I immensely enjoyed Maya’s workshop on ‘Freeing your inner voice’. My background and work is as an engineering manager for a major oil company, which is to say ‘you don’t have to be a creative free spirit’ to attend, enjoy and get something from this workshop. I came away from the workshop exhausted, having pushed my edge, feeling renewed and centered with a better understanding of myself. To have the opportunity to speak up (through voice) and be heard in a respectful and caring environment is pretty special and rare in our world and it is an opportunity that I recommend to all people.
Maya is a fantastic facilitator. She has the remarkable ability to synthesize movement and voice in a creative and fun way where it seems like we are playing and not practicing and doing exercises. Her work and approach is an example of mastery in how she blends different modalities and helps the participants manifest their own creative process. She is available, vulnerable, understanding and compassionate and is able to meet the participant for their needs. Such a talent as hers is a rarity in the world and something special to observe and be a part of.
