This book is a divinely inspired manual for discovering and freeing your true voice. Let me be clear: this is no ordinary vocal manual; this is the rarest kind of shamanic scripture in service of humanity. Dielle Ciesco is an extraordinary writer; there is rich artistry in her every sentence, and sometimes her poet’s soul bursts forth into verse so potent it will leave you stunned. “Your True Voice” is the non-fiction companion to Ciesco’s “The Unknown Mother: A Magical Walk with the Goddess of Sound,” which introduced us to the “10 Gates of Sound,” which form the structural essence of the current book also. But now we are invited through those gates directly, welcomed, just as we are, to discover the true voice and vast power of who we really are. Ciesco tells us that one of the main goals of her Transformational Voicework is to help us remove the numerous layers of impressions (not to mention repressions and depressions) that may have accumulated in our vocal channel, so our true voice may be uncovered and liberated. Those psychic wounds may be from childhood traumas or even past life dramas, if you believe in such things (as I do), and to truly purge them from our system is a fire walk, not for the faint of heart. But when has true freedom ever been won without courage, deep introspection and a battle? Ciesco’s tools for this transformational work include journaling, visualizations, meditation, breath-work, mirror-work and awareness of the synchronicities that may appear in our lives, giving us divine clues for our healing process. The various exercises and empowerments she offers here are nothing less than sacred initiations, potent invitations into shamanic journeys that really bowled me over. I love the numerous spicy excerpts from “The Unknown Mother” scattered throughout the book, for Ciesco’s fiction speaks truth far more potently than any nonfiction possibly could. And the stories she shares from her work with clients are moving, powerful, and beautifully illustrate the transformational potency of her work. Although her voice-freeing work is surely prized by actors, singers and public speakers, there is no limiting its audience, for this is therapy for the human soul. In liberating the voice from its many bonds and restrictions, we may be blessed to discover that our voice is nothing less than a manifestation of Divinity itself. This is vocal exploration as a path to Enlightenment, and to the extent you’re ready to dive in it’s going to knock your socks off. The illustrations on each chapter page, I must add, are exquisite. This is an extraordinary book for personal and planetary transformation, a ray of divine light to free the voice of humanity. Call out for it! ~Ram Das Batchelder, author of “Rising in Love: My Wild and Crazy Ride to Here and Now, with Amma, the Hugging Saint”
Your True Voice: Tools to Embrace a Fully-Expressed Life by Dielle Ciesco is a wonderful book that helps us find the power in our own voice. We are taken on a journey through the 10 Gates of Sound in order to find our true voice both in how we communicate and listen. One of my favorite gates is the third gate, “The Alphabet” in which we are shown the importance and meaning behind both words and the letters used to make them. The exercises in this book are absolutely wonderful and helpful in finding our own voice. It is not necessary to have read the author’s first book, “The Unknown Mother” in order to learn and gain insight from this book. Your True Voice stands on its own as an amazingly useful tool to finding the voice within. I acknowledge that I received this book free of charge from John Hunt Publishing in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of the book.
