Bring Your Voice to the Movement
voice your vision & Value
make positive change
Developed by Lis Addison KiVo is a fun yet powerful practice that blends vocals, rhythm and movement and incorporates ancient methods like chant, sound healing, yoga, shaking medicine and ceremonial dance for transformation, healing and purification. KiVo is a new rendition of the ancient circle dance-song that honors nature, spirit and community and the sacred voice of the person making the sound.
Practically speaking, KiVo helps clear stuck energy, tension and emotional knots and teaches how to use the voice and body for social cohesion and improve the state of mind. KiVo empowers people of all races, ages and religions to voice their vision and value, 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.
