A spiritually focused group in which your soul sound can be expressed and explored; sound that arises from deep silence, in toning, singing healing songs and chants, and through vocal improvisation.  I have been working with meditation, sacred song and healing for over 24 years and have been running Heartsong Sacred Singing gatherings since 2000.  I am often in profound awe of the powerful energetic space we can create together, and I have had so much feedback of people’s positive and transformative experiences. 

Laura: ‘In these times of great change we do need to find anchors, sources of stability and hope.  Your group is one of those places…..’

Sam, ‘Thank you Bryony and Heartsong for a truly uplifting experience! I felt really at home in the beautiful and serene space and enjoyed meeting new and exciting like-minded people! I really loved singing all together as a group and the sounds we created were magical! Bryony showed us how to vocalise our chakras, and really let go and improvise, which was great fun! I’d love to come again and learn more mantras and be with other people who love to sing too.’

The HeartSong Kirtan Circle is a bi-monthly Meditation and Chanting group, linked with Moon cycles, the energy of Nature, and the ancient seasonal festivals.   We sing songs from various traditions, and explore sound healing and improvisation.  We celebrate our Heartsongs, sharing our authentic voices from an open heart.
I also run Regular Day Workshops and Retreats, in UK and NZ.  

See the Events page for upcoming events:  HeartSong events in the UK are currently postponed.  I am offering sessions on the Heartsong Facebook page and one-to-one by Skype for people in the UK.

Heartsong Healing Kirtan

HeartSong creates a space of healing and transformation for people, taking the participants beyond their sense of themselves and their abilities, and putting them in touch with voice, a sound and a presence that is bigger and more powerful – rising out of a deeper sense of silence.  HeartSong is linked in with the power of the New and Full Moons, reminding us of our connection to the Earth, to Spirit and to each other, and focusing energies for Earth Healing and Healing of participants.

Day Workshops – to Order!  I am currently available to run weekend, day or session workshops anywhere in the lower North Island NZ.  All you need to do is gather a group of 6 + interested people and have a venue, and to contact me! 
These days can be wonderful and transformative experiences in which to explore Voicework, Sacred Song, Empowerment, Ritual and Energy work such as sounding for the Chakras.  These sessions are a powerful opportunity to work deeply with your energy body and voice in a safe, held group space.
I have many years experience working with voice and healing, and have led successful Voice and deep chakra workshops before. I am a trained energy healer, a published poet and an award-winning film-maker

Feedback from participants:

Jools:You put so much of yourself into these events….. The Heartsong (whole event) was wonderful, I feel you’ve shifted some blocks & put me in touch with parts of myself I’d forgotten/may not even have known before. It was valuable to look back over 2019 and identify the positives, and to set my intention/invocation for 2020. The humming, chanting, singing, soundbath – everything individually was great, and the whole package was awesome, with a great bunch of people 🙂
Frith: ‘Bryony held the space in the energy of generosity and warmth. I felt safe to release my voice from old fear and shame and have fun, even laugh. I was able to experience and share the beauty of my voice raised alongside others in simple and joyful harmony. The group went to a safe heart space together and I can’t wait for the next one – truly divine’.
Mary: ‘These workshops give me a chance to be free with my voice in a close, supportive setting, where people are not competing with each other, but rather contributing to a uniquely collective gathering, and in which participants are free to explore voice work, chant together & share food – what’s not to like?!  Bryony is a kind and welcoming host & facilitator’

Some of the songs we sing are: We Are Opening Up in Sweet Surrender (Findhorn): We are Opening up, We Move from Darkness to Light (Bryony): We Move, Veni Sancte Spiritus (trad. latin prayer, arr. Bryony): Veni Sancte,I Open Myself to the Medicine (Bryony): I open Myself ,and songs like Belle Mama, a celebration of the Earth from Africa: Belle Mama

One-to-One Sessions:

The Heartsong experience is now available in both the group and in individual sessions with one-to-one coaching and healing, which can help you build confidence and strength in your voice.  Please contact me for details if you would like to know more, or take a look at www.songofawakening.org.uk.  Here is some recent feedback from this work to give you a sense of what is possible: 

‘Thank you Bryony for the gentle guidance in helping me open up my voice and my heart! In just two weeks, beautiful, miraculous things have happened which I link directly to our lessons and the energy unblocked during our sessions!! Connecting the sounds with my energy chakra points, was a beautiful practice! I am so grateful for your intuitive guidance and encouragement! I will recommend everyone to give Heartsong a go, to bring themselves back into harmony with their higher self and build courage in their voice and how it resonates in their body so they can show up more confidently in the world! So much stuck energy was released! When we started working together my voice was shaky, I did not have enough air to breathe properly, my chest felt constricted and even from the first exercises, I could feel my chest expanding and my voice flowing more freely. Regarding the emotional release, this was so epic and unexpected! Thank you for how kindly you held space for me! After our lessons, I sang to my son for the first time since he was a baby (he is 9 now) and HE LOVED IT – there must have been something in my voice as previously he asked me to not sing at all!! This time, he asked me to sing the song you taught me again until he fell asleep… it was a special moment, I am so grateful and thankful for your presence and teachings!’

I also offer Reiki and Spiritual Healing, and can combine these practices in various ways to suit your individual needs.  Please contact me on bryonytree@gmail.com or by phone on 006421647779 (NZ) or 00447533278581 (UK) for a no-obligation conversation.

My HeartSong

I sing from the bottom of my heart
My life opens.

I sing from my life
My heart opens.

My song is my life, deep within my soul it rises
From the core of my being.

It encompasses
