"I started the first day with an empty part inside myself and left the second day filled with love, inner fullness and connection - to me, to the group, to Suyana, to the life and of course to my voice. Since I attended the Opening the voice Workshop I sing everyday again and my whole body is swinging. Suyana led us very soft and gentle out of our comfort zone and created a space, where everything was welcomed like it was. She showed us that everyone can move and touch people very deeply with the own voice like it is. I'm so grateful that she followed her inner call to serve others with her voice. It is full of peace, light, softness, power, dedication - and brought me to tears several times. Definitely one of the most heart-opening events I've every experienced."
"I just attended Suyana's 'Opening of the Voice' workshop.. After performing and teaching soundhealing for over 23 years myself, I am very impressed by her natural ability to teach this delicate craft of voicework in a way that I can only describe as pure and heart-centered. Listening to her voice it becomes clear that she has the rare and precious gift to be able to reach ones heart and soul. But I could never have dreamt that she would be able to ignite that gift so effortlessly in others.
Her teaching comes straight from the heart and ignited the group from the first minute. I was amazed at how quickly she had her participants opening their voice and singing from their soul, often being brought to tears. The work was profound and deeply moving. By the end of the workshop, the whole group had literally changed. Suyana is a gifted healer and teacher. I highly recommend her work".
Hello Suyana, Thank you for this unique experience with you! I could have not imagined it. You have such a beautiful voice. If one lays there so relaxed, one does not know where the sounds come from of the singing bowls and your voice. You are filling the whole space! You have found the frequency of my body and touched my innermost being. Blockages were solved and I saw so many pictures. A meditative journey in which you guided me and accompanied me. I hope for many people that they can experience you and your songs. You are an enrichment! Lovely wishes
I came to the workshop with the point of view of having a blocked voice. Instead of techniques to "fix" my voice I learned to see and to use the beautiful parts of my voice. As a consequence, loads of blockages and shame dissolved naturally! Such a wonderful approach! I loved the way you led us through moments of stepping out of the comfort zone in a playful and affectionate manner. With your tender and encouraging voice carrying us and allowing us to flow. To discover the healing effects of my own voice was truly magical. In the end it's a matter of trust - in myself and in life. This is a big thing to experience. It made me softer and stronger at the same time. Endless THANKS to you and your love that is felt in how you treat others and especially when you sing! Lots of love
'Suyana has an incredible way of helping participants connect with their heart, to allow the songs of their soul to emerge naturally. The two day 'Opening of the Voice' workshop was a precious gift which helped to strengthen that bond between my voice & heart. Exploring sound in such an open & intimate setting enriched my confidence and helped me reach new levels of trust. I would recommend this course for anyone interested in expanding their self-expression & opening the doors to creativity.
The workshop covered many aspects such as breath work, toning, group & individual singing, chanting, sound healing and intimate group exercises which seemed to dissolve many of our layers of doubt & hesitation. It was quite amazing how deep we went in two days and how far we travelled together in this journey of sound. Attending this workshop has inspired me to direct more focus towards singing & also served as a reminder to remain in that silence of the heart-space.'

The combination of a women's circle with the singing was so beautiful. Until now I was always skeptic about women's circles because I believed that women were not ready to have integrated the unique combination of the softness and strength needed to guide such a circle. You proved the opposite for me.. I also discovered that maybe singing IS my 'thing', despite that I am singing out of tune my whole life. I know now I want to keep singing and exploring with my voice. Thousand times thanks to collect and offer your softness and strength! Much love.!

Being a massage-therapist myself, I naturally have high demands when it comes to receiving treatments. Suyana has what it takes to fulfill them - a high sensitivity for the needs of the client, connectedness and a deeply nourishing energy flowing through her hands.
I deeply enjoy the healing spaces of relaxation and release she is able to create through her touch and voice. It always leaves me peaceful and serene in body and mind for days to come.
Suyana's treatment is a most delightful journey back home to yourself, touching and nourishing body and soul alike.
Dear Suyana Thank you so much for this women’s circle. It was amazing and just what I was longing for. I really needed support and sisterhood in this moment, needed to be held and this was exactly what I received. It was so nourishing to meet up with these beautiful women. I loved the singing together, finding my voice and expressing myself in the save space of the circle. It inspired me and brought me back on my path to share my light and gifts with others as well. Thank you for your devotional work, it is so necessary that women realize the beauty and power that lays inside..

