Birthing Your Wild Voice
Shed old stories around your singing voice
and awaken to her power & pleasure
in service to Life
An 8-week vocal activation course for women,
facilitated by Hanna Leigh
& guest teachers
Waitlist Open for Spring 2024!
Say YES to the yearning:
A journey into the essence
of your true and wild voice...
Do you know the raw power and medicine that lives within your voice?
Have you felt her vibrate through your body and gently sing you open to Life?
Hi! I'm Hanna Leigh
(IG - @hannaleighsong)
and it is a gift and passion of mine to support women in activating the medicine of their singing voices, and to come into intimate relationship with this innate & generous resource that we have!
We women have sounds to release & songs to sing! - new songs, woven with ancient wisdom, which are meant to be medicine for ourselves and this community of Life.
Let's no longer live with the ache of leaving our voices untended and undiscovered, nor the songs of our souls unsung.
Getting wild with a group of women while teaching my song "La Loba" at the Spirit Weavers gathering:
In fast-pasted cultures where stress and disconnection are the norm, our voices are a built-in tool for reconnecting with our natural joy and pleasure of being alive.
Tending to our voices is about much more than singing!
You DO NOT NEED to consider yourself a "SINGER" to deeply benefit from exploring your singing voice.
Developing a relationship with the medicine of your singing voice means that wherever you go, you have this tool & resource with you, and can utilize it to
- regulate your nervous system & open your body to pleasure
- open your mind to expanded perceptions
- open your heart to the warmth of love
- reconnect with a felt sense of gratitude for the gift of being alive
I believe that our voices are both a gift tto be utilized for our own personal healing, and also as an offering to this intricate Web of Life to which we are a part.
This course is for you if:
● You are curious about the unexpressed sounds and songs that live within you (and perhaps feel some fear and trepidation about letting them out!)
● You sense that your voice has healing power and beauty and haven't known how (or been hesitant) to release it
● You really do love to sing and want to do it more! (though may have some judgments or comparisons around the sound of your voice, or some version of the story that, "I'm not a singer.", or "I don't have a 'good' voice."...OR you may have the story that you are a great technical singer, though feel that you want to connect more with the soul of your voice.)
● You desire to discover what is possible through your own voice and how your life will shift in relation to self and others when you become more expressed
● You feel ready to say YES to your yearning to connect more deeply with the medicine and magic of your singing voice
● You actually (and perhaps secretly, even if it really scares you) would like to share your voice more with others
● You feel that a container of loving support and accountability would really serve this intimate process of opening
***As a note of realness here!: You do not need this program to come into the medicine of your voice! Your voice is always available to you for exploration. However, I have found that on my own path, it is very supportive to have a container of accountability, helpful guidance, and reflections from others who are exploring the same themes...so I welcome you into this cohort if you are called.
My prayer is that
In this program you will:
● Shed old stories, fears and blockages around your voice
● Discover new levels of your voice as a resource for self-healing & fulfillment, and as a tool of inner alchemy
● Learn to channel and craft simple, original songs (even if you never have!)
● Learn to listen for the songs of the Nature and bring them through
● Have your voice witnessed and uplifted in sisterhood
● Give permission to the wildness of your voice to be expressed, and fall in love with her natural beauty
● Learn many new songs and how to embody them!
I did not come into my voice through traditional or technical methods. My openings have come primarily through creating time and space to explore the landscape of my voice...through time spent singing in nature, and also through years of singing my prayers in churches and plant medicine ceremonies.
I approach the voice in a very body-centered way...getting you in touch with the feelings of openness and flow...and encouraging you to not get too hung up on the sounds at first. With a background in yoga, womb work, energy medicine, and the exploration of many diverse spiritual paths, I love working with sound in the realms of energy, emotion, and spirit.
Some of my teachers & musical inspirations throughout the years have included:
Chloe Goodchild, Laurence Cole, Aimee Ringle, Murray Kyle, Peia Luzzi, Marya Stark, Lucia Lilikoi, Prabhu Nam Kaur and the plant kingdom...most significantly Ayahuasca.

**Updates & Evolutions to share:
This is the 5th season of "Birthing Your Wild Voice" and there are some new elements that I am really excited to weave into this particular offering!:
In this season of BYWV, there will be an emphasis on:
● Our voices as guides to reconnecting with the pleasure currents in our bodies
● Seeking out and learning songs from the cultures of our own lineages
● Creating regular and intentional time in wild nature to bring through the songs of the natural world
INTRODUCING OUR GUEST TEACHER...
"Vocal Fundamentals: Grounded vocal technique to navigate the world of your sound"
on Thursday, August 10th @ 11am PDT w/ Anne Walsh
Anne Walsh is a singer, vocal healer, and transformational coach. With a background in classical singing, she has a BA in Vocal Performance and Music Education. Her technique lays a foundation for clients to experience play, vocal finesse, and cultivate deep listening. Anne’s background in opera and choral singing informs the technique that she builds into the fabric of her sessions that synthesize together all components of vocal production as they intersect and relate with our own unique operating systems and beliefs we have that surround the voice.

