills. The main focus will be on voice production and finding your true authentic voice..

In 2022 the GIC was hosted in Germany where we felt the unity brought about by breathing together – “Breath Unites”… In 2023 we welcome you to Kenya. The theme for this year’s event is “Breathing peace into the heart of Africa”. This is very important to us especially after having a very peaceful general election as a country and above all a peaceful transition of power from one regime to another, we feel that this is a great example to most African countries that are struggling when it comes to letting go of power.
As we all know peace is the core value of our being, without peace we cannot do anything of value to ourselves, and for us to create/bring peace to the world, we have to bring that peace to our own hearts first.. and there is no better way to experience the real peace other than through connected breath. “Peace begins with a smile” -Mother Teresa.
The GIC offers us a great opportunity to come together and connect in a special way. There is no prior experience needed for one to attend the GIC, there is no age limit… this is an opportunity to come and experience the power of conscious breathing as well as the power of being in the presence of some of the pioneers of conscious breathing from all over the world.
Keynote speakers will enrich us with their diverse knowledge and experiences ranging from conscious birthing/breathing, native African shamanism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam and how they all connect with the breath/consciousness of the breath.