Her wonderful music is opening a space of quiet time with yourself, a space for healing, of space of deep connection, a space of pure joy and bliss – a space to truly be.”
Participant of Singing Circle °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° I had a marvelous experience at Suyana’s Opening of the Voice workshop. The workshop was not about learning how to sing „properly“, but it was all about giving yourself permission to sing, about letting your singing flow from the heart. I tend to think a lot, and to hesitate doing something before it is „good enough“. The workshop was a powerful liberation from that attitude: I was able to stop thinking so much, and to start doing without putting pressure on myself.
The workshop progressed gradually from putting us at our ease to taking us out of our comfort zone. Especially during the second day, Suyana built up the exercises so that more and more safety nets and crutches disappeared. At the same time, we built up experience and confidence so that every step was manageable. At the end, I arrived in a state of complete spontaneity and flow that came completely from within myself – I sang my heart out, as the phrase goes.
It was also a healing experience: some old insecurities within myself were healed, and some equally old insecurities about the outside world were healed as well.
The workshop was a weekend of growth for me. I grew in many small and gentle steps. I feel more confident about singing, and started transferring this new-found spontaneity and freedom to my bass guitar playing.
I think what makes it so easy to open up in your workshop is your loving and authentic presence. Opening one's voice is a very intimate process and you create a sacred space where one can sink down into the realm of the soul. You guided us through different phases of this process with thoughtfully chosen exercises, a mixture of challenges and playful experiences. What impressed me most on the first day was how strong a healing tool my voice can be. As I am personally going a path of healing for many years I was really touched when being of service using that tool and could feel the healing effect it had on me at the same time. Between the different stages of our journey you made it easy for us to process and let everything sink in. Using your lovely voice you created a save space where one was taken back in time to a memory of being sung to by our mothers or grandmothers when we were small. I realized or even better, remembered on this weekend how one's authentic voice is a reachable tool for us to express our truth and innermost feelings. Thank you so much, Suyana for this exceptional experience and for igniting a spark....
Singing is one of the most beautiful thing we can do in this life. What Suyana transmits during her « Opening of the Voice » workshop isn’t just to teach you how to sing, but to help you find your own Inner Voice which you’ll then be able to use for Healing. Healing through the Breath is a powerful and beautiful tool ! What I learned within 4 hours of workshop brought me so much. I’ve been intrigued to explore my voice because some spontaneous melodies come out of my mouth since I’m drumming with my medicine drum. Suyana showed me how, through breathing properly and fully, the sounds can resonate and vibrate in my heart while coming out in a way I would have never imagined. I would totally come back to explore my voice on a deeper level with Suyana and would recommend this workshop to everyone. Opening our own voice isn’t easy but once we start, we feel better and more empowered to go through life with self-confidence. It’s also a kind of release. Suyana definitely helped me bring my own consciousness of the sound of my voice to the next level.
Throughout my life very few things have soothed the discomfort of being in my body. With the guidance of Suyana’s weekend workshop ‘Opening of the Voice’ I am continuing to discover the solace and comfort that singing can offer. Her teachings, exercises and practices are laced with a deep compassion for each individual regardless of the personal backgrounds and stories that accompany us.
Recently my vocal range has deepened significantly with thanks to sex changing hormone treatment, but it wasn’t until working with Suyana that I was able to truly celebrate this new depth of tone in my voice. The most freeing thing I kept realizing is that my voice doesn’t need to be trained to technical precision in order to have a deep emotional impact within myself or someone else. Since the workshop I have created a daily practice of connection to my voice. This has become a precious time for appreciating my body and all the beauty it holds inside, regardless of how it may appear outwardly. Opening of the voice has added fuel to a fire that was quietly burning inside me. My life is now gathering a lot of momentum down an unexpected, but inarguably beautiful path. The music inside me is slowly, but surely being revealed to the world.
I am beyond grateful for Suyana and this experience.
'It was such a magical experience to attend one of Suyana's Women's circle. An experience I will never forget. She creates a safe, comfortable and loving space for everyone and facilitates such deep healing. To describe Suyana is to describe love. The world is a better place because of people like her, and I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and learn from her. Marita https://www.maritamaeland.com
Dear Suyana, I would like to give you a few words of love that come from the heart. In 2017 your music has found me. A few friends have turned on tracks of yours and since then something has changed in me. Your voice has been present in my life every day since then. You shine the way with your singing prayers and now finally I have found my voice again. Through you. You were like a tuning fork for me and I'm getting closer to myself. Never has a human touched my heart so much as you have. Your voice sounds like a world full of angels and everywhere the light is on the sun. Flowers and butterflies. Thank you Suyana for giving me the way to my voice. Even if you did not know anything about it, you did it. I want to tell you that. You are an inspiration to me and finally I have the courage to show myself even more and to let what is in my heart flow. Thank you for your songs and prayers. You are a precious gift and love that has become visible. I send you my regards and bless you. Continue to beam so beautifully and I wish to hear you sing live someday and to see you. Only the best for you Tanja Sutter