What Women Are Saying:
I am grateful for every moment spent singing with this woman! Singing with Hanna Leigh is like swimming down into the body, opening the channels, and letting song pour out. It's finding the places in me that are tender and stuck and massaging them with sound. It's hearing glimpses of my true voice interwoven with stories, conditioning, and fears, and allowing space to untangle all the threads so my voice can fly free! It's deeply personal and at the same time longing to be witnessed. Hanna has such medicine in guiding this process."
Jessica Eggleston, Horse Whisperer @ Lead Mare Collective
I fully enjoyed the safe container that Hanna Leigh created for me to express my voice and awaken my inner song.
I have always loved to sing but with that came a fear of singing aloud for others. This was one of my main things I wanted to bust through during this mentorship, and I’m happy to report that my confidence in my voice has skyrocketed. I now share my voice and my songs with no hesitation.
The healing power of the frequency and vibration of our own voice is untapped potential for many, and now, thanks to this mentorship, its a powerful tool that I use every day.
Hanna Leigh is genuine and heart-led. I felt incredibly safe and held the entire time. She encouraged me and got me out of my comfort zone. She’s also funny and was a complete joy to get to know. I loved the entire process so much that after the first round of mentorship, I immediately signed up another round!
Thank you thank you thank you!"
Mary Grace, OBM
I'm so grateful for all that came through in the singing mentorship with Hanna Leigh. I see how I’ve grown in my singing voice and the courage to share songs with others, as well as the capacity to hear songs in nature and the increased awareness of how to send vibration through my body as a healing force. This experience was truly more than I could have imagined.”
Kara Morton, Massage Therapist and Acupuncturist, CA
I never know what to expect when I join a call with Hanna Leigh, but by the end I feel more integrated, aligned, out of my head and in my body. I leave our time together feeling energized and grateful for life and the beautiful technology of music!”
Catheryne Harsh, Author and Poet
Since working with you I have experienced a beautiful opening in my voice. I have noticed that without putting any pressure upon myself, I am weaving the portals of my yoni and throat chakra with divine grace. This is exactly what I longed for before working together. I see how it has also impacted me placing pleasure as my priority amongst all other things.
I can now clearly see that when I'm singing, I am in my happy heart. However, if I haven't sang I literally feel constricted inside.
I have a stronger desire to sing daily and I am bringing my love for singing into my daily activities especially in prayer. Thank you so so much for working with me. It brings me great joy sharing you with my clients and other people I know who can benefit from your services."
Natalie Kwait, Intuitive Healer and Empowerment Coach
Greetings to you in this precious moment of Life as you read these words.
I'm Hanna Leigh and I am honored to be your guide and fellow student on this path of healing sound.
I believe that our own voices are an immensely untapped resource for personal and collective transformation.
We need this built-in tool now more than ever, so that we may regulate our own nervous systems and literally sing our visions for personal and collective healing into being!
On my path of having tried dozens of different healing modalities throughout the past 15+ years, singing is something that always calls me back home.
My voice is a built-in metric for where I am open and where I am blocked...
and she can gently navigate me to a place of more openness.
When I distill down my desire to sing, it is this:
FREEDOM, JOY and BELONGING.
Beyond having a "good" voice...what does your desire to sing represent to you?
A bit more about me...
As a child I grew up singing devotional music in church, and always liked singing.
It wasn't until my late 20s that I actually gave myself permission to acknowledge that singing was a part of my life's purpose, not just something I liked to do as a closet hobby (in the car or in the shower!).
Since then I have:
- Co-created two musical albums (working on a third!) and a single
- Led dozens of group singing circles in my local communities, online & at larger festivals,
- Served musically in plant medicine ceremonies for 10+ years
- Become a mentor for other folks who yearn to open their singing voices
I am constantly bringing through simple songs of the moment that help me connect to a deeper truth than the narrative my mind may be telling me. (Highly recommended!)
I am a student of the emotional and spiritual alchemy that happens through our sounds and our songs, and I believe that each of our bodies know the way...
the way to bring forth what is authentic...
the way to sing ourselves into the remembrance of freedom, and joy, and belonging to this living earth.
Authenticity is what we're going for here - that's where the nectar is - not in seeking to have "pretty" voices according to some external standard!
My prayer for this course is that by investing yourself in this way, you will experience a creative rebirth, and a deepening intimacy with yourself and the earth. My prayer is that you will come to know and trust the medicine of your voice more deeply, and have the courage to share this with the world in whichever ways you are inspired to do so.
So, in the spirit of freedom, joy and belonging, let's journey together!
