Science is beginning to prove what ancient cultures fully embraced: your voice can become one of the most powerful agents of transformation in every facet of your life. Free Your Voice offers you the liberating insights and personal instruction of music healing legend Silvia Nakkach, whose four-decade immersion in the voice as a creative force makes her a uniquely qualified educator. With co-author Valerie Carpenter, Silvia shows how to reclaim the healing potential of your voice (regardless of training or experience) through more than 100 enjoyable exercises that are steeped in spiritual tradition and classical vocal technique and backed by the latest science.


Free Your Voice invites us to “savor a banquet of our own divine sounds” as we practice breathwork, chant, and other yogic techniques for emotional release, opening to insight, and much more. Supplemented by 32 downloadable digital audio tracks offering Silvia's guidance through many of the exercises, here is a definitive resource for implementing the voice as an instrument of healing and fulfillment, exploring:

  • How to develop a practice of breath and voice, performed with consistency and imagination, where sound designs its own landscapes through the expressive power of the voice
  • A series of sonorous yogic practices that involve subtle movements and the sustained focus of the mind in sound
  • A gentle path for developing a voice that is fully embodied, uniquely expressive, and played like a fine musical instrument
  • Invocatory words and ancient seed sounds that deliver explicit spiritual information for expansion of consciousness and well-being
  • A beginning repertory of mantras and chants from many cultures that you can build on and share as you deepen your practice
  • Techniques for vocal improvisation to engage your singing imagination and enrich your musical offerings
  • How to foster confidence and kindness toward yourself as a vulnerable chanteur of the universal song
  • How to cultivate singing as a spiritual practice for yourself and to serve a larger community


“With regular practice,” writes Silvia, “vocalizing, singing, and chanting become an ordinary miracle that effortlessly leads you to a sense of self-confidence, compassion, and Love Supreme.” Free Your Voice is your guide to discovering, opening, and revealing the full potential of your own voice.

Sorry to hear that some people have been experience difficulties with being able to locate the sound exercises that go along with this material.

For those of you without a CD, there are free downloads available online - http://www.soundstrue.com/freeyourvoice/

First I have to say THANK YOU to Silvia Nakkach!
This book has been transforming my life for the last two months. Tonight, in fact, the guidance of specific exercises and accompanying recordings helped me use vocalization to come through a moment of physical discomfort and emotional unrest. It is such beautiful work, presented in such an accessible fashion, and I have been opened and grounded by it in a huge way.

Many thanks to Silvia for this exceptionally well-articulated book, bringing together ancient wisdom and modern science in a unified approach to Sound Healing.

As a professional musician and teacher, I have found that Free Your Voice provides both a wealth of new info and a fresh perspective on the fundamentals (rhythm, melody, harmony, etc.)--there are many great points of entry here for beginning musicians. I find myself returning to the book again and again to recall juicy bits of info, such as the list of ten principal Rasas (moods or flavors) found in Indian classical music.

The accompanying recordings provide a fun and easy way to learn and begin practicing the sound exercises laid out in the text. Each track is like an ocean of sound you can immerse yourself in and explore.

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, especially those interested in promoting wellness through sound and music. The possibilities are infinite!

I am using and enjoying the book and the tapes that I could download. The cd's are really necessary to make use of the information in the book.

My voice has been held back for so many years that it will take some time to work through all the exercises and get all the cracking and emotional residue released.

I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time and it feels like “the bible” has finally been released!!! I’ve returned to work with Silvia many times over the years and am certain that this is the most compact, clear teaching about the use of the voice and singing as a spiritual practice available anywhere. Silvia clearly defines all the elements of the practices she teaches (e.g. nada yoga, shaba yoga, vocal meditation, medicine melodies etc.) The accompanying CD download allows you to actually do many of the practices and is an essential part of the book. Silvia’s teachings are genuine, neither dry/academic nor overly new age. This book not only guides you into her methods, but she openly acknowledges different teachers and artists she has worked with and learned from over the years (e.g. Ali Akbar Khan, Pauline Oliveros, John Beaulieu etc.), so serves as a gateway to their teachings for those who want to explore them further. Silvia is a treasure seeker who always finds the jewels. Her recommendations for music for contemplative listening and films to see are a lovely addition. I give this book my highest recommendation possible!!!!!

I am so enjoying reading this book. As a student of Silvia's I know what a treasure her work is to this world and it is a blessing to have her wisdom written down.

Being able to sit and read her reflections and tested knowledge about how to use the voice to create inner change is a joy for me. Thank you Silvia.

The book that I purchased referred to a CD with sound exercises that I have been trying to find on your website but I have not been able to locate it anywhere. Can you tell me if the CD exists and is available? This book keeps referring to the CD which is not of big help if we cannot access the CD. It would be better to sell the book with the CD even if it means that it is a little more money. My rating could change if I had the CD but this is now incomplete.
Thank you