Normally I don’t sing around others because it doesn’t feel natural to come out. But we did beautiful warm up exercises to really be in our hearts and learn how to use our voice directly from feeling our heart, so it felt natural and harmonious from within. It was a beautiful opportunity to explore my own ranges and to be received by others. It definitely made me feel safer to explore singing and I look forward to play with the exercises she offered and continue to find confidence in my own voice." Michelle Muller
"Like so many of the other participants, I had been silenced by experiences in my early life. I had lost confidence and joy in my own voice, and had forgotten what it feels like to let my voice ring out. As a young child, I still had that shameless, natural connection, but it dwindled and disappeared over the years. Suyana's Opening of the Voice workshop created a safe, caring space where I felt free to explore my voice. Her exercises didn't just teach us voice lessons, but created a comfortable atmosphere where we could put aside our self judgement. There was another aspect that was surprising and new to me: she taught us to receive each other's voices as well as give our own. Bathing in the joint and individual voices of the group was an unexpected and healing experience. Overall, it was an energizing and joyful session that served to break down some of my inner walls. I'm looking forward to continuing on this path! Warmest regards and thank you very, very much! Much love, "

Sitting in Circle with Suyana is an incredibly special experience. Her beautiful energy creates a safe space where people can be open and honest with each other and with themselves. What really sets Suyana apart is her exceptional singing voice. Her use of mantra and song is incredibly peaceful, while at the same time energizing you. Raising your voice in unison with Suyana and the other women present (regardless of whether you “think you can sing” or not) makes for a singularly wonderful experience that will stay with you for a long, long time..
"I always had the impression, especially with speaking in front of groups, that my voice felt blocked. So I was recommended Suyana’s workshop. From the beginning I was surprised how, with very easy exercises, my voice was opening up and feeling free. And the exercises are easy to integrate in daily life. Suyana’s loving approach and the humorous atmosphere within the group are a very beautiful bonus on top. I can simply and warmly recommend this workshop. With love, "
"Your authentic way of expressing yourself, immediately helped me to allow myself the same.. to speak and sing from my heart. Thank you for creating such a loving and supportive space, that made me feel safe enough to open up not only my voice but also my heart. I still remember that blissful feeling when thoughts disappeared and intuition took over and was leading my voice. What a great joy and liberation it was to find my way back to exploring and playing!"

It was amazing. The women circle helped me to open my heart - for my sisters and also for myself. I love how you are able to reach with your beautiful singing the hearts from all of us. In very short time we built up a beautiful field where everyone is welcome and equal.. Thank you so much for holding such a great space to find inner truth and empowerment Lots of love!
"I'ts not a long time ago that I’ve awakened from a 2 year long nightmare of fear, illness and darkness! A big shift came at the beginning of this year and I experienced the rebirth of myself! Since then I‘m thirsty for more healing, feeling wholeness, peace, happiness and love! So your singing circle crossed my way and I knew I had to go there. I was really curious and excited to experience it but what I found there was more overwhelming that I thought it could be! Since an operation at my throat I have problems with my voice.. Singing has been hard for me but the positive and warm energy and space that was created, the familiar and respectful atmosphere and the lovely people helped me to enter into the flow and let it go… So this was the rebirth of my voice and I experienced that I still can be strong and powerful – singing out loud – singing from the bottom of my heart – releasing my feelings and letting it flow ~ Since then I can’t stop singing! I feel really liberated and see the positive effects of singing the mantras in my whole life! I want you to thank you for all your energy sharing, your warm voice that covers my inner child and calms negative thoughts and vibrations! It was balm for my soul and I warmly recommend everybody to experience this sacred space of light, love and peace!"
Dear Suyana! I just wanted to share with you that we are playing your CD non-stop, and really on request of the children (6 & 4 years old)! I put on your CD in the car when I was really tired of the children's songs ;) and it was time for some music for "mom". They became very quiet and were listening with attention. After a couple of songs Lothar (6) said to me; "Mam, I find it so beautiful that my heart is going wide open and I almost have to cry. This Cd is my second favorite from now on (N°1 is Xavier Rudd's 'Spirit Bird' ;) ). Is that a real angel singing?" Katrien
