Discover the power of ancestral rhythms and songs

With Isabelle Garceau

Traditionally, songs are shared orally, without writing them down and they are learned through repetition. These ways allow you to feel the songs in your body so that it will remember them in a lasting way. During this workshop, you will learn songs in different languages and practice remembering them through sound and rhythm.

Isabelle Garceau is a natural creator, facilitator and group leader. Passionate about people, she has created and collaborated in several training programs in personal development, dance, expressive movement and creative processes in social, school and community settings. As her roots are part native, she has recreated the weaving of her origins through her research and experiences among Aboriginal gatherings and rituals. For over ten years, she has been involved in the creation of several inspiring training programs that use different tools to inspire, gather and open the heart.
