"Taking online KiVo with Lis Addison and learning how sound can help release trauma, stress, tension, anxiety and PTSD . . . I see what a profound affect this could have on students in the future. Since music can be a part of transitions, learning and breaks, it is something that can be easily incorporated into schools." K. Krumholz

make positive change
Join us as we enter the sacred space and wisdom of the circle and incorporate ancient methods like chant, singing and vocalizing with shaking medicine, hocketing and ceremonial dance for transformation, purification - AND FUN!
Developed by Composer, Vocalist, Dancer and Transformation Teacher Lis Addison, KiVo is a fun yet powerful healing practice that blends vocals, rhythm and dance and and brings the ancient circle dance-song to life. Join us as we honor nature, spirit and community with our voices and bodies!
Practically speaking, KiVo helps clear stuck energy, tension and emotional knots and empowers people of all races, ages and religions to set intentions for positive transformation and activate the voice and body to make that change.
"As the individual voice is empowered, so is the global community." Lis Addison
KiVo is a whole body approach to health and well-being. It harnesses the power of singing, which boosts the immune system, increases endorphin production and respiration and moves the body, which is excellent exercise. Your participation encourages this healthy activity to support communities in East Africa. CLICK HERE for more information.
KiVo helps to rewire the brain. Research shows that when we use our bodies and voices together, more areas of the brain are firing, forming new neural connections and encouraging growth as we age.
KiVo honors nature and the community, encouraging spiritual evolution and environmental consciousness. It helps us voice our vision and value and access the wise voice within.
KiVo is a celebration and a process. We understand that our bodies are instruments that require tuning, toning, resounding and playing, allowing us to activate our Divinity.
