BY RAY FENWICK
@ VOL 16
ON DEC 05, 2013

He points out the fact that our voice is a huge part of our identity, but in many cases we don't acknowledge that it is the embodiment of our thoughts while still remaining a function of our body. Because our voice is at the crossroads of our psychological and physiological being, it can be surreal and disconcerting to practice, but Ray encourages us all to see what comes out!
