Voice Liberation Workshop with Neda Boin
May 18, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT$100 – $120
Use your voice to liberate your soul!
CRS welcomes back Netherlands-based singer-songwriter, spiritual guide and Voice Liberation facilitator Neda Boin for a Voice Liberation workshop.
Voice liberation is a unique way where the voice is used to facilitate deep spiritual healing. Weather you belief you’re a great singer or not, using your voice has the powerful ability to instantly bring up the root of our seeming problems, which are the false thoughts we believe about ourselves; ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘I don’t deserve love’, ‘I’m on my own’, ‘nobody truly cares about me’, etc. Neda intuitively guides us to allow these beliefs to come up to the surface, so that they can be seen and heard and so that we can unwind ourselves from these false beliefs and re-discover who we really are.
The workshop will take place on Saturday, May 18, 2019 from 1 – 5:30 pm in the award-winning White Room at CRS (named by Homes to Love as one of nine yoga studios around the world “that achieve design nirvana”) and costs $100 with advance registration and $120 at the door.
Neda’s first album, “The Light Has Come,” inspired by the A Course in Miracles (ACIM) Workbook lessons, was named Best Album of the Year at the Rotterdam Music Awards. She is now touring the U.S., sharing her songs and stories, bringing people together through music to bring us all home. She will also be performing and trading spiritual stories with inspirational speaker Jeffrey Cosker at CRS on Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 7 – 9pm.
Voice liberation is not about singing beautifully, even though when singing from a deep place within yourself where only Love abides, it is inevitable that your voice will touch many hearts… Spirit will facilitate emotional healing by guiding you to get in touch with and express your Inner Voice. You will be supported in using your voice as a gateway to allow what is ready to come up to the surface to be released. If you’re ready for a miraculous trip that will lead you out of ‘the rabbit-hole,’ this is it!

Neda Boin is a singer songwriter from Rotterdam in The Netherlands. In 2013 Neda won both the audience and the jury prizes at the Music Matters Awards, which made her the music ambassador of Rotterdam for one whole year. Shortly after, she graduated from the music conservatory of Rotterdam with a Bachelor of Music. She successfully released her first EP, “When Lambs Become Lions,” in October 2014. She also started giving songwriting workshops in juvenile prison, which she is currently still doing. In 2015 Neda convinced all four coaches of “The Voice” of Holland to turn their chairs around for her, and she made it all the way to the last eight contestants. A student of A Course in Miracles for 8+ years, she channeled her latest album, “The Light Has Come” over a period of two weeks in 2018. Lyrics for each of the songs were inspired by ACIM Workbook lessons. Profoundly spiritual in nature, the songs are also deeply satisfying as songs, with beautiful and irresistible music colored with soul, jazz and world music inflections, brought to soaring life by Neda’s angelic voice, and the album went on to win Album of the Year at the Rotterdamn Music Awards! Neda has lately been using her Course experiences and musical gifts to teach Voice Liberation workshops at David Hoffmeister’s Living Miracles Monastery and elsewhere. nedaboin.com
Neda’s own journey with Voice Liberation in her own words:
I’ve always been singing with al of my heart and soul. But when in 2012 I started my second year in the conservatory of music in Rotterdam, it felt as though that deep liberating feeling I used to feel when singing as a kid, was blocked. I was focused on singing perfectly, on doing it ‘right’. It felt very confusing for me to not have singing feel connected to pure joy anymore and I even thought about dropping out of the conservatory. I wanted to sing freely again, from love, from a place of peace where I could just be sung through, instead of trying so hard. I wanted to find and give expression to my inner voice!
As out of heaven, the ‘Voice liberation academy’ by Jan Kortie, ‘Ode an die freude’ (named after Bethoven’s 9th symphony, meaning ‘Ode to joy!) came on my path and I finished my two remaining years of conservatory at the same time as the voice liberation academy. Voice liberation gave me back my joy and effortlessness in singing. It brought me back in touch with my true Inner Voice and helped me open up to sing from a very vulnerable and honest place.
I never went into the voice liberation academy with the thought I’d be leading voice liberation sessions and retreats myself. I went in to free my own voice, and to be free while performing! Yet, Spirit clearly had more in store! In the spring of 2017, I all of the sudden felt strongly prompted to let David Hoffmeister know that I felt I was supposed to give voice liberation sessions at his one month Tabula Rasa retreat. He was all in for it and I was amazed to feel how easily Spirit was working through me, using the tools of voice liberation to facilitate deep healing.
Since then, I’ve been asked for many more retreats and group sessions all over the world.
