Episode 8: Wake Up The Voices

Location: Brooklyn, New York
“My mission is to wake up the voices. We need all the voices, we need all the songs. No one can be left out. We need all of them, more than ever. The more people can step into owning their power and their magic and their capacity to heal themselves and heal this world, the better.” —Stephanie Rooker
Today we're gliding into the mind of vocalist Stephanie Rooker, founder of Voice Journey. Her practice encourages you to think of your voice in a new, empowered context and use your voice in ways that can change your life—reduce stress, energize the body, increase mental clarity, improve mood, enhance communication, develop leadership skills, enrich relationships, and boost creativity.

Her approach is like a tonic, rooted in tribal and scientific knowledge about fundamental human truths. You’ll hear us talk about the power of listening with our minds AND bodies. Finding our voice and using it to heal discord and pain and expand our capacity for creativity, connection, and joy.


Give it a listen:


Wake Up The Voices — Blissfully Aware
As a kid, Stephanie Rooker was not casual about music. She sang in church choirs, got up and did her numbers in community festivals in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and listened to songs to heal her pain. This is her story.
