A UNIQUE CHANCE TO STUDY WITH A REAL MASTER
NOV 14-16 | CELEBESSTRAAT 6, AMSTERDAM
“Our voice is a clear and immediate reflection of who we really are in this moment. This is an invitation to experience unity by the power of music, emerged with your own power of voice and presence!” Amit Carmeli
The Wild Root stands for life’s energy itself, the source of all creation in each human being. It is wild, yet amazingly harmonious because of its wildness. Every single movement we create in space, every sound-wave we initiate, is born out of our root’s attraction to harmony. Non-interference with this mysterious source within is the secret to being free.
Listening and sensing our voice while singing, allows us to recognize our state of being on several different levels- our body rigidity or flexibility, our attachment to concepts or freedom from those – all reflecting our intimacy with harmony or the lack of it. Experiencing music through your body, breath and voice while surrendering to your Wild Root, allows for a perfect marriage of the musical instrument (our body) with the unique music that we are. Letting the music breathe through us is a powerful act of healing. Singing melody is enabling this healing breathing-pattern to happen. While vocalizing a melody, body and soul are being rearranged, whether we realize it or not.
In the process of Wild Roots Vocal Journey we start with warming up and calming down, preparing our vehicle for the journey. The heart of the workshop lies within four spheres of attentions: hearing attention, liveliness attention – focusing on breath and voice, body attention and attention to the unification of voice, tonality and pulsation of the natural breath. The offerings of the Wild Roots Vocal Journey is strengthening the experience of our true nature, enhancing the awareness of our unique voice and music, deepening the intimacy with ourselves and getting in touch with our creative nature.

About Amit Carmeli
Amit (1970) is a well-known musician, Vocal Artist, Music & sound Therapist and a gifted teacher. For the past 15 years he has performed with the top musicians as well as teaching in Europe and the US regularly. We are so lucky to have him with us.
”Since the day I started hearing music, I realized that the human voice is the ultimate instrument for the boundless expression of music; nevertheless, I have spent 20 years of playing, producing and arranging music without ever opening my mouth. The simple wish for singing was life-transforming, for it revealed the true power of life’s creative energy. In my work I call this energy “Wild Root” and the teaching technique I have named ”Wild Root Meditation”. 3 years of self exploration at the Carmel Mountains in the north of Israel, have made me see and understand Life as Music and Music as Life”.
Ever since, it has been 13 years of teaching people of all ages, exposing and empowering the vital creative force in each and every one of us. Breathing music together with awareness and pure intention of Goodness is a life-transforming process, teaching us about our nature and our longing for uniqueness and unity, harmony and wildness.”
